Collision information collected by collision events is too private.

    I was just wondering if it's possible to send the data gathered by the collision event to a public member variable. This seems like it would make for some pretty interesting solutions if done right. Has anyone ever attempted this? If so what were the results?

    Code (CSharp):
    1. public void OnCollisionEnter (Collision coll) {
    2.     // make coll data publically acessible  OR
    3.     // make coll data a singleton?
    4.     collData = coll.gameObject;
    5.    
    6.    // Not sure how to implement this...
    7. }

    Yeah can have a public variable of type Collision and just assign it, and any other object could access that data. What in particular are you trying to use the data for?

    If I understand it correctly. You are talking about using the "OnCollisionEnter" function publicly. I think instead you can make the CollData variable public and access it from anywhere. Or you can send CollData to another script.
