I think I messed something up :oops:
I Exported from Max and didn't get a builtin prp file
Just out of curiosity I converted with drizzle and got a whole bunch of stuff

Any ideas?

Damn, looks like Drizzle doesn't know what a bullet manager is :(
Which means the only way to do it on CC is to edit the PRP like I did...

I should be able to setup a gun if you send me the files, but you'll have to remove anything related to the bullet manager...
I'll update the previous instruction set when I have the time.

umm... :oops: :D ..... the files got kinda deleted. However Im gonna try some experimenting later,
In addition It was only my first try Im hoping the error is on my end. If not I guess I'll havta wait until
they update the offline KI......to accommodate the Bullet Manager, in the mean time I noticed the Python was downloaded 4 times
I wonder how the other three are doing and if they're using Max as well.

on a side note Im kinda wondering why Drizzle does not recognize the bullet component if it works similar to the footprint component
which is why I think the error may be on my end

Don't worry, I just said it if you wanted to have your version working.
The error is not on your end, though. It's definitely because the bullet manager was never implemented in Drizzle (it's not related to the Offline-KI either).

So the only solution is to edit manually the exported files (which means we'll probably wait until Calena has finished the main part of her cavern).

Otherwise, pushing a real bullet though the gun barrel would be possible, but relying on the physics engine is generally a bad idea (collision bugs, friction/elasticity settings, lags, etc). It also means no decal, and no way to realistically break objects :(

as far as braking objects is concerned setting the sensor region's "report on" to dynamics might cause the region to detect the simple and trigger a responder to start a few animations.
and a decal hmm I used a "active shape" component under footprints so the coconuts in the Chess Pond would produce ripples, although I have not tried it on a vertical plane.

I have noticed that the lag seems to have an effect on how far the simple is propelled,

Hi guys. Merry Christmas :). diafero has installed the first version of my grandson's age on Deep Island, so you can take a look at what's there. The age name is "Gavster". He'll have it up on UAM for download too. I uploaded the Blender version. I haven't quite finished the conversion to 3dsMax7 because . . . umm . . . well . . . I got bored and took a break for the last week :oops: . Conversion is not nearly as fun as building.

The good news is my grandson saw it yesterday for the first time and it has the official 10-year-old seal of approval :D . My thought now is to maybe place the gun inside the ship pointing out a window and blow a hole in the cave wall. I'd appreciate it if you took a look at it when you get a chance and let me know your thoughts.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy your Holidays!

Hello Calena :P
I'm thrilled. Have dared me today in the cave of horror. :lol:
Very, very nice and I hope there is a sequel.

Not sure if any one mentioned this one, but uh.......another thing to remember is when working on stuff in a separate file to add later, make sure your using the same scale

Hi guys, may be this is the wrong thread but i wanted to share this with you.

A few months ago i discovered an open sourced software package i never saw before.

Its an alternative to Photoshop/Gimp and not to difficult to learn and has great painting and brushing abilities not available in Ps.

Give it a try, its realy worth it and it is free!
you can find info at http://krita.org/

or

http://kritastudio.com/desktop.html
Image
There a an info pdf available named " introduction to Krita for Photoshop users" , read it to find out what you can expect
http://heap.kogmbh.net/downloads/IntroductiontoKritaforusercomingfromPs.pdf
Those wonderfull Worlds are called " Ages" , because that is what it takes to build one.

Krita's pretty nice, and it's geared more towards art than photo-manipulation like PhotoShop is (despite the uses Adobe and their customers try to shove into it).
