I have somewhat complex characters in a game I am working on. (They are dinosaurs so they range from bipeds to quadrupeds both with and without tails). I require multiple colliders on my characters. The first one is a mesh collider, simply a convex mesh that acts as the main collision detection. The other is a box collider, this is so that the characters cannot walk on top of each other.
This being said, I then have a OnTriggerEnter() function that detects if I hit a enemy (using collider.transform.root.compareTag()) And then damages that enemy. However, having two colliders, this fires twice instead of once. Any solution to this problem? I am aware that I could detect if I have alerady hit that gameobject once and if I have just ignore it on the second collision. This would then require me to store both colliders in a list and once in exits both colliders reset the list, which just feels a bit hacky to me, and I would imagine there is some practice to doing this properly?
Thank you in advance
