blockplaceholders.xml[edit | edit source]

Block Placeholders are special blocks used in the creation of prefabs. They stand for "some random block of type <X>". So when creating a prefab, you can have a sort of random junk block, and the game will create a random type of garbage from the list of possible objects to spawn in for that block. For example, a street has just a scattering of blocks called "Street Random Loot Helper" but when the game renders them, it will choose an actual block from this list:

 <placeholder name="cntStreetRandomLootHelper">
   <block name="cntTrashPile01"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile02"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile03"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile04"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile05"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile06"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile07"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile08"/>
   <block name="cntTrashPile09"/>
   <block name="cntShoppingCart" prob=".05"/>
   <block name="cntShoppingCartEmpty" prob=".75"/>
   <block name="cntBackpack01" prob=".05"/>
