Summary0005354: Feature: Pointfiles for Debugging of Info_Location Overlaps
DescriptionWhen the info_location system is used for ambient light and sound, after dmap and during the "map <FM>" phase, any info_locations that overlap are so reported to the console as a warning. However, diagnosis of the actual problem cause is difficult.

It is proposed, if technically feasible, to extend the pointfile system to help with this diagnosis. In particular, what is desired is a pointfile that runs between the two info_location objects involved in the overlap, via an info-location-overlap path.

The name style of such pointfiles should be clearly different from that of the visportal pointfiles. A suggestion is:

pointfile_<info_location_name1>_overlaps_<info_location_name2>.lin

It is recognized that, if the naming of pointfiles is modified, a system that cycles through pointfiles automatically in DR, instead of needing manual renaming, could be impacted by this.
