phy_speed

Returns the speed of the physics enabled instance.

Syntax:

phy_speed;


Returns: Real


Description

This read-only variable returns the speed as a value in pixels-per-second of the physics enabled instance. Should you need to change this value, you must do so by changing the x and y vectors using the variables phy_speed_x and phy_speed_y.


Example:

if phy_speed > 10
   {
   phy_linear_damping += 0.01;
   }
else
   {
   phy_linear_damping = 2;
   }

The above code checks the speed of the physics enabled instance and then changes the linear damping based on the returned value.
