Drop is the downward motion of tetrominos in Tetris games, and other games that use falling pieces. There are three different types of drops in Tetris, gravity drop, soft drop, and instant drops.

Gravity can be thought of as an automatic drop. It moves a tetromino downward into the playfield at a regular rate, which may change depending on the difficulty level, or progress in the game.

Some games move the falling tetromino down the display by a distance of one block every so often; others move it continuously by units smaller than a block. If a tetromino cannot move down any further, it locks into place immediately, or after a short delay. Older games cannot move the tetromino down more than one cell per frame 60 cells per second.

Newer games, especially those capable of a ghost piececan do so; play at such speeds requires a lock delay. The term 20G was coined by the developer of Tetris The Grand Master to refer to a speed of 20 cells per frame, which produces the effect of a tetromino instantly falling onto the stack as soon as it appears in the playfield. Gravity, especially recursive gravity, can also refer to the downward motion of large groups of blocks on the playfield after a line clear. Many games allow the player to temporarily increase the gravity by holding down a key, most often Down on the directional pad or joystick.

Soft dropping a tetromino generally makes it falls at around 20 to 60 blocks per second, as fast as or faster than DAS. Some games will lock a soft-dropped piece as soon as it lands; others, especially Tetris Guideline based, do not lock instantly. Hard drop is an action that forces the piece land lands and lock instantly. Games that use the Tetris Guideline are required to include hard dropping.

Sonic drop works similarly, but does not lock the piece instantly. Sonic dropping is mainly found in the TGM seriesthough other games use it as well instead of hard drop. It enables a fast way to fill overhangs using the Zangi-move. Gravity Gravity can be thought of as an automatic drop. ARS uses locking soft drop. SRS uses non-locking soft drop.

It was written by Dennis Lehane and is based on his short story Animal Rescue. Its story follows Bob Saginowski, a bartender who becomes entangled in an investigation after the mob ran bar that he works at was robbed. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was released theatrically on September 12, Bob Saginowsky Tom Hardy is a bartender at a neighborhood bar in Brooklyn. Marvin Stipler James Gandolfini ceded ownership of the bar years earlier to Chechen mobsters and now operates it with Bob as a 'drop' for illegal takings.

Marv ridicules Bob and some patrons for commemorating the 10th anniversary of the murder of a man named Richie Whelan. On his way home, Bob finds a battered pit bull pup abandoned in a household garbage can. While rescuing it, he meets Nadia Noomi Rapacea resident of the house. Bob leaves the dog in her care until he can decide whether to adopt him. When the bar is robbed by two masked gunmen, Marv is annoyed that Bob told investigating Detective Torres John Ortiz about one of the gunmen wearing a broken watch.

Torres has seen Bob before at the church they have both attended regularly for some time. He is intrigued by Bob's reluctance to take Holy Communion. Though this is not said explicitly, Torres would understand this to mean Bob is in a state of mortal sin for which he has not confessed.

Chechen thug Chovka Michael Aronov later threatens Marv and Bob and tells them that they must make up for the stolen money. Marv later meets with one of the perpetrators, Fitz James Frechevillerevealing that he orchestrated the robbery. Bob decides to keep the dog and names him Roccoall the while bonding with Nadia, who agrees to care for the dog whenever Bob tends to the bar. Nadia has scars on her neck that she reveals are self-inflicted from when she used to have a drug problem.

Deeds later appears at Bob's house and provides proof that he is the actual owner and admits to beating and abandoning him. He demands Rocco be returned before he raises the matter with the police. Later, Bob and Marv find a bag at the bar, containing a severed arm with a broken watch together with the stolen money. Bob is unnerved when Deeds appears in the bar and reveals he is friends with Nadia.

Marv informs Bob that Deeds is a dangerous thug who claims to have killed Richie Whelan. When Bob confronts Nadia, she admits that she and Deeds used to date.Drop refers to downward motion of each tetromino in Tetris games and other games that use falling pieces.

This page was last modified on 27 Septemberat Different than the former loot drops, they can and will be damaged by waves of Corrupted Creatures spawning around the Supply Drop. To secure the valuable contents of the Orbital Supply Drop, the survivor must fight off waves of corrupted enemies, the amount of which varies depending on the level of the drop.

The Orbital Supply Drops occasionally fall from the sky and land in various areas in the Wasteland outside the city on Extinction. There are 4 different types of OSDs, each one varying in difficulty, health, and potential rewards. An OSD defense mission is initiated by simply approaching it, which will cause a force-field to spawn around it, beginning the first wave.

This force-field will protect the OSD from the waves of corrupted creatures, but will shrink as it absorbs damage.

Prince Rupert's drop

Once it is destroyed, it cannot be brought back, and the OSD will become susceptible to damage. Alternatively, the player can choose to prematurely deactivate the shield if they wish by walking up to the OSD and choosing the "deactivate shield" option. However, keep in mind that deactivating the shield is an irreversible option and it cannot be brought back once it has been turned off.

