[ODE] Res: Mushy Density?

Yesterday I've noticed something weird on this subject:
When I drop a capsule on a plane, the capsule fist 'sinks' a little, and then bounces and rests on the plane.

Maybe this is a CFM and ERP adjust problem?

I don't think it has anything to do with density but with the higher inertia 
forces that make harder to stop the bodies in less time. Try to lower the 
simulation step size.
