Air resistance on the faces of a softbodies mesh rather than verts, and a force to preserve mesh volume
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

This patch adds code to softbodies which causes the media friction to be applied based on the surface normal of each face of a softbody mesh, rather than at the verts. As a result, you can simulate realistic fluttering and parachuting motion of falling cloth (whereas in the previous version it would simply fall straight down). Also added is a related 'pressure force' which causes a mesh to maintain its volume (prevents crumpling). Both of these can be switched on with an added button in the softbody interface, and a slider has been added for the stiffness of the volume-preserving force.

It may be desireable to modify the placement of the 'pressure' button before inclusion.
