: This question made me curious, so I checked the original implementation. The
: internal constants have different names than Hopper chose, but it looks
: like the do-not-disturb sectors have the effect of preventing monsters
: from activating if the player rests nearby. Normally resting will trigger
: any monster within 8 sectors so it can run over and give you a rude
: awakening, but monsters placed on a sector of that type will be skipped.
: The intent on Ascension is probably to keep the monsters from bunching up
: around the door if you rest in the room just before the pipes.

: (Disclaimer: I haven't actually loaded up Ascension in-game to double-check
: this.)

Interesting. There are two other places that have the same sectors (Lock&Load and Warning: Earthquake Zone), both in areas with a lot of monsters. On Ascension it doesn't seem like it would make much a difference, since zombies respawn fast enough on the floor that you can't really rest anyway.
