Object area = visible pixels

    At the moment, the object area must be a polygon. But why the object area could not be the visible pixels of the object image optionally? I have seen, the characters use this functionality. The mouse cursor gets active on a character, if the cursor is over visible pixels of the character image. This feature seems implemented already.

    PS: by the way: There is a bug with a mirrored character animation. The cursor uses the unmirrored sprite to check if its on the character. Very noticeable if you have a side view of a giraffe for example.

    That's a nice idea. In regards to mirrored character animations: I know they can save time, but I really do not recommend using them. If you need to access them via Lua script, you can't.

    This pixel based areas can be useful in interface section too (buttons, interface area...)
