Object Instances

Has the thought of making objects as 'instances' with copy and paste ever been looked into?

It would save having to make new objects of the same...especially if you need quite a few...

Cheers

Short answer is "yes, of course".
Long answer is, engine need to be modified quite a bit for this.
Since we created a new development branch where backwards compatibility is cut out, modifying it may become easier now.
(Then again, I believed this could have been done earlier too, just no one found time and will to do so)
