Resize geom @ runtime

Hi everybody!

Iam trying to change the size auf a geom by creating a new AABB. But this has no effect to the geom.
So i thought, just delete the geom and create a new with the new sizes. Now i got the problem to set force, velocity....e.g. to the new geom. Is there a simple way to just resize a geom???

Btw, is there any chance to create a ragdoll with Farseer???

Thx a lot


PS. Sorry for my bad english ;)
PPS i am using XNA 2.0

I haven't come across a situation where I need to swap geometries yet, but I'd imagine that's all you need to do. As long as you keep the original Body object, it should retain its velocity, position, etc.

Ragdolls are just rigidbodies held together with joints. I'm working on something that uses ragdolls. (Only not so limp.)

If you don't mind installing Silverlight 1.1 alpha, I have a small demo here:

It's the "Throwing People: A Farseer Physics Demo" one.

For some unknown reason I can't install Silverlight. So, can't have a look at the demo.
I want to do the same: change or resize the geom. Can you post how it works in here?

Thank you very much.
