shock absorber

Mar 27, 2009 at 6:56 AM

I tried to create a  trampoline using Farseer. I planned it to consist of two rectangles, one above another, connected with a simple shock absorber. At first I connected rectangles with simple linear spring, but trampoline's behaviour was awful (look at this picture: [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]). I tried to use different types of joints, but no one of them gave me desired result. What should I do to achieve my aim?

P.S. By the way, what does AngleSpring do ?


Sorry for bad english, it's not my native language =)

Angle spring is whats used for things like diving boards, its an angle limit joint but with dampening and spring constant and other spring features.
What you could do is make two fixed springs, attatch each one to a world point and the rectangle, this would set it up like a swing.
Sounds like it would work to me
