Unigine::BodyFracture Class

Header: #include <UniginePhysics.h>
Inherits: Body

This class is used to simulate destructable fracture bodies. There are three patterns of the fracturing:

New surfces that are created when fracturing occurs are assigned their own material and properties.
Notice
Fracture body can be used with meshes in form of a simple primitive: boxes, spheres, capsules, cylinders, etc. Complex meshes cannot be fractured procedurally.

Fracture body is, per se, a rigid body and moves according to the rigid bodies dynamics.

void addForce( const Math::vec3 & force )

Applies a force to the center of mass of the body.

Unlike impulses, all forces are accumulated first, then the resulting force is calculated and applied to the body (during the physics simulation stage, when the body update() function is called).

Notice
You can call this function only from flush() function in the world script. Do not apply forces in the update() function, because you will get unstable result that varies each rendering frame.

Arguments

Applies a force to a point determined by a given radius vector, specified in the local coordinates. This function calculates the cross product of the radius vector and the force vector. It acts like a lever arm that changes both linear and angular velocities of the body.

Unlike impulses, all forces are accumulated first, then the resulting force is calculated and applied to the body (during the physics simulation stage, when the body update() function is called).

Notice
You can call this function only from flush() function in the world script. Do not apply forces in the update() function, because you will get unstable result that varies each rendering frame.

Notice
If a body is frozen, it can't be immediately unfrozen. If the object's velocities are above minimum, it needs the engine.physics.getNumFrozenFrames() flush frames to be specified to unfreeze. To make sure that impulse will be applied, check if a body is not frozen by isFrozen() and unfreeze it by setFrosen(0) if needed.
