        Of course, it will still update when you eventually log out, save,
etc, unless you've changed your obj_file_elem structure (or don't use it
at all).  Your description, name, etc, will all revert to the original
vnum.  The only things that save are vnum, wornlocation, vals[1-4], extra
flags (enchant, etc), weight, timer, bitvector, and affects.  You'll have
to either add everything else you want, or switch to a different system.

        You could also just make all your objects individual instances;
which may actually save memory on some muds; though you'll want to invest
in a way to load/remove objects quickly.  Oh, and a new obj save
