I sure could use any tips on using sticky. I have a simple Tank object (sticky) traveling over a simple landscape mesh (sticky surface) and when I use sticky it flips the tank backwards and follows my keyframes and mesh surface just fine..but backwards and after the keyframes are finished it filps the tank towards the front again. It seems to happen when I turn on align to mesh and velocity which of course is pretty important. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong....any ideas. Is it the pivot maybe??

You may have built your object backwards, vehicles should be facing in +Z direction.

That hekped but the tank object still wants to move at the end of it's path to re-align itself or something I guess, what's up with that? Adding another keyframe doesn't seem to help...Any thoughts

Also if you have any parenting set up in the sticky chain that seems to send it haywire.

Yeah, I saw that in another post. So nothing is parented. It's very weird that it won't just rest in place where it stops.
