Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Flexible chain for a wrecking ball


I'm making a game with a wrecking ball (a demolition simulator). For now I'm using a PhysicsConstraintComponent to drag/attach the ball. But I want the "chain" to be flexible/bendable so when the ball touch the floor it doesn't glitch. I'd like to do something exactly like that : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmN4ONIc2zw.


EDIT : I don't need a complex bending, so I tried using two PhysicsConstraintComponent lnked together, it worked well, but the second constraint is twoo much elastic : it streches. I don't understand why, I didn't set any damping.

PS : The wrecking ball is really heavy, but I need it to be heavy.
