0000151: Areas randomly disappearing from memory map when exploring caverns in Adventure mode
As I explore caverns as an Adventurer, I notice that places I've been to vanish from the memory map and I have to explore them again. In large rectangular shape, so may be 48x48 local tiles.
Wander around caverns for a while
adventure mode, Intentional/Expected?, underground

I think it is intentional because it always sticks around near noteworthy sites(such as civ sites and caves). It can be a little annoying when you are trying to find something only to realize that you have been going in circles for the last hour.

I'm pretty sure it's intentional or at least unavoidable, yeah. I don't think it's feasible for the memory map to store all kinds of random wilderness areas.
