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"

Restitution(bounciness) not working the way I'd expect?

I want to make a very bouncy ball. (One that tends to bounce to AT LEAST half the height it started at.) But I can't seem to achieve this...

If I set the restitution to 1 (the maximum amount they'll let me set it to,) the amount the ball bounces is pathetic. It hardly bounces at all... I tried drastically changing other settings, like the ball's mass, linear velocity, gravity and more, but even these big changes seem to make little to no difference on the bounce.

Also, if the restitution is high, and the ball is too light weight/the gravity is too strong, the ball will vibrate very rapidly on the ground, and it never stops. is it supposed to do that?

Does all this sound normal? It certainly doesn't work like other game engines I've tried.

How can I get the ball to bounce higher?
