    Hi all.
    Ok. Here's my scenario:. I have a prefab (with child objects) that I instantiate into the scene which works fine. Let's call that Farm.
    I have another prefab object(let's say a chicken) that I then want to add to the Farm but - I only want to add the chicken in a particular area in the farm. Let's call that (child object/ layer) the Field.
    Sooo. How do I find the Field layer on the instantiated Farm prefab?

    I can get the Farm object name directly after I've instantiated it, but can't figure out the rest(!) Mostly due to time constraints, so thought I'd ask the collective.

    Thanks for your thoughts and hope it makes sense!

    Gavin

    Couldn't figure it out so I simplified it. Rather than going around in circles I just drop items randomly between -4 and 4 on the x axis. Works but doesn't allow for non conforming shapes. Meh.
