    The title pretty much says it all. I can enable and disable objects that are not a child of anything just fine but as soon as I make said game object a child it will disable but will not re-enable. I am a complete beginner in the world of Unity and programming (been doing it for about 2 days now) so explain things to me like I'm stupid please! Thanks!

    Code (CSharp):
    1. using System.Collections;
    2. using System.Collections.Generic;
    3. using UnityEngine;
    4.  
    5. public class HideWheel : MonoBehaviour
    6. {
    7.  
    8. public GameObject front;
    9. public GameObject rear;
    10.  
    11. public bool Equip;
    12.  
    13. private void Update()
    14. {
    15.  
    16.  
    17.  
    18.  
    19. //activate front tire
    20. if (Equip == true)
    21. {
    22. front.SetActive(true);
    23. }
    24. else
    25. {
    26. front.SetActive(false);
    27. }
    28.  
    29.  
    30.  
    31.  
    32.  
    33.  
    34. //activate rear tire
    35. if (Equip==true)
    36. {
    37. rear.SetActive(true);
    38. }
    39. else
    40. {
    41. rear.SetActive(false);
    42. }
    43.  
    44. }
    45.  
    46.  
    47. }

    Depends where you script is. If your script is part of the object being disabled, then the script is disabled (and hence Enable will not be called). Try moving the script to the root layer or somewhere else and see if it helps.
