Polygons + Inertia - Thanks BioSlayer and crashlander!

Sweet mother of physics,

I found the Vertices.CalculateMomentOfInertia() function by searching the forums and now my poly shapes are working!

Just wanted to give my thanks and make it a little more visible for newbies.

Yes, that is a helpful method. Thanks again BioSlayer.

I have some plans to add some new overloads to the Body and Geom Factories to more incorporate this method.

It could also be useful to include a function to center an object on its centroid (assuming constant density)

I have some functions to calculate the centroid and area if it would help.

Yes, that is also in the plan. There is a compute centroid method in the vertices object.
