Animations

Hi, Even though I'm aware that animations exported in .3ds files are currently unsupported, it probably won't do much harm shedding some light onto it already. While diving through the 3ds files correspondent to the "Auto center model" topic with the "Opener" tool, I noticed that...

Hi VilleK, Sorry for the confusion, this difference is caused by resetting the XForm before exporting. Also I was incorrect about the pivot being animatable ... and while it seems like you can do this, it actually just offsets the Mesh Matrix and stores the movement in a position/rotation keyframe o...

ZGE

:idea:

Did you know ZGE is actually a acronym for "Zero Gravity Effect"? Makes up for a great denotation of your lightweight / easy-to-get-into editor 8)

Hej VilleK, Almost, but not quite. The pivot is being taken in consideration now .. which is good, although it seems to be inverted, but there is something else going on that shouldn't happen. This is going to be tricky to explain ... The behavior you mentioned when trying to export from Maya, is ac...

Hej, COG stands for "Center of Gravity". I presumed you actually used that approach for calculating the center of a model automatically ( average x,y,z value of all vertices ). I did notice the difference with the "Auto center model" setting turned off as well. Then the COG ends ...

Hej VilleK, No I'm not Swedish .. I did however used to live in Göteborg :) Anyway .. I've attached a .3ds containing a 1x1x1 box with it's pivot at 0,0,0 and it's cog at 5,0,0. The easiest way to visualize the problem is to set the model's RotationVelocity.Z. And yes, it does import back into my 3d...

Auto center model

Hej,

The pivot / center of imported objects seems to be set to the center of the mesh automatically regardless of the "Auto center model" setting when importing 3ds files. Potential bug?

Hej VilleK,

No problem, as you mentioned, a series of IF statements will do the trick for now as well.

Kind Regards,

Switches

Hello,

Are switches ( switch / case / break ) already implemented in the scripting language? When I type "switch" the text does become bold, but I haven't been able to get it to work yet.

Kind Regards,

:roll: Collision tests are only made between models with the Category-property set to match the definition in a DefineCollision-component. So for instance a Model with Category set to 0 does not have any collision tests and no cpu-time is wasted on this. Ah of course, should have realized that. I ag...

Hej VilleK, Understandable .. but you might want to change it sooner then later if you agree with the deficiency. Take some time to let it sink in ;) The same thing goes for Light(s) / Camera(s) by the way. Currently you have those values fixed as App properties. I think the component idea that you ...

Hi VilleK, When reproducing the problem, I noticed I was actually mistaken about the Velocity issue. This was due to me being unaware of the Velocity property being multiplied with the DeltaTime by default. Probably should have read the Component reference more carefully :roll: Concerning the 3ds fo...

Hi, I'd like to see the Collision properties ( and it's associated OnCollision state ) of a Model removed and replaced by Collision components ( in a similar fashion as KeyPress ). I think this will still be intuitive enough for beginners, but opens up the possibility for models without collision, h...
