[Issue] Gena Spline Spawner failing to spawn anything


Go to solution Solved by designleviathan,

Recommended Posts


I've made a basic spawner with a collection of a few prefabs and am trying to spawn it along a Gena Spline.

When I click Spawn or Iterate it flashes for a second but nothing actually spawns or appears along the spline.

I tossed on a road component and that displays just fine along the spline. Nothing is in the console and nothing is reported when I click spawn / iterate.

I don't think I've made anything particularly complex here. Is there something I should know about with Spawners & Splines thats not in the documentation? Or is this a bug?

Thank you!

So it turns out it was the settings in the base spawner.

I can't tell which to be honest which I'm gonna comment on in a moment but turning on 'Force Spawn' helps well force it to spawn but only if the 'gena spawn target' is on the spline.

If you offset the position (example by -5 on the x axis) this will also break spawning.

As a small request to anyone from PW who reads this:

After spending several hours trying to figure out the cause I determined it was because of some errant spawner settings.

As a much needed QOL - would it be possible to get some sort of simple debug messages when nothing is spawned - as to why that is?

E.G: just a simple line in the console that only appears if sub-threshold instances are spawned.

"Nothing was spawned. <Height Rules> prevent spawning at current height tolerances"

This would be a incredible boon for newcomers and experienced people moving fast alike as currently the behaviour (Nothing happens) is quite opaque and ultimately is frustrating to troubleshoot.


Thanks for your time in reading if you have - stay safe out there.
