I have an object that is loaded and used as a visual object, and an object that is hidden, positioned in the same place of the visible object and used to handle collisions.
In this way I can instantiate the visible objects (they are models. X) and gain in speed Upload, instead of creating some copies.
Unfortunately, if the object used for the collisions is hidden, there is any collisions.
Is it normal or what?
I knew that even if I would delete the object used in SC_SetupObject, the collision remained.
In my case, the object still exists, it's just hidden.

Here some code.

Object used for collision.

That's odd... try hiding it after calling sc_setupObject?

Yep, same thing.

EDIT:
I found the real problem. It was not a problem of collision detection, but of the function dbPickObject. This does not work if an object is hidden. The only alternative I can think of is to make trasperente the object instead of hiding it, but so lose the advantage of using a hidden easier object for the collision. What do you say? There is no way to run dbPickObject with a hidden object? Alternative?

In attachment the situation with hidden object.

Thanks!

You can look for the implementation of dbPickObject in the source repository. After an hour of so of following cross references you should eventually find it
It is possible that you can extract part of the code and in doing so make your own version of the function which includes hidden objects.

I discarded the previous idea because the animations of the instances are synchronized. However, I will try to look the function's implementation just of curiosity.

Thanks for your support Rudolpho!
