In this article by Maxime Barbier , author of the book SFML Blueprints , we will add physics into this game and turn it into a new one. By doing this, we will learn: What is a physics engine How to install and use the Box2D library How to pair the physics engine with SFML for the display How to add physics in the game
In this article, written by Cedric Rajendran , author of the book Getting Started with VMware Virtual SAN , we will discuss one of the key characteristics of Virtual SAN called Storage Policy Based Management ( SPBM ). Traditionally, storage capabilities are tiered and provisioned. Some of the key attributes for tiering are performance, capacity, and availability. The actual implementation of tiers is performed at the hardware level, governed by physical disk capabilities and RAID configuration. VSAN, however, establishes the capabilities at the software layer through policies. Here we will closely review: Why is SPBM used? Attributes that are configurable through SPBM Understand how SPBM works Overall, we will discuss the various permutations and combinations of the policy-based management of storage, and how this method modernizes storage provisioning and paves the way for being truly software-defined.
So, this is it! Finally, we move from the 2D world to 3D. With SceneKit, we can make 3D games quite easily, especially since the syntax for SceneKit is quite similar to SpriteKit. When we say 3D games, we don't mean that you get to put on your 3D glasses to make the game. In 2D games, we mostly work in the x and y coordinates. In 3D games, we deal with all three axes x , y , and z . Additionally, in 3D games, we have different types of lights that we can use. Also, SceneKit has an inbuilt physics engine that will take care of forces such as gravity and will also aid collision detection. We can also use SpriteKit in SceneKit for GUI and buttons so that we can add scores and interactivity to the game. So, there is a lot to cover in this article. Let's get started. The topics covered in this article by Siddharth Shekar , the author of Learning iOS 8 Game Development Using Swift , are as follows: Creating a scene with SCNScene Adding objects to a scene Importing scenes from external 3D applications Adding physics to the scene Adding an enemy
