    Yes.  Personally mapped rooms are overridden when the map updates.  We need to find a hero that knows how to merge personal and updated maps.

    So what we need is to classify Player added maps and game made maps seperatly. Then we could overlay the old map with the new map and have the values of the game made maps updated but leave the player made maps alone.

    How one would do this I have no idea

    This is where the code of the script is: https://github.com/IRE-Mudlet-Mapping/ire-mapping-script

    You can tag rooms with userdata, see functions for that here: https://wiki.mudlet.org/w/Manual:Mapper_Functions

    Someone needs to step up to code it in

    Another way I think would be to be able to unlock player made maps, then lock them when your done creating them and have them save as a different file that wont update with the main map update.

    Yeah.  Tricky part is.. the map is downloaded as a flat file.  Need to figure out how to merge the player made portions and the other.

    Would it work to make it so that all the player made maps is one file and the main map from the game is another? and set an opacity of one of them?

    You might already be using a "player-made" map, the crowdmap. So you'd need to differentiate between the different types of player maps too.
