I am using the raycasting code to determine if an object already exists at the given location:

When the virtual button is pressed a check is made and if the player hasn't spawned a new defence it is created at that location:

The issue I am having is even when a new defense is spawned it still returns that no object is there. If I increase the distance to .6 then it detects the floor as an object and no defenses can be created. Any ideas, I am totally stumped on this one.

make sure y (or any other coord) can't be "inside" an object or it won't get detected.


...mean's you have a whopping 0.5 world units' worth of a Ray. good luck with that

another thought: you are turning your object(s) collision on via SetObjectCollisionMode(), right?

the ray won't hit it/them, otherwise.

meanwhile, try to use more meaningful thread titles?

i've changed this one so it shows when others search for similar (which we should do before we ask the same questions over and over ).
