Any way to reach the hidden shopping area?
I already checked all the hatches & trapdoors on the up and down floor. There was 1 temporary teleport trap, which I tried.
I could read tele until it works, but I doubt it'll be worth it.
I wouldn't even have known about the shops if I hadn't had to read ?mapping because I got shafted.

They're merely arches.

Yes, nothing in there. These days you could crack this place open with Shatter, but it's not worth it. Don't even ignore it!

Well thanks for telling me.
Maybe this vault should be redesigned :shock:

Do people like arches? I can see the argument that, when present, they make it harder to find timed portals, which might be desirable. But they're essentially just a mimic that only fools magic mapping, which strikes me as a weird effect.

Re: how to access hidden shops

Arches are useful features to represent things like "there was a portal here, but it's gone now" and as flavour. Perhaps they shouldn't show up with magic mapping.

I submitted a pull request to fill in the middle of this vault. It's a vestigial location from back when cTele existed, I think.

Re: how to access hidden shops

I guess as ex-portals they make sense.
