Not sure where this goes exactly since it's about a beta version of BYOND, but here is my feedback after using the new maptext feature extensively:
I would like two variables to be included with the addition of maptext:
maptext_x, and maptext_y
They would determine the pixel offset of the atom's maptext. Currently, positioning maptext is very difficult and perplexing, even for the experienced users.
I'd also ask that there be default values for maptext_height and maptext_width. Many users are complaining to me about how their maptext is by default invisible because they did not define the height and width yet for their atoms, and it's a pain for me to have to do too.
