Scene tag

Look on the wheels. The arrows are telling you that the car
will move forward. You think this will happen? No! You are so
And a special: The car will leave beautiful coloured waves.

Actually not strange at all. The reason why the arrows on the axles are rotating in the wrong direction is because you attached the axle to the body of the car, and the wheel behind the body becomes the support for the axle. The correct way would be to have the wheel in front of the body, then attach the axle to the wheel (instead of to the body). In the current configuration, the wheel turns backward because of the counter-torque that the axle puts on the wheel while it is attached to the body of the car.

Interesting effect! :tup:
Good description xray!;)
Strange things are strange, if you don't understand it. Thank you Xray for destroying the effect to others!;)
I understood it by myself before. That's why I build it.
And thanks for the Smiley with the sunglasses.
Red Z - Algobox is all about explaining how things work. People here aren't satisfied with things being strange because they want to know WHY. Please don't take this personally. It's all about learning, sharing ideas, and having fun doing it! When people see something they don't understand, they ask for answers, and some things are more challenging than others to explain.

Your "strange car" was the first time that I've seen this effect, and so I wanted to understand why it was happening, and then I wanted to share what I had found with others.

I hope there are no hard feelings. :)

BTW - The smiley with the sunglasses is a THUMBS UP. In other words, I approve that your scene is interesting.

As I am new at Algodoo, I didn't really know this. Thank you for the information. I don't take it that personally because I feel glad that you guys even care about explanations and that you don't just take what you see.
This was my first discovered effect, due to the fact that I am new, like I said before. I only have uploaded three things and just this has to do with an effect. So I hope I'll learn a bit more by downloading your contents and, exspectually, understand them.
Apart from that: I understood that the sunglass smiley is a thumps up, but how is that smiley created?
How is it created? I have no idea. I suppose the person at Algoryx who developed this website would be able to tell you that. There is a link to the Algoryx website at the bottom of this page, and you may be able to contact them through their website if you wanted to ask them how the smileys were created.

I'll ask one of the other Admins who knows quite a bit about this website, and maybe he could tell you more about it. I'll see if he could reply to your question right here.

I'm not exactly too sure what you're asking, I'm too tired, but all the smiles are parsed I'm methods similar to the forum software, and use most of the same emoticon tags, they should also be listed below the comments box on any Algobox scene which has comments enabled.
Ps, Algobox wasn't coded by Algoryx, it was created by Link0007, an old Algodoo admin who's practically been around since the beginning, gotta love how much work he put into this site.
I am actually not sure if you understood what I meant with "how the thumps up smiley is created". I meant, for example, if you want to make a;) you click on ; and ). But which combo did you use to make thise smiley. Sorry, if missunderstanding. Can sometimes happen, English is not my mother tongue. A bit tricky if you want to say something and don't know a word and you are trying to describe it...
