Re: Gravity Not Working

I can think of a couple of things that might be an issue. Terrain is not a mesh or a polygon. Mesh has overlapping faces which makes the model "confused". To many polygons used in the terrain (too heavy). Our usual suggestion is to make a copy of the terrain and cut out the terrain part that is need...

Re: Square, trianlge wheels?

The 4-Wheeler does not support other than round wheels. Only the scale of the mesh is taken in to consideration and thus the dummy mesh is only a representation of that and not used for the animation itself.

Re: Workflow - MAX>>MAYA>>MAX

You can, however not with the model itself by using "Save slected..." from the Main menu of CDS and save it as a .prm. This can then be loaded in on Maya to be rigged with the model.

+1 for that. In a mean time you could use my script for speedometer and altimeter. https://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scri ... peedometer
Ah so that your script. Actually a script I recommend to those asking for a speedometer ;)

When you make your simulations make sure simulated object is not far way from origin of coordinates 0,0,0. Otherwise you will have some jerkiness in animations.
Ok thank you for letting us know. We will test it out.

Re: Turning 3ds max default camera to your director camera

Turn? You can always attach any camera to the cameras of CDS and if you need to transfer other movements, like zoom or focus etc you can use Parameter Wiring. Here is for example a guide on this.

Re: Is parking possible using Spline/Path ?

It is possible but it is going to be very hard. Parking goes faster by doing manual driving. Yes, it can take a couple of takes before you are satisfied. What you can do is record using autonomous mode up until the point where you would like to "park" and then switch over to manual control instead a...

Re: Slow Simulating Times

We do not store our data in GC we allocate our own instead. So, trying to truncate the GC does not affect our tool. Do you have a very high poly ground? The more polygons the ground have that the 4-Wheeler is driving on the slower the simulation gets. So, if this is the case I suggest that you make ...

Re: Slow Simulating Times

The reason is that there is a lot of data that is stored in memory that needs to be sorted. For example in the undo and redo memory. So when you restart the 3d program these are removed.

My suggestion is that you can try undo before you start a new simulation to mitigate.
