When triggered by any event source that accepts an Action (for Spawn()), or Action<float3> (for SpawnAtPoint(), this component will spawn a random slot from Templates

The Spawn() trigger can be invoked by a component such as Button Action Trigger, when bound to a UIX Button or Neos Button

The SpawnAtPoint() trigger can be invoked by a component such as Character Event Trigger, which provides the required Float3 argument.

Prior to Build 2020.11.8.605, this component would duplicate a random slot from Templates in-place, without changing its location.
