New Levels / No bridges!
« on: December 10, 2001, 03:24:10 PM »
This software is great not only to bulid bridges! Create your own levels and find out how a crane, for example, is stressed if the load is swinging back and forth. It took me some hours to get this 12-story-monster balanced and rigid enough to hold a swinging heavy steel beam.

did anyone create interesting no-bridge levels?

Next Version Ideas / Variable scale
« on: December 15, 2001, 03:54:06 AM »
I love to create other things than bridges. Often, the mechanism becomes to big and is not stable enough. If I could downsize the scale, the physics of smaller dimensions would be different and mechanical functions could be designed without worrying about - say - the weight of a beam. Also, hinges would help, but this was already mentioned at other topics.

My idea of variable scales is not worked out in any way. I guess, with a smaller scale, things happen much faster on the screen and therefore we all need supercomputers or we accept slow motion shows, so, itīs just an idea. Changing some physical parameters while changing the scale should not be too hard for CL.
