Simple and fast faking of cables hanging between two points (made for another project).
Not physic base, it use Bézier curves to fake a lot of cables at once (±320 cables at 10 steps, @30fps)

  • Right and left click to move last cable's start/end point.
  • ❎ to add a cable
  • 🅾️ to remove a cable
  • ➡️ to increase number of steps
  • ⬅️ to decrease number of steps
  • ⬇️ or wheel-down to increase the dangling of the cables
  • ⬆️ or wheel-up to decrease the dangling of the cables
  • pause menu to enable/disable debug view (show steps and controls points)



  • fixed buttons UI typo


  • added dangling control
  • tweaked controls

Reminds me of hanging Christmas lights, @choo-t. Perhaps there is a game in that idea ?

@dw817 Maybe in December, but for now, I was tinkering with the idea of some logic gate / circuit game.

@dw817, that's the premise of Christmas Sneks 2. The light string has a draping arc when it's plugged in, but I based on circular curve rather than a Bézier curve, which would have been much cooler. I really wanted a catenary, but didn't have the time or inclination to figure out the math.

@Ivoah You may want to check it, it's released
