    Help with Tower Defense

    I made my TD spawn creeps, but they spawn simultaneously. Is there a way to make them spawn one by one? That would be good really. Also, they seem to interact each other. Is there also a way to remove unit to unit interaction? Does this affect anything else, like projectiles hitting them?
