		var position: Vector3 = Vector3(Random.Range(-10.0, 10.0), 0, Random.Range(-10.0, 10.0));
		Instantiate(prefab, position, Quaternion.identity);
	}
using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;

public class ExampleClass : MonoBehaviour { public GameObject prefab; // Instantiate the prefab somewhere between -10.0 and 10.0 on the x-z plane void Start() { Vector3 position = new Vector3(Random.Range(-10.0F, 10.0F), 0, Random.Range(-10.0F, 10.0F)); Instantiate(prefab, position, Quaternion.identity); } }

public static function Range(min: int, max: int): int;
public static int Range(int min, int max);
