How to calculate the time before the player hits the ground

Hey all, I want to try to get the time until the player hits the ground (from jumping/falling etc)

How would I do this?

Thanks any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

I think OP wants to predict how much time it would take to fall from, let’s say, 14.2m rather than how long the jump has taken after the fact.

@Faze_Kaas - could you clarify?


  • a timer can be used to measure time between Jumped & Landed:


When it comes to prediction, there’s a lot of free fall equations online - what to use and translate into blueprints depends on the circumstances which are not that clear at the moment. Do we care about air friction? Are we jumping vertically only?

I’m terrible with math (hilarious for a professional programmer, right?) but you can grab the Gravity from UWorld, I believe, and if you do a trace below when you start falling to get the distance, then you can math it out. You may have to account for maximal velocity.

Yeah predicting, I will took into some free fall equations thanks

Thanks will look into that
