Simulating Gravity

Here are the steps I took to make this.

1. I created a sun movieclip and an earth movieclip and placed them on the stage with instance names ball1 and ball2 respectively.
2. I used FlashGuru's function that determines the distance between two movieclips and returns a distance object (with a slight modification).
3. Using the info in the distance object I determined what the velocities and accelerations of the bodies.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
