Component ticking even when deactivated?

Hi there,

I’ve got some puzzling questions here:

  • doesn’t deactivating a component stop it from ticking?
  • doesn’t an actor tick its components when it’s ticked, which means its components shouldn’t be ticked if it doesn’t get ticked?

Appreciate some clarification here…thanks!


You need to set Tick to be Enabled or Disabled manually.

A component will always tick unless told otherwise.

Did you manage to find an solution to your question?

If so could you please mark the answer as correct if that was what you were looking for or post the correct answer yourself so that this ticket can be closed.

Thank you.


Yes I’m already aware of that.
My question was more about the aforementioned inconsistencies, not so much how to activate/deactivate components.


“Deactivated” can be a pretty broad term, how so is your component deactivated?

The only time something will stop ticking is if it is destroyed or tick has been disabled.
