Mud builder?

Are there any websites that have the basics of a world already built that I can edit and make my own? I am looking for something where the coding is already done and I can go in and add my own room configuration and descriptions and races and classes etc. At one time I had found such a thing but the link I have is now dead. I think it was called mudbuilder or something like that.

Re: Mud builder?

Do you mean where all the work is done on the website and you don't have to host anything yourself?

Re: Mud builder?

I'm looking for something that has all the code in place where I can go in and build my own world. I once had a link to a website that did exactly this. I tinkered a little bit with it, creating some rooms and playing around with the stock NPC's but I didn't really have anything fleshed out yet for what I wanted to create. When I finally got most of my plans and ideas down on paper I went back to the web link but it no longer worked, I assume the website is no longer in business.

I'm sitting on a whole lot of information and I am looking for a creative outlet to make it into something rather than dozens of pages of word documents. I have history, races, classes, NPC's, room descriptions, items, notable people and locations, etc. I think I have just about everything I need to start creating a world.

Assuming you don't want to go through this again and again, why not simply learn how to run your own server? It is really not that hard, it allows you to pick any codebase you like, and to eventually turn it into the game you want.

I believe I recall the mudbuilder website. I remember it being rather basic, and I'm not sure it even auto-instanced a server for you--it's quite possible that it was running a single multi-tenant server in some kind of more permissive content creation mode, like The Builder Academy does (TBAMud). And you definitely don't want *that* if your goal is to have your own game.

That might be the information I'm looking for. I'll look more into that when I get home from work. I'll assume when you say "it's not that hard" you mean anyone can do it.

I've seen that website and that's not the one I was referring to but i'll take another look at it and see what it does.

Re: Mud builder?

Well I may be a bit late here, but I came across this MUD engine as well a while back. The demo looked pretty interesting, and I think it may still be in "beta" mode, but it may be worth a shot :P

Happy mudding, and I look forward to seeing if you complete your project, good sir!

Re: Mud builder?

I abandoned my game astria which is very dependant on a graphical, windows editor, where absolutely no coding is require to create spells, entities, rooms, maps, items. You can place anything made into rooms or items (like an ability can be linked to an item easily)

And one thing that i thought of doing, but didnt, before i gave up completely, was to make the editor greater to the point where i could release it, the client, and server,

as a bundle package for developers and players.

So the editor could configure stuff like the server, class names and what abilities are linked to classes, etc

If you have any interest send me a msg id like ideas, and im debating what to do with the code

as of now its basically down to

1. nothing
2. releasing the source-code at its state
3. releasing editor/client/and editor for players to make their own servers and worlds
4. finding a theme for the game (with a fanbase that would enjoy a mud for it)
with help of writers, and continuing. (my last post)

oh a screenshot of the current editor server and client
