collision detection
hello, how can I import my own buildings with collision detection? I tried to import a 3ds max file into my level and inside the level I
could just walk through it, I made a physics things for it in the mesh editor and made sure that was selected in the
world editor but I could still walk straight through it in the game. Am I supposed to draw the red path things around it or what?
I tried the level with them and without them and I could still walk through the building. I used the camera modes tutorial to test the level am I supposed to
have some extra code for collision detection? a bit confused :?

Re: collision detection
think you should set it to a static object in the world editor, and use the static obj base!
also remember to add a memory container for static objects!

as far as i know, the physics thingy, detects static stuff as solid :/

Re: collision detection
thanks a lot, I used a base mesh and it works now, btw do you know whats a good metric unit to export my 3ds max models as?
they always come out looking too big in the world editor.

Re: collision detection
after importing meshes into Mesh Editor you can use the shortcut "Ctrl+C" (Menu\Mesh\Transform\Rescale Height To 1)
this will transform the mesh to fit in just before the camera
after that you can manually rescale the object (remember that units are in meters)
