Today I wanted to talk a little about Spawn Locations. It would seem as if a majority of popular games do not use the SpawnLocation object as intended, instead preferring to script their own system. I would like to know if this is accurate, and if so, why developers chose to not use them. Please lean towards answering why and how SpawnLocations do or do not meet your needs in this post, rather than suggesting singular solutions.
I have included some sample questions to address:
- Do you use Spawn Locations as intended? (Without extra scripts). If so, what type of game do you use them in?
- Are there any features or properties of SpawnLocations which deter you from using them? If so, what are those features, and in what way are they causing you difficulties?
- What spawning feature(s) does your game need(or use already) and what would you like to have added?
TL;DR, any comments you have regarding Spawning is appreciated, and feel free to make complaints or suggestions.
