[19:01:26] <Dominus> Marzo: any idea why we seem to be limited to lift 15? KnightCaptain had stuff "falling down" that was above lift 15 (on a reload)
[19:01:56] <Dominus> Pictures in http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=1729955&t=1729955 at the bottom
[21:55:43] <wjp> I think there's only a very limited number of bits for the lift field in the original data files
[21:56:02] <wjp> not sure if we do anything to extend it
[21:58:04] <Dominus> Ah, of course, that would explain it
[22:00:07] <Dominus> Need to look into how the u7ireg files are set up then (pobably mentioned in the ancient docs when the file formats were figured out)
[23:41:53] <Marzo> We do have some extensions in place; I think Exult accepts up to 255 lift using an extended format
[23:41:59] <Marzo> Jeff coded it a while back
[23:42:09] <Marzo> I don't recall how good or bad it was
[23:42:30] <Marzo> I remember computing how many chunks away a sufficiently large tower would cover
