 opacity

The if/else statement is correct. The resize to zero is the problem. Reaper was correct when he said the opacity method. You might need to play with your 1 meter as well. Remember that it is measured from the center of the vechile.

So below the if part goto the ring in the menu and click on properties and drag the opacity to the statement. Set it to 0. Another method is in the same place called "is showing" which when set to false is invisible also.

I think your way would definitely make it easy but the question comes that comes to mind is what if the plane was above the ring? Lol! Of course he wasn't asking that..but he needs a control statement for that. At any point I think your marker method is the best way to go about it cause it would eliminate where the rings center really is at.
