Few questions about playing on greatermud.com
« on: March 03, 2017, 02:03:58 pm »
Greets. A few questions. In order to play optimally on this BBS, what else besides the basics do I need to succeed? I've spent a couple hours combing these forums and here's what I have thus far.

1 - MegaMUD (latest) & keygen
2 - Winterhawk's Paths
3 - MMExplorer (latest)
4 - Optional Gmud Mega .exe patch
5 - ?!? Further customized gmud paths ?!?
6 - ?!? Custom gmud MMExplorer .dats ?!?

I see a list of additions/changes made or 'to-be-made' to GMUD over the years. However, is there a comprehensive list of what 'exactly' is different from the stock MajorMUD? The more I play the more people point things out and I'm like.. 'oh, I didn't know that', or 'man I wish I'd have known that'. I'm not sure if some of the stuff in the latest changes posts are 'to be' or are already in game. I've read the post about limited item drops and other very basic realm changes.

Thanks in advance. I'm really enjoying the board. Long time player since the 90s off and on. Greatermud is filled with knowledgeable & extremely helpful players. A+ thus far.

A great improvement that GMud has over majormud is the ability to sell/get/give multiple items by number.  For example: Sell 50 shortswords, or Give Player-A 25 black potions, Get 35 fur-lined pouches...etc

There haven't been any updates to the items that I can think of, so the standard MME listing should show the same stats for items in GMud.  There are some spell and combat changes, for example, Quick and Deadly has been replaced with a 6th attack, so you may get 6 swings in a combat round as opposed to 5 in standard mud.  There are a lot of other fine tuning things that are too numerous to mention in a single post.  Best thing to do is keep reading the forums and learning through playing.

We are getting ready to release an update to the Non-PVP realm which will include a substantial list of changes and some new content areas.  All of this will be spelled out in a forum post once they are finalized.  Stay tuned for more info.

All stat maxes have been increased by +40.  I.e. half-ogres get 190 str instead of 150.
