Lots of TMI errors lately

Looks like sparky spawn is having issues with the onenter script somewhere, I have been seeing this error an awful lot today:

I am thinking this may have to do with the temple of Sorgath in the NW prairie....

And yes, it appears that after I asked folks to avoid the temple, the errors (and the lag) went away.

Temple needs a bug-check, methinks. I bet it has something to do with traps spawning or the Serpent Disciples.

I think this one is from the Macedone Trade District:



And this one is from the Macedone High District:

When I entered the inner temple today, I experienced game-crashing lags and slowdowns. Many of the disciples were invisible and sometimes a group spawned in a cleared area after going to the next one.

I've been frequently seeing that error for days also, maybe even a couple weeks, since before the last event.  Set off by other players, as I haven't been any place lately that set it off.

Yesterday I saw it happening again, and asked around.  Manny said that his character walking around in Macedone Trade District seemed to be causing that rash of it.

I'm currently overhauling the commoner spawning, which appears to be the biggie with those errors.  I had written this nice set of scripts that would help randomize NPC commoners. give a mix of races based on each region, yet still keep regional looks (via colors or styles), and account for winter weather and time of day, but the more commoners that spawn in, the more chance the system bogs down from sheer numbers of loops/calculations/etc.

The new, new version will simply pick from a bunch of premade commoners instead of generating them on the fly.  More work up front, but should make for faster spawning and fewer script runs (and fewer TMIs).

After the commoners simplification, I'll look more into the spawning system for other NPCs to see if there's anything that can be done with the higher numbers of enemies that get spawned for higher level PCs.
