Default How can I create an "Earthquake" effect on a world? - 12-01-2011, 10:05 PM

I'm trying to make an animation, but one of the things I want is to have an Earthquake occur. Problem is, i'm not entirely certain of how I can do that.\

Any advice would be welcome.

maybe tell the ground to move left x meters then right x meters. Or were you wanting the ground to split?

Just need to shake the ground, nothing else. Note that I do want every object on the ground to shake with said ground.

If you wanted to do it so that it's compatible with objects flying in the air, you'd have to make every object's vehicle the ground, and then move the ground up and down a few decimals at a speed of 0 seconds.
That, however is a pain in the ass. I suggest you simply shake the camera instead if all of your objects are landlocked.

If I was trying to do this, I would use methods to create a shaking effect with the camera. This would be the best way to do achieve this effect in my opinion because instead of programming everything to move with it, you only have to have the camera moving, which will make everything appear like it is moving.
