Units scaling

Post by LaRiKa »

Hey guys,

I think some of you were facing the same problem we do, now.

I took the Spring tutorial game, created a nuew vehicle unit, did the scripting, the texturing, the modification of the builder and all works fine except one:

My unit looks like a RC version of my unit, it is 10 times smaller than it should be. What do I have to do to get it the size I want to have? Is there a way to tell the engine by script it should scale the unit?

Another thing is: My wheels are spinning around the X-Axis of the car, not around it's own X-Axis. So they are looping in the air und then underground. Did we forget something in upspring in order to make them work correctly or is the command Spin(tire,x_axis,rad(90),rad(30)) not correct?

Thanks in advance,

LaRiKa

Nope, you can scale in upspring fine. However, if you say did this:

Scale:
X 1
Y 1
Z 4

You will mess up your normals.

Always scale evenly on all axis otherwise scale before you import to upspring.

Set the origon point of the wheel.

Also, for me it seems that if I uniform scale by less than 0.5, I also get bad normals.

And yes, you should set the origin point in upspring. Good Luck!
