Using LW 2015 I have set up an asteroid belt around a star. The asteroid belt is a series of one-point particles. What I have been trying to accomplish is the effect of those particles adhering to a rock as it passes by on its orbit around the star. The particles in the asteroid best are to be swept up by the rock which eventually becomes a planet. The animation is supposed to simulate the formation of a solar system. So far I have been unable to produce any of the results I am looking for using the dynamics and particle tabs in LW. Can anyone help out with this situation?

Examine "Flocking" and Attractors.

you could use bullets forces and negative forces as well, there´s a tutorial on youtube for that, but that means not using particles.
