Pass through wood pole & balancing

Postby wokka wokka on Wed Aug 13, 2008 10:49 pm

I was messing about with basic concepts, and found this happened. (on a user created level, so if you haven't paid, you can't get in, and should and go and pay right now)

On my PC the payload thing goes throught the wooden rods like they aren't there?
Small glitch but looks weird.

Also during the same bit of playing, managed this double balance

The wood pole is actually slightly tilted to the right, but seems to go upright, and wheel thing must just be a fluke.

The first one is mentioned in another topic (if the distance an object moves over one frame is further than the thickness of an object, it won't collide with the object).

The second one suggests that the beam is a long thin rectangle in the physics system, and it's balancing on the flat end.
