public function OverrideGeometry(vertices: Vector2[], triangles: ushort[]): void;
public void OverrideGeometry(Vector2[] vertices, ushort[] triangles);


vertices Array of vertex positions in Sprite Rect space.
triangles Array of sprite mesh triangle indices.


Sets up new Sprite geometry.

Vertex positions are in Sprite.rect space meaning from Rect.zero to Rect.size. Pivot offset and transformation to unit space is done automatically.

The size of the triangle array must always be a multiple of 3. The vertices connected to the triangle can be shared by simply indexing into the same vertex.

Sprite UVs are calculated automatically by mapping the provided geometry onto the Sprite texture.

See Also: rect.

In the script example below the polygon shown in the Sprite Editor - Polygon Resizing is used. In this case the sprite has 8 sides. The right-most vertex is moved 50 pixels into the sprite. This is the third vertex.

// Obtain the vertices from the script and modify the position
// of one of them. Use OverrideGeometry() for this.
