Morning all,

Im still not sure If I can complete this or not (work allowing etc) but I might just give it a go anyway :)

Was reading though all this and just got really inspired to jump in too :) A few nights ago I took some test footage but It was too dark and we were just playing anyway :) Tomorrow is Sunday (here) and sunday mornings are great as there is little traffic etc....but the weather is miserable so Ill see what I can get anyway.

Well I thought Id have a play and see if I could get something going here first. Results arnt too bad...animation looks neat.

Catch you guys later.

Lots of fragments here! Are you using some sort of explotion-force/modifier. This can be sweet. I wonder if it might be best if you did not pulverise the whole road, but stop as it is in the center frame in your picture. Just a thought.

Good luck!:thumbsup:

very cool! yeah i dont think the whole road would crumble like that though. I think the road would break apart then push together causing the edges of the crack to crumble and buckle making one side of the road go higher
