Kinematic bodies, not shown in the previous screenshot, will be drawn with blue. Now it should also clear the concept of putting bodies to sleep and saving CPU work. As you can see, when the ball hits the ground, no other forces are acting on it, so it can be put to sleep until something happens. Now, a new problem. The ball did not bounce. We need to give our bodies some more attributes if we want to run a complete simulation. Density, friction, and restitution As you already know how to add bodies to the world, I want to introduce you to three attributes that will affect bodies' behavior: density, friction, and restitution.
1. shape=circleShape; Once we have created the fixture with the constructor, we assign the previously created shape using the shape property. 2. CreateFixture(fixtureDef); b2Body is the body itself: the physical, concrete body that has been created using the bodyDef attribute. 3. To recap, use the following steps when you want to place a body in the world: i. Create a body definition, which will hold body information such as its position. ii. Create a shape, which is how the body will look. iii.
CreateFixture(fixtureDef); [ 22 ] Chapter 2 6. ENTER_FRAME,updateWorld); } 7. Test the movie and you'll see the floor: [ 23 ] Adding Bodies to the World Can you see how easy it is? We took almost a chapter and an half to place our first body, and just a few more lines to add another body. Now it's time to worry about gravity, as the ball should fall down. Different body types – static, dynamic, and kinematic There are three types of Box2D bodies: static, dynamic, and kinematic. A static body does not react to any force, impulse, or collision and does not move.
