I just don't understand why folks have so much trouble with creating online
creation code - I added complete online creation into Archipelago (circle
2.2 based)
all menu driven, Zone, Object, Mob, World and Shop.  It's just not that hard
granted there is a large amount of grunt coding to do but it's just plug and
grind.  Our online creation has been working smoothly for over 18 months now.
