Last things first: the idea of storing separate routines in different files sounds nice - especially as the creator and adventure software will be distinct, but share certain functions. How is this achieved?

As for the use of CircleMUD or the like: I don't know any C, despite other hacker friends singing the 'Code in C' filk irritatingly, and I don't want to overburden myself, as I'm already dealing with a new job and learning Swedish. Moreover, lots of MUD software I've seen has ignored the 'zero-one-infinity' rule, and allowed for, for example, at most six exits from a location, each with a fixed name. I want _very_ flexible exits - preferably allowing more than one with the same name, and a descriptive menu to allow you to choose between them. (This is partly because I want the spell fly to have some real application, and I'm somewhat unwilling to code separate locales for the airspace over every street-level area. Consequently, the option to have ten or so exits called 'down' would be a plus.) And the magic system is going to be as close a port of D&D 3e's system as I can manage (probably by having the spell file call routines via eval, and keeping the spell effect routines in a distinct file, as suggested.

Thanks!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
