    I modified spawn node. In this snake game template, goal was to spawn food to random places, after colliding with it.

    And it must spawn inside this blue frame, not outside somewhere. For that, game objects are all in positive X and Y axis. It works with negative numbers also (like start X coordinate is -10 and end X coordinate is 10 etc),
    Modified spawn node looks like this:

    This is for X and Y axis, but it is easy to add Z axis also.
    Here I set minimum and maximum coordinates for X and Y axis, and it must spawn inside of those values.

    You can find spawn node inside actor's asset.

    That's awesome! Good job!

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to spawn an object on/in my actor. Currently I have an actor constantly moving forward but whenever I use the spawn node it will spawn the object but won't stay attached to the actor. Any idea on how to make it so the spawned object will move along with the actor?

    Check @Trapix Games Weapon + Bullet Node:
    https://www.buildbox.com/forum/index.php?threads/weapon-bullet-node.17472/

    There you can pick up a weapon, and it is attached to character.

    Maybe "Follow" node works also, but I don't have any examples yet, how to use it.

    Is there a way to make it so that this spawn feature happens at a random time as well as location?
    For example, I am looking to place a power-up in my game, and I'd like it so that the power up spawns both randomly in time and in location. The location part is explained above I believe, however what about timing-wise?

    Thank you SO much!

    You could modify timer node with random function.

    @Hanomax If you have time could you please do it with the latest spawn nodes? I tried to do it but it spawns outside the walls.
