Since their inception user-defined fields are limited to integer values. UDMF spec says nothing about this thing though.

In that case, can this ticket's status be changed to a feature request? Being able to set string fields on a map thing seems to be something more than one person would try to do eventually...

The issue I'm seeing is that, if this is the standard for UDMF support, it might screw with the UDMF format itself. I dunno how quick the other adopters will be to incorporate this feature, and I worry what that might mean....

That said? The ability to put string data in is probably something the UDMF format should've had, and wouldn't really deviate from the format, nor would it be that hard to add for someone who knew how ZDoom managed that data...
