This would be very nice. You can already set them to explodable, but there is no falling apart of boxes and barrels into debris - or am i wrong?

Well it will soon be possible, when my physics additions make it into the PP, to add constraints to hold things together and then remove them when you want them to fall apart. Have you seen my demo of the punch bag on a chain?

If all you want is to have a damaged object after the explosion one easy trick is to have two models and switch them at the appropriate time, like I did for the moonlander demo. Of course that relies on getting the modellers to make before and after versions of the models you need.



Been there, done that, got all the T-Shirts!

@AmenMoses

Yes, i had done this trick with my time bomb (https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/219519). Falling into debris like in FPSC would be nice, but what you are busy with is even much cooler. Will we be able to join together objects in the editor?

@GraPhiX

Hey, how did you do those particles? I didn't get them to work. I wanted to have some black smoke trails after distruction (see video above). Your physics videos on vimeo are super cool. Years ago i played around with similar effects like chains and pendulums (horror stuff) using the engine "3D GameStudio". But then they changed the physics engine part and nothing did work anymore. This was one reason i left that engine and changed to FPSC. Then when FPSCR came out i had a lot of hope. But i was very disappointed by the first versions and the restrictions. So i left "game making" for a few years. Maybe GG reaches a resonable level soon to proceed . The latest PP is crap, there are to many bugs to have fun .
