I use sketchup 8 pro, and my os is windows 7 64 bit. I'm new to sketchup but have gone through a lot of tutorials and have and a grasp on most general functions in sketchup. I downloaded and installed Sketchy Physics today and I tried a basic function creating a rectangle with the SP tools (which makes it a group) and then pressed play to manual move the object around but it just moved the object straight down in the blue axis direction. Is there something I have to set? not sure what is going on.
This is my first post so sorry if it is in the wrong place or not written well.
One thing I didnt notice before is that when clicking on play it says that sketchy Physics 3.2 is required and that point all grouped object move down in blue axis when pressing play and continue move down until using reset.
I try about 4 different sites that said the the version was 3.2 but when installing it it said the it is really version 3.1. Does anyone have a link to 3.2 that is actually 3.2?
I'm attaching a sketchup file that I saved down to version 6. This file only contains one rectangle I would like to have any users that have Sketchy Physics installed to just open the file hit play and see if the object moves down in blue axis? I think that it is maybe incompatablity with Sketchup 8 pro and my version of Sketchy Physics or possible something specific to my software or computer.

I believe you need to build a ground plane or "solid" (meaning closed-faced volume, but not necessarily a true solid) to keep your objects from sinking due to "gravity". I do not use SP, so I am not sure of some of the terms, but the ground plane "attributes" may have to be "static". Then, your rectilinear object should rest on the ground, unless you grab it or push it or elevate it. There are others here who use SP, who can answer your questions better. I just thought you needed at least a reply, and maybe my comment can help you along.
EDIT: Have you checked some of the tutorials on YouTube?--and I mean some of the basic ones. A couple of them are both informing and amusing.
I take the slow, deliberate approach in my aimless wandering.
Thanks for you response mitcorp and you are correct I had to create a solid floor in the beginning with the create a solid floor tool. I had watched a couple youtube videos and I re-watch them and one actual went over this step. Wow I feel like an idiot I total over looked this step ! I will be watching more videos and learning this plugin it is a lot of fun to mess around with.
