# Makeshift Force field?

## Recommended Posts

Evening, so I am trying to make a energy/force field in one of my missions. Helper spheres look promising and scaling them and covering something with them looks nice aswell. However, they do not have collision. Anyone have any other ideas  how to archieve simular effects?

I thought the same thing, but how will I know how to scale it? Or make it semi visible.
Its a force shield. So I would probably spawn a sphere as cosmetic thing, and surround the area at the borders by invisible walls. But I do not know to what size to scale it if I cant see it

It's 2x2x4 meters.

Setting its scale value to "2" makes it 4x4x8 meters.

You were never told there would be no math. 🙂

Does not help when you have no idea how big in meters is the thing you are "protecting"

Use boundingBoxReal to determine size of object first, then calculate how big invisible wall should be.

So figure it out. There are multiple ways to do it. @johnnyboy provided one above.

The floor grid of the VR terrain is marked out in 2 meter squares, so there's an easy way to at least get workable measurements.
