If I knew how to program servos I could make swings.

You can turn continuous rotational motion into pendulum motion. At first I was thinking of a modified escapement system like a pendulum clock, but a crank-rocker is better. I know very little about mechanics, so this took me forever to find the terms for. :) 

I'd do it like this though:

Cool, that's gonna be 1 big ship. &)

Working on a car, took me forever to figure this out... :lol:

Can't put wheels on without summoning the Kraken, I'm going to try to unlock the autostruts on the wheels in the .cfg files, see if that helps. Edit: impossible...

Also on my todo list:

I solved the problem by placing the wheels on a strut, no more collisions, the robotics work smooth now. :cool:

As far as I understand it, they're now hard-coded into one of the wheel modules. There use to be a trick where you could Module Manager them out, but that stopped working a while ago.

Aha, I searched the file for  "strut" and "lock" but couldn't find anything.

I managed to fix it by adding cubic struts on the wheels and then place them, no idea why, but it works. ^_^

My next project was much easier, although I had to make 2 seperate hinges, because they wouldn't mirror.... -_-

I made 2 videos :

 

I'm going to work on a "strandbeest" now. :cool:
