How come there is no way to set a GameObject component to an instantiated instance of a component? This ought to be supported.
This doesn’t work:
//load saved instance of Rotation script
Rotation rot = ES2.Load(savefilePath + “?tag=rotation” + tag);
//Add rotation component to prefab:
//Replace added Rotation script with loaded instance:
newRot = rot;
The code compiles and runs without errors, but doesn’t actually work. The “newRot=rot” seems to do nothing.
The workaround is to manually set all the fields in the newly instantiated script to the values stored in the loaded instance. I’ve done this and it works fine. But doing this makes me want to break things, because it just seems so stupid.
It seems like you could write some utility method that uses reflection to automatically set all the fields, but I’m far to lazy to do this.
What gives Unity?
