[DESTRUCTION] Wreckreation
« 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!
This is a direct link to the .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!

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!
