dMassTranslate does the right thing to the inertia tensor in the mass
description. The only problem is that the body doesn't pay attention to
a non-zero delta off the origin. Now that we have "easy" geom offset
matrices, perhaps we should re-enable dMassTranslate, and add some
documentation about how you're supposed to offset the geoms to
compensate for off-center mass.
> Next the mass translate issue:
> [ 1661685 ] dMassTranslate not working (V0.8)
> You stated in the tracker that the dMassTranslate function name is
> misleading. If that's the case then the official user guide is also
> misleading in its description of the function... "Given mass
> parameters for some object, adjust them to represent the object
> displaced by (x,y,z) relative to the body frame."
> Previous builds allowed the use of this function, but V0.8+ doesn't
> allow any values other than 0,0,0.
