I have a script that will create new GameObjects and will place it where the mouse is placed on the terrain. Now I need to have a check for collision on other already placed GameObjects on the field.

I check different tutorials and documentation and cannot find a way to do this in code.

My code looks like:

objectToPlace = (GameObject)AssetDatabase.LoadAssetAtPath("Assets/Game/3D Models/Buildings/" + objectName + ".fbx", typeof(GameObject));
objectToPlace.transform.localScale = new Vector3(1, 1, 1);
objectToPlace = Instantiate(objectToPlace);

objectToPlace.transform.Rotate(Vector3.right * 90);

BoxCollider collider = (BoxCollider)objectToPlace.AddComponent(typeof(BoxCollider));
collider.isTrigger = true;

In the same class as the above code I have OnTriggerEnter function. But that function is not called. How can I link the Collider to that function in Unity 5.6?

I also tried using the Physics.CheckBox for checking if my new create gameObject does not collide to any other object. But without any succes.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I didn't confidered using Physics.Checkbox before. Can you give a small example of using that. When I check for collisions using if (!Physics.CheckBox(objectToPlace.GetComponent<BoxCollider>().center, objectToPlace.GetComponent<BoxCollider>().size/2)) I always getting false \$\endgroup\$ – JimmyD Jun 5 '17 at 5:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ For now the default values \$\endgroup\$ – JimmyD Jun 5 '17 at 5:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ When I check also for triggers nothing happend when the two objects collide. Physics.CheckBox(objectToPlace.GetComponent<BoxCollider>().center, objectToPlace.GetComponent<BoxCollider>().size, objectToPlace.transform.rotation, objectToPlace.layer, QueryTriggerInteraction.Collide) \$\endgroup\$ – JimmyD Jun 5 '17 at 5:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ What is the best sollution to fix this? \$\endgroup\$ – JimmyD Jun 5 '17 at 5:55

I created a custom class for the collision detection with the OnTriggerExit, OnTriggerStay and OnTriggerEnter funtions. Also in my class where I place my models I added:
