Hey this project is getting real sweet ! :D
Are those ray cast vehicles ? (I remember you said that you are going to switch to ray cast)
What's the tv3d_scr folder name stands for..., TrueVision3D ?
Anyway, good luck with the release.

Yes, they are all raycast cars.

Yes, I started a thread at truevison forums and posted there these screenshots [url]http://www.truevision3d.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=8861&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30&sid=c40f56970ed71a29c71cb937fd054acb

The simulation seems pretty fast and robust , and i guess it's pretty CPU cheap, allowing alot of cars running at high speed.
Given the fact that almost all fast racers out there use that,plus some early GameStudio Newton demos , i wonder if the file "CustomRayCastCar.cpp" in latest Newton SDK(which is empty at the moment) is going to be implemented or if someone wants ray cast, he must do it by himself ?

Kick ass. It reminds my crazy taxi the game. I like it a lot.

Thank you :D

But in fact destruction is all carried by Newton - in my code it's just 100 lines, so all credits go to Julio!


In next game I'm planning more sofisticated model with pseudo-FEM - I'm curious if my ideas will work - but similarly - it will be built on Newton.

The lesser whell mass is the better behaviour is but 5kg wheels doesn't provide enough grip and like to jump without reason


exactly what i seen in my car joint test project, i didn't think it was
bug, i thought i was doing something wrong :shock:

It is not a bug the suspension is too tight.
Correct me if I am wrong but wasn’t that the video in which Tomek was calibrating the suspension with a gravity of 30, and the running with a gravity of 10?
That will produce the exact same effect you see in the video. In fact it will be wrong if it did not do that.

right, if you put that vehicle in such situation onto roof the vehicle will
be pulled into air, it is being pulled into the direction that faces the car
bottom, that can't be normal..

But it is normal. I said before you can not make the spring indefinitely tight, which is what happen if you call balance tires with a fake gravity value.

You can not take the springs of the Cap of a 16 wheeler and place it into a pickup it simple not going to work.

Anyway I am sorry if is not working for you I can only provide what I know and give advise of how to use it, I can not be held responsible for the user’s interpretation and implementation.

Right now I am learning tricks from other users that I did not even know were possible. I know the Vehicle joint is a little twitchy and have some problems this is why I said I was going to work on it, but I also know that no matter how much it is improved, the improvements are not going to make up for doing improper things.

here is new short video http://www.tmreality.com/seaside.avi 8)

sorry for shortness, but traffic on my site is near bandwidth limit(in may I've got gigs of downloads!) :lol:

EDIT:

BTW once I wanted to overttake Walaber in number of posts but it seems to be impossible until you are Julio Jerez :wink:

It's very nice to me when you like my work :D

BTW I'm showing these videos over the net to attract new users - it seems to be catchy as bandwith of my site is almos exhausted and I need to upper the limit :lol:
