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.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
