there are a lot of glitches in this game, especially in the physics. eg. falling through things, getting stuck inside of things, etc. i just want (for now) an environment that the character can run around in.
the problem may be that the movement control has too small a radius, but when i make the box bigger or change the radius, my character goes flying off into oblivion. what am i doing wrong?
i’ve included an untextured, leafless/foamless .blend file for testing. feel free to comment on anything. it’s a floating island with a waterfall
i’m finding this very difficult, at the moment, and would appreciate any help.
oh, my! you’ve solved my problem! thanks a lot. it seems quite obvious now. another quick thing, do you know any mods i could make to the current physics to make the little guy move at a more constant rate? i know i could use linear velocity, but then gravity doesn’t seem to affect it (unless i add, which kind of defeats the purpose) since my scenario is so small he needs to be able to turn quite fast.
thanks for the tips and help. the only problem with the lin velocity is that it doesn’t move at a constant speed, which i suppose is realistic for a block that must overcome it’s inertia, but not for an animal that reaches jogging speed in a second. i modeled the trees myself, basically by extruding a cube and and rounding where it needed to be rounded/extruded, then i used and tweaked a texture from the internets (http://www.blender-materials.org/index.php?action=view&material=263-tree-bark). i then renered my image and baked that onto my tree
the leaves are a simple conglomeration of transparent textures.
