Why is GetRectFromBounds protected?

I’m trying to use GridGraph.GetNodesInRegion (IntRect rect, GridNodeBase[] buffer) because it doesn’t generate garbage like GridGraph.GetNodesInRegion (Bounds bounds) does.

But to convert my worldspace bounds into an IntRect I need to call GridGraph.GetRectFromBounds (Bounds bounds) which is marked as protected.
It seems weird to me that a method that requries an IntRect is public whereas the method to get an IntRect is protected.

By marking the method public I am able to solve my problem and everything seems to work as expected, but I worry that I’m missing something important that will cause a bug down the road.


Oops. That shouldn’t be the case.
I will make it public in the next update. You can patch your local version until then.
