Floating Sandbox is an interactive game where you can sink ships, throw them around, bend them, burn them, and so on. There are many different ways in which you can destroy a ship in Floating Sandbox, what’s your way?
Technically speaking, the game is a realistic two-dimensional particle system, which uses mass-spring networks to simulate rigid bodies (such as ships) floating in water. You can punch holes in an object, slice it, apply forces and heat to it, set it on fire, melt it, and smash it with bomb explosions. Once water starts rushing inside the object, it will start sinking and, if you’re lucky enough, it will start breaking up!
At the time of writing the simulator implements classical Newtonian dynamics, hydrostatics (water and air buoyancy), thermodynamics (heat propagation, dissipation, and combustion), and basic electrotechnics.
