I'm posting this in the hope that someone with more experience in such things can suggest a better way to go about making a chain with "lifelike" dynamics.

In my attempt, I created a spline, with spline dynamics and put it within an Atom Array to make it appear like the chain I was going for.

I'd like to also be able to move the "cap" end and have the chain move with it in a real-world type of way, not sure theres an easy way to do this.
