Spawning still possible?

Hey there,

first off, the editor is a great tool to create games even for beginners (like me) and I'm happy that more features are still being added! Great work!

I have a question, namely is spawning still available? In the ARIS manual/tutorial and different discussions on Google it says that I can find the spawning options in the options of an object on the left side of ARIS (in the scenes tab) but for the life of me I cannot find them anywhere. Since the discussions were from at least a year ago and I have no idea how up-to-date the manual is I was wondering if the spawning option is even still available or if that's the reason I can't find it?

I would be very grateful about some help here on where to find it, or how else to spawn objects. And I hope I'm not just stupidly overlooking it...


Thanks in advance!

In ARIS 2.0 we call then "Factories." Factories are game objects that create other game objects, replacing "spawnable" objects in ARIS 1. Take a look, I believe the logic is really improved.

the manual also has a basic tutorial for using Factories.

And a bit more extensive one on my blog:
