Following from Mike's lead, I think it would be good for people to post Material settings they have found to work well. For example, you may have a combination that replicates plastic, polished steel or rubber to perfection. I would start the ball rolling, but I haven't worked out the best material for a rolling ball yet

Maybe because they are all diffrent.

I did start a thread but the word Material got spelt wrong in the title.

so heres a re-post of them.
So to start these are some I have found going through the demos.
(Thanks to TGC Team for the ones they have made below.)

`'hardplastic' (fairly bouncy low friction rating)

`brick

make non-bouncy material

make material no bounce

Create a testball

make sticky

make hardrubber' (semi bouncy material high in friction)

make hardwood

make concrete

make a bouncy material very bouncy

make a less bouncy material

and finally a material with no bounce

make a material with null name

make glass

This might help in seeing what your material acts like.



edit
new improved version now has a launch trigger.


now with a sphere drop as well as roll.

Cheers , as a note change the mass and it will show up quicker what will happen.


If anyone could put a GUI thingy into it so you rise a lower the number on the objects, what ever you call them, then press space to see what happens

excellent idea to put the materials made from users and from TGC here
It may be cool to make a "material base" list with a sample that demonstrate the differencies between each materials.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
