Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Spawn physics objects from a scene file, part of iOS Game Development: Swift 2.0 and SpriteKit.
- So we've looked at making a cannon…that follows your cursor or your finger…as you click and drag, or tap and drag back and forth.…And we've looked at making a ball that bounces…but what if we wanted to make the cannon shoot the ball?…Now there are a whole bunch of problems…that come because of that.…So we could say that whenever we click…we just take this ball and we move it inside the cannon.…So that's one solution.…But if we want to be able to have multiple balls…on the screen we need to be able to spawn them.…And when we create a sprite…we can set a texture for the sprite…but then we also have to manually set the physics properties…So everytime we create we'll have to set the bounding circle…set it to dynamic, effected by gravity,…and the restitution, et cetera.…
But what if we got our ball just right…and we wanted to just make copies of it…and we wanted to create a reproducible element…that we could simply drop into our game.…So let's look at how that might work.…So I don't present this as the only solution…
