Terrain Physics Heightfield Collider Component
The Terrain Physics Heightfield Collider component provides terrain data to the physics system in the form of a heightfield and material assignments. You can configure the dimensions of the collider by modifying the Axis Aligned Box Shape component on the same entity.
You can assign which materials are assigned to surfaces, by selecting a surface type in the surface pull down menu, then selecting a physics material type in the material pull down.
|Surface to Material Mappings||An array of surface tags and physics materials to map together.|
|Surface Tag||Selects a surface tag to map to a phsyics material.||Surface: Surface Tag||None|
|Material ID||Selects a physics material to apply to the surface.||Material: Physics Material||None|
