A while ago, there was a thread revealing the Overworld Map feature from TSS. In it, I made a post about the supposed ability to have a map symbol link not to a level or another map, but to the beginning of an entirely separate hold. At the time, I thought it was over complicating things.

My attitude about the matter has changed slightly since then, and now I wonder, did I get the feature cancelled? Is it possible to put another hold on the map, and no one has figured out how yet? And if not, am I the one to blame for it?

I don't recall that conversation, but I don't think you're to blame for having this feature cancelled. It was never in the works, afaik.

Personally, I tend to be on the side of not liking that possibility. Erik and I discussed it back around 2004 (in the context of stair destinations) and agreed to not include it.

Well, we can all get by without it. I think the whole discussion was the result of a misunderstanding anyway.

Yeah, I vaguely remember talking about it. Seems like it wasn't worth all the trouble. And self-containment is good when you want puzzles to not get broken. As soon as you have links to other holds, a change in the linked hold can break your puzzles.

I stand firmly by the Decisions of the Past. Even when I can't confidently remember the reasons. Even if the decision was made by someone else. Even if I was not involved in the decision in any way.
