the difference from having just a model of a soda can and an iProp of a
soda can? Everything! With the iProp soda can we can right-click on it
and have any avatar approach it and interact with it. But, how do we get
the avatar to walk over to the iProp?! Well, letís take a closer look at

is an invisible circle around the prop at a designated distance in which an
avatar will stop at when approaching a prop. Action Radius is also the distance

of the circle.
