Rayfire bomb question
show user profile  Dazbme
Hey everyone, im new here and I have been having a problem with Rayfire; I try and set it up so a bomb fractures an object and sends the pieces everywhere. However, when I do so, the fractured pieces will simply fall down instead of fly forward, away from the bomb like I intended them to. I have the bomb liked up to my simulation under the physics tab as well as destroy geometry and destruction by bomb on. I have tried using both the Pbomb as well as RF_bomb and it seems to make no difference. After i have simulated the physics for a frame, it seems to keep replaying that simulation each time I try to redo it on that frame. I have to keep setting the explosion to different frames to make the changes I have made do anything. Even then changing the Strength multiplier does absolutely nothing. Does anyone know how to get this to work? All I want is to fracture an object and have the pieces fly forward, how would I go about doing such a thing?

Check your scene scale and mass of the objects.
Also check material solidity and tweak around a bit
What version of Rayfire are you using ?
