hideObject and hideObjectGlobal disable object collision in addition to rendering. A3 1.45.131175 (tested by hiding buildings and running through, driving through, flying through, and shooting through where the building used to be)

As of A3 1,62.134494 running hideObjectGlobal in big loop may cause some objects not to be hidden for a players already connected or passed JIP. To avoid players rendering desync consider running that in preInit schedule of a server.

In A3 1.72.142342 when you hide object via hideObjectGlobal, model sounds still be audible. For e.g. if you delete apex house from map, you still hear a conditioner sound at this spot

Eventhandlers such as "explosion" will work on hidden objects
