I thought I did this on line 1, third one down as so:
'Drop Set Physics world gravity to worldGravity'
Unless I am missing something there or going the entirely wrong way about this based on what you just said?
The system - "on start of layout" event is performed on start of layout..
The layout only starts once and so the actions attached are only called once..
If you want the actions to be performed every tick, you use the system - "every tick" event..
But in your case you could call this action every time a drop is created, for at other times it would be of no use changing the gravity..
