Advanced Topic - Doing it differently.

Ah, I changed vnums to a long a long time ago, I was just wondering because
when I tried to load my wilderness vmap (2 billion rooms), the mud would
segfault.  Was figuring it might have been a problem either in my coding, or
in memory and moved on for now.

The most common "issue" with having a lot of vnums is the size of the vnum
field itself. I believe there is some information on the ROM FAQ

And in the archives.
