[Bepu2] Moving platform

Hello, I'm trying to create moving platforms than can carry objects, the problem is that it looks like the platform is made of ice. It has the default FrictionCoefficient of 1. At bepu 1 if both the payload and the platform had friction 1 they will move in parallel.
Friction 1

If I increase the friction to 5. I moves with the platform but the carried object starts rotating.
Friction 5.

Is there a way to have the same behavior of bepu 1, that if you set the friction to 1, and you start moving the platform the carried object start moving in place, with out acceleration?

Two things likely happening:
1) v1 split friction into kinetic versus static. Static tended to be higher, so unmoving objects (relative to the support) slid less.
2) v1 arbitrarily boosted inertia tensors by default, making them less prone to rolling.

So what you are observing is expected behavior. If you want stickier/less easily rolled behavior, use a higher friction coefficient and scale down the inverse inertia tensor.

Thanks for the help
