splinecontroller initial position only applied after clamp.
#1
Im spawning and reusing dummy prefabs to move stuff along a spline. But their starting point should vary. When setting the initial position nothing happens when I run, the value isn't applied until the clamp happens ( which is set to loop ).

Code:
SplineController sc = a.GetComponent<SplineController>();

 sc.Position =  sc.InitialPosition = sc.Spline.GetNearestPointTF(StartPoint.position) * sc.Spline.Length;

Any idea what im doing wrong?

Ensure that AutoPlay isn't enabled and set InitialPosition first, then call Play(). That should do the trick...

Thanks Jake,

I tried that just now but don't move. It looks like the moment I instantiate my objects they don't apply most of the things I call. Play() doesn't actually make my object move nor does it set the initial position.

Edit:

Fixed it by doing the following:

Code:
   
if (!sc.IsInitialized)
  sc.Prepare();
   sc.Position =  sc.InitialPosition = sc.Spline.GetNearestPointTF(StartPoint.position) * sc.Spline.Length;

I still have to put auto play to true. Calling Play() doesn't work. But in my case that's fine I need them to move anyways. But any reason why Play() might not work?
