Say you have an object "holder"
And then you have a dozen say "insects" that are all children of "holder"
Imagine the insects are all perhaps moving along at different velocities in different directions.
No problem BUT ... say you actually do NOT want the Insects to be children "in terms of physics"
In the situation I describe, if you for example rotate or move "holder" then, all the insects' paths will twist, they will move collectively etc.
Of course, you could just make each Insect simply NOT a child of Holder.
But it's convenient to be able to, say, eliminate them all at once, etc etc, as you can do of course if they are all the child of holder.
So I'm trying to make sort of "independent" children of Holder! heh. Every parents' dream
Am I forgetting something obvious, is there a way to perhaps "group" the Insects with no physics relationship, basically use the parent/child relationship with everything except the physics chain.
Any ideas, thanks ?!!
But do you actually need to do anything? If you have a empty gameobject as the parent, then nothing will move it except a script. Thus if you don't move it from a script you shouldn't have anything to worry about? or am I mistaken?
