How to change what's being generated in the Random Map Generator!?

Could somebody be so kind and tell me where is the resource file to determine what should be placed in the RMG!?
And what is in the "Random" things such as "Random Monster 3" or "Random Minor Artifact"!?
When I generate a map randomly using Map Editor, it select all the monsters and buildings for me!
I would like to change it all to "random" things!
Is it possible!?
Thank you very much for your help!

"Random Monster 3" means that the game will select one of the possible tier 3 monsters (Griffins, Elves, Wights, etc ...) to put into that spot, when the game is created. The next time you start a game on that same map, it is randomly determined again and may very well be a different creature - albeit from the same Tier.

The same applies to the random artifacts. A "Random Minor Artifact" means that the game will randomly pick one of the allowed Minor Artifacts and put it in that spot, when the game is started. Each time a new game is started, the game will randomly determine another one to put there (which may be one that you already had there before, but the chance is small).

I'm sorry I didn't explain my question well!
What I mean is:
What is the "list" in "Random Monster 3" or "Random Minor Artifact"!?
Is it possible for me to take away something from that list or add some more to it!?

Nope!
When I click on the icon, the "Property" showed up!
And if I right-click the icon, the "Help" showed up!

It's simply the collection of ALL members in that specific category. I.e., "Monster 3" is simply the collection of ALL Tier 3 Creatures that exist ingame, and "Minor Artifact" is simply the collection of ALL Minor Artifacts that exist ingame.

There's no explicit list, in that sense, that can be edited; all objects flagged for a specific attribute (like a Creature being of Tier 3) is automatically and implicitely a member of the collection (like the Monster 3 collection).

Since the list isn't explicit, the answer is unfortunately no.

Would be a nice feature though, to have an item with the "Random" property of a given type, that can be edited within the map editor. Would require an update to the Map Editor as well as the code that generates a map when the game is launched to accomodate this, though.
