The Polygon ColliderAn invisible shape that is used to handle physical collisions for an object. A collider doesn’t need to be exactly the same shape as the object’s mesh - a rough approximation is often more efficient and indistinguishable in gameplay. More info
See in Glossary 2D is a Collider 2D component that interacts with the 2D physics system. It’s shape is a freeform edge of line segments that you can adjust to fit the shape of a spriteA 2D graphic objects. If you are used to working in 3D, Sprites are essentially just standard textures but there are special techniques for combining and managing sprite textures for efficiency and convenience during development. More info
See in Glossary or any other shape. Note: The edge must enclose an area for the collider to work.
|Edit Collider||Select this to edit the collider’s geometry by editing and moving its vertices.|
|Material||Select the Physics Material 2DUse to adjust the friction and bounce that occurs between 2D physics objects when they collide More info
See in Glossary that determines properties of collisionsA collision occurs when the physics engine detects that the colliders of two GameObjects make contact or overlap, when at least one has a Rigidbody component and is in motion. More info
See in Glossary, such as friction and bounce.
|Is Trigger||Enable this if you want this Collider 2D to behave as a trigger. The physics system ignores this Collider when this is enabled.|
|Used by Effector||Enable this if you want the Collider 2D to be used by an attached Effector 2D.|
|Used by Composite||Enable this if you want this Collider to be used by an attached Composite Collider 2D.
Note: When you enable Used by Composite, other properties disappear from the Box Collider 2D component as they are now controlled by the attached Composite Collider 2D. The properties that disappear from the Box Collider 2D are Material, Is Trigger, Used By Effector, and Edge Radius.
|Auto Tiling||Enable this if the Sprite RendererA component that lets you display images as Sprites for use in both 2D and 3D scenes. More info
See in Glossary component for the selected Sprite has the Draw Mode set to Tiled. This enables automatic updates to the shape of the Collider 2D, allowing the shape to automatically readjust when the Sprite’s dimensions change. If you don’t enable Auto Tiling, the Collider 2D geometry doesn’t automatically repeat.
|Offset||Set the local offset values of the Collider 2D geometry.|
|Use Delaunay MeshThe main graphics primitive of Unity. Meshes make up a large part of your 3D worlds. Unity supports triangulated or Quadrangulated polygon meshes. Nurbs, Nurms, Subdiv surfaces must be converted to polygons. More info
See in Glossary
|Enable this property to include an additional Delaunay triangulation step to produce the Collider mesh.|

|Layer Overrides||Expand for the Layer override settings.|
|Layer Override Priority||Assign the decision priority that this Collider2D uses when resolving conflicting decisions on whether a contact between itself and another Collision2D should happen or not. Refer to its API page for more information.|
|Include Layers||Select the additional Layers that this Collider 2D should include when deciding if a contact with another Collider2D should happen or not. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Exclude Layers||Select the additional Layers that this Collider 2D should exclude when deciding if a contact with another Collider2D should happen or not. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Force Send Layers||Select the Layers that this Collider 2D is allowed to send forces to during a Collision contact with another Collider2D. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Force Receive Layers||Select the Layers that this Collider 2D can receive forces from during a Collision contact with another Collider2D. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Contract Capture Layers||Select the Layers of other Collider 2D, involved in contacts with this Collider2D, that will be captured. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Callback Layers||Select the Layers that this Collider 2D, during a contact with another Collider2D, will report collision or trigger callbacks for. Refer to its API documentation for more information.|
|Info||Expand for read-only physics system related information about the collider.|
You can edit a collider’s geometry manually or have Unity generate its shape automatically. Unity automatically generates a collider’s geometry when you drag a sprite into the sceneA Scene contains the environments and menus of your game. Think of each unique Scene file as a unique level. In each Scene, you place your environments, obstacles, and decorations, essentially designing and building your game in pieces. More info
See in Glossary and add a Collider 2D component to it. The generated collider shape matches the outline of the sprite as close as possible.
