Talking FXWars! Catapult! (Trebuchet) : echo.no

Hey! First of all I would like to thank RobertoOrtiz for a great challenge, I've been lurking in these forums for quite some time now and this is the first challenge that actually made me install Maya's learning software and give it a go This is my first model ever, so please feel free to critique it to death, I won't take it personal

I spent last night and an hour or two this morning to get where I am now. I figured I should be learning dynamics by now, so - are there any good tutorials out there that I can use? I have no idea on how to make this thing work in a simulation.. I also need to learn how to create the ropes and "non-wooden" objects.. any suggestions?

My trebuchet so far - Reference

Oh, and derbyqsalano, your model is awesome and the sim looks impressive already!


(Update: Playblasts!

I finally managed to get the dynamics to work relatively well! The model itself isn't really finished, I still want to add some detail to the model itself, and I want to make dynamic ropes. Time will show if I manage to do that

View from target - 0.14mb
View from trebuchet - 0.22mb
Trebuchet only - 0.18mb

They're all encoded with the Xvid-codek (get codek here).

Feedback always appreciated! Thanks!

Update: Target!

I kinda got stuck on the ropes so I decided to move on to the target to avoid loosing my motivation. Here's what I've got so far, the plan is to model a wooden door that gets blown away by the projectile.
