Eleven. cease Play mode. 12. opt for the aircraft. thirteen. Right-click over the Mesh Renderer part and take away it. The aircraft is not any longer drawn within the online game view, however the Mesh Collider is drawn within the Scene view (see Figure 5-34). 172 Chapter five ■ Navigation and performance determine 5-34. The Plane’s Mesh Collider displaying now that the Mesh Renderer has been got rid of one other scan worthy making an attempt is to determine what occurs to the 1st individual Controller whilst the platform rises via it. 14. circulation the airplane so it really is within the course of the emerging platform. 15. click on Play and leap onto the platform. while the 1st individual Controller will get to the aircraft, it truly is driven down throughout the platform. it seems that, the 1st individual Controller is inheriting the circulation from the platform, and collision detection opposed to the airplane is registered. a last try out may well give you the ability for retaining the participant from leaping off a relocating platform. sixteen. Set the Z rotation of the airplane to ninety levels within the Inspector (see Figure 5-35). determine 5-35.
