Default Need help with collisions

hi again, next question...

i have a bunch of bricks to fall down the floor. i dont want the bricks to self-colide, but i want them to colide with the ground plane. bricks are active with gravity, plane is passive.

how can i do it?

thanks

you could put every brick on a different collision layer and the ground plane on collision layer 0 (zero).

this would do the trick...

well, technically you can.

you could do some test assignments.

e.g. marquee every third brick and put them onto one layer. if they collide, select every fourth brick and put them onto one layer.
