    I tried to do the tutorial 1 faithfully.
    The text is a little different to the video as well.

    Everything is OK except my character sinks 50% in to the ground as soon as it starts.
    If I set gravity Y to 0, it behaves (but no gravity).

    I can't see what I have changed to make the ground hollow.

    I started a new project with AFAIK the same settings and gravity works without the character sinking.

    I assume I've made some newbie mistake, but it's perplexing I can't find it.
    I wouldn't know how to achieve the error I have - LOL.

    The ground is static. I can't see why gravity could override that?

    My bdoc is attached.

    your collision shape is not in the right place
    set it to 0 on all axes
    check the attached image
    you can also edit it in the start node of the object, where it says Position

    THANK YOU @Tars Tarkas !
    I've no idea how that happened... I really thought I had only followed the text tutorial.

    Gravity is now restored and pina colladas are now staying in their glasses!

    Many thanks.
