*world or *world[MAX_ROOMS_AVAILABLE

Whats the advantage of
struct room_data *world = NULL;
and then later use
CREATE(world, struct room_data, rec_count );

compared to *world[MAX_ROOMS_AVAILABLE]
i.e declare a list of pointers to the max rooms that may be on the mud.

I know I have to switch alot of
world[x].number to world[x]->number.
But will it affect the game in other ways, right now im trying to figure out if i should switch
to the pointer list.

Have anybody done this? Any pitfalls that I should know of?

I wanna do this to make it easier to support virtual rooms, and reuse old rooms in  a
