Loot level 0 is supposed to indicate starting gear appropriate to your class, but for some reason the skeleton at the start of Weeping Mountain is set to 1. Maybe it's the EMPTY values in the rest of the contents slots that cause this behavior? But I assume you replicated them as well...

In fact, the starting items in Book II don't use loot level 0, either. I wonder where xolotl got that information.

I've tried replicating the skeletal remains but cannot get the same results as above. Is it possible or is there something unique about the Weeping Mountains map?
That starting gear is hard coded. You select your Class, and the program fills in the contents of that "container" upon starting the game. Sorry- it's just another way I streamlined development at the expense of flexibility.
