Open a terminal, and run these two commands:

Code: Select all
cd Documents
ln -s ../Library/Application\ Support/Algodoo/ Algodoo


I'm fairly new to OSx, so abusing the fact that internally OSx and Linux have a good few similarities. That will create a symlink (pretty much an shortcut) that will allow you to get to the Algodoo folder from your Documents area.

Ok, I did that. Then I looked in Documents and there's still nothing there.

If you go into your folder called documents, there should now be a folder called Algodoo, make sure you actually select to view documents in the side pane of finder.

What do you mean by "side pane"?

I'm used to windows so I've got no idea what I'm doing...

Inside finder, you should see a the panel at the side which allows you to open your documents folder.

I'd suggest finding somebody to help you if you can't figure it out, as I can't really guide you too much on a OS I'm fairly new too myself, especially when I rarely use it.

I've got a friend that could help me, so I'll just ask him.

On a separate note, maybe a category for motorcycle-like things could be added, with different engine size/vehicle weight rules?

I also finished my entry and subsequently figured out how to upload it.

However, if your computer has difficulties when it is required to render 1000 circles per second, I highly suggest you don't download this...
