Detailed Description

Defines an interface for object pooling, used in PhotonNetwork.Instantiate and PhotonNetwork.Destroy.

To apply your custom IPunPrefabPool, set PhotonNetwork.PrefabPool.

The pool has to return a valid, disabled GameObject when PUN calls Instantiate. Also, the position and rotation must be applied.

Note that Awake and Start are only called once by Unity, so scripts on re-used GameObjects should make use of OnEnable and or OnDisable. When OnEnable gets called, the PhotonView is already updated to the new values.

To be able to enable a GameObject, Instantiate must return an inactive object.

Before PUN "destroys" GameObjects, it will disable them.

If a component implements IPunInstantiateMagicCallback, PUN will call OnPhotonInstantiate when the networked object gets instantiated. If no components implement this on a prefab, PUN will optimize the instantiation and no longer looks up IPunInstantiateMagicCallback via GetComponents.

Member Function Documentation

void Destroy ( GameObject  gameObject)

Called to destroy (or just return) the instance of a prefab. It's disabled and the pool may reset and cache it for later use in Instantiate.

A pool needs some way to find out which type of GameObject got returned via Destroy(). It could be a tag, name, a component or anything similar.

Parameters
gameObjectThe instance to destroy.

Implemented in DefaultPool.

GameObject Instantiate ( string  prefabId,
Vector3  position,
Quaternion  rotation 
)

Called to get an instance of a prefab. Must return valid, disabled GameObject with PhotonView.

Parameters
prefabIdThe id of this prefab.
positionThe position for the instance.
rotationThe rotation for the instance.
Returns
A disabled instance to use by PUN or null if the prefabId is unknown.

Implemented in DefaultPool.
