Egg weirdness

Post  waterbuffalo99 on Wed Jun 03, 2009 7:35 pm

Starting with tutorial06 I changed the shape of the spheres in blender to be egg shaped. I did this without doing anything else so I suppose the shape for collision detection is still a sphere. The effect is weird and kinda cool -- depending on how they come to rest one end is embedded in the surface, or they might be kind of hovering in mid air a bit.

There might be cases where it would be nice to have the bottom edge always sink into the surface a little so maybe I stumbled on a "feature".

--- update ---
I went back to blender and set the bounding shape to convex hull and now they behave better. Some remaining strangeness was apparently due to the centers needing to be fixed.
