GreaterMUD / New Feature for PVE realms - Corpses
« Last post by Winterhawk on Yesterday at 12:05:01 pm »
We have added a new feature to PVE realms. When you die your equipment is kept contained in a corpse which only you or someone you trust with a pre-set password can recover. Corpses decay over time (currently set to 72 hours), then spill the contents when the decay period is done. To recover your corpse return to the room that contains the corpse and type recover corpse..specify which corpse if there are more than one. To set a password use the command set recoverpw <pswd> and to remove the password set recoverpw off. To recover a corpse for someone else who has given you the password the command is recover corpse <pswd>.
Corpses can not be robbed, moved , or recovered by anyone but the corpse owner if the password is set to off and they are off by default. Your recover password shows in your profile.
Corpses will keep your equipment safe for 3 days, after that they vanish and leave the gear on the ground where it is fair game for anyone to grab.

3 runic drop to the ground.
16 platinum drop to the ground.
470 gold drop to the ground.

GreaterMUD / Re: Why GreaterMUD and MajorMUD should never be open sourced
« Last post by Greater on September 08, 2021, 01:41:24 pm »
This topic is actually fascinating to read today.  I know this is Graveyard diving to bring it up.  But I actually found it again doing a Google Search of all things.

Interestingly the "Tons of Boards out there without knowing what is what, and what does what..."  Doesn't really hold much water in this case, because there has only and probably will only, ever be 1 GreaterMud.  Now if the engine were released, and other boards could pop up, that would be one thing.

I think the real argument is "I spent a lot of work and don't want people to use that for free, and possibly even come up with a better version." Which I can understand somewhat.

With MMud Explorer out there, and the ability to load in different databases though, you could pretty easily open source without this issue.  Or even DON'T open source, but maybe license out the engine. "It doesn't come with the database, but you can .. probably.. find that somewhere! ;-)" ... Engine is $10 a month (just a random figure)...

New necro record?  ;D
