XSI Rigid Body Dynamics

This building is made of 3400 Rigid Body objects. The guns are spring loaded without requiring an animation key. This was the largest number of objects that I was able to fit into a scene before it would crash. The computer was a single proc Dell and the render time was 30 minutes.
This design was featured in my tutorial debut in XSI 5 the Official Guide from Anthony Rossano. Anthony was gracious enough to allow me to create a tutorial that can be found in the last chapter of the guide.
This animation is also featured at the XSI Community Wiki fun with physX where three other Rigid Body studys of mine have also been posted. Thank you very much to Steve Caron for puting it there.
