    Hey there.

    In my Caterham (& modding) journey to Assetto, i keep going back to useful posts, sometimes savings links as shortcut to be sure to keep that valuable info on how to something in particular.
    Today i decided it would be nice to do a sticky note where we would edit this post in useful stuff.
    A lot was said in the "dumb question thread", but there's so many pages to look into!
    I invite anyone to post useful links below and i'll update them here, trying to sort them by categories.
    so here i start :)

    • Animation
    Anim / Skin flexible (using 3Dsmax) :

    Basically i applied the skin modifier to the brake cable, and i applied both screws as bones. No need of more null/dummy this way
    prior to this, you need to make sure you put gizmo of the cable properly, and centered in 0,0,0
    i edited the enveloppe very wide as you can see in the screenshots.
    To try quicker what's best for enveloppe parameters, i animated some key frames of the steering, then as i was playing with the enveloppe shape, i was playing the timeline to see the result, faster than selecting the bones etc.

    aaand last but not least, but this you know the pain ;p is the ksEditor, messing around with skin
    i personally had to go texture the object in the .ini of the fbx and reloading kseditor with it, otherwise i couldn't do anything to it... fun!
