New features:

-It can be turned on and off by triggers. Make it "bstoppable = true" if you want to turn it off with a trigger;-

-Total classes allowed has been lowered from 32 to 16, as nobody will need to spawn that many classes with just one factory. (It's impossible to control how many monsters of each class it'll spawn, however you can use one class more than once to raise its chance of being spawned);-

-It has now the ability to call an event after all spawns are over, eliminating the need of trigger counters.-

You must attach this factory to the RandomSpawnPoint to get it work properly. If you attach it to regular spawnpoints, all monsters will spawn in "pacifist" state.

//=============================================================================
// RandomCreatureFactory. (Originally created by Salty_Pepper. Unsucessfully fixed by Naked_Monster.
// Sucessfully fixed by Timmypowergammer later on.)
// Spawns random creatures from a list. Also added ability to be switched off
// by a trigger (if bStoppable is set True). When finished it will trigger the
// FinishedEvent (if specified). Must be used with RandomSpawnPoint.
