How do I make a zipline?
Fri, 07/09/2021 - 22:12

Hello! I want to make a zipline that people can use to get around. I made the zipline block and a item called a zipline hook so the idea is when you right click the zipline with your hook then you will be able to move around on it (like w to go forward on it or s to go back). Any help appreciated.

Hmm will this work on diagonals or just the x y and z axises(?)

 

If it doesn't feature diagonals, I could whip something up when I am at my computer

 

Otherwise it'll be WAY more complex

 

And what physics will it have? Like when going from higher to lower, does it give you more forward (downward) momentum or an initial boost?

No diagonals would be fine but momentum would be cool

Damn this is way harder than it needs to be lmao

 

Ill have everything ready by tomorrow

Its turning more complex for a simple line with 2 endpoints and thats just placing the Rope between them using slope. Can't wait to see how difficult it'll be to get a player zipping across it

Ok the math has officially fried my brain

This is way more complex than I'd though it would be and a lot more math to remember

 

Id say wing it and keep in mind that the zipline is a line that goes from point A to point B so you can utilize y=mx+b to make your line (if you want to use all 3 coordinates, do another but with the same Y and B values but replace your x with the other axis)

 

I may post a full exported procedure some time later on but rn I need to get my mind out of the mathematical rabbit hole
