What exactly does the “shape” parameter for force fields do? It has an option for “every point” which suggests the force field would be placed at the weighted center of the mesh or something similar, but even with the option selected the force field still acts as a point source, so it’s clearly doing something else (if anything at all).
Also, am I correct in assuming that rigid bodies are treated as point masses in force fields? I made this assumption because I’m can’t observe any rotation that should be there if the bodies were handled as a distributed mass.
I’m running Blender 2.69.
