Help test new FAST collisions with the latest beta!

Hi Hops,

@Nazari has been hard at work on a new algorithm that makes your collisions WAY faster.

You can check it out by in this beta: https://testflight.apple.com/join/vvTykuD6

Please help us make this great by downloading the beta and doing everything you can to try and break collisions. That way we can release a bug-free version ASAP to the community at large.

Post any projects you make that show weird behavior in the comments.

Thank you!

I know, I saw. Collisions as in “is bumped” and “is touching”?

Yes. That’s right.

Here are some examples that I made on the staging app:

Nice!

I’ve been trying to use collisions more while coding

Wow! That’s amazing! Thanks for letting us try it out early.

This is awesome

How many clones can it go with little to no lag? I tried it and it was around 10-15

Did you test it in the beta, or the normal version? I can test something in the beta if you want.

You have to download the beta to test it.
If you can download testflight you should be able to install it!

…I know. I installed testflight ages ago, and I have downloaded the latest beta which you linked. I am currently messing around with it.

What do you mean?

nm, I got confused by the threading

That’s fine! :slight_smile:

This beta is really cool!
I tried making a fill tool a while back, but it was way too laggy to be feasible. Now in the new version, it works great.

It’s still fairly basic though.

Great work @AwesomeOnion and @Nazari!

That is a HUGE improvement that was long overdue and I am so glad to see this!
(so this will completely skip the beta editor due to its importance, right? That’s what it seems like rn)

The beta editor is for the super cool extra stuff. This is a “bug fix” in a manner of speaking…

Awesome! I don’t use collisions that often, but this is amazing! Thank you so much THT and @Nazari - I’m sure this will help us make even better and advanced projects!

Could just be because it’s a slightly older device, but on my iPad Air the update doesn’t really seem to change collision performance at all. Still decreases fps by like 40% when an object is close to another and looking for bumps

That’s interesting! Can you publish the project you made?

Something to look out for: if the project was started with an older version, we will keep it at that version. So a remix might not get the latest collisions. If it’s a draft you can long press to see if you get the option to “upgrade to the latest version”.
