Hello world,

The Dare To Be Different (D2BD) is a series I started for people to show off their more useless, but still cool creations. It doesn't have to be anything special, just something that does... Something.

This is my first D2BD. I'm not sure what to use it for - maybe the inside of a wheel, or a sponge-like thing... You make the call! Just drag it around and check it out!

Feel free to modify it and re-upload it (provided you give me credit)!

Thanks, hopefully this will be the start of a big series by all Algobox users!


The forum post can be found here. Post your D2BDs there!

Rate! Comment! Enjoy! Wait, that's been said already... :P

You realize this was discovered a long time ago? :lol:
Really? When? Example? Link?

You mean the group or the scene?

"soft" objects have been around for quite some time. Search for "softbody" or "soft body", and you will get numerous scenes displaying many kinds, probably hundreds if you include Phunbox 1. A lot of them use springs from before beta five and may not function right, but they've been made with springs, hinge stretching, and even water. For a long time, they were sort of a fad. As soft bodies go, this one is rubbish. And by no means is this one bouncy, as is claimed in the title. Look around at how some of the others are made for inspiration on improvements you could make.

Wait, I checked who the author is. Physicsguy? Haven't you been around long enough to know what a soft body is?

Thanks for proving me right Frank:)
Yes, I know softbodies have been around forever, and I've been around for about a year or two.

However, I have made a softbody before, and it's not bad. It just uses springs. I haven't made a softbody without springs yet. I know others have, but not me, and this is mine. :)
