Advanced coupling truck collisions

#1 Post by Smarty » 21 Aug 2016 20:20

I figured I'd share my 'stub frame' for advanced coupling collisions. Basically, it's a set of collision locators based on the collisions of the Peterbilt 579, attached to a root locator that can be positioned at the hook_t locator of your truck. It includes the three collision locators required for advanced coupling as well as the generic collisions for the rear frame area.

For best results:
  1. Select your existing hook_t locator and snap (shift+s -> cursor to selected) the 3d cursor to it
  2. Import frame_stub.pim
  3. Re-parent the contents of frame_stub to your project, except the hook_t locator! (currently a root object will not export if it contains collisions only)
  4. Repeat for each frame variant, remembering to set part associations.
I'm not sure how many others are using BT for creating trucks, but hopefully someone finds this useful.

Is that an indication that ConverterPIX is close to having collisions support? :D

Yep. Almost everything is finished, except belonging collisions to parts (in .pmc files this is not described, only collisions to variants) but it is doable.

That's exciting! I may not have to re-create the collisions on cargo models after all. :D
