A Pendulum

This week I worked on creating a pendulum to have a light swinging from a fixture. Since the video was made I have made it far more realistic, by attaching the rope to the top of the swinging light rather than the middle as seen here - it has been taking me a bit of time to learn how to use Farseer, which turns out to be rather picky about the values it receives. I’ve learned to basically keep everything between 1.0 and 10.0 if at all possible.

Different colored boxes and lines float against a black background, with a line between two of the boxes creating a pendulum.
