I am making a wheat field that uses cloth physics to help each stalk move realistically with the wind. However before I convert the particle system, I need to look for the best numbers to plug into the properties of the cloth physics to ensure that the grass stays upright and springy. I have tried setting the tension and compression to 10,000, but it still bends sharply around the upper segments of the wheat stalk.
The hairs for the wheat also still seem to flail around like the strands of a mop. Is it possible to add specific nodes to the tension/compression properties to make these two areas stronger? If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
The images below are of the numbers I plugged into the Cloth Physics.
