As I mentioned, I can do a lot of this basic stuff really fast for you. It's a fun exercise for me plus that brings you onto the right track in no time.
I'll gladly take you up on that offer. Is it possible to document what you do somehow (via video, written or whatever)? Or is it stuff that can be picked up fairly easily from just reading through it? I just want to know how to do it so I can do the process myself next time.
Also, when you said to attach all the non-functioning things to the fuselage, is it fine to have multiple materials per object? For example the Fuselage might have the exterior, interior shell, instrument panel etc etc. EDIT: I think I misunderstood, correct me if I'm wrong but you meant that they should be attached in the Fuselage Geometry List, not attached to the Fuselage itself.
Also, is there anyway to visualise the contact points and/or any of the RigidBodies?
