Object spawner

Spawn (create) objects periodically.

Authors and contributors to this community extension: VictrisGames.


Can be used to create enemies, NPCs, environmental objects, etc.

How to use:

  • Add this behavior to an object
  • Place spawners on the scene
  • Run the “Spawn objects” action on every frame
  • Control spawning by adjusting behavior properties

Properties: Spawn period: Number of seconds before spawning another object. Max quantity: Each spawner will try to maintain this number of spawned objects Offset X/Y: Use to adjust where the object are spawned, relative to the origin of the spawner

Tips:

  • Use “Object was just spawned” condition to trigger visual and sound effects (if desired)
  • Set max quantity to “0” to never stop spawning objects
  • Spawned objects are automatically linked to the spawner
  • Note: If max quantity has been reached and an instance is deleted, the spawner will wait the duration of spawn period before creating another instance.
