First off - let me say how awesome I have found Farseer. None of the other engines I have tried to work with have been so easy to work with and get results. Thanks : )
Im still in the learning stage though and as such I have a question i hope you guys can answer. What im trying to do (for now) is simply to get a wheel to rotate when a button is held, such that it will move a long the ground and roll up and down hills.
I have created the wheel the same way as done in the advanced samples #6 - but when I apply the AngularImpulse the wheel seems to fly off the surface and rotate strangely in my air whilst moving forward.
Here are the stats for my wheel:
Radius = 20;
Mass = 20;
FrictionCoefficient = 1.0f;
AngularImpulse applied = 250f;
What im trying to do in the end is have a car that can accelerate fast, but not achieve a very large top speed? Any ideas? : /
