EntityCopyData

Description

Data structure used by the duplicator to store and load entity data.

It is created by duplicator.CopyEntTable and can be loaded by duplicator.CreateEntityFromTable.

It also shows up in several other contexts:

1=In addition to all fields listed here, any field saved on the entity will be saved as-is to this table. For example, if you set ent.FavoriteFood = "Steak" before duplicating it, this structure will also contain the field FavoriteFood with the value "Steak".
