[ODE] Scalability?

Why don't you throw 100,000 sphere geoms into a large hash space, run 
dSpaceCollide, and find out for yourself?

In general, I think you'll find > 100,000 colliding entities in real 
time to be somewhat of a challenge, even in broad-phase only. There are 
tricks you can play, though, such as not colliding asteroids with each 
other if no player is close enough to see them.
