Set furniture as "no collision"

Post by Ecuadorian » Wed May 02, 2012 1:05 am

This feature is, for me, the missing link to make the LightUp web player shine when gravity and collision are turned on. As it is now, you step up on furniture. :shock:

Possible implementation:
Select component/group > right click > LightUp > No collision.

Good suggestion.

Alternatively, we could add what is called a "step threshold" often used in interactive apps. The idea is that you don't allow the viewer to jump up large steps just small ones. So going up stairs is fine, jumping on the dining table is not.

Sounds easier for the end user.
However, walking around a room full of furniture would feel contrived.
