Dear all,

Do the units in the properties actually equate to something meaningful?

On the Platform behaviour for example, what does Max fall Speed actually mean? I see the default is set to 1000, but that's obviously not pixels.

Maybe it's 100x the unit, as I could well understand a max fall speed of 10 pixels.

...or am I just thinking about this in the wrong way?

I believe the unit is always pixels. and for something like Max Fall speed it's Pixels per second.

in the case of the properties bar, at the bottom is the properties descriptions box.
link to manual page that talks about it

This gives info on each item. onzephyr2012-01-12 21:49:04

Ahh - didn't see that properties description at the bottom.

1000 pixels per second sounds like a lot until you divide it up in to frames per second.

Many thanks.

Project Structure in the manual also has a section on common units.
