How do I make a crane like chain?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Apr 29, 2016 11:48 am

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums.

I've been using Construct 2 for an while as an education tool. I'm no hardcore program myself (I'm a Designer) but I do have a small programming background. Nothing fancy.

The thing is, I'm trying to make a helicopter game, and I want to make a crane to "fish" some crates and stuff but, I really don't know how to extend or retract the rope. I searched for resources or tutorial with no luck.

If anyone have a clue, :D

Thanks

Sorry for the late response, I was too busy this past months.
Actually it is not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a rope that acts like a rope. The idea is that one end will be atatched to a helicopter controlled by the player, and on the other, a hook or a claw to "fish" some crates on the ground.

Like everything there's a tonne of ways to skin a cat.

You could do something with physics objects to make your chain links (and hinge them together) so they have some form of automatic behaviour...

You can also check out the example made by Yann (3rd post in) IN THIS THREAD
