Feature Request

Alternative boundary to default sphere

Submitted by:Jimmy Gunawan Jimmy Gunawan
Would it be possible to change the boundary effector object, so instead of default sphere which has proximity from point, perhaps it is a cube or torus or even arbitrary objects with distance influence. It might be hard though. Nevertheless, this script itself is really useful and could be used to create neat effects that normally would take sometimes to setup. Thank you ;)

    I am planning to impliment something like this. I am aiming to do it so that the user can define their own object, but rather than triggering the animation by distance it would trigger the animation when it falls within the influence object's volume. In theory it would mean multiple drivers are possible also and even the influence object's actual shape could change over time.
