How does a fluid, or at least something semi-solid like toothpaste react when subjected to pressure? - It will move away, if pressured from two sides the resultant move will tend to be more or less perpendicular to the force. Therefore this is a type of PerpendicularMovement
. Also related (but perpendicular) to AntiGravityMovement
The way to do it is like adding together force-vectors, each with a direction and a size, to get a resultant "force" or movement.
- Choose which direction you would like to go. Represent this as a vector.
- For each "thing" that you want to stay perpendicular to, add a force-vector in one of the two possible perpendicular directions. It might be a good idea to choose the one that gives the longest resultant == most harmonious or most fluid result (less opposition of forces).
- The final resultant is the direction you will now move in.
The trick is now to assign good force-sizes to reflect the importance of being more perpendicular to some objects (nearby objects, perhaps?) than others. See also ShrapnelDodging
