Might create a (layout) loader for level editor.

Uh, the concept is -
A. the level editor will create a data structure(an array or a dictionary plugin could get JSON string), then save it into a file or upload it to somewhere.
B. the loader is a parser to parse the saved data structure, do some commands like create instances on layout.rexrainbow2012-07-02 10:26:44
