Default collision detection in myFirstMethod - 12-16-2015, 11:47 AM

version Alice3:

I had to put a while loop in myFirstMethod() in order for the collision detection functions to detect/work. makes sense now that i think about it...keeps looping/scanning for collision events...right?

New problem: counter variable keeps incrementing b/c each collision is counted multiple times b/c its in a while loop. fixed this by moving object away so it doesnt multiple detect collision. is there a way to delete or remove an object from a running program upon collision? ie pirate ship collides w/ iceberg so iceberg is deleted/removed.

thx for any feedback.
Mike

Sink it below the surface. You can't collide with it if it's out of reach.

There is no Destroy method, but you can use the SetActive method to turn it off. It will not collide then.

A better approach might be to use an event rather than an infinite while loop.
