Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding collision masks, part of iOS Game Development: Swift 2.0 and SpriteKit.
- In our ball shooting game prototype,…let's say we wanted the balls…to collide with these pegs here,…and the walls,…but we want it to go straight through this square.…In SpriteKit, it's easy to do that.…If you're wondering why you might want to do that,…maybe you have an invisible area…where the user maybe scores a point…if the ball goes through a certain spot,…like a basketball hoop or something,…where the ball may not necessarily collide with the net,…but once it goes through the net…you want to trigger a point.…
So that's maybe one of the cases that you might be using…this technique to make an object go through other objects.…So let's look at how that works in SpriteKit.…So on the screen I've added a couple of elements.…So I have these two pegs here, and a square.…Now when I click on the peg,…you'll see that I've added some physics properties,…so it has a Bounding circle, and it's static,…and I've set the Contact Mask to zero.…Now you actually don't have to do that…if you don't have the exercise files for now.…
