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: 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: 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 . Also DYNAMIC MESHES always unchecks on its own in any version. You do...

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

Anyway to have a quicker helicopter speed without loosing control or maybe tilting down less? We need it for quick flying RC helicopters. Than...

I have two surfaces linked to the gravity node. One is a moving platform but car goes through it I attac...

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?

Re: Custom surface for cars?

i enabled use dynamic meshes and added noise to the ground and it works. The car follows the noise displacement. The problem is what if I want my car to drive up onto the platform that starts moving up or over a bridge that opens up it seems that the car falls through because the platform was animat...

Custom surface for cars?

Hi I looked everywhere and could not find it. How do I add a custom terrain for a car?
Does this program support animated terrain surfaces? Like car drives on top of a moving train? Thanks
