Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D Documentation

This class stores coordinate systems in 2D space, where the coordinate system represent the position of the 2D item and the tilt of the 2D item with respect to your screen. NOTE: this class can be seen as the class that stores a 3x3 transformation matri

Actions Documentation

Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Example Code

Object o
        Object t
        integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smalle

Parameters

Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

Equals(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action determines if two objects are equal based on their hash code values.

Example Code

use Libraries.Language.Object
        use Libraries.Language.Types.Text
        Object o
        Text t
        boolean result = o:Equals(

Parameters

Return

boolean: True if the hash codes are equal and false if they are not equal.

GetAngle()

This action gets the tilt of the 2D object in radians.

Return

number: the tilt of the 2D object in radian

GetCosine()

This action gets the cosine of the tilt of the 2D object described by this PhysicsPosition2D. To learn more about cosine, you can visit the tutorial page by MathIsFun: https://www.mathsisfun.com/sine-cosine-tangent.html

Return

number: the cosine of the tilt of the 2D objec

GetHashCode()

This action gets the hash code for an object.

Example Code

Object o
        integer hash = o:GetHashCode

Return

integer: The integer hash code of the object.

GetPosition()

This action gets the location of the 2D object (the 2D object's local origin) with respect to the global coordinates.

Return

Libraries.Compute.Vector2: the current position of the 2D objec

GetSine()

This action gets the sine of the tilt of the 2D object. To learn more about sine, you can visit the tutorial page by MathIsFun: https://www.mathsisfun.com/sine-cosine-tangent.html

Return

number: the sine of the tilt of the 2D objec

Multiply(Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transformA, Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transformB)

If the 2D object B's location is described from the point of view of the object "A," and this point of view is stored inside "PhysicsPosition2D transformB," and that the location of A is described from someone sitting at the global origin, and this point of view is stored inside "PhysicsPosition2D transformA," then this action finds out what would be the position and tilt of object B from someone that is sitting at the global origin. In mathematical terms, this would be T_A * T_B, where T_A and T_B are both transformation matrices.

Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D: the position of object B from the point of view from someone at the global origi

Multiply(Libraries.Game.Collision.PhysicsPosition2D transform, Libraries.Compute.Vector2 vector)
