Mappers & Clients

A program that automatically creates a visual representation of MUME's world is called a mapper.
Usually it allows you to show your current position, the terrain, remembers doors, some mappers allow to display guilds, shops, places of fresh water or other information.

Please note that mappers are neither written nor supported by MUME's coders and management! They are projects by other players! Also read RULES MAPPERS before you use one.

Find out how to connect from your browser or with a client and/or mapper.
