Notes on instant game object spawning
Previously, the engine did a one frame delay between a call to factory.create() and the actual spawning of the game object. That delay is now removed. If your project included code to specifically wait one frame before starting to manipulate a game object, the new version might break your project. If you run into problems, please contact the Defold team and we’ll help you.
