How do I advance export as PackedScene?

You would normally export PackedScene as
export(PackedScene) var scene = preload('...')

But I want to categorize the variable, so I advance export it.

func _get_property_list() -> Array:
return [

The thing is… there is no TYPE_PACKEDSCENE. I tried to export as TYPE_OBJECT, It just exports all objects. Image

This also happens to every kind of export that TYPE_ doesn’t have. Please, let me know if there is any better way for better categorizing export or it is coming for gdscript 4.0.

You need to use a property hint for that:

    name = "asdasd",
    type = TYPE_OBJECT,
    hint_string = "PackedScene"

Thanks. Can I ask where did you know these? I can’t find this anywhere on the docs.

It’s not written directly, I pieced the information together from:
Object — Godot Engine (stable) documentation in English

Which lists PropertyHints:
@GlobalScope — Godot Engine (stable) documentation in English
