#const does not mean construction, it means constant. It's used so that one can refer to a named item instead of an arbitrary number. Thus, #const LAND_MOUNTAIN 7; then if LAND_MOUNTAIN then SNOW.

Ah, who cares about that. I thought it meant construction, becasue that sounded like the best word for me, and besides, in the file they're talking about numbers anyways. And constant numbers sound strange by me.

WOW ! Well done Raymond. This will make a big difference to the RM scripting community. :)
BTW - did you try negative numbers as well? The AI community has been doing the same kind of exercise, and have found that the range of undocumented constants extends negatively as well ! Might be worth trying ?

This is an excellent utility. It is clear that the author spent lots of time testing these numbers. It is a very useful utility, and I plan to use it for many of my random map scripts. Thanks for a great tool.
