An area made on this wont run in SWR. It comes up with errors in certain lines. Make a setting for running on SWR? The errors are in CLIMATE and VERSION and some more ill look at when I get home!

Ever give any thought into this? I know some people would appreciate it.

It is hard to adapt the area editor to support various custom adaptations of the SMAUG area files. As soon as you add even a single extra integer I need to to this:

a) Detect that this version needs to be read differently (somehow)

b) Read the extra numbers/strings/whatever

c) Add them to the internal structures to be stored somewhere

d) Add the extra things to the GUI so you can edit them, working out validation rules while I am at it

e) Change the "write" routine to write out the extra numbers

At the rate of about 2 Area Editor registrations per month, it isn't worth spending hours and hours on a task like this, which may or may not add an additional registration every six months.

I had been thinking about a rewrite which is much more flexible, basically allowing you to specify the exact format of the area files, and thus handle virtually any style area files. However development has not commenced on that yet. :)
