This seems liek a classic pseudo random "virtual room" problem as we've
discussed many times.  If your world is egenrated off of a pseudo rando
mseeded from, say, the interstelalr "coords" of the world then it doesnt
ahve to be stored, it can be recreated at any time. Instead justs tore the
lcoatiosn of moveable obejcts dropped on or mvoed aroudn that world.
