Remove a destroy object from a list, then reload the list

MissingReferenceException: The object of type ‘BoxCollider’ has been destroyed but you are still trying to access it.
Your script should either check if it is null or you should not destroy the object.

Those are the two errors Im getting. I’ve been trying to find ways around them, but it somehow causes more errors.

So does anyone have a solution to this?

If you want to iterate through a collection and modify it while doing so (such as removing or adding items), don’t use a foreach loop. Use a normal for… loop, but do it in reverse like this, and you will get no errors. Otherwise, the current index gets messed up.

for (int i = rCol.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
     Collider r = rCol*;*

//Do whatever you want with r… Remove it from rCol, Destroy it,… it will work flawlessly.
Edit: I just saw that meat5000 already suggested this :slight_smile:

Haven’t dissected the code yet to see if this is the issue, but you should never remove an object in the middle of the foreach loop.
