World:setLinearDamping

Sets the linear damping of the World. Linear damping is similar to drag or air resistance, slowing down colliders over time as they move. Damping is only applied when linear velocity is over the threshold value.

Arguments

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

Returns

Nothing

Notes

A linear damping of 0 means colliders won't slow down over time. This is the default.

Linear damping can also be set on individual colliders.
