Physics Engine (deprecated)

This is the old, deprecated physics engine. Prefer to use the Physics Engine 2.0. Read more explanations about it.

Physics Engine

Make objects move as if they are subject to the laws of physics. If you're creating a new game, prefer Physics Engine 2.0

Behavior actions

Add a gear between two objects
Add a virtual gear between two objects.

Add a hinge
Add a hinge that the object will rotate around.
The distance between the hinge and the object will remain identical.

Add a hinge between two objects
Add a hinge that the object will rotate around.

Add a force
Add a force to the object

Apply a force toward a position
Apply a force, directed toward a position, to the object.

Apply a force ( angle )
Apply a force to an object, using an angle and a length as coordinates.

Apply an impulse
Apply an impulse to the object.

Apply an impulse toward a position
Apply an impulse, directed toward a position, to the object.

Apply an impulse (angle)
Apply an impulse to an object, using an angle and a length as coordinates.

Add a torque (a rotation)
Add a torque (a rotation) to the object.

Do not treat object like a bullet
Do not treat the object like a bullet, so it will use standard collision handling.

Angular damping
Modify the angular damping of the object.

Angular speed
Modify the angular velocity of the object.

Treat object like a bullet.
Treat the object like a bullet, so it will have better collision handling.

Make the object dynamic
Make the object dynamic ( affected by forces and other objects ).

Fix rotation
Prevent the object from rotating

Make object's rotation free
Allows the object to rotate.

Gravity
Modify the gravity

Linear damping
Modify the linear damping of the object.

Linear velocity
Modify the velocity of an object.

Change the X scale of a collision polygon
Change the X scale of the polygon. Use a value greater than 1 to enlarge the polygon, less than 1 to reduce it.

Change the Y scale of a collision polygon
Change the Y scale of the polygon. Use a value greater than 1 to enlarge the polygon, less than 1 to reduce it.

Make the object static
Make the object immovable.

Behavior conditions

Angular damping
Test the object's angular damping

Angular speed
Compare the angular speed of the object.

Collision
Test if two objects are colliding.
Attention! Only objects specified in the first parameter will be taken into account by the next actions and conditions, if they are colliding with the other objects.

Collision polygon X scale
Test the value of the X scale of the collision polygon.

Collision polygon Y scale
Test the value of the Y scale of the collision polygon.

Object is treated like a bullet
Test if the object is treated like a bullet

The object is dynamic
Test if an object is dynamic ( affected by forces and other objects ).

Fixed rotation
Test if the object's rotation is fixed.

Linear damping
Compare the linear damping of the object.

Linear speed
Compare the linear velocity of the object.

X component
Compare the linear velocity on the X axis of the object.

Y component
Compare the linear velocity on the Y axis of the object.
