Scripted T72 Visual Model
I set up this real-time visual model with extensive articulations and a script for realistic track and wheel animation. The Python script queries the Mantis IG to determine velocity, and animates the wheels at the appropriate speed. Terrain roughness is also simulated with a scalable wheel bounce and rocking of the hull. A separate script handles barrel recoil for weapons fire.
