Rolling Ball

Hey guys, i started using blender not too long ago and was wondering what the easiest way to make a rolling ball would be. i already have the ball made and am making it roll down a hill. Please someone help:confused:


create hill
create ball
make ball roll as you’d like in the game engine
record to ipo in the game menu…

in other words… there aren’t any [recent] scripts for ball motion.

if you don’t mind the ball rolling along a particular axis [like you’d have a tire do]… you could try animating it with an armature, going along a path, and using the NLA window [like you would for a character’s walk cycle] to synch the ball rolling with its motion. Some docs I pulled up [old-ish, and about a walkcycle]:
