I have a bounding sphere and a bounding box that should be intersecting, however, Intersects(...) is returning false. For example, the following returns false:

new BoundingSphere(new Vector3(500, 105, 0), 25).Intersects(
    new BoundingBox(new Vector3(466,219,0), new Vector3(519,26,0))

According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.xna.framework.boundingbox.boundingbox.aspx

The constructor of BoundingBox expects minimum and maximum points. Your second vector's y is less than your first vector's y. This might break the intersection test.

    \$\begingroup\$ No might about it. It will break it and that is the problem. Good answer. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ True enough. That was it. A silly issue, and the one I haven't noticed because I still think of y as going towards the bottom. Thanks. \$\endgroup\$
