Alright, I want to make a map with invisible barriers. These barriers should stop vehicles and infantry, but not VTOLS, from passing through. How do I make these?

Well the TT collision tool have nothing to do with this..

The collison settings are only available in four settings, such as Physical (Player), Vehicle, Projectile and Camera... if you block vehicles it will also include blocking VTOL vehicles

So to make these barriers simply create a plane,box and set the collisions in the W3D Tools section and then check off the "Hide" box in the same section

I understand that. I also understand that TT implemented special collisions to get A Path Beyond's navy working and Reborn's Amphibious units working.. I want to know how to work with them.

It might be better if this was moved to the TT forums. Could a moderator do that?

Using the TT version of LevelEdit of course Wink

I think this is the right place for it, it's a "modding" question.

Everything in the game has a collision group. This group is used
to filter out collisions between objects before any other checks (including the W3D collision flags set via RenX). Here's a reference chart for all collision groups and what collisions they allow as of 4.0b5.



Alternate groups can only be applied to tiles and "scriptable" objects. For tiles, LevelEdit has two new fields under "Physics Model" labeled "Collision Group" and "Visibility Mode" which are pretty self-explanatory.

Scriptable objects are currently more complicated however. You need to attach a script called "SH_CustomCollisionGroup" and use one of these values to get the group you want. Any other values are treated as not colliding with anything. We'll eventually add the fields from tiles, but "SH_CustomCollisionGroup" will keep working.

Default = 0
Uncollideable = 1
Terrain Only = 2
Bullet = 3
Terrain and Bullet = 4
Bullet Only = 5
Soldier = 6
Soldier Ghost = 7
C4 = 8
Underground = 9
Soldier Only = 10
Soldier Bullet = 11
Terrain = 15
Water Surface = 16
Water Edge Block = 17
Water Edge Allow = 18
Beach Edge = 19
Naval Unit = 20
Beaching Unit = 21
Hover Unit = 22
Amphibious Unit = 23
Amphibious Unit Floor = 24

Well, I don't see "Air Units" but I could use this to make something close to that. I could set my air units to be "C4" and my boundaries to be "Water Edge Block" to get the results I want. Thanks for that saberhawk. You are really helpful.

Of course, the names are only really there because it's much easier to refer to something as "Water Edge Block" instead of "Collision Group 17".

No problem, this stuff needed better documentation anyways Wink

I created some basic documentation at the wiki HERE. You are welcome to improve it, because my knowledge is mediocre at best.
