Linking Objects

Hi All,

A while ago, I had a problem with headlights, whereby when I attached them to a car, I had a jagged light effect as the vehicle approached - because it was highlighting each road texture quad in turn.

I have decided that the way to get over this would be to simply link a small quad that is fixed to the vehicle (offset by say 20 cm) in front, that the lights could illuminate as it moved towards the viewer.

However, I am having difficulties getting the quad to link, as the euler command is not rotating it (see code) below.

If anyone knows a way that I can program it to get the road quad to lay flat, that would be great.



road = viz.addTexture('Roadstrip3.png')
roadstrip = viz.addTexQuad(viz.WORLD,viz.MainScene,1)

# vehicle 1 a Car ### TOYOTA 
car1 = viz.addTexture('car2.gif')
vehicle0 = viz.addTexQuad(viz.WORLD,viz.MainScene,1)
vehicles[0] = vehicle0, roadstrip, priority=1, offset = (0, -1.2, -0.1))

When it comes to linking objects in vizard, you have to use the commands link.preEuler([yaw,pitch,roll]) and link.preTrans([x,y,z]) functions after creating the link instead of vehicle0.setEuler and vehicle0.setPosition before creating the link. So try this:
link =, roadstrip, priority=1, offset = (0, -1.2, -0.1))
