I Can't be definite, but there are many reported bugs with 1.6.0 This might be one of them.

Yes, this is a bug in 1.6.0 that appears when you move maps around.
You can fix this by opening the "MapInfos.json" file in the "data" folder of your project using Notepad (or Notepad++).

In the .json file you will see a list of items that look like this:
Code:
{"id":1,"expanded":true,"name":"TESTMAP","order":1,"parentId":0,"scrollX":819,"scrollY":468}
Ignore "expanded", "scrollX" and "scrollY".
  • "order": this defines the order in which your map will show up in the hierarchy. Make sure the topmost map is 1, followed by 2, then 3, etc.
  • "parentId": this tells you which map is the parent. The default is 0 (no parent). The number must match the "id" of the parent map. If you're unsure what "parentId" to set, 0 should be safe.
  • "id": it's the id of the map. DO NOT change this. Use it to find out what number to put in "parentId" of another map.
The problem you're experiencing is the following:
RMMV messed up the "parentId". There's a map somewhere, whose parent is either its own child, or child's child.
The editor doesn't know how to handle this: If A is the parent of B, but B is also the parent of A, how do I display this?

So you need to fix this yourself.
Make sure to watch the "order" as well. A child's "order" must be a larger number than the parent's (the child is below the parent), and you can't have a map in-between unless that map is also the child (or child of child) of the same parent.

So the following hierarchy:

Start
- A
B
- C
- - D
- E

would look like this:

Start ( order: 1, parentId: 0 )
A ( order: 2, parentId: id of Start )
B ( order: 3, parentId: 0 )
C ( order: 4, parentId: id of B )
D ( order: 5, parentId: id of C )
E ( order: 6, parentId: id of B )

Like I said: if you're unsure what to do, set "parentId" to 0.
