ChainShape

Available since LÖVE 0.8.0
This shape is not supported in earlier versions.

A ChainShape consists of multiple line segments. It can be used to create the boundaries of your terrain. The shape does not have volume and can only collide with PolygonShape and CircleShape.

Unlike the PolygonShape, the ChainShape does not have a vertices limit or has to form a convex shape, but self intersections are not supported.
