==Creating ExtraData Control Objects == Mapthing records in ExtraData are only associated with a special control object that must be placed on the map in the usual manner. The ExtraData control object has a '''doomednum''' of 5004. Each control object specifies its corresponding ExtraData mapthing record number as an integer value in its mapthing '''options''' field. If your editor does not allow entering arbitrary values into the options field of mapthings, you will need to use the BOOM command-line editor, CLED. As of the initial writing time of this document, both DETH and Doom Builder support entering arbitrary integer values for the options field. Check your editor's documentation or user interface to verify if it supports this. The x, y, and angle fields of the ExtraData control object are passed on to the thing which will be spawned at the control point's location, so those fields of the control object should be set normally. The true type and options fields of the thing to be spawned, along with any extended fields, are specified in the ExtraData record. Any number of ExtraData control objects can reference the same ExtraData record. In the event that a control object references a non-existent ExtraData record, the ExtraData script for a level is missing, or the thing type referenced by an ExtraData record isn't valid, an [[Unknown]] thing will be spawned at the control point's location. Note that you cannot spawn ExtraData control objects using ExtraData. Attempting this will also result in an Unknown thing.
