Need to make a rope bridge in your game but don't want to mess around with glitchy physics? This project is for you! Simply draw and drop two points and create your own customizable rope bridge!
Results and Learning Outcomes:
The goal of this project was to simplify creation of a rope bridge, something that can often be an expensive visual effect with tools like Houdini, and make it more reliable as a set piece with stable, fixed colliders. The challenge of this task was in how ropes work in the real world - in order to accurately model a catenary curve without physics requires some fairly complex linear algebra. All in all, this project helped to spark Eliza's interest in advanced mathematics within games.
