FIG 7.40 Creating a flagpole and flag.
Step 3. Select the Cloth in the Hierarchy and locate the Interactive
Cloth component. Set the Size of the Attached Colliders to 1 and drag
and drop the cube object (which is the flagpole) onto the Collider
value (see Figure 7.40 ).
Step 4. Set the Interactive Cloth component's value for External
Acceleration and Random Acceleration to a vector parallel with the
flag. In the given example, in Figure 7.40 , this is ( - 10,0,0).
