View Full Version : Lamp problem

5th Dec 2008, 1:06 PM
Hi everybody.

I wanted to create a floor lamp from a hangind lamp. Unfortunately, in game, after buying the lamp, when I put it somewhere, I'm not able to take it in order to put it in other place. The hand just ignore the lamp.

Anybody can help me to fix that, please ?

You have to change the Bounding Mesh.
In GMDC and 'Plugin view', open the tab called 'Model', you will find 'Clear' (in blue) against Bounding Mesh Control-Vertices.
Just click on it and this will clean the box.
Now in the tab called 'Groups' just click on the part you want to handle in game (sometimes surface or wood, ....) and click on 'Add to Bounding Mesh' (in blue too)
Now 'Commit' and check it out in game.

Oops, an other problem :s.

As the lamp was originaly a hanging lamp, it go through the others objects.

You need to change the object placement I think it is in the BHAVs - if you post it I will have a look
