Title: [DESTRUCTION] Wreckreation
Post by: Kirl on March 25, 2011
Hi all, Here's my entry for the destruction challenge.

I used a lot of new tricks, quite a few headscratchers and hairpullers along the way, but I'm pleased with the final result. Another very usefull challenge, steadily expanding my box of tricks. :)

I'd love to hear about performance, I'm working on a crawling laptop and was only able to test on another very fast machine. So I had to guestimate the average speed of things.

Try it here! (http://kirl.nl/wreckreation.html)
This is a direct link to the .swf (http://kirl.nl/Wreckreation2.swf), so it's fullscreen and you can resize it with your browser window.

[EDIT] There is a little easter egg in there, let me know if you found it!

Oh yeah and as far as I can tell performance is fine on my 5 yo. Celeron.  ;)

Thanks all!

This was another productive challenge for me, I hate bouncing off of angles because of the laborious calculations. For this demo I tried an idea I had for quite some time, turns out it was very easy to implement.

I put a ring of non-transparent pixel checks around each ball and precalulated the balls bounce angle for every one. Used a similar setup for spreading the fire.

Glad you like the results!

It's a very effective technique, and the way the fire spreads is pretty natural looking.

Now THAT'S how you do a proper fire effect in Flash. That was full of suprises.

Thanks CK, the main secret to the fire effect is setting the blendmode of the fire particles to additive.

flameParticle.blendMode = "add";

I haven't seen that property before - I'll experiment with it. Thanks for pointing it out, K+  :D

This is great!  Might get a minus point for destroying our own logo though!

very nice. Suffers from usual flash stuff where mouse control gets lost, but love it.
Lots of details and love the burn fx!

I noticed I forgot to include this in the end scroller, but you can press alt at any time to toggle the easter egg on and off.  :D

Thanks for the wonderful comments all!
