HAH! Every character-based video game out there is a rip off of the paper and pencil D & D, which was a recycle of Chainmail which was based on civil war miniatures rules...which was ... well not hard to get the point...everything is a rip off from life, which is probably a ripoff from some cosm...

It just occurred to me that what I am suggesting here is similar to the recorder discussion elsewhere in that what is appearing is a need for client side extensions/plugins and some basic services in the server build to support and keep that genre of mod consistent and high quality. Once again, I'm ...

Seems to me that the inability to serve images from the game server should not be an obstacle to serving links that the client could then use to pull content from a web server and display in-game...sorry I know I am a "Johnny come lately" here and maybe that has all been explored and dismi...

Perhaps the save files could include the initial save date and connection URL [including port] in the file name? @SFAN, is that reasonable/doable? That would still be no guarantee, BUT it might help significantly with sorting things out, especially if folks start saving from various worlds... [EDIT]...

Just for fun and to learn a bit more about our platform, I've taken the sqllite world file as recorded using SFan's recorder client, through the efforts of Sokomine and Aspiremint (and others?) and set it up as a multiuser game world, under 0.4.6...The world is live on the net, as a simple proof of ...
