[Sidefx-houdini-list] cloth sim possibilities

Hello all,

We're trying to get a piece of cloth to drop down and gather at rest  
on the floor.
Kind of like a sheet coming loose from a clothesline and settling on  
the ground.

The main problem is that it intersects with itself a lot when it  
gathers on the ground plane and begins to settle.
Self collision seemed to be the obvious answer but when that is  
turned on the whole sim jumps and bounces around a lot ......... even  
before it hits the ground plane, but much more then.
Kind of interesting, but not what we're after.

I'm wondering if we're missing some key settings somewhere ..........  
or if it's just a bit to ambitious to expect this to settle on the  
ground without the surface intersecting.

As always, thanks in advance for any thoughts.
