 Post subject: Import/Export Map: Experimental Feature?
PostPosted: Tue Feb 13, 2018 11:52 am 
So, I want to start making heavy use of this feature and am concerned about the warnings I get when using it.

What, exactly, is so experimental about it? What bugs/errors should I be looking for when using it? Does it have a propensity to break something in particular or does it have a problem importing/exporting something in particular?

I don't want to figure out a month (or more) from now that something serious got wrecked and then have to try and roll back or upgrade some old campaign file.

I'm not sure what exactly is the concerns with the feature. I use it all the time and have not noticed any issues. Note that these are typically maps of locations with minimal or no VBL but sometimes they are complicated maps.

I don't see the feature vanishing any time soon and I use it extensively.

I'm not worried about it vanishing... I'm wondering what the concerns were that warranted the warnings it produces.

I know Azhrei said one of his concerns had to do with FOW, but that was resolved when jfrazierjr did the FOW rewrite.
I am not aware of any issues materialising, so I think you have little to worry about :)

Cool. I'll proceed unabated.

I wouldn't be too concerned with FoW having an issue... that's easy enough to reestablish. I was, however, concerned about something that might lead to campaign file corruption or something that might blow-up in the middle of a game session.

Yep, we'll take the warning out in the next release.
