public Vector2 textureCoord;


The uv texture coordinate at the collision location.

A ray is fired into the Scene. The textureCoord is the location where the ray has hit a collider. RaycastHit._textureCoord is a texture coordinate when a hit occurs. A Vector2 zero is returned if no mesh collider is present in the GameObject. This property can be accessed off the main thread.

Note: A textureCoord requires the collider to be a MeshCollider.

// Write black pixels onto the GameObject that is located
// by the script. The script is attached to the camera.
// Determine where the collider hits and modify the texture at that point.
// Note that the MeshCollider on the GameObject must have Convex turned off. This allows
// concave GameObjects to be included in collision in this example.
// Also to allow the texture to be updated by mouse button clicks it must have the Read/Write
// Enabled option set to true in its Advanced import settings.
