Group Structure

This tag should be applied to a group containing two Locator components and one or more RectTriggerVolume or SphereTriggerVolume components.

One of the two Locator components should be named "Camera", this one will represent the base position of the camera used when summoning a car.

The other Locator component represents the position of the floating phone icon.

Typically, Radical uses a SphereTriggerVolume for phonebooths.
