simpleParticle01 1.0

Draw particles with the mouse
  1 Screenshot
simpleParticle01 is a software written in Python and PyGame which allows users to draw particles with the mouse.

LMB draws particles, RMB clears the screen.

When particles get near one another, they connect via a line.

When new connections are made, there is a particle burst.

Mainly just did it for fun, not very fast.

I wrote this in couple afternoons. Hadn’t done any projects like this in a while, but this was a simple task I wanted to tackle: Draw particles with the mouse, when close generate an interaction, and when the interaction occurs trigger an event. In a nutshell, that’s what this does: LMB draws red, unfilled particles that slowly fall down the screen. When they get close together, a latticework of lines will draw between them: The more lines that connect them, the more opaque they get. When the lines are created, a ‘burst’ of smaller white particles will emit from the larger red particle that spawned the line. The app was mainly just written for leisure, it’s not that speedy. But was a nice relaxing thing to do over the weekend.
