waffle: i was thinking the same thing! maybe a pause, maybe, to see how exactly something worked, or for flukes, or for taking planned screenies :D.

p.s.: what gave you the idea to get your ava? -.o

Yeah, I'd love ffw and pause. ffw would help so much when tweaking long-winded designs.

Internet Explorer has a built in pause function (read: 'Bug') for FC. Just hold alt and hit space while your contraption is running. Works on my IE pro anyway. Not sure about other browsers.

That doesnt make the game has it, that pauses your browser, so you cant pause and go look something up, or report what you see in the contraption going wrong on a discussion of it, etc.

ya know what would be ipecac?

Ya, I know that, hence the 'bug' comment. I was just pointing out a way to pause a running contraption. It's useful in a lot of ways, a functional pause or frame by frame would be awesome as well.

i know c: I was typing before i decided to post a picture of my idea, so i felt rushed and took a quick screenie and found a pic of an ipod touch and just moved over the controls; took like 20 seconds. I could make it believable if ya want.

I was thinking of a tool where you could select multiple pieces of your design at once, like drag a box and then move those pieces like normal but they would both move the exact same, it would help for things like tweak master a lot.

What i do for that is connect them all to a joint, move them, and then disconnect them.

Ovals are fairly easy to implement. Unfortunately, they slow down the game engine considerably and add little to no value; definitely not enough to outweigh the performance drop. Simply not worth it! (in my opinion, anyway)


With oval, there could be handling with a wheel though, so ovals would present lots of new challenges

Perfectly understandable. Although it would be awesome, I agree, just thinking about the physics involved slows my calculating power by 400%.

Is it the formula that generates/maintains the shape of the oval hard on the game engine or something?

Its the physics of how it rolls that are hard on the game
