I'm making a mod of a machine that is not lifted and lowered with a cilinder but with a winch and a steel wire rope. But I wonder if it's possible to make the efect of the rope being "rolled up" in the winch. Do you have any idea where I can start trying or seeing to start with it? Since I think there is nothing similar in the game and I can't figure it out where to start.

one possibility for a not perfect solution would be to

- scale the "cylinder/roll in the middle of the winch" (make it thicker or thinner, depending on the actual movement)
- move the end node (or start node) of the rope from left to right and back (and again and again)

To really put a rope dynamically around a cylinder, even if it's just visually - that might be hardly feasible.
At least if you don't have a profound knowledge of shaders.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for your answer!
I think your idea it's pretty good and simple. I like it.

The option using shaders would be to make it work like the textures of the crawlers or something like that?

hmmm, actually I have no specific idea for using shaders, i was just assuming that they could help in setting up a winch or they might be the only option :)

Good luck and cheers,
