Tags component

A tags component attaches any number of 4 character tags to an entity. Tags are used to identify special entities such as the player ship. There might be more uses for them in future. Builtin ICE tags always start with an undescore, e.g. the player ship tag, _PLR. In future, when/if tags are more general purpose, custom tags used by mods should not start with underscores.

The tags component is defined as a sequence of tag strings. These strings must be at most 4 characters long.


tags: [_PLR]

An entity with this tags component has the _PLR tag, which is a builtin tag used to identify the player ship.
