This was one of the final things I created in Algodoo. I created this on a long car trip from Florida to Iowa, where for the majority of the time I did not have internet, so I instead spent most of my time (besides being bored) working on this machine, which is based off another script-based marble machine I had seen in Algobox. I decided to not do a video on this because by this point my newer Algodoo videos were getting barely any videos in comparison to my other content.
This was one of my first audio synchronized videos. It was also the 2nd version of the jaws ride of which I had built, thus starting a wave of replicas I never realized would become so successful and long lasting.
For anyone that’s interested, here’s the video of the V1 version. In this version everything runs on large rotating wheels, thus why the timing of some events is awkward.
The video listed is from 2012, you can actually see some of the diffrences between that version and the current one in the photo.
I first created this is 2012 and have been tweaking it over the years. The most recent and significant improvement (as of 2017) is the new anti-ball loss system, where if a ball falls on the floor it gets respawned at the beginning.
