Deleting an object

Mar 4, 2009 at 10:58 AM
Just a simple question is there any way to delete an body and geom when they have been added to the physic engin

Indeed there is.

Use PhysicsSimulator.Remove() or call .Dispose() on the geom/body.
Remember that bodies and geometries is not removed right away when you use PhysicsSimulator.Remove(). They are removed on the next physics update.

You can exchange geometries on the fly by creating a new geometry with the same body. You can also do it the other way around.
The Geom class has a reference to the body class. (Geom.Body) but not the other way around. (No Body.Geom).

You can also make two geometries use the same body if you want to.
