Can I add lets say a small box shapes to each bone in the skeleton? That way it is still using a built in physics shape, but more accurate? Kind of like the ragdoll physics in Urho3D game engine?

The problem is that Bullet doesn’t like it when positions or velocities of RigidBodys are modified by other processes as this messes up the simulation, yet that is exactly what a skeletal animation does. Therefore one should think in terms of, what I would call, an overlay, and not direct attachment.
