Ropes: binding & hanging things

Recommended Posts

IIRC there was a whole discussion about binding things to ropes. I don't remember where it is, though. I don't recall the conclusion, but my own experience with attempting this showed that the bound item did not behave as expected (the rope would go this way and the item would go that way). Probably due to the physics of the rope, which has multiple sections.

I think the discussion was on Pranqster's map about the pagan village, he was making a lot of tests on binding the boards to a rope bridge and the problems you would get... I would also be interested in knowing if you could transfer energy like that, a weight tied to a rope that hits something else and knocks it over (like a wall), but it appears to be impossible?

Ok this has just reminded me of an old question:

 

Why is it when the player drops/jumps onto or steps on to something that is moving like the above, the player dosent move..? its very immersion breaking. :-(

 

I would like when the player is standing on the pallet that he/she swings with it etc.

Just take it for granted that D3's physics system is borked & can't do very much.

Be nice if somebody out there rigged a good physics system in id4, but it'd take a lot of work.

I'm just hoping we're lucky some other group does it and we can take it, because I don't think anyone on our team has the time to do it.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

If it's anything like hanging bodies, if you move the thing it's going to shake like CRAZY all over the place, very glitchy. Maybe a bigger object like a pallet won't suffer from that issue. Good luck.

Well another idea is to build a complete brush/patch model of assy and then make it a chain entity, I will give that a try and see how it behaves.

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
