« on: June 07, 2012, 12:54:00 pm »

Is there any plans to support trains and boats into the engine?

Yes. Boats are here just not able to move and trains should be do-able with just a "tweak" to the Road Editor.

That will be handy to provide extra modes of transportation.

Will the engine physics be able to support players walking around inside a train while the train is in motion? Would this also apply to all large vehicles, buses trucks etc.

I'm reading this forum too :)

It can be done in more than one way. Physically correct way would require a correct friction between many elements and would be probably hell to get right. But it can be also done as an inertial system when inside, with some force impulses propagating from outside ...

I hope for an update to use boats (and subs too) after we have the model importer. ;)

Had to make that, sorry, but I thought it would fit.

I am personally waiting for trains first, especially if we also get realtime tools to modify the terrain - metros, anyone?
