alright, im sorry for the weird title and im pretty new here, but i had a question that might seem obvious but im still working on it. so im making a game thats pretty open map, you can walk freely and interact freely - but the problem begins with the character's head smacking the top of the object its trying to pass (meaning that when he collides with it to start with, his movement is supposed to stop)
for example, if i had a rock i wanted my character to walk around, id walk down to go around it, but CANT fully walk around it until the top of my character's head is cleared. meaning that my character is somehow bumping his head on a rock on the ground. it seems like hes laying DOWN on the map. (my game is NOT in side-scroller style, so i think that might be why?)
(if i need to attach pics or anything just let me know, i know this probably sounds confusing 8( )
now ive tried numerous tricks, like setting boundaries higher up so he gets closer to walls or setting the hotspot down to the lowest-centered point - neither work. still head smacking
HOW do i fix this, does anyone know??
weird methods ive tried: making two active objects with movement, and making the collision relative to the smaller active object at his feet so that THAT active object gets stopped instead of him bumping his head which DOES work, but is a bit sloppy and not to mention glitchy
is there a way to make the smaller active object's movement relative to my player so that it follows him around then? or is there a better way to make him.. "stand up"?
once again i know this probably sounds hilarious but im stumped
