Specify how to update the character
This attribute allows a choice of three ground evaluation modes :
|Include Physics World||If checked, ground adaptation will also use physicalized Entities of the specified Physics Locator to compute footprint height|
|Physics Locator||see above|
|Physics Projection Mode||
|Filter Physics Mode||Ground adaptation will be done only on physics parts that are of the given physics mode (see the Physicalize Mode parameter of the Physicalize Behavior for more information on physics modes).|
This allows to filter the physics parts on which doing ground adaptation.
|Filter Operator||Comparison operator (equal, greater than…)|
|Filter ID Value||ID for the filter (to see how to set an ID, check the EntityType , the Crowd Rigid Body and the Physicalize Behavior).|
|Filter Color Value||Color for the filter (to see how to set a color, check the EntityType, the Bone Physics Properties part of the character maker, and the Crowd Rigid Body).|
|Max Step Limb Ratio||
The maximum proportion of leg length that the character can stretch between two footprints. This ratio depends on your character's morphology.
In the example above, the character has a max Step Limb ratio of 0.3 (orange line). The Ground Adapt Behavior won't stretch his legs more than that amount.
|Ground Detection Ratio||
The Ground Detection Ratio sets the height from which the ray cast is done. The ray cast is used to determine the ground height at a foot step. It depends on the environment and the character morphology. This ratio influence how the next foot print position is found. On a high slopped terrain, increase the ratio so the character won't detect ground inside the terrain.
A value of 1 sets the start of the ray at the same height of the pelvis. A value of 2 sets the ray start higher.
|Orient Pelvis On Ground Normal||Allow to orientthe whole posture on the ground's normal BEFORE adaptation the legs on the ground. For creatures that keep their pelvis/bust aligned with the ground (like spiders), this can produce better results.|
|Max Pelvis Ori Speed||Maximum orientation speed for the pelvis on ground normal alignment. In degree/s.|
|Sampling Radius||Radius around footprint that will be used to make ray samples.|
|Sampling Ray Count||Number of ground ray evaluations to average.|
