What soft protection does is it EOF's various reflexives, leaving a phantom of the original reflexives for people to read instead.
This accomplishes three goals:
- Prevents tags from being directly extracted from the map. This can be from one of three things: destroy the map Eschaton imports the tag into, Eschaton imports a corrupted version of the tag, or importing a soft-protected tag prevents Eschaton from completing the rebuild process.
- Allows tags to still be analyzed by map editors, allowing people to learn from the tags.
- Leaves all tag data intact.
