How do I make a rotating platform that knocks you off?

  • I have a rotating platform, but the problem is my player doesn't slide off when it looks like they should. How do I make it so that, at certain angles, my player slides off the platform? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    He should slide off at any angle higher than this but he doesn't

    Here's a capx

  • I won't be back at my computer till later today, but now that i see it.... Physics behavior on the block might be a good start. This will allow in-game gravity to take over, almost like in the real world.

    You'll probably have to mess with the settings to get it how you like.

    Yeah that's what I tried, but I didn't know what settings to change in order to get it the way that I wanted. I'll keep trying though.

  • I'll be at my laptop in about an hour or so, to better help.

    I can't remember the exact properties, but usually the top properties are the most important.

    Have a look at physics

  • Hey. So, honestly, I think this might constitute a bug. I might consider submitting a report for it - my player sticks to the spinning platform and almost always gets pushed back on top without falling off. It's bizarre.

    I made a work around for you and added some comments. I hope its helpful at this point.

    It does work somewhat, but not exactly what I want. I see what you were going for, though, and it can work if I tweak it a bit for my needs. Jeffige was telling me about Physics so I might go that route, but I'll just have to see.

  • Best of luck! If you come up with something that works better please let us know!
