JigLibXActor is the QuickStart Engine's wrapper for the JigLibX Physics Engine's Actor class. This wrapper acts as a physics entity's link between the QuickStart Engine and JigLibX.

  • Density
    • JigLibX
      • JigLibX uses density (and volume) to determine the mass of a physics body, the lower the density a body of a specific size has, the lighter it will be, and the less force it will apply during collisions with other bodies.
    • QuickStart Engine
      • The QuickStart Engine adds additional calculations based on physics.
      • Buoyancy is calculated whenever a dynamic physics body lies within a body of water that has a WaterPhysicsComponent.
  • Buoyancy
    • This is a feature of the QuickStart Engine that is not available in JigLibX.
    • Buoyancy calculations are done within the WaterPhysicsComponent.
