In game-design, animating doors is often handled in the same way as other animations. But this make the doors quite static, with only a limited range of motions (generally just "open" and "close"). Using Hinge Joints in Unity makes doors much more realistic, with dynamic swinging, breakable hinges and spring-based physics. In this one-hour, project-based course, you'll learn how to apply Hinge Joints to doors and other articulated objects in your game. You'll configure spring, motor and rotation-limit properties and explore how they interact with other physics-based objects in your game. The guided project will introduce you to the following Unity concepts: -Hinge Joint -Fixed Joint -Rigidbody -Basic coding techniques including Triggers
