Problem with friction Author Message

 Post: #1 Problem with friction I'm trying to make a character controller, but for some reason the actor always gets stuck on the terrain like the friction is very high. I tried disabling all the friction on the character actor, disabling gravity, but the problem is the same. When the actor is in the air, it controls as expected, but the moment it touches ground, it completely stops, except for tiny motion when moving downhill. How to fix this problem? For the controller I'm using the code from the tutorial: Code: ```Physics.startSimulation().stopSimulation();       Flt s=3;    Vec vel(0, 0, 0);    if(Kb.b(KB_W))vel+=!PointOnPlane(Cam.matrix.z, Vec(0, 1, 0))*s;    if(Kb.b(KB_S))vel-=!PointOnPlane(Cam.matrix.z, Vec(0, 1, 0))*s;    if(Kb.b(KB_A))vel-=!PointOnPlane(Cam.matrix.x, Vec(0, 1, 0))*s;    if(Kb.b(KB_D))vel+=!PointOnPlane(Cam.matrix.x, Vec(0, 1, 0))*s;    ctrl.update(vel, Kb.shift(), Kb.bp(KB_SPACE) ? 3.5 : 0);``` (This post was last modified: 10-18-2023 07:48 AM by Outdoordoor.)

 Post: #2 RE: Problem with friction To fix the problem I made a workaround which uses a separate helper controller. Here's the code if someone needs it: Code: `helperCtrl.createCapsule(0.4, 1, ctrl.center());` Code: ```double camYaw = ActiveCam.yaw;       Vec vel(0, 0, 0);    if(Kb.b(KB_W))vel+=Vec(Sin(-camYaw), 0, Cos(-camYaw)) * speed * 50 * Time.d();    if(Kb.b(KB_S))vel-=Vec(Sin(-camYaw), 0, Cos(-camYaw)) * speed * 50 * Time.d();    if(Kb.b(KB_A))vel-=Vec(Cos(camYaw), 0, Sin(camYaw)) * speed * 50 * Time.d();    if(Kb.b(KB_D))vel+=Vec(Cos(camYaw), 0, Sin(camYaw)) * speed * 50 * Time.d();       helperCtrl.actor.ignore(ctrl.actor, true);    helperCtrl.update(vel, Kb.ctrl(), Kb.bp(KB_SPACE) ? 3.5 : 0);    ctrl.actor.pos(helperCtrl.center()-Vec(0, helperCtrl.radius(), 0));```
