On the aegia demos it shows the ability to create a focus of gravity in one spot does anybody have any ideas on how to do this

My idea would be to go through every object and set its velocity to a certain point but i'm wondering if there are some commands for doing this.

I saw that demo and came to the same conclusion as you did.

I now think they were simply measuring the distance of dynamic objects from the focus point and then applying forces on those objects according the the square of distance rule. Using vectors would probably be the simplist way. There is a tutorial in one of the back issues of the magazines on vectors

In one way it is somewhat cheating but if you did create a mini black hole on the end of a stick the one thing most effected would be the player.
