Type: string
Either "resource", "terrain" or "enemy". Controls in what tab the autoplace is shown in the map generator GUI.

Optional properties


Type: bool
Default: false
Sets whether this control's richness can be changed. The map generator GUI will only show the richness slider when the category is "resource".

If the autoplace control is used to generate ores, you probably want this to be true.


Type: bool
Default: true
Whether there is an "enable" checkbox for the autoplace control in the map generator GUI. If this is false, the autoplace control cannot be disabled from the GUI.
