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"

Getting Force of Hit in VR?

So I have an axe and a piece of wood and I'm trying to destroy the wood only when the axe hits the wood with enough force. Is this possible in VR because the velocity is so rapidly changing all the time? I'm able to destroy the wood and it creates the pieces but I just need it to do so when enough force is hitting it.

When your axe is hitting the wood, get the size of the impact vector. Then do a check to see if this vector is larger than a threshold. If true -> destroy wood.
