    I want to save a list of "ClassA" with different typs in the Class "DatabaseA".
    Currently i cant save a System.object in my list. All other types work.

    public class ExampleClass
    {
    int i;
    System.object obj, <-- will not be saved in the ".asset" file
    float f;
    }

    public class DatabaseA: ScriptableObject
    {
    public List<ExampleClass> ListExampleClass;
    }

    Thx for your Answer. Yehr convert the type to a string is good idea.
    float, int, and so on... can be easly converted from string.
    But how i can convert a string to GameObject/Prefab, Texture2D, AudioClip?
    Unity also converts it from a string to a reference.

    Hint: I want to edit the stored data in a EditorWindow.

    Instead using the System.Object it would fit my needs using UnityEngine.Object if it is possible convert a UnityEngine.Object to base Types like uint, int, float and bool.
