Freeze problem with asset spawner Oo

Hello all!

Freeze problem when several simple assets appear by asset spawner with behavior projectil :frowning:
I installed 16 cannons on a parkour which fire a projectile (8 every 3 seconds and 8 every 4 seconds). The projectiles arrive via asset spawner with a timer event, these assets are very small with only 6 faces…
Do you also have this problem? Is there a way to avoid this (very short) freeze while keeping these 16 cannons?

Triggering many spawners at the same time causing lag to spikes/freeze you’re mentioning?
Try pressing F11 and using a profiler to confirm this.

If yes, what you can do to optimize

  • Reducing the spawner count
  • OR avoid triggering too many of them at the same time
  • OR find other more optimized way to do it.

From your post, I assume the cannon shooting non-stop every few seconds.
How about consider to only activating the spawner when a player enters the range, turn them off when player exit, by using Trigger Volume and Toggle Component.

Another solution
If your canon direction is fixed, what I would consider is assign the Projectile along with Health component. When the projectile collides, send a message to self to kill with the health. When you set the Death event to ‘Reset’. It will reset its position and repeat the shooting without using the Asset Spawner.
