What's the difference between Hide and release.


I know you can get a hidden entity back with show and you can get a released entity with instance are there any advantages to using either?

From what I'm aware, hiding an item does exactly that - it's hidden. Imagine the invisible texture and no collision.

Release would actually remove the object from the world until it's needed again. Releasing an object also stops any scripts running within it, whereas hiding does not.
