Animated Wrecking Ball


This animated asset includes an old warehouse and a crane. Its a machine developed by the german manufacturer Sennebogen, the 3D model itself is a simplified version of the HD 655 E.

The animation starts with the first hit, then the crane slowly drives backwards, adjusts a new position for the wrecking ball and swings for the second hit on the warehouse.

All parts of the animation sequence are based on real life physics behaviour I made via a simulation in Blender software. The chain tracks move along together with the crane and the mechanical pistons are also animated.

The mod "Custom Animation Loader" is a must to play the animation. To turn it off, just deactivate the building.
