Basically, I am trying to make a ship go from one point to another, without sliding. Below is an example of what I mean.
Now, obviously this is math, but I would like some help figuring the math out, as I am not very good at it.
Would prefer implementation via CFrames. I am not asking for you to make the whole thing, just explain how I should go about it.
This seems to work fine, if the ship is already generally facing the position it will move toward, however when it has it’s back toward it, it rotates at crazy fast speeds, which still looks unrealistic.
Something you could try is using the Archimedes plugin to create 1/4 circles which will be the path of the ship. You could set the CFrame to each part of the 1/4 circle and set the orientation of the ship of the each of those parts.
Well you have some function which gives you a point on the curve, say f(x). Thus if you can use the CFrame constructor CFrame.new(origin, lookAt) in the form CFrame.new(f(x), f(x+0.001)) to get a CFrame that rotates with the curve
These are both great solutions, and I will definitely use a mix, however, @wevetments’ idea is perfect to make sure the ship turns in a realistic way, which was the biggest issue, so I will mark that as the solution.
