Stacking Boxes in Unity

How many boxes can you stack in Unity? Thomas finds out!

While working on a prototype recently, I was mocking up a structure made of a tower of boxes in Unity’s physics engine. I could not get them to stack in a stable way, which surprised me because it was ‘only’ 15 boxes high. I realized that I don’t know how many boxes you can reasonable expect...

In der kommenden Woche findet die gamesweekberlin statt und wir sind so etwas wie die Vorband. 🎮 Bei unserer Twitch Week @kas zocken wir live mit Gamedesignern ihre Serious Games. Von Montag bis Donnerstag streamen wir jeweils ab 18.00 Uhr live auf Twitch! Immer im Fokus steht dabei die Frage, wie Games Politik vermitteln. Seid dabei und stellt live eure Fragen 👉 https://www.twitch.tv/konradadenauerstiftung/ Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Paintbucket Games game - Verband der deutschen Games-Branche Saftladen Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur
Es heißt wieder: Let's Play und das vom 26.-29. Oktober bei uns auf Twitch.tv. 🥳 Starten werden wir mit der Suche nach Leon in "Leons Identität" von der Bildundtonfabrik. Gemeinsam mit Entwickler Hans Böhme zocken wir und sind dabei auf eure Hilfe angewiesen! 🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♂️ Eure ganz eigene Welt entwerfen? "Imagine Earth" mit Jens Isensee von den Serious Brothers ermöglicht euch das am Dienstag, 27.10.2020 ab 18:00 Uhr 🙂 "Through the Darkest of Times" gehen wir mit Jörg Friedrich und Paintbucket Games am Mittwoch, 28.10.201 - seid auch ihr dabei? Am Donnerstag, 29.10.20 stellen wir uns einem großen Problem dieser Zeit: Fakenews! "Fake It To Make It" zocken wir mit Eric Jannot von Waza Games. 🥳 Adenauer Campus Saftladen game - Verband der deutschen Games-Branche gamesweekberlin
🤝 Politik & #Games, geht das? Jawohl, das geht - und zwar sehr gut! #DigitaleSpiele sind in Deutschland beliebt wie nie zuvor. Die Unterhaltung steht dabei im Mittelpunkt. Klar! Aber nicht nur: Eine Vielzahl digitaler #Spiele transportiert politische Inhalte und bietet durch ihre spielerische Interaktivität einen neuen Zugang zu komplexen Themen. Was hinter den Konzepten von solchen #SeriousGames steckt und welche Potentiale sich bei der Politikvermittlung erschließen lassen, damit beschäftigt sich der heutige Twitch-Stream der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung "Politik & Games?! Let's play - for a better world". Der Stream wird im Saftladen durchgeführt. Mit den Serious Game-Entwicklern Jörg Friedrich, Jens Isensee und Prof. Eric Jannot werden jeweils ihre digitalen Spiele zu den Themen #Nachhaltigkeit (Imagine Earth), #FakeNews ("Fake It To Make It) und Widerstand im #Nationalsozialismus (Through the Darkest of Times) gespielt. Während der Let's Plays sprechen sie über die gesellschaftlichen Fragen, die sie motivieren und die politischen Botschaften in den Spielen. Zuschauer können ebenfalls Fragen stellen. 💻 Schaltet ein! Der Stream startet um 16:00 Uhr.
What a great event we were last week, streaming the game Through the Darkest of Times, enjoying the company of Paintbucket Games, Writing Bull, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and all our guests at the Saftladen (in Berlin). Here are some impressions of that day:
[GERMAN ONLY] Kurzer Talk mit Writing Bull und Markus, CEO von HandyGames, im Saftladen bei unserem Entwickler Paintbucket Games - gegen 12 Uhr geht unser Livestream zu Through the Darkest of Time los! Spieler und Entwickler reden und diskutieren gemeinsam mit Writing Bull über die Entscheidungen die im Spiel getroffen werden müssen. 🎮
Last week we travelled to Sweden together with 17 developers, designers and writers from Berlin to make games in the middle of the countryside. This year's Indie School Trip was an amazing experience and we met amazing people from all over the world. Thanks to the organisers, Saftladen for sponsoring and Spelkollektivet for hosting the event!
Berlin ist berühmt für seine Kreativ-Szene und ein wichtiger Teil davon sind Spieleentwickler, deren Spiele unser inneres Kind erfreuen, uns etwas beibringen oder unsere Koordination oder Geschicklichkeit fordern. Ein entzückendes Maskottchen erwartet Dich auf www.saftladen.berlin, einer Seite eines Indie Game Colletive mit Sitz in Berlin. Jede Menge Spiele warten darauf, von Dir entdeckt zu werden. Saftladen
