I have a basically stock SWR 1 Fuss.. It has a max vnum of
32767.. is it possible to add more on to this number. I have
many very large area files that i wish to install that
require more space than it appears is available.

There are a number of snipets and existing posts regarding this one. Most revolve around recasting the vnum variable type from sh_int to int, long, long long, or an unsigned variant of those three to get increasingly larger vnum limits.

There is a difference in how the SMAUG version of the 2billion vnum code on Samson's site works with the virtual vnums and SWR's virtual rooms. I was never able to solve it, though I never spent any serious amount of time on it. The problem came, I beleive, with overrunning the int limit on rooms created with exdist settings for exits.
