Hi there. I'm just starting out with Chipmunk, and I'm writing my code using the Python wrapper, Pymunk. So far the library looks amazing and is exactly what I was looking for.
I have a certain problem I'd be very grateful if anyone would help me solve.
Consider the following scenario: http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n110 ... nshot2.jpg
All of the shapes are perfect rectangles. The problem is that they never completely stand still. They seem as if to always move when in contact with one another (the bottom columns seem to always be motionless...), so if I leave that tower alone for a few minutes, most of the shapes (the columns) seem to drift towards the right and finally the whole structure collapses.
The infinite mass and inertia segment that holds the entire structure above it has a friction of 1.5 and an elasticity of 0. The rectangle shapes have the same attributes. I build the tower by adding objects to the space one by one, while the program is running. (For instance, I create a block above another one and it falls down on top of it.)
What am I doing wrong? I'd hate to be known as a George Costanza of the architect world.
