Correct me if I'm wrong, the "power" of the joint ( in this case I'm
thinking of a ball joint ) depends on the mass of the two objects
connected by a joint. I assume that the force pulling the objects
towards each other, if they're pulled apart by an exterior force, is a
product including the mass of the two objects.
I have gone through some of the ode code, and I haven't located that
part that does this yes, haven't had time to look at the solveLCD function.
I have experimented with setting the global cfm and erp using ball
joints, but haven't been able to get the rope stable when there's a
heavy load in it. Thoo if I increase the size of the segments in the
rope, it becomes stable.
