Exclamation Walking into the Ground - 11-21-2008, 09:19 AM

My friends and I have to use Alice for the BPA section of our class. We're in the computer animation group. We need to make a children's video, so we based it on a farm, and even made our own farmer. We want our farmer to walk to the animals, but he walks into the ground, until he's about waist deep in the grass. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Hi,

A while ago I ran into the same problem. I put this block into the method for the object moving (which was bikeKid2).

We set a dummy at ground level (when we set it just to the ground it seemed to want to go below ground)

You might have to change around the dist > -1 to get it just right.

Good luck.

(I'm sure there's a less complex way, but this is just what we came up with)
