I've been trying to scale an object that should have a trigger, while the game is running. Unfortunately, it seems like scaling through code completely disables the trigger.
I've tried adding a trigger, and scaling the object afterwards, as well as scaling the object first, and then adding the trigger. Neither of these methods seem to result in a working trigger. When I comment the 'setScale()' method out, the trigger works perfectly fine.

Is it simply not possible to have a trigger on a scaled object, or are there some special tricks for this?

yes, this i snot possible.
Physical objects must not be scaled.
In the named example the trigger will be scaled, when its parent is scaled.

That explains a lot, thanks. I'm assuming there is no workaround for this?

not really, because you can't scale physical objects.

But you could use this function
to check which objects are in the 'virtual box'.
