HeightMapShape3D

Inherits: Shape3D < Resource < RefCounted < Object

Height map shape resource for 3D physics.

Description

Height map shape resource, which can be added to a PhysicsBody3D or Area3D. Heightmap collision is typically used for colliding with terrains. However, since heightmaps cannot store overhangs, collisions with other structures (such as buildings) must be done with other collision shapes such as ConcavePolygonShape3D. If needed, "holes" can be created in an HeightMapShape3D by assigning very low points (like -100000) in the desired area.

Performance: HeightMapShape3D is faster to check collisions against compared to ConcavePolygonShape3D, but it is slower than primitive collision shapes such as SphereShape3D or BoxShape3D.

Property Descriptions

PackedFloat32Array map_data = PackedFloat32Array(0, 0, 0, 0)

Height map data, pool array must be of map_width * map_depth size.


int map_depth = 2

  • void set_map_depth ( int value )

  • int get_map_depth ( )

Number of vertices in the depth of the height map. Changing this will resize the map_data.


int map_width = 2

  • void set_map_width ( int value )

  • int get_map_width ( )

Number of vertices in the width of the height map. Changing this will resize the map_data.
