Is there a way to send mudlet map data from the mud itself?

Post by Ashlan » Tue Jul 25, 2017 2:12 am

Me and my MUD team are making a custom game mechanics MUD in Evennia (Python). It's going well but we're a little confused when it comes to making maps. An in-game mapping system is one option but Mudlet's mapping system is pretty good too. I was wondering if Mudlet supports anything like auto-map generation?

Sounds like you want an out-of-band data channel like GMCP, IIRC there are some links about that in the Wiki...

Yes, GMCP is the way to go. Check out the Room information IREs send: http://nexus.ironrealms.com/GMCP#Room

With this information a client-side mapper in Mudlet can perform automapping as the person walks around, and also reliably track the players position on the map without getting lost.

If you have any questions about this, please ask - we'd be more than happy to help!
