So I started working on a small RTS project and for that, I need to be able to select my Units.
I thought that I can create an Area2D with a Rectangle CollisionShape and then check if I'm overlapping with a Unit. For that, I need to resize and position the Area2D but I can't figure out on how to do it right.
Right now I achieved that the CollisionShape does change the Size when I drag, but not correct.
What I mean: Gif example
Green is how it should behave. Blue is how it does behave. Green is just a ColorRect which I got working by using
set_end(). Blue is the CollisionShape which I haven't got to work
My node Setup:
- Camera2D (Here is the script running)
- ColorRect ( The green thing that DOES work)
- Area2D (The thing that does NOT work)
- CollisionShape2D (Does not work)
My code right now for the Area2D:
export(NodePath) var selectionArea
selectionArea = get_node(selectionArea)
selectionCollisionShape = selectionArea.get_child(0)
selectionStart = get_global_mouse_position()
selectionArea.position = selectionStart
selectionEnd = get_global_mouse_position()
selectionCollisionShape.position = selectionEnd / 2
selectionCollisionShape.shape.extents = selectionEnd / 2
So how do I correctly resize and position the Collisionshape/Area2D?
