New Documentation Suggestion

Given the complexity of the vehicle physics I think more documentation is needed cos the actual forums and its members ARE NOT HELPFUL!

general questions on vehicles physics

i really think Bepu should post up some documentation on how to use the vehicles physics for the newbies. It is promising but I just dont get it..Is the BebuPhysicsDrawer necessary? becasue the only way to get a models worldtransform is through the ModelDrawer. I tried using the BebuPhysicsDrawer to...

Re: raycast wheels

when I ran my project it was just one wheel model at the origin. How can I link Vehicle.Wheels[k](of the physics engine) to Model wheelModel(of xna graphics) because it seems the wheelModel is not using the vehicle.wheel properties I assigned to it.

Re: Custom car fbx model

Thanks for the swift reply. The demo link i sent you was done with the individual bone animation of each wheel (the four of them) with quaternion rotation of the whole model when steering. My question was how I can achieve the same demo using the bepuphysics engine. Thank you very much.

Re: Custom car fbx model

HI I am still trying to learn this wonderful physics engine but i'm a total newbie. I figured how to render the wheels with different orientations(up and down)<thanks to you>. But this time around I designed a car model in max and i want to use it in the engine. I wanted to achieve something like th...

Re: Custom car fbx model

I figured that part out thank you but now i need to figure out how to assign unique matrices to each asymmetrical wheel to orient it properly...please sow me an example
