Change message on partial heighten senses, this sounds silly: "Other augmentation prevents you from seeing in the infrared spectrum right now." Prevents me from seeing? But I already do!

for portal type objects in areas, it would be neat if the action syntax 'enter' could be changed at builders descretion, could open up quite a world of possibilities, imagine, taking the portal object giving it a keyword of vine and changing the 'enter' action to 'climb'. Then people would have to climb vine to get to the next room.

it would. not now.
MiNDeSTo

2004-01-10 21:10:27
If thats possible it would also be nice if you could make object portals non refomable without having to make the entire room nospell. Another way might be to make a portal reform spell for just that and remove the chance of a regular cast portal to reform an existing portal. Or only make nexuses reformable. Thanks

level 2: Have portal spell check to see if the portal which already exists in the room has a timer. If it does not, then the spell will automatically fail.

allow some type of mobs to cross into different areas or leave their areas to chase you and hunt you down, also, is it possible to code it so that relogging does not make the mob forget you? so that they'll chase you down anyway

both are already possible, I believe.

wish you would imp something that tells you how much of an area you have explored and how much of the mud you have explored :)

all my ideas have been thrown in the scrap pile so i dont know how well this one will go over. Giants need a higher Dexterity. They have nice HP, but when they get hit like they are sprites it does no good. I have 3.5k hp and I get aggied more than any character I have seen. I die before the sprites. What is the point in going through the trouble of running a gia war to have a Sprite?

giants don't need a higher dexterity. your problem is that you think in terms of how you can make your characters better rather than how to make the game better. until that changes, your ideas won't fly.

Rogues should be able to hide behind furniture objects, making them invisible to all in the room if done sucessfully. Thanks.

hide is pretty effective...the problem is that you can't do anything else you unhide. Unless something happens soon, you void out. It's fruitless. I like the idea...I just don't see a point in building upon hide since we're not a pvp mud.

A spell to affect how fast alignment will change from evil - good and vice-versa that reduces add(Evil)-subtraction(Good) from killing different-aligned mobs. Clarification of spell/skill : Slowdown like racial-evil. (More of a 'need'; this will be 'no' but I wanted to suggest it anyways.)

Removing alignment is a big job and I'm not sure when it will be phased out. This is a nice spell. What you suggest is unbalancing, obviously. I'd much rather make the victim more alignment sensitive.

Level 3: hypermorality Spell: Alignment changes upon killing mobiles is double what it normally is.

'Help hold' suggests that hold command will put a weapon in your offhand position (as opposite to wield command). Contrary to that information the hold command seems to work exactly like wield, ie if I have no weapons equipped it will put the weap in main wield instead of offhand. I would suggest that the working of this command be corrected and not the help file, as currently there seeems to be no way t

level 3: do_hold should only place items in the hold slot. Level 3: do_offhand should only place items in the offhand slot. Level 3: do_wield should only place items in the wield slot.

Wear command can stay the same where it places it where it feels appropriate.

You sure you want me to play with locate object? Level 3: Locate Object revision. Locate object should not include any items that other players are carrying. Locate object should not say who is carrying an item but instead it should say what area the object is in. If you're in the same area, it will tell you the room it is in.
