Re: Redesigning MUME.org web page

Ortansia designed some layouts for the new website that I'm cross-posting here from Elvenrunes. I then took Mandor's time script and simplified it to just display the season . I believe Ortansia is now working on getting someone to transfer her designs into HTML and CSS. What is the position of the ...

Why MMOs Fail (Tabula Rasa, Age of Conan, etc)

No, these games failed because their developers let it happen.

MUME Time Reset

The one ring was destroyed in the year 3019 and Sauron defeated. In the game it is currently the year 3002 so the time of Sauron's defeat is rapidly approaching. I believe that upon reaching this year the game has previously reset to an earlier time period (and that this reset has now occurred five ...

Re: powwow subs

This isn't exactly what you want, since I use regular expression to match for any of the directions and then leave the text as it is. #action %+arrived ^(.+) has arrived from (above|below|the west|the east|the north|the south)(.+)={#print (\$2 + " has ARRIVED FROM >> " + \$3 + \$4 + " <<")} #action ...

Re: PowTTY updates?

I'm pretty certain the only patches done were the ones already available on Elvenrunes. There are a lot of bugs, but I haven't been able to track them all mostly due to how confusingly powwow is written. For starters, I know that the buffer gets corrupted when you try to edit written text and that t...

Re: Age System

Yes, this system would make more sense for pukes (although I would still welcome anything for darkie lowbies). Ultimately this boils down to a problem of how much work do the coders want to do :-)

Re: Age System

What I would really LOVE to see is a lowbie-only FOY somewhere out west (perhaps in Valinor?). I have a ton of level 6-18 characters who I would really rather not mob or be forced to find a group of legends who take pity on me to FOY them. Even reducing the age-reset time for retired lowbies from a ...

Re: Survey: World problems

Perhaps freshly popped mobiles should give a lesser form of mobdeath? I know that the vast majority of experienced player mobdeaths usually revolve around unexpected mobpops which really isn't fair. :-)

Re: How do we groom new leaders of MUME?

In my personal experience it is that even with the ability to make changes the lower level ranked gods still do not have the power to add the changes to the game. As Timodeus mentioned people have varying levels of available time that they are willing to devote to this game. Coincidentally, it also ...

I'm pretty certain you can buy one in Harlond at the General Store. You can also try the Trapper that is on the trail leading to Forlond.

Re: mmapper2 arda.mm2 (linux x86_64)

The map included with the latest version of mmapper2 should be okay in that area (I remember re-mapping it a couple months ago).
