Sorry for late reply I'm still very busy currently with my thesis.
A very nice screenshot. You have made some "mark" on the spheres, it
looks nice ;)
As a remember currently if both objects have isDynamic==false, their
interactions are not calculated. It should be obvious to write it
that way. Maybe the simulation is slower not because of interaction
between them, but because there is simply a bigger number of
But I can't check it now. If you can wait till april, then I'll be
able to help you :)
