Re: Real vs. Virtual

virtual numbers are the numbers that you assign to the roomsm/mobs/objs
#0->#32000 (or whatever it is set at)
once the mud boots, it re-numbers the rooms, according to which ones exist
from 0->32000 as well, but this time if there is no virtual room #30 then 
virtual room #31 becomes real world 30 and if there is no 32 33 becomes 
31, etc, etc filling in so that there are no gaps
there are functions for translating back and forth i think
