Tether an object between two other objects

quick question, im trying to design a rubberband system similar to knuckles chaotix, but with one object in between both objects instead of a chain. how would i start this process?

I’m not sure what you want to do. I’m not familiar with that game.

The x,y for the center between 2 points is the sum of the of x-values /2 , the sum of y-values by 2. (It’s basically the averages)

Is the center object fixed? Does it slowly move toward that location using forces?

yea srry, i kinda realized i was being a bit too vague. to be a bit more clear let just focus on the chain effect. im tryin to figure out how to design the tether/chain effect similar to the ones found in early sega genesis games (kinda of like how they would portray chains links with a line of orbs) and im trying to figure out how to stretch the link like a rubber band

I’m still unclear. What are being linked and what do expect to happen? Please go through the process. Is something being suspended in between.

The physics engine has a bunch of joints. Some sound close to what you’re saying. Have a browse through this. If one sounds like it would work. Someone should be able to help.

oh ok, its called joints. srry for the botched explaination, im still kinda new to the proper terminology, but the link you sent is perfect. this is exactly what i was looking for, thank you :ok_hand:
