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"

Can a collision Component have multiple collision profiles?

Lets say I had a projectile class. As a component of that class I had a sphere collision. Could I set that projectiles collision system (the sphere collision) to multiple collision profiles?

Example: with the same component myCollisionComponent->BodyInstance.SetCollisionProfileName("Projectile");

then myCollisionComponent->BodyInstance.SetCollisionProfileName("Enemy"); as well as myCollisionComponent->BodyInstance.SetCollisionProfileName("glass");

or would I have to have a separate component per collision profile?

Hi LostScout,

Looking at the documentation for the SetCollisionProfileName function, this will overwrite the previous collision settings. Therefore, I believe it is save to say that each collision component can have only one collision profile.

As a separate note, I've not attempted to have multiple collision components on the same actor, but traditionally there is usually only one per actor. I wonder if perhaps there is a simpler way to do what you want than using multiple components/profiles. Can I ask why you want to have multiple collision profiles on the same actor?
