Talking Cheating to Get More Than 5 Force Inputs in Coupled Motion GMO

Stromboli is on a distinguished road
Hey Forum!

I've recently got my hands on Flow3dv10, and its pretty awesome. It's a huge step up from v9.

As the title of this post suggests, my CFD problem will require more than 5 force inputs in the coupled motion GMO. Has anyone found a way to get more force inputs?

I've tried editing the simulation file, following the same syntax as the other forces are defined but when the file was run, there's a syntax error. I'm currently trying to add multiple solid objects and building them in a way so that they stick together (you get 5 force inputs per componet), but I don't think this method will get me anywhere.

Any incite would be greatly appreciated.
