Well, is it possible that Mudlet modifying the map file to change
existing area names so that they are not blank or repeated; or adding a
new area that involves an area id we have warned users not to mess with
(IIRC) might not influence packages that they have in use?
If such things operate by area id, then no that is not likely to be a
problem - but if by area name, maybe, though duplicate names will cause
scripts issues if they key lua tables off those...!

Map issues still reported to screen with 'report map issues to screen'
Status in Mudlet:
Even though the I have the 'report map issues to screen' checkbox
turned off when selecting and loading in a map, 20+ lines related to
map issues are still printed to the screen:
[ INFO ] - Reading map (format version:16) file:
"/home/vadi/Dropbox/MMC/mapping/Sidd Map 1-25-15.dat",
[ ALERT ] - Empty and duplicate area names detected in Map file!
[ INFO ] - Due to some situations not being checked in the past, Mudlet had
allowed the map to have more than one area with the same or no
These make some things confusing and are now disallowed.
To resolve these cases, an area without a name here (or created
the future) will automatically be assigned the name "Unnamed
Duplicated area names will cause all but the first encountered
to gain a "_###" style suffix where each "###" is an increasing
number; you may wish to change these, perhaps by replacing them
a "(sub-area name)" but it is entirely up to you how you do this,
other then you will not be able to set one area's name to that of
another that exists at the time.
If there were more than one area without a name then all but the
first will also gain a suffix in this manner.
[ OK ] - The changes made are:
(ID) "old name" ==> "new name"
(0) "<nothing>" ==> "Unnamed Area"
[ INFO ] - Default (reset) area name (for rooms that have not been assigned
area) not found, adding "Default Area" against the reserved -1 id.
I think none of this should show, it should just go into the
errors.txt unless you have that checkbox enabled (and the checkbox to
fully do what it claims to say!).
