Allright, I think I know what your saying but I'd like a few more clarifications. I think I understand what your saying about the data storage. You would have an array of arrays for the x and y coordinate. You could then say $foo[x][y] and have that be a hash full of data about that piece of terrain (please correct me if I'm wrong).

My real question is: how would you propose I store this in a database? I've only been working with databases for a short time so I'm not that great at designing them yet.

    Check out 121098, which is a second reply I made to your original node. That gives an idea on how to store this in a DB.
