Y so bouncy

The code below creates a simple static surface so that I can test controls however for some odd reason when the character gamestate is initated it bounces high off the floor even if i add

staticNode.setMateral(Material.CONCRETE) in the below class and a similar method in the charactertype class can anyone explain?

the floor and player probably intersect when the game is started

makes sense thx
