This is more of a logic question. I am trying to apply a camera shake animation when a vehicle collides with something. My idea was to detect if the Rate of Change of speed exceeds a certain threshold to determine if the vehicle has collided. Currently I am using a Value.Changed function (with the value being speed) to perform other things. How would I detect the rate of which the speed value is changing?
I haven’t tested this.
Edit: I realised it wouldn’t work so I changed it a little. I’m still not sure if it works.
local RunService = game:GetService("RunService")
local COLLISION_ACCELERATION = -- should be negative, because colliding reduces speed
local speedValObj = -- the value instance
local latestSpeed = speedValObj.Value
local function checkAccel(dt)
. local newSpeed = speedValObj.Value
local acceleration = (newSpeed-latestSpeed)/dt
latestSpeed = newSpeed
if acceleration < collisionAcceleration then
-- your code
