Setting collideSet depending on which object collided

Postby Jimmio92 » Sat Feb 27, 2010 12:10 pm

Hello all,
I'm making a simple circle spawn type engine, and I'm trying to add multiple pistons to one cylinder.. and attempting to change the spawned circle's collideSet depending on which object collided.

The "spark plug" object's onCollide is:
Code: Select all
(e)=>{
    Scene.addCircle({         radius = 0.1;         pos = e.pos;         collideSet := e.collideSet + 4     })}


Theoretically, this should set the spawned object's collideSet to the value of the piston, plus group C, C being the killer of the object. What am I doing wrong here? The circle is only getting group A.

Thanks,
Jimmio

Code: Select all
(e)=>{Scene.addCircle({         radius := 0.1;         pos := e.pos;         collideSet := e.other.collideSet + 4})}


You forgot to type "other".

using just "e.something" addresses the command to the object the code is on while, e.other addresses the other object
