Front Steerwheel out of line?
41 Posts

Car works great but the right front wheel is not fixed on its position, when I steer right and left it leave its position and move forward and backward depending of how I steer.

Does Anyone knows what is the cause of this? How do I fix it?

Theres only one thing you can do to fix this, realign the skinmesh with the car wheel, my guess is thats the issue.

To align it properly first uncheck the skinmesh from the car wheel ( disconnect the 2 in the list editor), be sure to show the car wheels, shift right click the wheel to locate its center, then use the menu > Edit > move object to cursor (aligned), then click on the skinmesh.  then connect  the skinmesh to the car object in the list editor, this is the same process for all wheels and on both the car and pcar objects.

nice screenshot.

the issue here is he is not using car or pcar objects, but a custom wheel object with a custom texture so having a separate wheel rigid/skin may not be relevant. [edit: the wheel's 'display geometry' option would be used to show his custom texture]

if the left wheel is fine then need to copy it's settings relative to the right wheel, by moving the car to world centre loc/rot XYZ=0,0,0 and 0,0,0 and comparing the L+/R- wheel values. also should check the wheel is not colliding with the car rigid body when turning by hiding car skin/showing it's rigid.
