There is a simple new command called "contents" that shows the just the contents of a container without having to look at it. Credit to Yennefer for the idea report... er, 6 years ago. Although she hasn't been on in 4 years either. Anyway.

For those of you using written maps you should find that they are now

considerably less spammy, especially in open areas such as city squares and

plazas.


For The Newbiehelpers..., posted on Wed May 19 03:01:48 2010

The hnewbiehelpers command has a new syntax. Use 'hnewbiehelpers context'

to also show the newbie channel history so you can get some idea of what

people on newbiehelpers were talking about.

remotes should now correctly use the color as set in 'options colour

remote' rather than being forced to magenta.


Never Enough Options, posted on Sun Dec 13 05:39:06 2009
Posted by: Presto
Category: Special
A new option has been added: options colour groupmember

Setting this option causes the names of group members to appear in your chosen color in location descriptions. This option overrides the setting for 'options colour playername'.

After a 7 year absence, the 'money' command has regained its ability to

look in containers.


Calendar Command, posted on Tue Jan 20 04:30:39 2009
Posted by: Presto
Category: General
In response to a brief talker conversation the other day, the date lookup options for the 'calendar' command has been changed to allow you to specify a year. This will allow you to match real world dates with MUD dates as far back as the Beginning of Time (Hogswatchday AM year 1966) and as far ahead as the next century.
