Should I use gravity like that on the left or on the right in the Intelligence RPG?
Left is easier to code, but right is more realistic.

(I used one character height for two tiles high here, so ' is the high tile and . is the low one)

Why is the gravity on right side is realistic?

Because it involves the freefall acceleration.

Would you fall at a constant speed in reality?

Some objects do.
Left isd ine for me, and if it makes you easier, g use it then :)

olivier, there are NO objects that freefall without acceleration.

Know something about F=mg?

Bubbles have acceleration ? featers have acceleration ?

They accelerate to a point, until air friction causes them to reach their maximum velocity.  But in
a vacuum, they would fall just like anything else.  Try going to the moon with a feather and a
bowling ball, and drop them at the same time from the same height.  They will both hit at the same
time, and they will both accelerate the same.

Okay, by a flowchart I made, it doesn't look like it'll be much harder to make the more
realistic looking gravity.  It'll have to have a terminal velocity, otherwise it'll get
ridiculously fast.  I guess it'll damage you if you fall too far.

Yes, do the right one. Jumping and falling at a constant speed looks *really* bad, even in pixelly
retro games!
