teleporter on mesh surface

Post by big_daddy2 » Thu May 28, 2009 9:25 pm

hi, i made a teleporter on a mesh at 130.5 Z but when i try to go through the sending teleporter on the ground i cannot go though, i kno its because of the mesh surface blocking the teleporter but what do i do to solve it? i already tried to change the elevation by small incraments but it wont work...

Try adding inside points to your mesh.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

the problem is i cannot add inside points because this teleporter leads inside the mesh not on the outside, would i add an outside point then?

you can't do that.
this should work....
make six thin walls where the outside of your box is, leaving the inside empty.

you cant put a teleporter inside a solid object.
you need to make the outer surfaces of your mesh into solid objects, leaving the interior hollow.
make a hole in your donut.

I dont know what you are trying to do. Post the relevant bzw code if you're still having problems.
