Regular API function


Description Creates a heightfield shape. See also simCreatePureShape, simCreateMeshShape and simAddParticleObject.
C synopsis simInt simCreateHeightfieldShape(simInt options,simFloat shadingAngle,simInt xPointCount,simInt yPointCount,simFloat xSize,const simFloat* heights)
C parameters
options: bit-coded options:
bit 0 set (1): back faces are culled
bit 1 set (2): overlay mesh is visible
bit 2 set (4): a simple shape is generated instead of a heightfield
bit 3 set (8): the heightfield is not respondable
shadingAngle: the shading angle
xPointCount/yPointCount: the number of rows and lines of the heightfield.
xSize: the length of the x side of the heightfield
heights: a pointer to xPointCount*yPointCount height values.
C return value
-1 if operation was not successful, otherwise the handle of the newly created shape
Lua synopsis number objectHandle=simCreateHeightfieldShape(number options,number shadingAngle,number xPointCount,number yPointCount,number xSize,table heights)
Lua parameters
Same as C-function
