i want the orange to splatter on impact with the ground i was figuring that i could do it the same way i blew up the space ship ?
you got any other ideas?
Well, I guess you could do it that way, but instead of making each piece a rigid body, you could make them goals for a softbody-copy? maybe? might take too long....
I don't have much softbody experience, but in theory, it should do what you want
I just threw my girlfriends luch (orange) off our balcony hehe.., and when it landed, it didn't really rip apart like I thought it would...
It just split down one side, and the "guts" were the parts that were ejected out everywhere...
For those, you could use blobby particles with a few "hero" splatters emitted out from the mid-center of the orange object maybe?
Good luck, sorry I'm not much help...
