Force tank tracks to spin
badlieutenant posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGHi, Does anyone know how to force animations for tracks on a tank? I want tanks to follow the road in a mission, and I belive this can be done by attaching it to a car with attachto (it appears to work anyway). However, the tracks does not move, so it looks silly. I know that a way to force a tank to move along roads is to make the leader invisible, and use setpos along the road (30-40 meters at a time) and make the tank follow, but this makes for a very sluggish ride. Anyone who has any ideas (preferably a seasoned scripter or developer)?

scotg posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MODELLING - (O2)I everyone! I was hoping to find some help from the community. I'm having trouble with tracked vehicles, and the first problem is with the land contact. I'm not convinced it has anything to do with the LOD landcontact, since that seems pretty straight forward. There's a pic of the problem in my dA gallery: Well, that was supposed to be just a hyperlink, but it just displays the photo I wanted to show anyway. Tank 1 has different sized wheels. However, it's all just an illusion, because I set up the memory points on all wheels the same size as the 3 covered wheels' center and bounds. Mass is also weird, because it's supposed to be a total of 10kg for the components, and 4 weight boxes evenly distributed for actual mass. That's how the sample tank is done. The 3 wheels and drive wheels move, but the front and back wheels do not, as expected for what I did (btw, is there a better way given that same-size wheels are not an option?). The tracks move, and even an AI soldier can drive it, somewhat. IT stays in that position while moving. EDIT 1: I forgot to mention that all the wheels on this tank, except the front two, are dampened all the way up even though they don't touch the ground. When testing in buldozer, they rise and drop together. Tank 2 is about 10 cm off the ground. I placed my character in prone on the far side to sort of make it more clear. The wheels do not move in Eden (although they do in buldozer). The tracks also don't "move" or damper. The tank is driveable; though it is too slow, turns too tightly, and stutters about every 3 meters as if tapping the brakes. Same size wheels are not a problem with this tank, but none of them move. Weird. EDIT 2: This tank also has a similar mass set up as the sample tank, where 4 mass boxes distribute the weight. It seemed less important to mention that here, but I reconsidered. Ok so... I know I'm gonna need to post more pics or screenshots of the LODs in OB, or maybe paste sections of my config and model documents. For the sake of retaining some secrecy on my project and also not posting unnecessary pics on the servers, I want to limit what I post to only what is needed. So, where shall we start? Any help is much appreciated!!
Trying to make a tank with more than 2 tracks
Whitefame posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MODELLING - (O2)Hello, im currently trying to make a tank with four tracks. I can't find any tutorial how to get this working and when looking at the "Arma 3 Tanks Config Guidelines" it says that the all left wheels have to be in one line, and right wheels have to be in one line as well (for physx wheels), which i currently don't have. Is it possible to get a tank with 4 tracks working (and with them not being in line) or can't I make a tank with more than two tracks? View from the front and side. View from the top where one can clearly see that the tracks are not in line.
