Don't know if it's the version I'm using or something else I'm doing wrong but the mass always comes out as 1... I have compute mass turned on and an rbdsolver attached, anything else I might be missing?

/obj/dopnet1:rbdobject1/Position/Options/mass can be converted to volume.

Make sure you plug that to a solver to get the result calculated.
