Experimenting with different car controllers in . Started with the Kenney sphere method which works okay. Tried the VehicleBody node and got it working, but couldn't get it to feel right. Tried the old and trusted RayCast car, and also tried doing a constraint model. A kinematic car works best in 2D but is difficult to get it interacting with objects in the way I'd like.

Have an idea combining a couple of these now I have a rough idea of what seems to work and what doesn't.

We're seeing a pretty huge influx of new users right now. In 'normal times' we get maaaaybe 10 new users a day. We've had 300 in the past four hours.

Anything at all is massively welcome - this is an entirely community-funded instance run by myself and a few mods in our spare time. <3

Much more interesting tracks. Now with jumps and spinny things.

Need to do a lot of work improving how the car feels & collisions, but it's getting there.

There's an uptick of sign-ups on mastodon.social larger than on the day Musk bought 9.2% of Twitter's shares (that's the other peak). I suspect similar graphs across the entire Mastodon network (at least I hope so!)

promise this will be the last time I post about this.

Put out a quick post-jam update which adds the shader to my weird little jet ski game, in addition to a few control changes. nappael.itch.io/untitled-jet-g

With that done, I'll be moving on to my next little project

Uploaded my entry last night. nappael.itch.io/untitled-jet-g

I like how the jet ski controller ended up feeling, but if I decide to turn it into something more I'd definitely need to tune how satisfying it is jumping off the ramps. Learnt a lot about in the process though.

Cleaned up my trusty M570 trackball. Seems to have fixed the scroll wheel in the process.
