Description

Description:
Disable collision between provided objects. The collision is always disabled for both objects in the arguments.
  • this command does not disable collision between PhysX objects
  • this command has to be executed where objects are local, and as long as they do not change locality, the effect of this command will be global:
    • if the two objects are not local to the same computer, then it has to be executed on both computers to achieve the desired effect
    • if one or both objects change locality, the command needs to be executed again on the new owner's machine(s) to maintain the effect
  • the feature works by having an object registering a reference to the other object; this command stores such reference on both objects - see Example 3

Examples

Example 1:
player disableCollisionWith myWall;
Example 2:
[_veh1, _veh2] remoteExecCall ["disableCollisionWith", 0, _veh1];
Example 3:
// this command stores a reference to the other object on both arguments: _obj1 disableCollisionWith _obj2; // _obj1 has a reference to _obj2, disabling collision with it // _obj2 has a reference to _obj1, disabling collision with it // only one reference is required to disable collision, allowing more than one disabled collision _obj1 disableCollisionWith _obj3; // _obj1 has a reference to _obj3, disabling collision with it // _obj2 has a reference to _obj1, disabling collision with it // _obj3 has a reference to _obj1, disabling collision with it // factually, _obj1 has collisions disabled with _obj2 and _obj3 // note that _obj1 collision can be changed without using the command on it directly _obj2 disableCollisionWith _obj3; // _obj1 has no more reference to _obj3 and can collide with it // _obj2 has a reference to _obj3, disabling collision with it // _obj3 has a reference to _obj2, disabling collision with it

disableCollisionWith is basically a script that when you apply it to an object, and your unit can go through it like a ghost. However, if you wish the object to be solid again, you may wish to use enableCollisionWith.
An example for this is:
// name of unit in editor such as player1 // name of object in editor such as barrel1 barrel1 disableCollisionWith player1; // to make the barrel solid again, do this as vice versa if you know what you are doing! barrel1 enableCollisionWith player1;
On a side note: this can come in handy a lot if you want a unit to sit on the back of a car or on top of a container

This command does not disable the roadway LOD.
