Re: This weird level I made

Phew, I got it down to 52 moves, but I'm sure we're still far from perfect.

Re: Welcome!

Haha, yeah, announcement or not, you managed to find this within an hour of me posting it. Well done, ARP!

As to your confusion, I'll certainly be posting this week about it, but I wanted to get everything in place and give it a little test run first.

Re: The List

I was bummed that (not having a PC) I couldn't play the Stranger Loop *before*. But now that I see that whacked-out diagram you drew, I'm *really* bummed! Gotta see if I can mooch off a PC-owning friend. Seems brain-tingling.

Yeah, Robly, it took you a whole 24 hours to stumble across the forum? You must be losing your touch! ;)

Re: Great Level Design and the Artistic expression of maths

I really enjoyed your explanation of the Doppler Shift puzzle (~minute 28). It resonated with me, and reminded me of my methods. If you make a simulation with enough fidelity (be it a relativistic game engine, or the geometry and motion of bouncing balls), there are going to be some neat behaviors t...

Re: r^-5 "Orbital Decay"?

Oh, that's great! You've discovered an interesting fact about these force laws. It was only recently I added in the option to go as low as r^-5 force (before the minimum was r^-3). When I made the change, I noticed the same behavior. In fact, at the time, it was even worse... I couldn't get an aster...

Re: Welcome!

Ha, my first time running phpBB forum!

I still consider this (as everything) thoroughly in Beta mode. So if something doesn't look right, let me know, because it probably isn't!

Calling all Suggestions

There's a major update to the Gravity Simulator in the works. Not only will the game be playable on other platforms (like mobile devices and such), but I'm also looking to improve it. I've gotten a lot of great suggestions so far, but I am always on the lookout for more. So, what is it you'd like to...

The List

I figured to seed the discussions here, I'd start off by pulling together a list of games I've featured in the blog. -Electric Field Hockey, by PhET (http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/electric-hockey) -Quantum Chess (http://research.cs.queensu.ca/Parallel/QuantumChess/QuantumChess.html) -Untang...

Welcome!

Welcome to the new forum! It's a place for you all to get help when you're stuck on levels... and give help back to me, in the form of feedback/suggestions/requests. Who am I? Oh, just a guy who makes some games. In fact, I made all the games and simulations you see on this site. It goes without say...
