What is "select Parent"?

I have no clue what it does. 99% of the time nothing different happens, the rest of the time, the game crashes.

Can someone give me a quick rundown on what it do???

    When you set an object to have a parent, that object now has that parent's behaviors- and when the parent receives a message- it will too.

    This also means if you set a collision to the parent object- an object that has the target object as its parent will be counted in the collision, too.

    This is how Starblast 3 has all these enemies, but only has one collision block for them, it is also why they all get the players coordinates- because the ship is sending them through messages to the parent object, because all the enemies share that 1 single parent object- "E ,parent"
