Wouldn't be better not to derive from Actor, but from a special class, I don't know, ActorContainer? The hierarchical limitation is an obvious problem and as soon as you do basic stuff you have to dealt with it, but instead of using a work-around a container maybe the way to go. Just to be clear ActorContainer does not exist, is just an idea😊

Just another crutch for initially bad design! Keep it up! We only halfway to the Castle of Crutches!
