Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How I detect collision between two actors (not player)

I have been trying to create a top down 2d space shooter and so far it has been going really well. I have stars and asteroids traveling down the screen, the players is able to move and shoot but I'm having issues when it comes to collision detection.

To simplify things, imagine I have 3 assets; a player spaceship, an enemy spaceship and a projectile.

My player is currently able to collide with both the enemy ship and the projectile but I cannot for the life of me make the enemy spaceship and the projectile detect each other.

My reasons behind using a 3d collision box is a little complicated but it is needed for future game plans. I absolutely 100% sure that the collision boxes are definitely passing straight through each other.

The enemy spaceship is currently stationary and the projectile isn't traveling at ridiculous speeds (it's actually a pretty slow rocket).

I have used "BlockAll" for testing purposes, this will change later (I have tried many other collision presets but none seem to make a difference - as they currently effect the player I believe that they should effect each other too).

I am also pretty new to this engine so please try to explain any suggestions thoroughly.

I would greatly appreciate any help... I have been troubleshooting and researching solutions for the last 5 hours but I am completely at a loss here.
