Summary0012616: "Orphaned" locations are not removed from the location list + no way to manually remove them
DescriptionWhen you create a new location from the "Add or choose a location" window, that location is permanently tied to your save. It will never be cleaned up if there no zones assigned to it, and there is no way to remove it from the list. In a late game fortress that may have hundreds of locations; temples, halls, inns, ect... created and removed over the course of play this list becomes full of unwanted entries and near unusable. The only way to keep it clean is to know beforehand exactly what locations you want, diligently reuse as many as possible when that inevitably fails, and never miss-click and create a duplicate location. I don't think this is an intended element of fortress management
Steps To ReproduceCreate a zone, Create a new location for it.
Create a second location for the zone, observe that the first orphaned location still exists.
Delete the zone, create a new one, open the location gui again, observe that both orphaned locations still exist.
Explore the locations window, and location information window and observe that there are no options for deleting existing locations.
TagsNo tags attached.
