About 'Prevent Boring Ball Loops'!



In this video (objectives)…

  1. What's our problem? Boring ball loops.
  2. How can we solve it? Adding velocity tweaks to our balls when they bounce into things.

After watching (learning outcomes)… Add velocity tweaks to our balls to stop them being boring.

Hi there,
First time posting here. I am learning so much from your lectures, so thanks! - I wanted to say that I never have the problem of the ball just going horizontal and it is because I never changed the gravity in project settings to zero.

Thanks for the post!


Hi, my ball slows down over time. I have the randomFactor set between 0.2 and 0.85. I’ve also tried keeping gravity at -9.81, and have tried other numbers. And occasionally the ball hits the paddle and just totally slows to almost zero velocity.
