Is there a character limit on the descriptions we create for our ships' rooms?

I believe it's a BLOB or a TEXT field, which would mean 21,844 characters.

Thanks, Mikel.

We'll test it out and see where it breaks what the max is.

Update, courtesy of the dashingly mustachioed Flint Taizo:

I just tried 45k+ and it accepted it all. The page formatting was.... odd, but it appeared to all be there based on some markers I put in. 


I doubt many people will feel a need to write eight full-sized pages worth of descriptions. But it's good to know they can if they want.

Doesnt go by char length. If it is a Blob, Text field the max size is around 65K bytes. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/storage-requirements.html
