Net physics on show!

Hey everyone!

If you guys were active on Twitter, Youtube and Facebook you’ve already seen our video on goal nets. I remember when I was back at my former job, that a lot of fans asked me about the goal nets and they always brought up another game called Football Kingdom and how they looked in it. The feeling fans want is that the net moves realistically with a nice ripple effect to it.

So when I arrived in Helsinki and for the first time set foot in the office I thought to myself, let’s start with something easy. After having introduced myself to the team, I asked Jouni, “How does net physics work?”, and I wasn’t even expecting them to work, but they did and Jouni showed me. This was even before I had tried the game out so it was the first time I saw a 3D element in the game. It looked colorful and realistic and I was impressed.

There’s another reason why I posted this video now and it is mainly because we are working on Goalkeepers at the moment. Since I don’t have any footage of that (yet), I thought it was nice to post something that relates to them. I can also tell you that, since last week, post and bar physics have also been introduced. That means that in the videos you’ve seen of gameplay so far, you either shot within or outside the goal, or inside or above the bar. 😀

Until next time. Stay Sociable.
