How to delete actors and some other things

So I duplicated a bunch of Protoss Structures in the Galaxy editor, problem is when they warp in, in game they have like 12 warp animations, I think it's because the actors for that warp have like a dozen plus "copies" this is causing extreme lag each time a building is warped in.

How do I get rid of these?

---------------------------------------------

Secondly I duplicated a building from the Warp Gate but when I try to construct it ingame the animation doesn't appear (it's that stupid dome thing instead)

I don't think this structure has a "birth" animation but I don't know how to give it one.

How do I do this?

I do stuff and thingies... Try widening and reducing the number of small nooks and crannies to correct the problem.

You can use the test cheat "actorInfoDisplay" to enable/disable actor debug output.

Then you can select and hover over a unit and see all actors attached to it and around that point.

You should be able to see the IDs of the actors that are there. It should help you figure out which actors are too much.

If you duplicate units, never duplicate everything. Usually that breaks stuff.

A Warpgate is essentially a Gateway + actor modifications for animations. So you should try to use "Gateway Birth" as the unit actor's build model. That might work.

Nevermind, I think I figured it out, I guess my brain was asleep last night.

Also I had to duplicate units for my "fourth" race.

I also encountered another minor issue.


a modified "Pylon" while it does supply power, it and other "protoss" structures do not use the powered up animation, they use the powered down one instead, how do I fix this.

Check that they use the correct macros in the unit actor.
