I am looking to push the 2D physics in Unity to the extent where when so much is going on that there becomes noticeable lag in a game. This is for testing purposes, so that when so much is going on that a button can be pressed to reduce the amount of physics objects on screen then see what affect that has. So in my small 2D demo I have placed alot of barrels on the map, all of which have physics on them, player bumps into them and they move. I have went to the extent of placing alot of them on the map (864 to be exact), bumping into them I still don't see any effect on the gameplay. Other things I have tried, besides adding alot in, is increasing the mass of the barrels, changing their linear and angluar drag and making them bouncy.
Is there anything I can do besides adding alot more in? Thanks!
