Collider:setLinearDamping

Sets the Collider's linear damping parameter. Linear damping is similar to drag or air resistance, slowing the Collider down over time. Damping is only applied when linear velocity is over the threshold value.

Collider:setLinearDamping(damping, threshold)

Arguments

NameTypeDefaultDescription
dampingnumberThe linear damping.
thresholdnumber0Velocity limit below which the damping is not applied.

Returns

Nothing

Notes

A linear damping of 0 means the Collider won't slow down over time.

Linear damping can also be set on the World using World:setLinearDamping, which will affect all new colliders.
