Containers spawning without reason

  • Hello,

    Problem Description

    Containers outside of the layout are replicating inside of it without reason. Is there an evil leprechaun inside Cs2 ? <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif" alt=":twisted:" title="Twisted Evil">

  • From the manual:

    What containers do

    Placing objects in a container has the following effects:

    If one object in a container is created, every other object in its container is also automatically created.

    Isn't this what is happening?

  • What object ? Did I make something spawn here ?

  • Specifically, you have two 'boost0' objects on your layout. When they get spawned during layout creation, the other contained objects will also get spawned, i.e. a Beacon0 and Boost0 for each Stone0. You could move them off screen (in C2 actions) if you wanted to.

  • Closing, please follow the bug report guidelines and only attach a minimal .capx demonstrating the problem with minimum events and objects. Also as other posts have pointed out it is by design that objects in containers must have one of each instance at all times, and the engine will create any missing instances on startup if necessary.

  • Argll sry, now I understand !

    Thank you everyone.
