This member cannot be used in scripts, but is usable in the command bar.
This property determines whether physics throttling is enabled.
Historically this function could be used by plugins. However, for security reasons this has been changed and now it can only be used by developers in the command bar.
Note, currently physics throttling will always stay enabled regardless if this function is used or not.
What is physics throttling?
Physics throttling occurs when the physics engine detects it cannot keep up with the game in realtime. When physics is being throttled, it will update less frequently causing
BasePart|BaseParts to appear to move slower.
Without throttling, the physics simulation would fall further behind out of sync with the game. Without physics throttling, users experience lower frame rates.
Objects associated with
Humanoid|Humanoids are exempt from physics throttling.
Developers can use
Workspace/GetPhysicsThrottling to determine the degree to which physics is being throttled.
Demonstrating physics throttling
Developers should always avoid creating places that overload the physics engine, as it leads to sub-par experience for players. Those wishing to simulate physics throttling for research purposes however, need only create a lot of
Parts very quickly.
local i = 0 while true do i = i + 1 if i % 5 == 0 then wait() end local part = Instance.new("Part", workspace) end
Whether or not physics throttling is enabled.
