Create Object (add name)
« on: April 08, 2015, 03:39:47 PM »
When you use the 'create object' action, it creates a clone of a prefab.  However, if you create more than 1 the names are the same.  Would be nice to be able to have the option to either
1) uniquely name the object
     So have a line in the action called 'name' and one could type in 'car-ford' or 'car-fiero'.
2) Have the object increment by number
     So the prefab is 'car'.  Each instance would be 'car-1' and then 'car-2.  So you would have to check the hierarchy to see if the object exists and if so, increment the number.
So

When You create object store on variable and there is action called "set name " you can definitely change the name of game object and  also increment numbers like car - 1, car - 2 with using  Build string action.
sorry for my bad English :P
