Rolling soft body

Post by sjb » Fri Jan 18, 2008 3:36 pm

Hi I'm new to the forum so sorry if this is a silly question ....... I'm trying to do a rolling soft body effect (think loco roco http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfDr9eD7wKY). I've got my blob doing all sorts of cool jelly like effects but I can't seem to get it to roll! It just slides up and down slopes remaining upright ...... I've tried increasing the friction value on the ground plane but this doesnt seem to do the trick, it just makes it move slower ... is there something I've missed?
Cheers

You might try making the soft body a little more rigid and also different soft body solvers can yield different results. Star, cross, etc.

Try a lot of friction, 100, 1000 just to see what it does. Good luck!
