Constraints Actuator

Adds a constraint to the location, orientation

See Actuator Common Options for common options.

Special Options:

Constraint Mode
Menu specifying type of constraint required.
  • Force Field Constraint
  • Orientation Constraint
  • Distance Constraint
  • Location Constraint
Constraint actuator - Force Field
Force Field Constraint
Create a force field buffer zone along one axis of the object.
Damping
Damping factor of the Fh spring force (Range 0.0 - 1.0)
Distance
Height of Fh area
Rot Fh
Make game object axis parallel to the normal of trigger object.
Direction
Axis in which to create force field (can be + or -, or None)
Force
N
When on, use a horizontal spring force on slopes
M/P
Trigger on another Object will be either Material (M) or Property (P)
Property
Property/Material that triggers the Force Field constraint (blank for ALL Properties/Materials)
Per
Persistence button
When on, force field constraint always looks at Property/Material; when off, turns itself off if it can't find the Property/Material.
Time
Number of frames for which constraint remains active
RotDamp
Damping factor for rotation


Constraint Actuator - Orientation
Orientation Constraint
Constrain the specified axis in the Game to a specified direction in the World axis.
Direction
Game axis to be modified (X, Y, Z or none)
Damping
Delay (frames) of the constraint response (0 - 100)
Time
Time (frames) for the constraint to remain active (0 - 100)
ReferenceDir
Reference direction (global coordinates) for the specified game axis.
MinAngle
Minimum angle for the axis modification;
MaxAngle
Maximum angle for the axis modification;


Constraint actuator - Distance
Distance Constraint
Maintain the distance the Game Object has to be from a surface
Direction
Axis Direction (X, Y, Z, -X, -Y, -Z, or None)
L
If on, use local axis (otherwise use World axis)
N
If on, orient the Game Object axis with the mesh normal.
Range
Maximum length of ray used to check for Material/Property on another game object (0 - 2000 Blender Units)
Force Distance
•Distance to be maintained between object and the Material/Property that triggers the Distance Constraint(-2000 to +2000 Blender Units).
Damping
Delay (frames) of the constraint response (0 - 100)
M/P
Trigger on another Object will be either Material (M) or Property (P)
Property
Property/Material that triggers the Force Field constraint (blank for ALL Properties/Materials)
Per
Persistence button: When on, force field constraint always looks at Property/Material; when off, turns itself off if it can't find the Property/Material.
Time
Number of frames for which constraint remains active
RotDamp
Damping factor for rotation


Constraint actuator - Location
Location Constraint
Limit the position of the Game Object within one World Axis direction. To limit movement within an area or volume, use two or three constraints.
Limit
Axis in which to apply limits (LocX, LocY, LocZ or none)
Min
Minimum limit in specified axis (Blender Units)
Max
Maximum limit in specified axis (Blender Units)
Damping
Delay (frames) of the constraint response (0 - 100)
