"electrical static" repulsion between bodies?

Postby EBjerrum » Thu Mar 03, 2016 6:59 am

I'm new to chipmunk and general physics engines in general, but I'm looking into modelling repulsion/anti-magnetism/electrical repulsion between the bodies. Is this possible in chipmunk? Are there anything implemented for these kind of effects?

Not directly, though years ago somebody had contributed a demo to implement them:
https://github.com/slembcke/Chipmunk2D/ ... e9b5019305

I think That was for Chipmunk 4.x probably? So it might take a little work to get it building. It was a really neat demo, but eventually I removed since I didn't want to support it as a feature.
