I just don't understand why folks have so much trouble with creating online
creation code - I added complete online creation into Archipelago (circle
2.2 based)
all menu driven, Zone, Object, Mob, World and Shop.  It's just not that hard
granted there is a large amount of grunt coding to do but it's just plug and
grind.  Our online creation has been working smoothly for over 18 months now.

Ich habe Dinge gesehen, die ihr Menschen niemals glauben wuerdet. Gigantische
Schiffe, die brannten draussen vor der Schulter des Orion. Und ich habe
C-Beams  gesehen - glitzernd im Dunkeln nahe dem Tannhaeuser Tor. All diese
Momente werden verloren sein in der wie Traenen im Regen.
