I have a c++, sfml program and upon trying to implement multi threading have ran into a problem. First off I have little experience with multi threading. When I go to assign the thread tasks it is throwing 22 new errors all relating to objects being const but the objects are not const. Thanks. sorry if the title is poorly worded.

here's some code to look over

class NewKey {
public:
    sf::Image Img;
    sf::Texture Tex;
    sf::Sprite Sprite;
    sf::Vector2i Velocity;
    sf::Vector2i Acceleration;
    sf::Vector2i NextPos;
    bool isMovingLeft() {
        if (Velocity.x < 0)
            return true;
        else
            return false;
    }
    bool isMovingRight() {
        if (Velocity.x > 0)
            return true;
        else
            return false;
    }
    void velocityCap() {
        if (Velocity.x >= 130)
            Velocity.x = 130;
        if (Velocity.y >= 130)
            Velocity.y = 130;
        if (Velocity.x <= -130)
            Velocity.x = -130;
        if (Velocity.y <= -130)
            Velocity.y = -130;
    }
    void loseSpeed(int x) {
        if (isMovingLeft()) {
            Acceleration.x += x;
        }
        else if (isMovingRight())
            Acceleration.x -= x;;
    }
    void StepVelocity() {
        Velocity += Acceleration;
        Acceleration = sf::Vector2i(0, 0);
    }
};

void foo() {
    NewKey Key;
    std::thread thread1;
    std::unique_ptr <sf::RenderWindow> window = std::make_unique<sf::RenderWindow>(sf::VideoMode(100, 100, 32), "Main Window", sf::Style::None);
    Key.NextPos = Gravity(Key, window, thread1);
    thread1.join();
}

sf::Vector2i Gravity(NewKey& Key, std::unique_ptr <sf::RenderWindow>& window, std::thread& thread1) {
    int windSpeed = 2;
    int dropRate = 10;
    thread1 = std::thread([=] {
        if (Key.Velocity.x == 1)
            Key.loseSpeed(1);
        else
            Key.loseSpeed(windSpeed);
        Key.StepVelocity();
        Key.velocityCap();
        if (Key.Velocity.y < 10 && Key.Velocity.y > 0) {
            Key.Velocity.y = 0;
        }
        });
    sf::Vector2i Result = sf::Vector2i(window->getPosition() + Key.Velocity);
    return Result;
}

int main()
{
    foo();
}
