Summary0000228: Smart incrementing of duplicated and prefab objects and links
DescriptionWe've talked about this on the forums a lot, and it's definitely vital behavior. That said, I don't think it's been tracked yet, and it appears not to work currently.

When an item is duplicated or prefabbed, the entity names and links need to be smartly incremented. For a simple example, open (in the repository).

light_candleflame_moving_2 binds to candle_1

However, if you duplicate (or prefab) the item,

light_candleflame_moving_2 and light_candleflame_moving_3 now BOTH bind to candle_1

and it no longer would work correctly. The mapper would manually have to update the bind to match the new base (see also a duplication selection bug to be entered shortly, which plays a small role in this).

Considerations that come to mind are:
-incrementing properly so as to not clobber existing items (if light_11 is to be duplicated, but light_12 already exists, light_13 must be the duplicate name)
-the 'bind' property (source and destination names both)

Important note: This may be important for more than just "bind", I don't know. For example, I imagine this would also be needed for path nodes (or any logical link).
TagsNo tags attached.

The issue with "bind" not incrementing, should be resolved now. I'm uploading a new build right now, so this can be tested. It's not unlikely that there still remain some issues, but let's see.

I think this is okay. I stressed it by both numerous duplications as well as branching off and duplicating just single parts of the bind alone, and then coming back and trying to duplicate the original pair... and it works. :)
