hello team i’m on this demo

i need to clear all force from car when press R (replace car)
and also a way to get real speed of car in km/h.
( and if someone have simple solution for checkpoint )

Demo update soon with full setting for car and save option
that’s not the best setting now .

looks very nice!

you can try to set the linearVelocity and angularVelocity to zero when press R. like:

car.getRigidBody().linearVelocity=new Vector3D();
car.getRigidBody().angularVelocity=new Vector3D();

the speed with km/h have not added to AWPRaycastVehicle, will add soon.

Thank’s Yang Li work perfect smile

for direct access of car setting i use:

_car = new AWPRaycastVehicle(_turning, _carBody);

that work but maybe a better solution

For reseting I do what Li said and reset the position and rotation of the vehicle

car.getRigidBody().linearVelocity = new Vector3D();
car.getRigidBody().angularVelocity = new Vector3D();
car.getRigidBody().position = new Vector3D(0,500,0);
car.getRigidBody().rotation = new Matrix3D();

some suggestion: the barrels never stop when roll on ground, maybe you can set angularDamping to 0.9 or smaller.

and the follow camera is too tight. I think it should better if make it weak.

very nice!

Suggestions too:
- invert y axis in camera drag
- mouse drag is too sensitive
- follow camera should have drag too, but align towards the back of the target with an intensity depending on the velocity of the object
- starting with the person character starts him underground
- hotkey to hide/show simpleGUI, simpleGUI comes with this functionality
- shadows are too hard, I’ve used the same shadow technique and tweaked it to much better results

Change those things and your demo will be much more playable =)

thanks for help
i make this change
springcamera seem buggy, i need car rotation Y
for shadows i don’t find solution for low power

New road added, more setting and sound

I have little questions to scrape the speed
all mesh is in obj format
any difference if i export to quads intead of triangle for physic simulation or engin ?
ex: track.obj -> triangle = 2416 ko
    track.obj -> quads = 1995 ko

for image what is the best format ?
(test demo with no material)

This looks great.
I am messing with shadows myself. Can you elaborate on how you got them looking like this. My scene is quite large as well, but we’re still looking at large, ugly blocks. I’ve already messed with the .far property of the lens, but obviously i don’t want everthing to be clipped.

Any help is appreciated!
