Additional Physics Colliders

Physics

-

-

Having more maths-based shapes would reduce dependency on mesh colliders and provide performance gains. Additional geometry I'd like to propose:

Cylinder
Triangular prism
Pyramid of N sides
Torus
Cone

Honorable Mention:

Spline lathe
Shape slicing (half sphere)

    @Edy, I've just sent an email over to Nvidia and I'll update with what I receive!

    This depends on the geometry types provided by nVidia PhysX. I think the suggestion should be directed to them:

    I've heard rumors about an upcoming "conic capsule" collider (capsule with 2 radius values) though.
