I have a robot character. How do I animate it?
My character is a robot that balances itself on 2 wheels, sort of like a segway-robot. It leans forwards when going forwards and backwards when backwards. to turn one wheel turns faster than another. It has a shock-absorber for when it falls.
How is it convenient for me to make it playable? Do I make animations and play them when moving? Do I make a physics simulation and move them with code?(what about the shock absorber) Do I bother rigging it or do I move it with code and use parenting to make the pieces follow?
I don't know what exactly to ask. I need some orientation.
