In Topic: Magnet Physic's Problem

24 January 2013 - 02:11 AM

I was thinking that the two forces acting on each other would cause a dampening to the oscillation, since when playing with magnets in real life they eventually came to a rest above the base magnet. I wasn't thinking about air resistance. I suppose if I took the same magnets in real life and put them in a vacuum they wouldn't stop either.


As for having a range on the magnetic field, I needed to do that in order to control how many magnets were acting on the player, otherwise it would result in quite a few game breaking bugs. Though I suppose if I had the magnets properly responding to distance it wouldn't be a problem...

Specialize your personal projects, sure, but don't short change your education.

Edit: After receiving a PM from a Digipen student in response to this thread, I feel I should clarify things a bit. My point is that there is a trade-off with your education. Either option, going to a strong game development school or a more traditional school, is perfectly valid for the end result of getting a job as a game developer. Just don't expect either to give you an "advantage" in securing a job, and also realize that there will be differences in your curriculum.

The important thing is focusing on getting a strong education and doing what game developers do - making games [wink]

That was a beautiful speech. lol But I get what your saying, I am not asking because I want to get the advantage in securing a job, i just don't want to get screwed over at a school that doesn't really teach you what you need. Almost happened to me.
