In VPK files, I would like to see an option for having any links to vue or vpk files be external to the vpk rather than mashed in, with the external files linked relatively, perhaps with a requirement that they be in the same folder as the parent. That way, the small chunks could be maintained without opening up everything. Relative paths, with perhaps a "same folder" requirement would allow partability to be maintained. The option could be either in prefs or as a checkbox in the save dialog.

As it stands now, an edited nested vpk child map does not update in the master vpk and the changes get lost. see https://vue-forums.uit.tufts.edu/posts/list/0/1172.page#4557.

Yes! The VPK format is currently a bit of a rabbithole -- we use it in order to keep things sharable, but it's very hard to work with the relative links when you move the packages around. Is there a way, for example, to specify that everything is a relative location, rather than have absolute links? And to be able to figure out when something is internally linked ("in the package", and is there a way to make it automatically update?), vs. just an external file that needs to be transported along with the package?

Also, it would be great to get clearer instructions about the implications of transforming from VPK into HTML (e.g. how to get all the layers to export, and remain linked?)
