Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Making a Strong Chain

Hi, all. I've searched many times for a tutorial on how to create a rope or chain, but every I find doesn't seem to be quite what I want. It's either "You need Physx for this" or "Buy this plugin". I found a video about splines that looks useful, but it seems that splines are just immobile, piecewise curves.

I just want something I can attach a swinging hook to and move around with all the physics of a real object. I tried to just make chain out of rectangular links. It kinda works, but one link with eventually clip through another and cause the whole chain to plummet into the skybox oblivion.

Is the collision not done correctly? Is it even possible to do it this way? Is there a proper way of doing this? Maybe I need a better search criteria to find a tutorial, because I haven't found anything too helpful.

Here's a video of what I have so far. https://youtu.be/HCSeLC6lTzk
