easier type of suspension

Postby faytree » Sat Jan 24, 2015 9:28 am

Time to use classic suspension without the use of springs! ( well,sort of )

All you need to do is:
  • attach an axle/hinge
  • set it's stiffness at "HingeConstant" in Script Menu
  • And you're ready to go!

It's as simple as 1,2,3!

Well to be honest,I didn't discovered it all by myself. But I hope that this tip may help new algodooers to make Suspension easier!

Cool. But what about dampening? That is the only issue I can think of...

You mean damping?
Damping/stiffness can be change at The HingeConstant value

Oh, I guess I mean damping. I always thought it was dampening *facepalm*

But the only thing you can really change through HingeConstant is stiffness. I found that it tends to be very bouncy if it is made too stiff. InsertNameHere managed to solve this issue by using multiple hinges. I know he posted a scene demonstrating it but I forgot what it's called...

Also, I did use hinge constant suspension on my Monobike. I found that springs were too buggy at 180 mph :thumbup:
