my new written tutorial : making realistic train animation

www.3dlab.cjb.net then tutorials

Thank you!

This is what I have been looking for! Next, I will have to look for ways to make the cubes follow a certain path so that it moves like a train.

BTW, I found out that the link to zip appears to be incorrect.

Wish you happy blending!

Check out my tutorial on how to make a train follow a path in the GE at
http://www.bentstraight.org/Tute1.htm

My system probably is incompatible with 3dGuru’s idea but we could trick my system up a bit so all the cars don’t move at once like 3dGuru"s idea

I tryed the “enhancing blender GE physics” tutorial on a project of mine, but with any successfull result.

“Car” (in my game I have not a car, exactly) did not move… So I parented a Cube to the Empty to see what is appening, and I saw the Cube bouncing around crazy all around! With bullet engine it bounced a little less but Car still did not move.

Using Blender 2.41.

thanks 3dGuru
I like the effect the slow parent gives to the “chain”

I want get that feel on my train game. I might try to upload
it this weekend so you can all look at it.

I have uploaded my file here http://mio.discoremoto.virgilio.it/ender.

The file name is fp02.blend, check the checkbox and click on the button labeled “scarica”.

Sorry for the Italian language download page but I do not know where upload the file. Anyway above instructions should be enough.

The test-game I am trying to do is a racing in a tube. Cars have no wheels. They have a magnetic field :wink: . You can find the thread about here http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=61553.

Thank you.
