The Procedural Instance Spawner is made to enrich game environments through procedural spawning.

The spawner utilizes background threads to minimize performance impact and is fully deterministic.

Includes blueprint functions for removal of spawned meshes in runtime.

Version 1.3 - Bug fixes and added setting for including objects with mobility set to Movable when tracing (Off by default).

Version 1.2 - Significant generation speedup!

(After updating to the new version, please regenerate the spawners to ensure optimal performance. This will prevent duplication of instances spawned with previous versions.)

Version 1.1 - Added support for filtering by Surface Types.
