    Default Trying to create pyramid using a for loop

    pyramid.jpg


    Can someone help me write a for loop for creating a pyramid starting on the platform with the bottom line consisting of 10 boxes then 8 then 6 and so on. I have attempted making the first row but when i run the program the boxes all split up and fall over.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I don't see any code, and asking us to debug a grainy screenshot is pretty lazy. Copy and paste your code here, in a way that we can compile and run it, and we'll go from there.

    However, it's hard to answer general "how do I do this" type questions other than to point you to google. What have you tried to build more bases on top of your first one?

    Asking us to debug a grainy screenshot is pretty lazy. Copy and paste your code here, in a way that we can compile and run it, and we'll go from there.

    Also, this seems to be a question for a specific framework (Box2D?), so you might want to ask your instructor about this.

    You can try to post your code here, but Box2D is actually a C++ (or maybe C?) library that is wrapped by Java. I would maybe guess that you're accidentally spawning your boxes on top of each other, which causes them to bounce off of each other.
