Color Menu

The color menu contains two selections "random" and "black".

Appearance Menu

The appearance menu allows the appearance of the shape to be set to either transparent or opaque. "Transparent" will make the shape invisible except for the border. "Opaque" will make the shape a solid color. This menu does not effect how the bot sees the shape.

Physicality Menu

The Physicality menu allows the bots' perceptions of the shapes to be changed. Selecting "bots can see shapes" will cause the shape to register with the bots eyes; bots can detect a shape using the .reftype sysvar. Selecting "bots can see through shapes" will cause the shape to be transparent to the bot. Selecting "shapes absorb shots" will cause the object to absorb shots instead of allowing them to bounce off of it.
