That part would be no different with the max set on objects and mobiles.
Since you would still load the mob in 4 different places, and is the
mob_max was set to 12 it would load 4 more next zone repop.

What would be more interesting is a system that saved of the number of a
certain item actually loaded, both in game and in rent. That way a true
maximum of the item could be achieved. I wonder if anyone has created
such a system and would be willing to share a little info about how they
went about that.

Also a room maximum for mobiles would be a good thing to have due to the
fact that when you for instance have your classic 4 gate town north east
west south, and want 2 guard at each you could basicly set a room
maximum of 2 and a max of 8. Problem with current system is that if you
don't place the load maxxes just right in the right rooms, you will end
up having no guards at the south gate and 4 at the north gate.

Anyways it's just some ideas I been thinking about and would love some
input on this matter for and against.

Best Regards
