Check out the Image

The player will control the speed and rotation of the wagon (check out the above link to the image) 

I want the crate to stay on the moving platform while also falling of when a steep angle is made.

Making it a child doesn’t help. Any suggestions???

Thanks 🙂

Make a physic material and crank it’s friction up.

Tries that too, but it doesn’t seem to work

What do you mean doesn’t work?

What does it do?

It doesn’t do anything, The crate falls off when the wagon is moving

Hey, sorry for the late response.

Are you moving the wagon with rigidbody AddForce? or just dragging it in the editor?


Because dragging it in the editor it will look like it’s sliding, but I just stacked some 2d boxes and moved the bottom one with Addforce, and the rest held on up top just fine


Edit: you can even directly set it’s velocity instead of using AddForce if you want the cart to be kinematic. But you HAVE to use the rigidbody to move. Setting the position or using Translate won’t work.
