Hi guys,

So i needed to fix this issue. In order to do that i changed some code in Gazebo and installed it locally from source.

My dilema now is how can I use it. Using a launch file that spawns some robots, uses ros_control etc. I had all this working before but I needed to fix my simulation but I am having trouble moving forward with using the fresh version of Gazebo 7 i just installed.

Using ROS Kinetic, Ubuntu 16.0.4
