Actually, I don't think you follow at all.  Initially, it would load 4
mobs and then 3 each additional zone reset.  However, the mob with item
number 512 would only load with that item if every other mob of that
type were killed.  Otherwise, an attempt to kill the mob with the item
will simply result in another mob replacing it that doesn't have the
item.  Like I said (and you failed to quote):

A MUD I know of did this many years ago.  It goes by the name of
Tempered Steel and is located at telnet://  I
believe they refer to the feature as "world max".
