You'd have to stick to easily quantified and verified items.  For example, our game has a class of objects called "furniture", but I readily admit that we haven't done very much with them.  If a checkbox was just marked "Furniture?", probably 95% of all games have chairs and tables somewhere, even if they're largely window dressing.   And if they didn't, they could whip up some cheap-ass furniture code in an hour just so they could make their feature list look cooler.  And if you make the terms too specific ("Player customizable furniture"), either the list will be unwieldy or you'll exclude quality implementations that don't fit in such a narrow box.

My gut instinct is that the frustration of dealing with people "powergaming" the system (or just lying) would outweigh its benefits and devalue the tool.
Yep, sadly. That's why I prefaced my suggestion with "I did have a thought on features, but then I realized that people would simply exagerrate that as well." Hence my general disgust with the way people market their MUDs. Most make mountains out of molehills, not even impressive molehills either.

Take care,

Jason

This possibly takes the award for most childish, pointless, and outright trollish response I have ever seen. Congratulations, you are an idiot. Now have a cookie and let the grown ups talk.

We are having a great time with furniture! The choices are endless, the roleplay is fun and adds so much to the lands not to have to sprawl on the ground anymore just to sit down. It's the most fun thing in my mind thats been added in a long time.

Seems like features are being added daily and being able to arrange them just adds to the ambiance

Kudos to the IRE team!

Somebody has to make a mesh of that. I guess I could use the Darkman mesh, provided that they put it in FFV3R.
