    I have an object that I only want to be affected by gravity. I just want it to drop straight down when there is nothing underneath it. I applied a rigidbody. Here are my settings:

    The problem is that the object is still affected by outside forces. I do not want anything to affect the object except gravity. How do I fix it? Thanks

    For what you're trying to achieve you're using a dynamic body but trying to turn all its features off. You're far better off using a kinematic body and applying "gravity" yourself which is really just modifying the Y position by the global gravity vector. The kinematic body will never be affected by external forces and you have full control.
