Description

Constant: integer PRIM_MATERIAL = 2;

The integer constant PRIM_MATERIAL has the value 2

Sets the prim material. Material does not affect mass, but does affect friction, bounce (elasticity), and collision sound. On a wood incline of 33 degrees, the example script below gave the following results:

Table detailing maximum velocity and distance traveled down the incline.
Type Velocity (m/s) Distance (m)
Stone 0.453181 0.361655
Metal 5.475444 10.211180
Glass 6.483150 11.678304
Wood 2.154549 9.433724
Flesh 0.351543 0.188043
Plastic 4.502428 9.590952
Rubber 0.374964 0.187106
