    I am currently working on a small 3D top-down game where the main mechanic is based on a rope system. This is not a simple swinging rope, the player have a water hose in hand so he has a maximum distance he can reach and the hose can be stuck in objects. Eventually, the hose may stuck in other players hoses if i make this game in coop.



    Now that you know the main idea of the game and the way i want the hoses to work, my question is, how would you build that "rope" system?

    The only solution i have tried so far is a bunch of capsules rigidbodies with joint. I tried character joints and configurable joints. Its not bad but it have its limits. When i apply too mush force or when it is stuck in an object, the capsules starts jittering.



    What would be the best way to make that water hose?
