How can I change a float value of an instantiated object from another script?

I have a Spawn Manager script that is in charge of spawning waves of enemies.
When a wave is completed, it is told to increase the rate at which it spawns enemies:

void WaveCompleted()
		Debug.Log ("Wave Completed!");

		state = SpawnState.COUNTING;
		waveCountdown = timeBetweenWaves;
        newSpawnRate = spawnRate + .1f;
        spawnRate = newSpawnRate;

The script I have for the instantiated enemies is pretty simple:

public float MoveSpeed = -2f;

// Use this for initialization
void Start () {


// Update is called once per frame
void FixedUpdate () {
	transform.Translate (new Vector3 (MoveSpeed, 0, 0)* Time.deltaTime);

void OnCollisionEnter(Collision col){
	if (col.gameObject.tag == "Bullet")
		Destroy (col.gameObject);

Since the Spawn Manager is already detecting when we’ve reached a new wave, I’d like to change the MoveSpeed float from this script similar to the way it effects the spawn rate. When I try to reference it, it seems to break the speed and the enemies don’t move across the screen at all and start spawning on top of each other. I don’t know if I’m going about referencing the value correctly as I’m just starting coding. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

go to your script 1 and put this
this to call you script 2 and float
dont forget put name yourscript 2 time

public yourscript yourscript ;

this how call value

yourscript .yourscript = 1

Simply get the script and modify it when you spawn them.

var go = Instantiate(EnemyPrefab);

var enemyScript = go.GetComponent<MyEnemyClass>();

enemyScript.MoveSpeed = 5f;

Hi there! If I understand you correctly, you may need to loop through the existing enemy
objects and change the MoveSpeed variable that way.

GameObject[] enemies;

enemies = GameObject.FindGameObjectsWithTag("Enemy");
foreach(GameObject enemy in enemies)
    enemy.GetComponent<nameOfScriptOnEnemy>().MoveSpeed = newValue;

This would only affect the speed of the already existing enemy objects I believe. In this case it may be easier to use global variables. Create an Empty GameObject, call it globals, and place the following code inside the monobehaviour of a script (call the script “globals”) and add it to the globals object.

    public static globals instance = null;
    public static float MoveSpeed;
    void Awake()
            if (instance == null)
                instance = this;
                if (instance != this)
            DontDestroyOnLoad(gameObject); //Persists between scenes

    void Start()
        MoveSpeed = -2f;

The code in the Awake method is called the singleton pattern and it makes it so that there is only one of the globals object at a given time.

Then when you want to access and/or change MoveSpeed, you call it with globals.MoveSpeed in a script.

Try to avoid using globals for everything, but in some situations they’re very useful. I’m also slightly new to C# so we’re in this together!

I hope that helps!
