does anyone know if it's possible to add a Dynamics Tag (specifically Rigid Body Dynamic Tag in this case) to an object using COFFEE. I haven't been able to find one jot of info regarding this, so I'm fearing it's pie in the sky.

Create a Rigid body tag on any object, Create a COFFEE Tag, use this to find the ID of the Rigid body tag (of course you can do this with any tag, object, material etc.) :
The id of the tag is then printed into the c4d console window (Windows->Console). You can then use that ID for creating this tag.
If you want to modify the settings, go into the Cinema 4D resource folder (on your HD) Cinema4D/modules/Dynamics/res/description/
and look up the IDs in the according tags description file (for rigid body tag for example "rbdtag.h").

you're a star. That's a real insight for me - critical information, it seems, if you're to have a chance at exploiting COFFEE.
Which brings me to...
I've had a good look around, and I've purchased The Coffee Book, and I'm referring to the 9.5 SDK but it seems there's a real absence of a definitive COFFEE guide - i.e something similar to the incredibly thorough Actionscript documentation that comes included with Flash.
Anyway, I'll have a crack at adding a dynamics tag as you describe, but I've a feeling I'll be back!
