Assembling several .map files into one - possible ?

For what it's worth: I saw in some old tdm-campain map that bikerdude tagged his name as a spawnarg in everything that he build in that map. I guess it's good for filtering. So I think if the script can add the map file as a spawnarg to everything (brushes, entities, etc.) that is build in the map file automatically before merging, then in the merged map file you can easelly filter everything out that is build from one map file. Except if there is a better way.

That doesn't work for worldspawn geometry, since it all counts as a single entity so they share spawnargs.

I was thinking about trying to make everything a func_* to keep track of things but I don't know the limits on that.  The numbering convention of things doesn't matter because they're only comments, and duplicate entity names are reassigned on load, which is fantastic, but that may break things like targetnames and other scripting.  Not sure if Radiant takes care of all implications and if not, it would be difficult to track.  So this would only be good for content, not for wholesale functionality.

      All services hosted on the server were sluggish. I've rebooted and it appears to be better. Let me know if there are still issues.

      Who is actually working on new missions right now? That I, the greatest mapper of all times (and I say this in all modesty, it is innate in me) am working on something epochal is clear to everyone by now. But who else is working on new missions? Please let me, your God, know, because it's so depressingly quiet here and I don't like to post pictures all the time, because even for me it gets a bit too boastful (although justified) with time.
