Greetings! This week I've been hard at work on this physics based Rotating Turnstile
. Perfect for your subway stations, building lobbies, elevator banks or anywhere you need to count the entrance and egress of visitors while providing some restrictive protections.
The turnstile rotator subprops have hinge constraints on them and I successfully gave them weights and friction to keep the motions appropriate. All you have to do it turn the character collision shapes on and parade them through the turnstile to see the rotator spin. Alternately you can turn off the physics and turn the rotator subprop in increments of 120 degrees on the local rotation. Add a little transition curve preset on the back end to give it a bit of bounce and there you go.
The prop is modular so its easy to add or remove as many turnstiles as you need with iron fence subprops on the end. Enter/Exit signs are decal subprops that can be turned on or off. Also includes a basic station lobby with stairways at three openings.
