On Test, I've started testing a different method of organizing and loading maps into the Server of only tieing maps to a Continent and special code in the server for how to handle things, we're using a World.def file to group maps within a continent and which continent they belong. This also will allow us to define on a per map group "Realm" basis stuff that in the past the server couldn't handle or was hard coded into the server. This includes but not limited to where #beam sends you, where you go when you die, where you respawn after leaving UW, where you arrive in Portals, etc as well as other options. This even will ba able to affect Joker hints.

To get an early preview, on Test the Compass location client has been modified to identify what Continent & Realm you are in (such as "Alroth:Dwarven Lands") with making any changes to the map definitions. Other uses will be going live in the future, including additional JokerHints and features to help IM's.

When in DL, #beam me now sends you to the LD Dock area. If it has problems of any type (such as too crowded), then you end back at the IP Beam location. The Beam destination is now adjustable per Realm and the destination can be a list of locations, not just one fixed one.
