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"

Advanced Vehicle Wheel Rotation & Collision problems

I have setup my own custom vehicle based on the tumbler or batmobile from Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy.

The vehicle is able to drive forwards and backwards correctly but cannot turn its wheels for steering.

The solution may be the wheels collision, using the execute console command (pxvis collision) I brought up the collision and as you can see the scale and positioning of each wheel is way off. alt text

Due to the natural design of the car the weight distribution particularly the back wheels have been a big problem. I was forced to set each wheel's body to an equal mass which fixed many things as before I did this the front and back wheels would move like a seesaw.

Here is the wheel setup I have: alt text

Inside the physics asset of the vehicle you can see the custom collision I have made inside the unreal engine. Currently all my wheels have 100 mass and have a default collision type. Maybe the solution is kinematic?

Here it is: alt text

Any suggestions to fix these problems would be great, thanks!
