How can I limit how fast a wheel (on a hinge) can spin?

I have made a carriage connected to two horses by one rope each. The horses are controlled from a seat inside the carriage, that’s right, the carriage is powered physically by the horses and not by itself.

It all works well, but sometimes the carriage exceeds the speed of the horses and starts overtaking them, especially when I stop the horses.

How can I limit the rotation speed of the wheels in order to avoid the carriage from moving faster than the horses? I have already tried increasing the mass of the carriage, but it didn’t help at all.

I’d be thankful for any kind of help regarding this.


Bump, still wanna know. It seems so easy, but I just can’t find out how to do it.

I think it is off topic. It should be in scripting support not in building support.

I don’t think so, I am asking for help with physics, not a specific script.

Try setting the hinge type to motor. Motor hinges have resistance, but you might need to lower the torque to make it actually roll. Or you could increase friction between the carriage and the wheels using the friction property
