Having Trouble with Physics

Post by celestialorb » Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:07 pm

I'm trying to make a simple physics simulation. Right now I just have a cube and a force field in my simulation. The force field is located at the origin and the cube is at a reasonable offset from it. My problem is I can't get the cube to interact with the field.

I'm sure the solution is something simple, but I've been stuck on this for hours. The cube is a rigid body and selected as an actor, has other default properties like a mass of 1, radius of 1, etc. The field is static, is an actor, has a strength of 65 (I was trying to just get it to do something), and is a point force. The power of the falloff is 0.

The cube still doesn't move when I hit P. What else do I need to do? If I turn on gravity the cube falls, so I think I don't have the force field set up correctly, or perhaps the cube isn't properly configured to interact with it?

Thanks for any help! :)
