Transformation and Common Parameters
Transformation and common parameters are available on the Node tab of the Parameters window. These parameters are common for all types of nodes and always available for editing.
The topmost section of the Parameters windows includes common node description:
- Enabled flag toggles the node on and off. If unchecked, the node will not be rendered.
- Name — the name of the node.
- Type — the type of the node, it defines the set of node-specific parameters.
- ID — the ID of the node.
|Position||Specifies the position coordinates for the node.|
|Rotation||Specifies the rotation coordinates for the node.|
Specifies the scale factor for X, Y, and Z axes.
Don't scale meshes that are going to participate in collision detection — physics doesn't work properly with scaled objects. To avoid scaling, reimport the mesh with the required scale.
The parameters can be set to default values by clicking right next to the fields with values.
You can also copy and paste position, rotation, or scale as well as all transformation parameters together using the following context menu displayed by clicking right next to the fields with values.
|Triggers Interaction||Enables interaction of the node with World Triggers.|
|Clutter Interaction||Enables interaction of the node (Object or Decal) with World Clutters and Mesh Clutters. This option enables cutting out clutter objects in the areas of intersection with an Object or a Decal (e.g., can be used to remove vegetation under houses or from the surface of roads projected using decals).
It is recommended to disable this option for better performance, when cutting node out of clutters is not necessary. Especially when the world contains a significant number of such nodes.
|Immovable||Defines if the node is moved to a separate spatial tree for immovable (static) objects optimizing node management. Using this parameter can improve performance. This flag is enabled by default.
There are several restrictions on nodes considered immovable. Any action affecting the spatial tree is prohibited and causes a warning: you cannot change the node state (enabled/disabled), surfaces, bounds, trasformation, visibility distance, as well as move the node, assign a non-dummy physical body or even disable the Immovable flag as it also leads to rebiulding of the spatial tree.
You can disable these warnings via the world_moving_immovable_node_mode console command, if necessary.
|Culled by Occlusion Query||Enables occlusion query for the objects. The objects are tested whether their bounding boxes are seen. It allows reducing the number of rendered triangles, which is beneficial by using heavy shaders. This option provides the substantial performance gain when enabled for water or meshes with reflections.
Enable this option only for a few nodes that use heavy shaders; otherwise, the performance will decrease instead of increasing.
Culling will be performed if the hardware occlusion query test is enabled for the scene (the Rendering -> Features -> Additional Hardware Occlusion Culling flag is set).
|Grass Interaction||Enables interaction of the node (Object or Decal) with Grass. This option enables cutting out Grass in the areas of intersection with an Object or a Decal (e.g., can be used to remove vegetation under houses or from the surface of roads projected using decals).
It is recommended to disable this option for better performance, when cutting node out of grass is not necessary. Especially when the world contains a significant number of such nodes.
