Add the Start Position or Camera onto a moving object..

Post by Tessla » Sun Jun 28, 2020 3:46 am

We would like to be onboard a moving sailing ship, sailing on a Path, where we can be teleported off to a land location at anytime.. Is this possible or can it be possible???

By default the character in VR has collision, so have it inside CAR, on inside ship and move the ship, it will move with it, this should simply work.

Emm.. Perhaps we were tying too hard and got it way wrong...

What we should have done is add everything to a group and then added the Objects and then the Cameras so it seems that its the view from the Axemans eyes traveling on a path aboard a ship, around an island..

Here, our mockup screen shot.. The red block is the ship with the passenger, the Axeman with a VR Camera.. But at the moment, when we press play, the Axeman is left behind. What we need to do is add the Axeman to the ship, than add that to the path.. We think!!.. We make things hard for ourselves.. :lol: We tried to do this we V9 but it would not work very well, but this time with V10, we managed to work it out better.. With a clearer head... We think we are confusing ourselves.. The secret it to add the camera to the path and the ship... :?

Perhaps we are not doing it right. We created a ship (Red Block), put our Axeman aboard, as well as adding a VR Cameras. Then we attached these objects as the Ship Group(parent) to the path.. The animation time line path was created.. However, the Ship does not move.. What did we do wrong...??
