Slowly increase joint limit over time

Hi there,

I’m working once again on a funfair game, but I’m not so much a scripter as I am a model builder.

I have created a super simple script which sets the joint limit to -90 and 0.
But I want it to increase/decrease over a X amount of time, but i’m not sure on how to achieve said effect.

Is there anyone that can create a example for me that would work in my case?

That would be highly appereciated!

The is :

``````using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class limit : MonoBehaviour
{
// Start is called before the first frame update
void Start()
{
HingeJoint hinge = GetComponent<HingeJoint>();
}

// Update is called once per frame
void Update()
{

if (Input.GetKeyDown("e"))
{
HingeJoint hinge = GetComponent<HingeJoint>();
JointLimits limits = hinge.limits;
limits.min = 0;
limits.bounciness = 0;
limits.bounceMinVelocity = 0;
limits.max = -90;
hinge.limits = limits;
hinge.useLimits = true;
}
if (Input.GetKeyDown("d"))
{
HingeJoint hinge = GetComponent<HingeJoint>();
JointLimits limits = hinge.limits;
limits.min = 0;
limits.bounciness = 0;
limits.bounceMinVelocity = 0;
limits.max = 0;
hinge.limits = limits;
hinge.useLimits = true;

}
}
}
``````

You need to use Time.time method. It is basically a method used to see time since the play mode activated. You may create a variable and increase joint limit when Time.time - [your variable] reaches to a certain amount and set your variable to Time.time again.

For an example when your variable is zero and time past is 3 your hinge limit increases a certain amount and your vairable sets to three again.

I can send a code if you want further help.
