I need to create some tumbleweeds and I was wondering if I could get some tips? I'm not sure I have a good enough handle on the physics of PI to create convincing motion. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Jon

I think the key would be to give it a pretty high velocity, and a bit of Weight, but also to increase the Bounce factor by a bit. That way it'll bounce up by itself if you use a Deflector as the ground object.

I'll see if I can post an example emitter a little later. Seems like a fun effect to try, and a good reason to sing the Tumbling Tumbleweeds song over and over.

Thanks I'll give it a try, I didn't even think of adding a ground object.
