Description

When using the Python plugin to add an existing level as a streaming level, the editor crashes. It seems that this happens regardless of what level is added or what the contents of that level are. Additionally, the level crashes regardless of what LevelStreaming class is used. 

 

Tested in //UE4/Release-4.25 @ CL 14469661 but it seems the add_level_to_world method isn't implemented in 4.25, so not marking as a Regression.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open any project
  2. Enable the Python Editor Script Plugin
  3. Restart the Editor
  4. Create a new level and save it
  5. Press ~ to bring up the cmd window
  6. Change the cmd window to Python by clicking the dropdown
  7. Type the following unreal.EditorLevelUtils.add_level_to_world(unreal.World(), "<PathToLevel>", unreal.LevelStreamingAlwaysLoaded)

RESULT:

The editor crashes

EXPECTED:

The level would be added to the world as a streaming object
