You use a mesh.
A mesh face is a one-sided object, if you go around to the other side of it, it isn't there.
Two mesh faces back to back look like a very skinny bzw box or meshbox.

To make the one-way-door/wall, either:
• Just have one mesh face. Tanks can go through one firection but not the other.
• Have two mesh faces and make one drivethrough/passable. This means that you see the wall from both sides but can drive through one side.
• Just have one mesh face infront of a meshbox. Make the meshbox passable. The advantage of this method is that it can look more like a normal box to players. This could also be achieved by making a box mesh rather than just one or two face(s)...

You can make meshes in a text editor like Mac's TextEdit, but I wouldn't recommend this. Try some 3D Modelling software like Wings3D or Blender.

you would need to set that attributes on a per face basis, so you'd want a real mesh, where you have per face controls.

yes you have to make a mesh, with the faces in the shape you want.

NO you can not do it on a box. it must be a mesh, since you have to set the options on each face. You do not have control over the settings of each face on a box.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.
