* tried to replicate the bullet standalone behaviour in brlcad, for that starting with getting the correct normals, started hardcoding them in the processCollision function from the simulationalgo.cpp file; last time the normals we got were (0,0,-1) we need (0, 0, 1) since the normals are from the ground plane to the cube and we want to replicate the standalone; it didn't work cause after hardcoding them we get only the first contact point, after that first contact point we don't get any more contacts between the 2 bodies which is obv wrong since the cube still falls through the gp
 
* when the first contact is being processed then no more contacts are being added, but the cube is obv falling downwards since the depth grows
 
* then tried to change the normals from the raytracing part, simrt.c file, the traverse_zray_lists() where we set up the sim_manifold strucure; it didn't work for the same reasons as before
 
* the problem is that bullet keeps an array of manifolds and points for those manifolds, the m_manifoldPtr a pointer to this array (processCollision() function in the mged files and in the standalone bullet simulation) it gets cleared and updated every step;
 
* last year student implemented its own structures for manifolds, never using the ones provided by bullet the sim_manifold struct in simulate.h; the difference is that in our processCollision function we work on 2 different structures, the bullet structure and our structure but bullet never gets the info from our structure past the first contact
 
 
TO DO : change all the sim_manifold struct uses with the native bullet manifold structure or find a way for our particular structure to be compatible with bullet's structure
 
  
 
TO DO : find a way to pick 4 points out of the 36 generated that cover the maximum area of the object
