# Parenting disabled collision with child objects

I have a cube mesh that I want to have deleted when it collides with a hitbox. I parented the cube to another cube which is used for steering. After doing the parenting, the child no long fires the end object action on collisions. I have tried grouping them and having compound collision, but that doesn't help. I also ensured that neither of the options were set to 'ghost. How do I get this to work?

• You had an end object actuator to the cube before parenting it to another cube? And after the parenting took place it won't disappear no more? Can you share blend file through pasteall.org/blend ? – Lev Aug 10 '15 at 20:47
• pasteall.org/blend/37503 <---there you go, the blue cube has a yellow sensor poking out of the corners, when it collides with the red cube and vice-verse, but since the red cube is parented to the purple box, it doesn't die – Fusco Aug 11 '15 at 8:50
• It would be nice to skip the scene restart. It took me some headache to find out why your cubes are constantly resetting ;) – Monster Aug 13 '15 at 5:26

If you need an object that senses collisions but does not get effected by physics you can use the Physics type Sensor. You can even parent it to another object. Just make sure it is larger than the parent. Otherwise it can't detect anything.
