Azaezel , please excuse me and my jibberish . I recently discovered the physic shape and rigid shape class stuffs . being very impressed I began searching for something to apply force in the same manner for the player character object or avatar or what have you . I couldn't find anything that worked then recalled the player server code from 1.2 that would  , as you correctly discerned despite my jibberish , applyImpule and simply effortlessly push whatever class of object right away with not the slightest stuttering of the programmic action , if you will . I added it to the player oncollision callback in 4.01 and it works so well . I just wondered if this or some other method is currently being resorted to . BTW I use the 4.01 binary .

this is the part of the oncollision function copied from 1.2 I think its original GG and was presented in the book by Kenneth C Finney 4D Game Programming All-In-One .

This works beautifully IMO and there is no problem here but , if there's a more modern approach I'd dig hearing about it . clear as mud? 🖍️       TY.

	if ((%col.getClassName() !$= "wheeledVehicle") || (%col.getClassName() !$= "item"))
	if (vectorLen(%col.getvelocity) <= 2.0) { 
 %pushForce = %obj.getDataBlock().pushForce;  // Try to push the object away
     if (!%pushForce){
       %pushForce = %obj.getdatablock().pushforce;
 %eye = %obj.getEyeVector();                   // Start with the shape's eye vector...
 %vec = vectorScale(%eye, %pushForce);
 %vec = vectorAdd(%vec,%obj.getVelocity());    // Add the shape's velocity
 %pos = %col.getPosition();                    // then push
 %vec    = getWords(%vec, 0, 1) @ " 0.0";
