Help - my character walks through sheets!
Uh, I made a chainlink fence in my map by using a sheet and then applying a texture.

My character walks right through the fence like nothing is there. How do I make the fence so it is solid and the player will not walk right through???

I will assume this is for UT2003 which would mean you need a BlockingVolume. Create a brush that fills the area you want to block off, then go to Volumes and click add BlockingVolume. that will prevent your character from walking through the chainlink fence.

i personally hate blocking volumes (with a vengence), but in this instance I would say use a blocking volume or if you cant, u could possibly try converting the sheet into a solid. To do this select the fence mesh in wireview and rightclick and it'll be something like "convert-to -> solid".

I can't test that theory.. because I'm not at home.. But I think it might work.. gl.

Do BlockingVolumes reduce a maps BSP? I.E., would a blocking volume that surrounds a complex object reduce the BSP for the enclosed area, or is it just there to block actors?
