Detecting Collision

I can't seem to find a viable way to detect if any part of the metal wall, or the other doodads for that matter, is in a region for my map Tron. I've tried making a "Metal Wall" unit, but you can only detect the small radius at the center of the wall. Ex. ====O==== = is the wall, O is the unit detection area. Anyone have any ideas how to detect any part of the wall?



None.

Use locations, as I'm pretty sure you can do non-square locations now with the map editor. Just make a long location that sits right on top of, or under your wall.

What Shredder said would work, otherwise you would have to make a single unit for each 1x1 area that you want to be collided with.

Yea, that's essentially what I was trying to avoid.

I suppose I'll try out Shredder's idea then. Thanks!

What?! no! Just use the No-Pathing Doodads... Much simpler!

Well actually, that wouldn't quite accomplish my goal. The intention was to detect if something was in front of the vehicle with triggers, and not actually block the path of the vehicle.

Anyway.... I've closed up shop with this map.

On a side note, don't use the no-pathing doodads, go to your pathing layer (H), and use the brush to lay down the red no-pathing stuff.
