Hi -
Long ago when version R came out, I noticed that on a VS .net 2002 version compiled dawn.exe file, that the very last area created ALWAYS has the "LOADING" OLC flag turned on and it only goes away IF a new area is created and then the new area has the LOADING flag permanently on. This is still true here in beta3 of version S. For example, the LOADING olc flag is currently showing on in the wildernessII (the last stock area created apparently) and if i create a new area, it turns off on wildernessII and turns on permanently in my newly created area. SO in closing, the most recently created area always has this loading flag permanently on. IS there any harm in this? Or is this a bug?
Thanks,
Cert

The OLCAREA_LOADING is a historical flag that isn't actually used for anything by Dawn, it isn't doing any harm, but not required. I will look at removing the flag all together.

Thanks,
