Im in the process of making a custom physics system, this physics system responds to weight and will indicate “stress” on parts, when their stress is great enough, the part will break.

however I am having some issues with it, the plan is to have it look something like this:

the brighter areas indicate the least amount of stress, the brick surface is the “anchor point” were the most stability originates. from there parts that stack will check if they are being supported by something below them and adjust their stability accordingly, if theres nothing below them like the parts hanging on the left, they get the stability from surrrounding parts and change their stability to that number.

but I found that something is causing the stability to stack, if there is enough parts they will all start to accumulate stability and will overload each other, I don’t want this I just want parts to lose stability as they get further from a stable point (and no I cant use magnitude they have to use the stability from surrounding parts).

heres the script so far:

```
local strength = 50
function changestability(result,touching,part)
if result ~= nil and result.Name == "PhysicsAnchor" then
part.Stability.Value = strength
elseif result ~= nil and result.Name ~= "PhysicsAnchor" and result:FindFirstChild("Stability") then
local totalstrength = 0
for _, p in pairs(part:GetConnectedParts(false)) do
local s = p.Stability.Value
if s > 0 then
totalstrength = totalstrength + s
end
end
local convert = totalstrength * .325
part.Stability.Value = convert
elseif result == nil then
local totalstrength = 0
for _, p in pairs(part:GetConnectedParts(false)) do
local s = p.Stability.Value
if s > 0 then
totalstrength = totalstrength + s
end
end
local convert = totalstrength * .125
part.Stability.Value = convert
end
end
function stabilitycheck(part)
local y = part.Size.Y * .5 + 0.5
local ray = Ray.new(part.Position,Vector3.new(0,-y,0))
local raypart = workspace:FindPartOnRay(ray)
local filteredparts = {}
local parts = part:GetTouchingParts()
for _, p in next, parts do
if p:IsA("BasePart") and p.Anchored == false then
table.insert(filteredparts,p)
end
end
return raypart,filteredparts
end
while true do
wait()
local c = script.Parent:GetChildren()
for i = 1, #c do
if c[i]:IsA("BasePart") and c[i]:FindFirstChild("Stability") then
if c[i].Stability.Value <= 0 then
c[i].Color = Color3.fromRGB(255,255,255)
elseif c[i].Stability.Value > 0 then
local colconvert = 5 * c[i].Stability.Value
if colconvert > 255 then
colconvert = 255
end
c[i].Color = Color3.fromRGB(colconvert,0,0)
end
local check,touching = stabilitycheck(c[i])
changestability(check,touching,c[i])
end
end
end
```
