Class: World

Phaser.Physics.Matter. World

The Matter World class is responsible for managing one single instance of a Matter Physics World for Phaser.

Access this via this.matter.world from within a Scene.

This class creates a Matter JS World Composite along with the Matter JS Engine during instantiation. It also handles delta timing, bounds, body and constraint creation and debug drawing.

If you wish to access the Matter JS World object directly, see the localWorld property. If you wish to access the Matter Engine directly, see the engine property.

This class is an Event Emitter and will proxy all Matter JS events, as they are received.


new World(scene, config)

Parameters:
Name Type Description
scene Phaser.Scene

autoUpdate :boolean

Automatically call Engine.update every time the game steps. If you disable this then you are responsible for calling World.step directly from your game. If you call set60Hz or set30Hz then autoUpdate is reset to true.

Type:
  • boolean
Since: 3.4.0
Default Value:
  • true
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 198)

correction :number

The correction argument is an optional Number that specifies the time correction factor to apply to the update. This can help improve the accuracy of the simulation in cases where delta is changing between updates. The value of correction is defined as delta / lastDelta, i.e. the percentage change of delta over the last step. Therefore the value is always 1 (no correction) when delta is constant (or when no correction is desired, which is the default). See the paper on Time Corrected Verlet for more information.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.4.0
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 113)

debugConfig :Phaser.Types.Physics.Matter.MatterDebugConfig

The debug configuration object.

The values stored in this object are read from the Matter World Config debug property.

When a new Body or Constraint is added to the World, they are given the values stored in this object, unless they have their own render object set that will override them.

Note that while you can modify the values of properties in this object at run-time, it will not change any of the Matter objects already added. It will only impact objects newly added to the world, or one that is removed and then re-added at a later time.

Since: 3.22.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 231)

debugGraphic :Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics

An instance of the Graphics object the debug bodies are drawn to, if enabled.

Type:
Since: 3.0.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 222)

drawDebug :boolean

A flag that controls if the debug graphics will be drawn to or not.

Type:
  • boolean
Since: 3.0.0
Default Value:
  • false
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 212)

enabled :boolean

A flag that toggles if the world is enabled or not.

Type:
  • boolean
Since: 3.0.0
Default Value:
  • true
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 103)

engine :MatterJS.Engine

An instance of the MatterJS Engine.

Type:
  • MatterJS.Engine
Since: 3.0.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 65)

getDelta :function

This function is called every time the core game loop steps, which is bound to the Request Animation Frame frequency unless otherwise modified.

The function is passed two values: time and delta, both of which come from the game step values.

It must return a number. This number is used as the delta value passed to Matter.Engine.update.

You can override this function with your own to define your own timestep.

If you need to update the Engine multiple times in a single game step then call World.update as many times as required. Each call will trigger the getDelta function. If you wish to have full control over when the Engine updates then see the property autoUpdate.

You can also adjust the number of iterations that Engine.update performs. Use the Scene Matter Physics config object to set the following properties:

positionIterations (defaults to 6) velocityIterations (defaults to 4) constraintIterations (defaults to 2)

Adjusting these values can help performance in certain situations, depending on the physics requirements of your game.

The color used when rendering this constraints anchors. If null it will use the World Debug Config value.

anchorSize number <optional>

The size of the anchor circle, if this constraint has anchors. If null it will use the World Debug Config value.

Since: 3.22.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 483)
Returns:

This Matter World instance for method chaining.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Matter.World

setEventsProxy()

This internal method acts as a proxy between all of the Matter JS events and then re-emits them via this class.

Since: 3.0.0

setGravity( [x] [, y] [, scale])

Sets the worlds gravity to the values given.

Gravity effects all bodies in the world, unless they have the ignoreGravity flag set.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number <optional>
0

The world gravity x component.

y number <optional>
1

The world gravity y component.

scale number <optional>
0.001

The gravity scale factor.

Since: 3.0.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 847)
Returns:

This Matter World object.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Matter.World

shutdown()

Will remove all Matter physics event listeners and clear the matter physics world, engine and any debug graphics, if any.

step( [delta] [, correction])

Manually advances the physics simulation by one iteration.

You can optionally pass in the delta and correction values to be used by Engine.update. If undefined they use the Matter defaults of 60Hz and no correction.

Calling step directly bypasses any checks of enabled or autoUpdate.

It also ignores any custom getDelta functions, as you should be passing the delta value in to this call.

You can adjust the number of iterations that Engine.update performs internally. Use the Scene Matter Physics config object to set the following properties:

positionIterations (defaults to 6) velocityIterations (defaults to 4) constraintIterations (defaults to 2)

Adjusting these values can help performance in certain situations, depending on the physics requirements of your game.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
delta number <optional>
16.666

The delta value.

correction number <optional>
1

Optional delta correction value.

update(time, delta)

The internal update method. This is called automatically by the parent Scene.

Moves the simulation forward in time by delta ms. Uses World.correction value as an optional number that specifies the time correction factor to apply to the update. This can help improve the accuracy of the simulation in cases where delta is changing between updates. The value of correction is defined as delta / lastDelta, i.e. the percentage change of delta over the last step. Therefore the value is always 1 (no correction) when delta is constant (or when no correction is desired, which is the default). See the paper on Time Corrected Verlet for more information.

Triggers beforeUpdate and afterUpdate events. Triggers collisionStart, collisionActive and collisionEnd events.

If the World is paused, update is still run, but exits early and does not update the Matter Engine.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
time number

The current time. Either a High Resolution Timer value if it comes from Request Animation Frame, or Date.now if using SetTimeout.

delta number

The delta time in ms since the last frame. This is a smoothed and capped value based on the FPS rate.

update30Hz()

Runs the Matter Engine.update at a fixed timestep of 30Hz.

Since: 3.4.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 1226)
Returns:

The delta value to be passed to Engine.update.

Type
number

update60Hz()

Runs the Matter Engine.update at a fixed timestep of 60Hz.

Since: 3.4.0
Source: src/physics/matter-js/World.js (Line 1213)
Returns:

The delta value to be passed to Engine.update.

updateWall(add [, position] [, x] [, y] [, width] [, height])

Updates the 4 rectangle bodies that were created, if setBounds was set in the Matter config, to use the new positions and sizes. This method is usually only called internally via the setBounds method.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
add boolean

true if the walls are being added or updated, false to remove them from the world.

position string <optional>

Either left, right, top or bottom. Only optional if add is false.

x number <optional>

The horizontal position to place the walls at. Only optional if add is false.

y number <optional>

The vertical position to place the walls at. Only optional if add is false.

width number <optional>

The width of the walls, in pixels. Only optional if add is false.

height number <optional>

The height of the walls, in pixels. Only optional if add is false.
