Squishy Ground Physics
Alright, I don't know if anybody has done something like this but too bad if you did. Mine pwns all (JK). This is example shows how to make "squishy" ground and how to bounce a ball on it and have it react. I'm sorry but I didn't make this very changable, but if you understand the code (which could be fairly easy) then you could see whats going on. I'm too lazy to comment it but I hope you learn something from it. If you download, please leave a comment on what I can do better or what I can add.

Comments Highly Apreciated

Heh, I liked that a lot ^_^ I can't imagine what use I could have for this but it was a lot of fun.

Wow, this was interesting. There are some things that don't work absolutely perfect, and it's done in D&D, but cool nonetheless. 8/10, which is quite high for something done in D&D. Had to recode the "random 1/60 chance" thing to a click to create a ball.

i played it. the only problem is that when the line is bent upwards and the ball hits it, its not "squishy" it just stops then slowly moves down. I'm feeling nice xD 9/10

the main glitch that i know of is when a point gets stuck in a ball and it keeps going up for a while and looks funny.

@Herooftime55: what are you talking about D&D? I only put a couple simple things in D&D cause i didn't feel like writeing them. If you look at the codes the bulk of the example is there.

@Patrick7286: the reason i called it squishy is because I didn't know what else to call it, and I still don't

It's interesting, but it doesn't seem to act like anything other than a large, physically inaccurate spring.

@Gamer3D: who cares, it's fun to mess with.

Definately not squishy.

You did some fairly noobish D&D coding primarily such as the 1/60 chance of creating a ball. It dosent kill the example, but it shows you are either a) not very experienced in GML, or b) very lazy. It was actually easier to just put the code in the global left pressed event, without the random thing, which gives the user control over the balls creation. The first time I ran it, no ball appeared, so I had to look over the code to find the problem.

Please put more effort into cleaning up examples. This is, after all, 64Digits, not some other little site. If you have the skills to clean something up, please don't leave it messy. After all, you have to wait a week for your work to get accepted, so you may as well make it look as best you can.

It's been a long time since I've even touched D&D, I do everything in scripts and code. So I might be a little harsh on that. Don't take it personally.

@HeroofTime55: Ty, I'll take your advice and lets hope people like my examples more in the future.

Nice one. This could be used for a Loco Roco clone.

Wow, that is pretty cool, yet there aren't many uses for this, 8/10

that sucked, it was very poor physics.

I see that you are trying to "emulate" a ball hitting a string in the real world. I will consider this as a good start. Now, try to have the string moves without having zig-zag lines. It's possible. Use a sprite and twist it around. I can be a bit tricky to code, but the experts have done it. (Ex. movement of water in "New Super Mario Bros" in Nintendo DS)

good, my only criticism is that the grown keeps wobbling for a bit too long after the ball bounces off, and itd be very hard to make proper use of. i give it 9/10

oh and "new super mario bros" was not written in gml.... obviously, its prolly written in c so it allows much much much much much much much more control
