*** Outline ***

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

(Note.)
In this project, the IdlerWheel is attached to a small arm used for adjusting the tension of the tracks.

You can omit this tensioner arm from the IdlerWheel if you need not it.



*** How to to change the IdlerWheels ***

(1) Select the "Create_IdlerWheel".

Select the "Create_IdlerWheel" in the tank in the Hierarchy window, and find the "Create_IdlerWheel_CS (Script)" in the Inspector window.
We can change the settings of the IdlerWheels from this script.


(2) Change the appearance.

At first, change the appearance of the wheels and the arms.
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 length of the tensioner arm.

Set the length of the tensioner arm into the "Length".
We can skip this step if the tank has no tensioner arm.
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(5) 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.



(6) Adjust the position of the "Create_IdlerWheel".

The pivot of the "Create_IdlerWheel" object is the same as the pivot of the tensioner arm.
Move the "Create_IdlerWheel" to the mounting position of the tensioner arm.
When the tank does not have any tensioner arm, the pivot of the "Create_IdlerWheel" is the same as the pivot of the wheel.
In this tutorial,set as follows.



(7) Adjust the angle of the tensioner arms.

The tensioner arms are used for adjusting the tension of the tracks, but our tracks has not been remodeled yet.
Therefore set the angle value temporarily now, and adjust it after the completion of the new tracks.
We can skip this step if the tank has no tensioner arm.
In this tutorial,set as follows.



Progress to the next section.

We have got the new IdlertWheels.


Try to change the other wheels in the following sections.
