how and to add forces

Postby Dr_kola » Sat Dec 12, 2015 11:45 pm

I want to do a simulation of a ball throw with air friction base on a program i written so I need that air friction will affect it but the air friction in algodoo isn't right so i want to now if i can add my own forces to act on the ball F=something that will effect the movement of the ball.
thanks for any help .
and sorry for my bad English.

What's wrong with algodoo air friction?
As alternatives you could use velocityDamping (in script window) and thrusters with scripted force.
Dream of Algodoo as game development engine...

Hello, Dr_kola
maybe the air friction is too little for your purpose?
You can right-click on the green ball right of the red apple, thats the place for modifying the air-friction.
e.g. you can set it to 50 ;)
There is also a linear term and a quadratic term which you can set or modify wit the sliders.
If any other questions to it, post here.
