Rope Swinging Physics
2 dimensional Rope Swinging Physics made with Guis
A few months back, I found a youtube channel. Dani. You may all know who he is by now, he’s a renowned unity game developer and a youtuber. I saw one of his old videos. Where he took up the challenge to develop a game in 30 minutes, and yeah, he did an amazing job. He created a fun little game about rope swinging. You hold onto targets using a rope, you swing high up and try to break as many targets as possible while trying not to fall or hit red targets. Here’s the video, if you would like to watch it:
Alas, back then, I wasn’t much of a 2D game developer, so couldn’t really make it on Roblox. But, 2 days ago, I was just lurking on the roblox website, something in my mind made me search for @boatbomber, and I found one of his games to be quite fun and similar to what Dani had made. This essentially struck my brain and gave me the idea, why not create rope swinging but exclusive of any 3D objects, just startergui?
And then, began my 2 day quest to make this come to life, and now I present to you, rope swinging physics made with guis!
Since this might be a never seen creation before, I’ll be open sourcing it! For you to learn, experiment, use it in your games or what ever in the world you want to do with it!
It has smooth inbuilt camera adjustment functionality, smooth physics, visible ropes, accurate target selecting!
You just hold you left mouse button, somewhere close to a pink target, and it selects the nearest target to cling too!
Don’t believe me, doubt that its made with guis or just want to test it out? Here! I uncopylocked the place!
That’s all I have got for today, I hope you enjoy these posts! Feedback, suggestions and questions are always welcome. Feel free to share them!
