[3.5-dev] Friends/escorts and vaults

In the latest version, there's no check to ensure that friends/escorts of monsters in vaults are also generated in the vault. In older versions, they would be generated in the vault, or not at all. This was probably the case with special rooms too (an unique in the central 1x1 square of a special room would be generated without escort).

Do you think this change is a bug or could be left alone as a feature?

I think it looks pretty silly when e.g. Lokkak's friends are outside the vault and he is inside it. It looks a bit like they've got lost.

Or maybe they are the perimeter guards? That makes some sense.

As long as the escorts can reach their escortee I don't have a problem with it. But when there's a solid wall between them, it does look rather odd.
