ODE bounce

How do you set the material properties of objects in ODE?
I’m looking to change how much a object bounces, ie is it soft or hard, is this possible?

ODE supports only rigid bodies. I believe (not having read much about it so far at all, except from browsing {http://opende.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Manual_(Joint_Types_and_Functions)|the manual} that it will not simulate springs. Have you played around with the desity pin of the primtives? It should give a similar effect (walting-on-the-moon kind of relaxation towards gravity)

I believe the vvvv implementation of the ODE still lacks the “Joints” which would do the trick to simulate chains, cloth etc.

Somebody of the gurus correct me?


Im not looking for soft body, just more or less bouncy really!
