Creating and Destroying GameObjects in unity

Creating GameObjects Some Games Keeps normal object in game but some require addition gameObjects at runtime so you can simply create game objects in run time by calling Instantiate function which make copy of existing gameObject   Example :- public GameObject object; void Start() { for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) { Instantiate(object); } } It will create 5 gameObject as soon as you start game. if object from which the copy is made doesn’t have to be present in the scene. It is more common to use a prefab  dragged to a public variable from the Project panel in the editor. Also, instantiating a GameObject will copy all the Components present on the original . Example:- using UnityEngine; public class Example : MonoBehaviour { // Reference to the Prefab. Drag a Prefab into this field in the Inspector. public GameObject myPrefab; // This script will simply instantiate the Prefab when the game starts. void Start() { // Instantiate at position
