That makes sense, however, I would still consider this a bug because it doesn't clear the falling status.

I'm having this problem also. It seems that the code has a bug so that when the acceleration is to high it actually freezes all the joints.

This issue has been raised as a critical task, yet, there has been no time-line given on when it will be fixed.

But this is without any other models in the world. Can you do the same with graphic-intense models and other items in the world?

If I have a cluster of computers that are already setup to run as a Cloud, can I use CloudSim on that cluster? Or is there any plans to release CloudSim to support any cluster of computers?

If it is possible, what do I have to install to run CloudSim and Gazebo over my own cluster?

Still a problem that adding most of the lighting to the scene to reduce the dark side effect. The camera jpeg images do not reflect the current scene's lighting changes.

2013-01-15 13:20:51 -0600 asked a question Lighting and Shadow Effect Problems.

I'm trying to get rid of any shadow effects in Gazebo and DRCSim-1.3.1. I understand the sun causes most of the shadows and is explained here. When I uncheck "cast shadows" in the Scene, the shadow is removed from the ground. However, when I try to uncheck "shadows" for the sun or any model. The shadows are not removed from the model at all.

I also tried to place more lighting around the model to reduce the effect of the shadows. Sometimes the shadows are removed, and sometimes they are not. However, when I use the simple camera model explained here. The captured images do not reflect the current scene.

Is there anyway to ensure models do not cast shadows on themselves and the world?
