This function sets the linear damping value of a fixture.


GML Code Example

physics_fixture_set_linear_damping(fixture, damping)

Argument Description
fixture the index of the fixture
damping the damping of the fixture, usually between 0 and 1

Returns: N/A


Damping is used to reduce the physics world velocity of instances, and differs from friction in that friction only occurs when two instances with fixtures are in contact. Damping is also much cheaper to simulate than friction, but please note that damping is not a replacement for friction; the two effects can, and should, be used together. Here is an image to illustrate damping:

Damping parameters should be between 0 and infinity, with 0 meaning no damping, and infinity meaning full damping. Normally you will use a damping value between 0 and 1.


GML Code Example

physics_fixture_set_linear_damping(fix_Ball, 0.1);

The code above will set the linear damping of the fixture indexed in "fix_ball" to 0.1.
