|fixture||the index of the fixture|
|damping||the angular damping of the fixture, usually between 0 and 1|
If you think about any rotating object in the "real world",
unless it has a motor or is in space, it slows down over time due
to the influence of external forces (like friction with the air
around it). We can use the function
physics_fixture_set_angular_damping() in GameMaker:
Studio to simulate this effect and reduce the velocity of
rotation of instances in the physics world, as, without it, any
rotating instance would continue to rotate infinitely. Damping
parameters should be between 0 and infinity, with 0 meaning no
damping, and infinity meaning full damping. Normally you will use a
damping value between 0 and 1.
The code above will set the angular damping of the fixture indexed in "fix_ball" to 0.1.
