realwave forcing rigit bodys?

Post by vectorhead » Tue Jun 16, 2009 8:49 am

Is there anyway to have rigid bodys flow with realwave ripples. You would think it would get pushed by the waves? Instead its static?


sorry for the spelling mistake;)

Realwaves are just a heightfield that emulates the appearance of waves on the surface without simulating anything underneath. To get the "push" effect from a wave or ripple it would have to be simulated with particles or cheated with Python somehow. Cheers!

Although the waves don't push actively the objects floating in realwaves, the visual impression of an object in a ocean can make the observer think that it is actually the case sometimes.
In this example it is just one object randomly floating in a realwave: ...
