AW 5.1 Beta has been released by AWI and features physics which is a landmark implementation for the program.  You can check out the changes at the Activewiki and if you are a beta user, login to update your client.



Edit: AW 5.1 is now available to all users in the AW Universe.

This is groundbreaking news for AW. Might be able to get over the ol' builders block and get super-motivated again.  :D

This feature has been extremely exciting and fun.  There's quite a few bugs and some oddities, but hopefully they'll be worked out before public release.  This has so much potential to revolutionize building like V4s/scale.

Does it seem like the new 5.1 beta browser renders faster than before? Just seems quicker overall and I'm loving that responsivess. (Yes, my account was fixed. Thank you Tom!)

I've only been using the new browser for a few minutes, but I also did notice that the dialog boxes, when resized over the viewport, seem to trail bits and pieces until you release the mouse button. I assume thats a side effect of making the browser more responsive.

Well, didn't take long to figure out the collider command, but I am still trying to figure out how to use the addforce command if anyone has some suggestions. So far really cool. (edit: I figured out the addforce command, thanks)

Here's a little 30 second video of some falling objects.

there was a bridge made of rope that someone made crossing a river or something, I thought it'd be really neat if someone applied some forces to that when you walked across it the bridge would crumble beneath :D

*waits for someone to make it* ;D  [baro]

Soon as we get joints, we could build things like rope bridges that swing and react more like real bridges. :)

Tauntaun had a good one over in Scoperta that used AAA.  Could make it a ton better now, obviously, with much more ease.
