If you removed a zone from the lib/world/* directories, I would bet my
favorite penny that you would want to remove ALL references to the zone
that has just been nuked, both in the code and otherwise.

I'm not quite sure what you're saying here, but I think that you're
talking about spec_procs, and those have nothing to do with the OLC at
all. This was covered in another message, but you need to remove all
ASSIGN_*() statements that refer to the zone that was removed.

Ick. Why write an OLC from scratch when there's Oasis. Yeah, yeah... I
supposed some sick puppy out there might want to write one just to say
that he can. :)  Hell... Maybe I'm that sick puppy, but don't know it
yet. Sounds like something that I might do.
