In DreamMaker, the "Generate Instances from Directions" feature is quite handy, saves the tedious task of editing dir manually on instances when you want stuff facing different directions.
Only one problem:
The instances it creates not only have dir overridden, but also tag! Having tag set is something people usually do not want. (It makes the objects un-GCable, and it is returned by \ref)
It unfortunately makes the feature useless to me, as now I have to go in and clear the tag, or try to do it post-hoc by editing the dmm.
If you'd rather not change the default behavior for backwards compatibility, a preference option to turn it off is perfectly good!
P.S. Same story for "Generate Instances from Icon-States"
This would probably also help http://www.byond.com/forum/?post=2089976 because my bet is any tag mapped in by SS13 map makers was most likely done by accident when using this feature.
