Terrain texture index

The event action is pretty complete, but it doesn't cover this situation.
How can you solve this in Playmaker? Is it even possible?

Doh... the forum has eaten part of the post...
I was talking about the collision event of course.

I don't think this is a very particular scenario nowadays anymore, as the environments become more and more visually realistic, also the feedback needs to keep on par.

How would you proceed to detect which texture index is touching an object? Raycast?
I guess with Playmaker this can't be done at the moment and needs some coding...

Hi,

 you have an action called GetTerrainTextureName on the Ecosystem, have you tried this?

 Bye,
