Angry Birds Slingshot

Hi! I can’t guess how to make a rubber band for a slingshot, like in the Angry Birds game. So that it changes the length from one point to another in a straight line. I made a shot, I can’t draw an elastic band.

I’ve seen people use physics joints to create chains and rope. I have trouble understanding the various joints. There are a lot of different types. You might also be able to draw it with a shape painter or manipulate sprites depending how much realism that you want. Or a combination of all of them.

I’ve had some success with drawing curves and using objects with the physics behavior for control or reference points.

I hope this narrows your search.

Joints are an interesting idea. But I couldn’t understand them)

I had an inspiration. It needs work. I don’t know how to connect everything but I think this is a start.

Click and drag anywhere to pick a ball and then release. (not the balls themselves)
The X sprites are draggable just to experement.

This is a perfect example. Thank you so much for your help! Tomorrow morning I will study it and implement it)
