Lilypad floating and bobbing in water

you could indeed do that.
Try just adding the softbody at first though, It automatically adds a bouncing effect (that I hate and have a hard time getting rid of :slight_smile: )

You may also play with just adding a wave modifier to the lily pad.

Is collisions on for the plane?

I suppose the physics might not take into account the wave modifier of rosme reason…

You might just want to animate it by hand and make a cycle so you can just have it loop

ah see, thanks for the tip, i shall try this.

i wondered what everyone else normally does, for eg. with Cogs sea, how do you get a boat to float around on that without sinking?
