Hello together,

i have a question again :mrgreen:

so i want to make a steering wheel animated ... so that you can see the steering wheel turn around if you turn left or turn right :)

maybe you can help me - thanks!

greetings

Only idea right now is to make it a wheel, like the wheels on the vehicles, since they already steer into the direction the car moves.
Maybe you need to modify the code and/or model a bit, but the wheels already do what you need, so you need a 5th wheel on your car and replace it with a steering wheel and then somehow make it not have collision, so it does not interfere with the driving and physics.

I thought about this when I was making a jeep model and I believe the triggers are there but optional.

From the docs:
"Steering animation
Optional non-cyclic animation called 'steering' that animates from t=0 (full right) to t=0.5 (center) to t=1 (full left)."

So I think you could just add your animation to your vehicle's steering wheel and trigger with the default. I wish I had more time right now because I've been meaning to try this.

hmm i think we talk about different things ... i mean the steering wheel animation not the steering of the wheels ...

thanks!

Yes, but the weels also steer, so you just need to rotate it, put it in place where the steering wheel is and done, stupid hack idea of mine.

Don't use my idea, use the proper way from the manual.
