Hello everyone, i'm new at this forum, but i'v started to read it fue years ago. So i'v been coding about 5 years from now, i have average skills at maths and physics. I know vectors, matrices, trigonometrics, giometrics and that kind of stuff. I writed a game engine and i'v allways wanted to make a 2d physics engine. And the question is, am i going to far?. I know that to write a physics engine would be hard. And were i can start?. I never coded physics before.

Buy this book: Real-Time Collision Detection

But it's a very hard topic. Most people just use existing libraries because writing a good physics engine can take years. Obviously if this is interesting to you plow ahead.

It's probably useful to take a look at other engines anyway so you get a feel for the interface: Box2D, PhysX, Bullet are all available for free and are very good.
