It's time to postpone working and studying, and have some fun. Here is my first game for Android: Drift Insane - drift racing simulator! It's now in active development, but you can already try out to get familiar with game mechanics.
Drift Insane is a bit different from most of the games available in Store. You have a view from top (2D). You don't have to pivot your device for steering, it's controlled with slider. Accelerator pedal is controlled with slider as well, which gives you more control over your vehicle. You have to push gear speed manually and you have two buttons for footbrake and handbrake.
Lesson 6 - Solving problems of statics
Internal and external loads
Regarding to the specific mechanical system, all loads can be divided into two groups: internal and external. As mentioned in lesson 3, solving of mechanical problem starts from mentally isolating mechanical system from the outer world, and replacing impacts from the surrounding bodies on our system with forces and torques. By "mechanical system" are meant a single body or a group of bodies, which are somehow interacting with the outer world.
Lesson 5 - Equilibrium and reactions
Equilibrium is a core concept of statics. Equilibrium of the body means that body is in the rest state relative to surrounding bodies. In other words, the body is static in some desired coordinate system. For instance, your house is in rest state (in equilibrium state) relative to the earth. The house isn't moving anywhere despite a set of forces is applied to him: gravity, background friction force, pressure of the fallen tree above the roof:
Lesson 4 - adding forces, reducing a system of forces to a center
Now you know that force is a vector quantity (as well as Torque). Several forces can be applied to mechanical system and it's usually a good step to simplify the system of forces, reducing them to one resulting force and one resulting torque. In order to do that we have to find a geometrical sum of force vectors.
The system of four forces applied to the airplane:
- Thrust force Ft
- Gravity force Fg
- air Drag force Fd
- air Lift force Fl
Lesson 3 - Force and Torque
As you already know, the subject of mechanics is mechanical interaction between bodies. This interaction needs to be evaluated and measured somehow, since it has some intensity, area of application, direction. For this purpose the concept of "Force" is introduced. Force is a measure of power interaction between the bodies. This interaction occurs when bodies come in contact with each other.
Force is represented with a vector. This means, it has a magnitude (length), direction, line of impact and application point.
