MUDs with graphical/custom client?

Hi there,

I'm new to this forum and was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions on MUDs that use a custom/graphical client as the only option for play(i.e. you can't connect through MUD clients like zMud). Preferably with some kind of mapping system as well.

Much appreciated!

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

You might check out the mud I am developing. Caimen.org :: Adam Rochford Project Site , there is no way to create a character but you can login with test and password test. Or you may post on the forum asking for an account. This MUD is only 3 months into development, but the basics are there.

Archons of Avenshar

Completely playable though in early stages so light in content. Very much worth a look.

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

I am working on one, although the content doesn't conform to standard Diku-MUD content. It'll be more puzzle oriented, with lots of NPC interaction. (You could use the toolkit to create a DikuMUD clone if you really wanted.) What is CircumReality?

Our dragonmaw client (under development, but functional).
Sharūne II - Rise of the Damned

And to try one of the most advanced clients around check out BatMUD:
www.bat.org | The official site of BatMUD

(We've been involved in development of both clients).

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

Lands of Hope only allows play through the graphical client... it's web-based, so you play it through a browser, or we have a stand-alone client available for download. It's Windows-only, however.

The two biggest are:

They both have a custom graphical client (you can't connect via zMUD) and they both have mapping systems.

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

Are we sure the thread creater is asking for a Graphical GMUD? Or is he asking for a TMUD with a personalized client? I mean, why would you come here to ask for a game like WoW?

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

I think he's asking for something more like Archons of Avenshar where the interaction with the game is still done almost solely through text but the client is custom and fit only to that game. (And Avenshar has a graphical map, too!)

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

I saw this thread and thought I'd pop in to point out The Eternal City as an option here. TEC's got several unique clients available as options: a Java-based client (their oldest client), as well as newer clients based off ActiveX, Flash, and Mozilla. It's hosted by Skotos.net, which means you'll get access to several other (at least five) MUDs with the same account, all of which are played via customized graphical clients as well, and allowing you many different options depending on your preferred style of play.

Re: MUDs with graphical/custom client?

After seeing this thread,I started playing Archons and I have to say that so far it is a well done game with great potential.
I recommend this game to all

Well, I dunno. He asked for a MUD that "uses a custom/graphical client as the only option for play." WoW and Runescape certainly fit that bill insofar as they're MUDs to me (though not text MUDs). On the other hand, options like Batmud (which is accessible via any client using the telnet protocol) do not fit the bill.
