Garry's Mod Spawnlist Generator

Normally, you can click and drag the items between spawnlists. However, if I move an item away from one of the default spawnlists (e.g. "Construction Props", "Comic Props", "Builder/Basic", etc.), it is no longer in that one, and I like the default spawnlists to stay as they are (call it OCD if you want). (AFAIK, you can't duplicate a spawnlist entry in-game.) Also, for some reason, they didn't use valid JSON for the spawnlist format, even though I think they easily could've. Instead, it's a weird form of JSON with no colons and varying spacing.

Usage: Create a new spawnlist. Go to GMODGAMEDIR\garrysmod\settings\spawnlist and note down the name and ID number (filename should be like ID-Name.txt). For each item you want, locate it in its original spawnlist, right-click it, click "Copy", and paste it below on a new line. To add things other than models, use the scheme below:

Convert it to a spawnlist here. Then, download the file and put it in the directory you got the original spawnlist file from, replacing it. Go to one of the default spawnlists, move an item, and click the green Revert arrow. Your spawnlist should now contain all the items you entered.
