Solid

A Solid is an object that gets simulated with physics! Once you create a solid, it will continuously be acted upon by forces like gravity and other objects. Solid does -not- draw anything on its own, but you can ask a Solid for its current pose, and draw an object at that pose!

Once you create a Solid, you need to define its shape using geometric primitives, this is the AddSphere, AddCube, AddCapsule functions. You can add more than one to a single Solid to get a more complex shape!

If you want to directly move a Solid, note the difference between the Move function and the Teleport function. Move will change the velocity for a single frame to travel through space to get to its destination, while teleport will simply appear at its destination without touching anything between.

Instance Methods

   
Solid Creates a Solid physics object and adds it to the physics system.
AddBox This adds a box to this solid’s physical shape! This is in addition to any other shapes you’ve added to this solid.
AddCapsule This adds a capsule, a cylinder with rounded ends, to this solid’s physical shape! This is in addition to any other shapes you’ve added to this solid.
AddSphere This adds a sphere to this solid’s physical shape! This is in addition to any other shapes you’ve added to this solid.
GetPose Retreives the current pose of the Solid from the physics simulation.
Move This moves the Solid from its current location through space to the new location provided, colliding with things along the way. This is acheived by applying the velocity and angular velocity necessary to get to the destination in a single frame during the next physics step, then restoring the previous velocity info afterwards! See also Teleport for movement without collision.
SetAngularVelocity I wish I knew what angular velocity actually meant, perhaps you know? It’s rotation velocity of some kind or another!
SetEnabled Same as Enabled. Is the Solid enabled in the physics simulation? Set this to false if you want to prevent physics from influencing this solid!
SetType Changes the behavior type of the solid after it’s created.
SetVelocity Sets the velocity of this Solid.
Teleport Moves the Solid to the new pose, without colliding with objects on the way there.
