While most age variables are stored into the age state itself, the counter for the journey cloths is stored into an avatar specific part of the vault database called the "ChronicleFolder". This is why one does not lose journey cloth progress when deleting the Relto book of the age they were found in.

I could be wrong but AFAIK no user age has used the chronicle folder yet.

About a year ago (!) I proposed a model to Cyan which stores variables for a user age into its own subfolder within the main chronicle folder so that it is always clear to the vault administrator which variable belongs to which user age. Full details of this proposal can be found at the .

I don't know if my proposal has been archived along with the old MOUL support database. :( The last I heard was that it would be brought to the attention of the (then) MOUL developers. So I hope that it is at least gathering dust in a corner of Chogon's desk. :wink:

I finally read through this whole thread. I understand the reasoning behind the very strict rules. It's all to keep the continuity of the canon story intact, except for rule #5 with is just legal protection. I can't imagine Cyan wouldn't give us objects and textures to use. We are working for them, in a way. So besides trampling on copywrite laws, why should they put all these restrictions based off of the minute details of the series mythology. It was created over 15 years on 2 different mediums with a lot of collaberators. Things are done out of design necessity that become part of the story.

We are making these little projects for the enjoyment of this community and whom in this group is going to get confused by some fan fiction? If an age is good enough and if the Myst series is continued or republished, then there's a sliver of possibility that some fan ages could be included. I know some people who are dying to make an URU Myst Island, but that can't be done. More people would love to open up some doors in the city and expand it. Not in some remote part that needs to be linked to, but the full walkable city. Fix the spiral staircases in the museum and in Great Shaft. Like I said, I respect the logic behind the rules, but allowing some otherwise denied ideas into another catagory might not be such a bad idea.
