Re: Going faster in a helicopter without loosing control

Yes, at certain limits it will spin out of control so no you are not able to get it to behave as quickly as an RC Helicopter can be. My work around suggestion would be to simply animate in the "slower" speed and then bump up the speed of the frames/compress the keys created to make it look quicker....

Re: Flat tire

Re: Going faster in a helicopter without loosing control

maybe in a future release you can introduce less tilting forward at high speeds and auto stabilization at max speeds similar to your two wheeler where it does not fall when not in motion unlike the madcar. this is a real rc cooper at 173 mph https://youtu.be/N4jeLF2VD04?t=1m48s and it is stable as a...

Re: Custom surface for cars?

By the way I tried with one surface with release version 16 in 3ds max 2017 and animated terrain going up and down, forward and backwards and the car still did not go up or down almost like the terrain was treated as stationary .

You should only have one surface (one polygon) not two in order for it to work properly.

Hi Patrick,
maybe you know about this bug but after simulating helicopter, then playing back the animation and then closing 3ds max. 3ds max will crash

Re: Custom surface for cars?

Another update:
after I click use dynamic meshes and then hit close and go back to the main preferences the box is unchecked again. For some reason it is not saving this option
maybe thats why I cannot drive on animated surfaces?
