*** Outline ***

This section shows how to convert Cromwell's RoadWheels into KV-I's RoadWheels.

(Note.)
In this project, "RoadWheel" means a grounded wheel with any suspension.




*** How to to change the RoadWheels ***

(1) Select the "Create_RoadWheel".

Select the "Create_RoadWheel" in the tank in the Hierarchy window, and find the "Create_RoadWheel_CS (Script)" in the Inspector window.
We can change the settings of the RoadWheels from this script.


(2) Change the appearance.

At first, change the appearance of the suspension arms and the wheels.
Set the meshes and materials for the new tank into the boxes.
In this tutorial, set as follows.



(3) Change the Distance values.

The script has two "Distance" values, for arms and for wheels.
Set the distance between the left arm (wheel) and the right arm (wheel) into each "Distance".
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(4) Change the number of the wheels.

Set the number of the wheels on one sied into the "Number".
In this tutorial,set as follows. (KV-I has six RoadWheels on one side)



(5) Change the spacing of the wheels.

Set the spacing between the wheels into the "Spacing".
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(6) Change the length of the suspension arm.

Set the length of the suspension arm into the "Length".
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(7) Change the radius of the wheels.

In this project, the wheel has a Sphere Collider in it as its collider.
Therefore we need to set the radius of the Sphere Collider according to the appearance of the wheel.
Set the proper radius value into the "SphereCollider Radius".
In this tutorial,set as follows.


(Note.)
The "SphereCollider Radius" at the 'Suspension settings' is used for adjusting the stability of the suspension arms.
Usually we need not change this value.



(8) Adjust the position of the "Create_RoadWheel".

The pivot of the "Create_RoadWheel" object is the same as the pivot of the first suspension arm.
Move the "Create_RoadWheel" to the mounting position of the first suspension arm.
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(9) Adjust the spring settings.

The settings of the suspension springs are important for driving of the tank, but our tracks has not been remodeled yet.
Therefore set the spring values temporarily now, and adjust them after the completion of the new tracks.

The spring angle values are displayed by three colors.


In this tutorial,set as follows temporarily.



Progress to the next section.

We have got the new RoadWheels.


Try to change the other wheels in the following sections.
