Default Lost on Boat Obstacle Course Exercise. - 12-05-2014, 10:23 AM

Hey everyone,
I'm lost on how to make the toruses sink under water when the boat gets near them in the chapter 7 "Boat Obstacle Coure". I have set them to drop 10 meters, but for some reason they do it before the boat gets close to them. Basically, the world starts and all toruses sink. I set up a loop, a While, a Do together in various combos, but I just can't figure out how to make them disappear when the boat approaches.

After this, I still have to figure out how to make the score change. I'm feeling like this is something simple and i'm overthinking it.

Thanks for the help.

By the sounds of it, you have your method to drop your obstacles activate when you start the world instead of using a logic statement with a threshold. you'll need to have an event "while the world is running" a method in the "during" slot that uses an if statement saying if the boat is within certain distance of obstacle, have obstacle move down

If you are stuck on a project, check out the tutorials I made here at this link:

There are lots of tutorials on it so far, including some youtube videos, check it out
