There is a MUD running on mcpubs.com port 2860. Partly to re-live the 80s and partly as an experiment with linking it to a VR world.
Come join! There is a web interface at https://coding.openguide.co.uk:2860/
You can create any object using the
@create command, for example:
@create a comfortable leather armchair
The object will now be in your inventory. You can view your inventory by typing
i. If you wanted to leave it for others to find you'd have to drop it, like so:
drop a comfortable leather armchair
If someone stops to look at it, they won't learn much more than it's name. You can embellish this description using the
@desc a comfortable leather armchair = a brown leather armchair that looks a little worn, but very comfortable
The system already tries to save you some typing, so you could shorten 'a comfortable leather armchair' to any of the words you used in the name, e.g.
look armchair would refer to the same item.
Unless I've already given you the right access level, you'll only be able to create seperate areas (and I can link them into the main world).
To create an area, you use the
@dig command. Here is a basic example:
@dig My House
You've now created an area called My House. It'll inform you that this is now room #123 for example.
You can teleport there and look around:
@teleport #123 look
You won't see anything if you haven't added a description. Do that now:
@desc here = You are standing in a room with plush red carpets.
Now you are in a room with plush red carpets, but no exits! Create a new room, but this time, since you are now in a room you own (My House), you can use the dig command to specify how to link the rooms together.
@dig Watchtower = Ladder,Firepole
This creates a new room (area) called Watchtower which you can access from My House by using the 'ladder'. When you are in the Watchtower you can return to My House by using the firepole.
