Re: Spinning car on icy road

Here is a testscene I made in 3ds max 2021. https://craftanimations.com/slide_turn_3dsmax2021/ These are the steps I took to create this: Make the 4-Wheeler user a...

Re: Spinning car on icy road

Maybe you could try a combination of skidding and External Force. Position the External Force arrow so that it is pointing towards the rear side of the vehicle and then when driving, hold down the skidding button and press the External force button. I haven't tried this myself, it's just of the top...

Steering Wheel (Right/Left) M...

Re: Speedometer

it's still a pain to look at that little screen and trying to convert numbers to miles per hour and steer a car. Please add a big readable m/h and km/h display like madcar has. You have feet, inches etc but not basic miles per hour Also please add a cruise control that way we can use steering wheel...

Re: Speedometer

Hi, Can we have a regular speedometer. I know there is a setting current velocity in meters per second. Can we have miles per hour or km per hour plus nice digital speedometer on the screen like madcar has. Thanks In the config of the 4-wheeler you have https://craftanimations.com/gauges-4wext/ The...

Re: Truck trailer odd behavior (shaking, jumping, etc)

We can confirm that we have found a shaking issue with the Trailer tool. It seems to be worse the more detailed the terrain the trailer is attached to is.
We are looking in to this problem asap and solve.

Hi,

Go to the input settings. Click on the advanced for steering and change the multiplayer to -1 instead of 1.

Re: Truck trailer odd behavior (shaking, jumping, etc)

It looks like I've been able to resolve the shakiness of the trailers when making very sharp turns, by fiddling with the stiffness value. A lower value (e.g 2000) caused it to start shaking a lot. The suspension jumping (where the rear extra-wheel's were jumping half of their height into the air at...

Re: Proper ground release settings

I agree that this is not functioning that well for bigger jumps. We did have a different jump function before the current and might be better suited. We will check to see if we can add this in again as an option.

I think you guys should improve terrain support. We also use madcar 3 and it never has this problem. Also look at this plugin drivemaster https://vimeo.com/37725832 at 1:45 he just adds multiple surfaces and car drives without any problems. Yes, it would be nice to have this ability, I agree.

Re: 20.1.2 demo version did not respond in 3dsmax

This "freezing" issue most often happens when you have a license pointer that is not able to connect to the license server. Do you have a license server pointer in your license folder? If so, try to move it away for the license folder and try again to start 3ds max with "craftdirectortoolsadaptor_3d...
