Lightbulb

I am trying to figure out how to get objects to save through a copyover if they are in a certain item type.  An example would be for all items in a donation pit would save through a copyover.  I know that saving items in the donation pit is not a good idea, just using it as an example.  Any help on this would be a great help.

Thanks,

Jaegar

Add the persist flag to the room/object, that will keep it from being deleted during a copyover, useful for lockers, clan halls, cabinets, etc......

Haven't been able to find anything on a persist flag.  Any ideas where I could obtain more information on it?

I doubt that's a part of the stock code... so...

What you need to code is a datafile where objects save on every few minutes and on every copyover. Basically, it just saves the object as a line of data, then when the game reboots it reads those lines and turns it into an object.
