Ah, so I basically got that one right. ;)

You're always giving me ideas for new stuff to read. So little time

Just to really get this into my head: If I use a mass-id of "2" in an
"out"-message like "out 1 0 2 0.3" , what will come out of the outlet

1) the position of a mass (or all masses) created with id==2 as in
"mass 2 m0 x0" or

2) the pos. of the mass created as the second mass in the system or

3) the pos. of the mass created as the third mass?

This is no problem. I'm actually just playing around with these
objects to get a feel for them, some cool sounds and maybe some ideas
for improvement. Thanks for providing them!
