      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

2 Triangle Meshes in Bullet Physics with btGImpact problem

1 post in this topic

So this was my simple test to drop 2 tetrahedron that is not working

I get the translation (but not the rotation)
And there is a lot of jittering and bouncing on impact

And they seem to collide and not actually bounce off each other as well.

Any Suggestions?

For quick test, try changing them to convex hulls. Just to rule out some issues with the algorithm or not.

Not related but occasions for cleanup:
I see a lot of redudant code: no need to call [font=courier new,courier,monospace]applyGravity[/font] (it's called in the simulation loop). You don't need to use [font=courier new,courier,monospace]btAlignedObjectArray[/font] to store [font=courier new,courier,monospace]btCollisionShape*[/font] as you are not storing objects there. It is my understanding it is a non-owning container (just as [font=courier new,courier,monospace]std::vector[/font] is), it will destroy the array itself by using its internal allocator without releasing the pointers. [font=courier new,courier,monospace]btAlignedObjectArray[/font] is intended to be used with [font=courier new,courier,monospace]btVector3[/font] or stuff like that for hi-perf SIMD processing, not as a generic container.

To be completely honest, I think I missed the code where you cleanup your memory.

Regardless of what the documentation writes, a rigid body is NOT dynamic just because mass is nonzero. Kinematics can also have 0 mass. The implication is: if mass is zero and object is not marked as kinematic then object is static.
You don't need to compute local inertia if that is zero, it's done for you in the ctor. Edited by Krohm
