GetComponentInParent (and therefore) StaticOptimizeEntity not working as expected

    Trying to use StaticOptimizeEntity on an entity prefab and it would just not add the static component.
    After debugging and stepping through, for some reason


    The line
    Code (CSharp):
    1. go.GetComponentInParent<StaticOptimizeEntity>()
    is returning null even though the gameobject clearly has the StaticOptimizeEntity script and therefore the line

    Code (CSharp):
    1. flags |= StaticMask;
    is never entered.

    GetComponentInParent should return components on the same game object from documentation
    But for whatever reason it's not working here, startup order or something?

    This is an entity added via IDeclareReferencedPrefabs

    Code (CSharp):
    1. public void DeclareReferencedPrefabs(List<GameObject> referencedPrefabs)
    2. {
    3.     referencedPrefabs.Add(this.prefab);
    4. }
    Am I overlooking something stupid?


    should add, this seems to work fine for entities in scene being converted just not these prefabs.

    and this was tested in 2019.1.7f1

    @tertle, have you solved this problem?

    I also noticed that StaticOptimizeEntity seems to have no effect in a prefab.
