I seem to be having some problems with using this correctly... maybe I'm doing something wrong, or maybe its just BYOND.
Here are my problems:
In my Generator objects, there is a var that containts the thing to generate. For example, I can do /obj/pileofgold or /mob/littleevilthingthatkillsyou and both work if I set it to that in the code, but if I try to change it through the instance editor, it says it "contains invalid characters" no matter what I change it to... Actually, I can change it to a number, but thats not what I want.
My second problem, also related, is creating a list that is editable through the instance editor. No matter what I do here, I also get the "contains invalid characters" message. Note that I can change mob.contents and lists like that through the instance editor just fine. There shouldn't be any difference here. Is there?
I assume I'm just doing something wrong and don't know about it...
