Hello,

 

Sorry for possible usage of wrong terms, I'm very new to game development.

 

I'm looking for an engine capable of calculating collision result as a simple "logical state" with little to no "precision".

 

 

A bit more detailed explanation:

 

2 assumed solid objects collide with known speed, size, and material properties, while parameters such as angle/position/exact form are irrelevant

 

I need to know the resulting logical state for each object, but not what exactly happened to them

 

 

Examples (not actual usage, just to get an idea):

 

- a thrown pebble hits a wooden crate. Results: crate is not affected, pebble is bounced back

- a thrown axe hits a wooden crate. Results: crate is cut, axe stopped

- a fired bullet hits a wooden crate. Results: crate is pierced, bullet continues moving

- a stopping car hits a wooden crate. Results: crate is bounced forward and takes impact damage, car is not affected
