Add model with KSPParticleEmitter to gameobject


Recommended Posts

I am trying to add a model to a gameobject A, my plan is to create a new gameobject B with the model and attach B to A as child.

But the KSPparticleemitter in B could not be got by GetComponentInChildren<KSPParticleEmitter>() after attachment. 

 

GameObject DebObj = GameDatabase.Instance.GetModel(SunbeamFXPath);
KSPParticleEmitter pe = DebObj.GetComponentInChildren<KSPParticleEmitter>();
Debug.Log("<color=green>[RayMonitor] </color>Deb PE = "+ pe.name);//This log will return the name 
DebObj.transform.SetParent(RayObj.transform);
KSPParticleEmitter rpe = RayObj.GetComponentInChildren<KSPParticleEmitter>();
Debug.Log("<color=green>[RayMonitor] </color>Ray PE = " + rpe.name);//This log will return NRE

Is there better solutions?

Don't mess with the original models in GameDatabase. Instantiate a new GameObject using them instead or you'll blow things up later. I would be surprised if your first log was working; GetComponentInChildren only returns a component on active GameObjects (unless you use one of its overloads) and none of the model stuff should be active

Yeah, I noticed later, if the GO is not active, then GetComponentInChildren still give you result, but if child is not active GetComponentInChildren will return nothing.
