Hi I'm trying to get a tumble weed to 'tumble' in the wind. Problem is I can't get it to roll naturally. How does one go about rolling an irregular shaped object to roll on a service. Roll-it plugin does not work with R11-14 . I can only get a particle emitter to blow the weed across the floor plane, no rolling. Ideas?

depending on how detailed your tumbleweed is (geometry or texture based) you might want to use a simple thing like in the example file (but fitted to your tumbleweed) as a proxy for quicker calculation. Here is a simple test with a Wind object pushing a "tumbleweed" with enough friction in the ground and tumbler to make it roll instead of slide and with Rotational Mass set low enough it can do that easily.
