-- This is in a while true do
if seat.Throttle == 0 then -- Ease to standstill
if math.abs(inputSpeed) > seat.Torque then
if inputSpeed > seat.Torque then
inputSpeed = inputSpeed - seat.Torque
inputSpeed = inputSpeed + seat.Torque
inputSpeed = 0
else -- Increase speed
inputSpeed = math.clamp(inputSpeed + seat.Torque * seat.Throttle, seat.MaxSpeed * -0.5, seat.MaxSpeed)
base.BodyVelocity.velocity = base.CFrame.lookVector*inputSpeed
That’s some simple code for speeding/ slowing something down.
I’m happy with setting speed, but when the throttle is idle, I want a more efficient/ less “if statement” way of easing to 0.
There’s always the option of just doing:
inputSpeed = inputSpeed * 0.98
That would ease the number closer to 0 every cycle. The problem is that it’s inconsistent from MANUALLY trying to slow down from top speed/ speed up from reverse.
What I want is there to be very little difference between manually slowing down and speeding up.
Like as follows:
I remember seeing drag from a post and I finally found it
Essentially from one of the replies I got Force = Throttle * Power - Drag * Speed
however I took it out of context because that makes a force ‘constant’ meaning it won’t go over a certain amount.
I was thinking for a while and thought that you could possibly get when the user stops input and grab the current speed of the vehicle with base.Velocity.Magnitude and see the difference between the current speed and 0 so lets say the difference is 25, that is how much you would increase the backwards force by (this is all just theoretical I have not actually tested it)
