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"

I would suggest to check out this video series about the vehicle setup:

And then it will be all about playtesting I would suggest. :)

I saw it but I dont understand ... I'm french and its difficult to understand all things in this video. But he doesnt explain for a mario kart like with nice maniabilty and inertie...

ah ok, pas de probleme :D The workflow will be the same, but you need different numbers in some settings.

Just try to build a functionable car. When this works then try to get the mario cart feeling. Try to adjust one part of it after another. When i worked on a vehicle it was the same. Most of the time it is just testing out the numbers and adjusting them afterwards. I had the feeling that it is dependent on so many factors that there is no "the one right setting" it is dependent on so many factors.

Just start with a car that can drive and work from that point on :)

My car is working. I have my wheeled vehicle BP, my 2 class of wheel (front and back), but I dont find the acceleration, the maniabilty and inertie. I try to modify some things but I dont get there... :(

I think the inertia can be set in the wheel BP, I have worked with vehicles a long time ago, so I may be wrong. Check out this video here (and the following in the series) there everything is shown. most of it is set within blueprint scripting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NforiLmU24 I know it's in english, but you could also just watch him do stuff and apply it to your setup.

I watched the video, the acceleration is quite better, but I dont get a good arcade vehicle for a mario kart like. This is so difficult to turn, this is so realistic ... I dont know how to do :(

I watched the video and another too. I saw they did it with a pawn and not a vehicle blueprint class !

ah ok. Yes that makes sence. I hope, I could point you in the right direction ;)
