This library is now available for download through access to digitalBYOND.

Suggestions are especially appreciated.

Version 1.5:
  • Fixed a bug in SwapMaps_CreateFromTemplate()
  • Added SwapMaps_GetSize() to query a map file for size
  • Added chunk load/save capability

This means the template you're loading has turf types that no longer exist. There's actually an open bug report in BYOND (id:2521435) for this very behavior.

I have trouble using this library, it always tells me it can't create objects from null even though there are no null turfs on the template I'm loading.

I'm not looking for updates... if it still works, I don't think it needs more than that.

Well... the code still works. Although I think Lummox JR has moved on to other things.

Comments from a month ago? Awesome. I was just coming here to make sure this library was current/still functional. :)
