An obstacle capsule is a capsule-shaped obstacle that is detected and bypassed by other objects during pathfinding. The obstacle capsule can be added, for example, for the capsule-shaped nodes (trunks, columns, chimney shafts and so on) that are placed inside a navigation area and should be bypassed.
The obstacle capsule is set by radius and height, where:
- radius is the radius of the cylinder and hemispheres of the capsule.
- height is the height of the cylinder of the capsule.
Adding Obstacle Capsule
To add a capsule obstacle to the scene via UnigineEditor:
- Run UnigineEditor.
- On the Menu bar, click Create -> Path -> Obstacle Capsule.
- Click somewhere in the world to place the obstacle.
Editing Obstacle Capsule
On the Obstacle Capsule tab of the Parameters window, you can adjust the following parameters of the obstacle box:
|Obstacle Mask||Obstacle mask. The obstacle mask of the obstacle capsule must match the obstacle mask of the route that is calculated during pathfinding. Otherwise, the obstacle will not be taken into account during pathfinding. Also by using the obstacle mask, you can specify obstacle spheres that should be ignored during pathfinding.|
|Radius||Radius of the obstacle capsule in units.|
|Height||Height of the obstacle capsule in units.|
