You know that college kid who says he wants to make video? He draws up half a design document and tells everyone he knows he's a game designer and all he needs is a team of people and he'll be rich and famous in no time. I'm not that guy. I have a passion for not just experiencing video games but also creating them. I still look like that kid: in school, not making money yet from my games, occasionally slacking, and maybe a bit TOO enthusiastic, but I'm absolutely dedicated.

comment Graphics not being displayed on OUYA
@Sidar, I have been posting on their forums (bit.ly/XFVpnP) and even emailed their dev support team to no avail. The only suggestion I've heard is create a test app with Libgdx and go from there. However, I have seen others getting libgdx to work, so I don't understand why mine won't.

I have just updated to LibGDX v0.9.7 to no avail. I assumed that some updated libraries/drivers would do the trick, but no dice.

Yeah, I'm not sure how to do that. I'm using Libgdx and there are no errors, everything is running smoothly.

It would be nice if you explain what object_specific_constant and how to find it. I suppose sketch is the wrong choice of words.

Also, make sure your world's gravity is high enough to make your objects fall as fast as you want them to. Real world gravity is -9.8, but you may want to go higher.

comment How to Make Objects Fall Faster in a Physics Simulation
I agree with what you say about inertia, but this is not how it should be handled in Box2d. Firstly, if you want any kind of realism in your physics, NEVER manually set the velocity as you suggest in point 1. Applying vertical forces and impulses may get you closer to what you are trying to achieve (especially forces) but again, are the incorrect way of handling this and will not give the effect you are looking for.

comment How to Make Objects Fall Faster in a Physics Simulation
Although everything about this answer is correct, adding a drag force would be the incorrect way to handle the problem. Box2D already has built-in functionality for this. Not to mention, the equation you provide is pretty sketch.

comment Moving CW or CCW?
A much simpler solution, and also my first thought.

comment How to determine which thrusters to turn on to rotate the ship?
You are headed in the right direction with force vectors. Try looking up formulas for ANGULAR velocity since you are trying to rotate the ship around center of mass.

@GameDev-er that's alright. Thanks for pointing out those issues before it was closed :)

Well, I removed any links and mentions of my specific contest. I believe this could truly be helpful to people in my situation. I have never run a contest before and I'm not sure what I need to do to be fully, legally prepared.
