Subj: Moving House Rooms

I've added a new command for house owners to allow you a little more flexibility in rearranging your house while still preserving the constraints imposed by automapping.

You can now move rooms around in your house by doing HOUSE MOVE ROOM <dir> TO <new dir> OF <room>. It will cost 10,000 gold (the same cost as creating a new exit in your house).

This will disconnect the room that is adjacent to your current location in the direction that you specify, and then immediately reconnect it in the new direction from some other room in the house.

Here's a quick example:

I am standing in one portion of my house and there is a room to my north. I want to move that room to the south of a different room (JESSE_HOUSE_3) in a different portion of my house. I would enter the following command: HOUSE MOVE ROOM NORTH TO SOUTH OF JESSE_HOUSE_3.

This command should only allow you to move rooms that will still be able to mapped with all exits having a length of 1. It should not allow you orphan any rooms so that they are no longer connected to the house. If you have any trouble or experience any confusion at all when trying to work on the layout of your house, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
