Is it possible to save-out the states of npc instance-objects,
something akin to a world configuration file, and then have the file reload all the instance-states on server start-up?
We have a small rpg, lets name it "Cliche" (or something sarcastic like that :P). Cliche has a single map, with guards roaming around. When the Cliche server is shutdown, the positions and health of all the NPC guards are saved out to a world configuration file. When Cliche is started back up, the data in the world configuration file is loaded into the game, and the NPC guards assume there previous positions on the map.
Is this possible?
