    Question particle attraction

    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?

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