Friendly fire, collisions turned off?
« on: December 22, 2022, 01:18:17 PM »

I don't know if they removed friendly fire and collisions or if I accidentally turned them off but I miss it. Can anyone tell me if this is a setting somewhere? Or if it's modded, the command that disables it so I can search for it in my installed mods.

Like, you fire an assault chaingun into your allies hull and nothing happens?
That's definitely not something that happens normally.

Found the problem. I was using some ships I made and I forgot toee set collision radius. I thought the "bounds" attribute determined hits. Now I'm not sure what "bounds" is used for. At least collisions are back.

bounds are the specific hitbox of the ship, the collision radius is used for preliminary collision checks (so stuff only tries to collide with stuff it's near) & iirc some AI pathfinding stuff

AKA bounds outside the collision radius cannot be hit.
