    Hey. I made some physics jelly blocks for fun and wanted to share it with everyone! Basically, they're cubes that have spring joints bound to each corner to the mesh.



    A download is attached. Enjoy and feel free to use this in your project(s)!

    Interesting. It'd be kind of cool if there were a way to apply this to a mesh or something like that. Could make a convicing skin effect, (pushing in on skin and having it cave in with pressure) XD But that'd probably be a stretch. (XD No pun was intended, but it works as one I guess.)

    at this point I'm in an pc with ubuntu and cant check it but looks interesting.

    From what I see in the shot and what I do imagine it could be something simililar to the lattice moddifier in 3dmax, but in real time.

    It might be usseful for defformating a car when crashing. Something I would be interested on :p

    Yes it's that simple!

    This is easy with other simple shapes, but not with complicated ones. We need to let PhysX deal with that. :p

    Car and terrain deformation can be done purely through script. The procedural examples (on unity3d.com) include a terrain deformation script. :wink:

    For complex shapes, I guess you could use a cloth simulator in like Cinema 4D, and use it as an animation... But still not dynamic... :(
