Making boat interact with waves


I was wondering how I would get my boat to interact with waves. At the moment it is just staying flat. I want it to bob up and down with each wave.

This is what it looks like at the moment

Thanks in advance for any help.

I may be wrong, but I think you need script for this.

Is the boat anchored? I feel like an unanchored boat will be interactive with the waves already. I might be wrong tho.

Yes, Anchoring the boat should work. If you do use multiple parts then weld them together.

No, the boat is already unanchored.

Thats what I’m asking. I don’t know how to script this.

This doesn’t belong in building support

Oh sorry my bad should have posted this in the scripting support moved it now.

Make the boat unanchored and make a system that makes parts collide with water.

My boat collides with water and it is un-anchored but that just makes it act like there are no waves as you can see in the video.

In my idea is just using raycasting to detect how far the magnitude is between the water and the boat to detect how much rotation you can think off maybe im just too basic to think of this one but yeah i dont know maybe itll help.
