  • Hi,

    I want to check if an object is overlapping a circular area around another object. How can I go about doing this? I tried using "is overlapping at offset" but I am getting inconsistent results. (Maybe I don't know the right equation?) I don't want to use an invisible sprite as I have multiple objects that need to be checked.

    Basically if an object comes in a circular proximity of another object, I want to the first object to do something. Is using line of sight a way to do this?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • I guess you could use distance(object.x,object.y,object2.x,object2.y)

    This would calculate the distance between imagepoint0 of object1 and imagepoint0 of object2

    if this distance is less than 100, object2 would be within a circle of 100 px around the center of object1

  • Thank you! It was super simple. just never thought of it this way!
