Another centrifugal catapult, this one uses a watermill-ish system to spin the arm

It usually fires a shot 300-400 meters

If it explodes, move the casing back and weaken the springs inside

Instructions are inside

Let me know of any problems and what you think of it!

Wait, am I the only one that has uploaded a centrifugal catapult to algobox?

Wicked concept! I made the body semi-opaque too see what happens inside, and watching what happens inside is even cooler. Very unique firing mechanism. Keep up the good work.
Thanks! The mechanism is quite simple, if you think about, but it took me a long time to get it working,
This is really fun! But, I'm kind of sad that my algodoo demo has only a few hours left to work. I know that you mentioned it took a REALLY long time to get it working, but (by any chance) can you make a version that runs with phun? :)
I would have to download phun again, but I think the problem your having with is the spring strength.

There's a bar that pushes the balls the down, and it is attached to two springs(there behind the balls), Move the casing back, click them and move the strength down (or up, but i'm quite sure it's down). That should make it work.

I'll also try to make a version that is optimized for phun as well
