you would have to get in contact with Ed (the guy who owns/runs/etc Nbos)
because AS and AS2 have as far as I know no way of hooking additional code
into them other then scripts.. plus given AS and AS2 is a commerical product
you'd likely have to license the code from Ed (presuming he was willing

AS was designed as a mapping tool primarly so yeah that is what it is.. it
has xml import and export but *shrugs* you'd want to code in full sql hooks

It sounds to me as if what you're really looking for is not so much
mapping software as a simple Flash-based MMORPG engine.
