Bungie Rope: set sprite size based on elasticity?

Get help using Construct 2

Hi all,

I am playing around with Physics at the moment and trying to build something like a bungie rope.

This is what I made so far and works quite well:

The rope parts do stick together as they should (added Physics revolute joints) and the elasticity is doing the rest, but one thing I can't find a solution is to set the size of the middle part of the rope that the rope looks like it is not cut into three separate parts.

What I tried was, is to set the size of the middle part every tick, but what I can't find is an indication of the force that works on the elasticity.

I do hope, that someone has an idea how to get around that?

Many thanks in advance

It breaks the physics sim if you change the size of a physics object. Use another non-physics object to cover the gap.
