3D Domino Physics Simulation! Answered

Just for fun, I made this little video.

And these



What do you think?
Anyways, I made that using a Physics simulation DLL for Gamemaker.
Rendered and everything on my Computer, I got Framerates a bit lower than 1(what do you expect with over 1000 Dominoes?), But the recorded video output is much faster than that.
Enjoy!

It is, which sucks alot when you want to do bombs and stuff, also has no snap tool for making brick buildings to blow up or throw stuff at.

You have a big object(the larger it is , the faster the explosion), anchor it, and fill the inside with tiny shapes, lots of em. rember that when you hit play, it'll blow right away, if u want one you can set off yourself, make a hollow bok and totally jam the insides with small objects.

Interesting! A question -- does the simulation have to have something massive "thrown into the pile"? Especially with your second video, can the simulation deal with simply "tipping" the tail domino and following the resulting cascade?

LOL, I used to kill so much time playing that.

Aha, That is the fun part, If you want normal dominoes tipping over just watch another simulation of the limitless out there.(or wait a few minutes for video #3 to finish recording :D)

Is it supposed to be silent?

I'm Sorry...But i can't get the sound in. The way it records is the program saves a frame at every step, every time a frame is rendered, it can't save the sound...even if it could, it would have bad timing.

I wasn't complaining - I was checking it wasn't a problem at my end.