Once the defense mission has been initiated, the OSD can be approached at any point or looked at with a Spyglass to see its remaining health, what wave is currently active, how many waves until the defense mission is complete, and how many hostiles are remaining in the current wave. Once all the enemies in a wave are killed, the next wave will begin after a few seconds, signified by a musical cue.

Once all the waves are completed, a musical cue will play and the message "OSD defense complete! At this point, the player may simply walk up to the OSD and select the new "Eject Items" option to receive their rewards. Keep in mind that the items are dispensed directly onto the floor, so be sure to pick everything up before they de-spawn. The OSD itself will disappear a few seconds after all of its items have been dispensed. If the player fails an OSD defense mission, the OSD will be destroyed, disappearing in a similar fashion to the supply crates on the other maps and blasting back all nearby entities.

This blast does not cause damage, but can potentially cause fall damage if you are blasted off a ledge. Additionally, if the OSD is allowed to unrender, all players leave the area the defense mission will be terminated, causing the OSD and the wave of enemies to disappear. If you plan on doing an OSD defense mission solo, be sure to bring everything you need with you to the fight so this can be avoided.

Blue, Yellow, and Red OSDs require 6 waves to complete, consisting of a preliminary "wave 0" and followed by 5 normal waves. Purple OSDs the hardest difficulty require 8 waves to complete.Prince Rupert's drops also known as Dutch or Batavian tears [1] [2] are toughened glass beads created by dripping molten glass into cold water, which causes it to solidify into a tadpole -shaped droplet with a long, thin tail.

These droplets are characterized internally by very high residual stresseswhich give rise to counter-intuitive properties, such as the ability to withstand a blow from a hammer or a bullet on the bulbous end without breaking, while exhibiting explosive disintegration if the tail end is even slightly damaged. In nature, similar structures are produced under certain conditions in volcanic lava and are known as Pele's tears. The drops are named after Prince Rupert of the Rhinewho brought them to England inalthough they were reportedly being produced in the Netherlands earlier in the 17th century and had probably been known to glassmakers for much longer.

They were studied as scientific curiosities by the Royal Society and the unravelling of the principles of their unusual properties probably led to the development of the process for the production of toughened glass, patented in Research carried out in the 20th and 21st centuries shed further light on the reasons for the drops' contradictory properties.

Prince Rupert's drops are produced by dropping molten glass drops into cold water. The water rapidly cools and solidifies the glass from the outside inward.

This thermal quenching may be described using a simplified model of a rapidly cooled sphere. This is perhaps why this curious property of the drops remained unexplained for centuries. The high fracture toughness due to residual compressive stresses makes Prince Rupert's drops one of the earliest examples of toughened glass. Most of the early scientific study of the drops was performed at the Royal Society. The drops are reliably reported to have been made in Mecklenburg in North Germany, as early as The Dutch scientist Constantijn Huygens asked Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle to investigate the properties of the drops; her opinion after carrying out experiments was that a small amount of volatile liquid was trapped inside.

Although Prince Rupert did not discover the drops, he played a role in their history by bringing them to Britain in He gave them to King Charles IIwho in turn delivered them in to the Royal Society which had been created the previous year for scientific study. Several early publications from the Royal Society give accounts of the drops and describe experiments performed.

A fuller understanding of crack propagation had to wait until the work of A. Griffith in InSrinivasan Chandrasekar, an engineering professor at Purdue Universityand Munawar Chaudhri, head of the materials group at the University of Cambridgeused high-speed framing photography to observe the drop-shattering process and concluded that while the surface of the drops experiences highly compressive stresses, the inside experiences high tension forces, creating a state of unequal equilibrium which can easily be disturbed by breaking the tail.

However, this left the question of how the stresses are distributed throughout a Prince Rupert's drop. In a further study published inthe team collaborated with Hillar Aben, a professor at Tallinn University of Technology in Estonia using a transmission polariscope to measure the optical retardation of light from a red LED as it travelled through the glass drop, and used the data to construct the stress distribution throughout the drop.

This gives the surface a high fracture strength which means that it is necessary to create a crack that enters the interior tension zone in order to break the droplet. As cracks on the surface tend to grow parallel to the surface, they cannot enter the tension zone but a disturbance in the tail allows cracks to enter the tension zone. The process for the production of toughened glass by quenching was probably inspired by the study of the drops, as it was patented in England by Parisian Francois Barthelemy Alfred Royer de la Bastie, injust one year after V.

De Luynes had published accounts of his experiments with them. It has been known since at least the 19th century that formations similar to Prince Rupert's drops are produced under certain conditions in volcanic lava. Because of their use as a party piece, Prince Rupert's drops became widely known in the late 17th century—far more than today.

It can be seen that educated people or those in "society" were expected to be familiar with them, from their use in the literature of the day. Samuel Butler used them as a metaphor in his poem Hudibras in[17] [18] and Pepys refers to them in his diary. The drops were immortalized in a verse of the anonymous Ballad of Gresham College :.
