This is an example map showing a truck with moving and rotating wheels. And best of all: No additional coding and/or Spirit of HL has been used! The number defines the rotation speed on that particular axis.

Only one disadvantage:
  • You cannot use corners for the truck. This will seriously screw up the truck's movement.
Aw well, see it for yourself.

I saw this done in 'Point of View' and although I'm used to HL2 now I thought of it as looking lame lol.

Now this is one handy prefab!

Very frickin' cool. Though I must admit, I still do not understand how the rotation is achieved....

Oh, BTW, your compo 12 entry/winner was really awsome. Very realistic looking and very true to the reference photos. You should include it under your profile so people can send you comments. Great Job!

Heh, thanks. I might. I got an improved version of that map. With some more trees and more.

The rotating wheel affect is achieved by making the wheel rotate around their own axis, next to their normal func_train movement. I only add -180 0 0 to the xyz values of the func_trains. Take a look. :)

That is a very interesting concept, that I must explore further... Thanks for the example!
