I tried some larger grids of masses with my simulation system.  It of
course takes much longer, several hours on an Athlon 1 GHz.

ball_sim10.mpg shows what happens if you decrease the connection stiffness
too much.  The grid is not self stabilizing under extreme deformations. 
Adding 3d diagonal connections might help, but this would slow down
calculations even more.
