Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Work with gravity, part of iOS Game Development: Swift 2.0 and SpriteKit.
- So we've looked at our physics simulation already,…and we can test it by clicking that Animate button.…Maybe though, it moves a little too slowly for you.…Or everything feels a little bit floaty,…like it weighs too little.…We can modify how that feels and how that looks…using the gravity properties.…We can adjust gravity by simply…clicking away from everything else…and now we're selecting our scene.…So you should see Scene in the…Attributes Inspector.…Under hear, you'll see the Gravity section.…
Note that it's not just gravity along the Y-axis.…There's also gravity along the X-axis as well.…So, let's say I wanted everything…to fall a little bit faster.…I could change gravity by dragging that slider.…So, I can make everything heavier or…appear heavier because of the gravity.…So, I'll click the Animate button,…and there it is.…So the gravity property gives us control of that.…Well, what if we wanted to add gravity…along the X-axis.…
What would that look like?…Add some gravity there,…hit the animate button.…Everything's kind of going to the bottom left.…
