Spikes / NodeGrabber / Spikestrip 4

Spikestrip as a Prop

  1. Neo
    Release 28.02.2016:
    Greetings,
    my intention is, that I want to have a spike strip, which can be thrown out by police cars. This is my first spike strip attempt. I´m not a pro in Blender nor in jBeam programming, so it could take a lot of time before the next update comes. Yet I spend the most of the time on a design that breaks the wheels every time. The next step is to figure out how to attach the spikes to the vanilla police cars and the last step is how to detach the spikes from the car in movement.
    Tell me what you think and if you want to help me contact me on the forum.
    I´m looking forward to reading your feedback.

    Edit 04.03.16:
    During my testing, I have created a stationary spike strip. It is unrealistic but it makes fun^^
    The download is in the forum thread

    Edit 10.03.16:
    New Body and Physics properties

    Edit 07.05.16:
    Improved Physics, little Texture (if someone could make a better one, that would be really nice; the UV-Map can be adapted)

    Edit 30.05.16:
    A lot better video of the current version from WhyBeAre


    Edit 15.07.2016:
    Some good Videos from Neilogical


    Edit 16.07.2016:
    From now on are the Spikes a lot resistant against external force. So now can the Spikes grab better, so the theory. ;)

    Love this mod. Also just curious, did you base the "attaching to cop cars" from NFS hot pursuit? Cause thats the only place i have ever seen that.

      Author's Response
      Maybe. I personally only wanted a system which fits into the gameplay. I only played NFS Hot Pursuit 3 from 1998, so I maybe got some inspiration from this game, but it was never my intention to clone a existing system.

    Nice. I think I know how to make it detachable, make it a trailer. You'll drag it behind the car and then you can skid to the side and release it!

    when I run over the spike strip nothing happened I'm kind of upset I'm not able to mess around with this mod

      Author's Response
      Yeah, the new Update fixed the Glitch I used to simulate something similar to a Spikestrip and that´s why it is set on outdated.

    the driveshaft breaking hasn't occurred in 40 minutes of rigorous testing at high speed, the mod is nearly perfect at this version
