"MUNDI" DISPLAY OPTIONS - 19/06/1988 <---------+ ==================================== | | My sister's birthday! Well my people, the display option command come in pairs: (1) Verbose/brief - display either the long or the short location descriptions respectively. Eventually, "superbrief" will take on the functionality of "brief", and "brief" will be such that the full description is listed only when the location is first entered. This will then become the default. (2) Objects/noobjects - Either do or do not display the list of objects in the current location. It has been (accurately) pointed out that you need to be entirely made of wood to want "noobjects", but you never know, we might get someone coming in on a 300 baud line, who *really* wants to cut down the amount of text he is being fed. (3) Exits/noexits - Again, it's pretty obvious. These items tell MUNDI either to display or not to display the list of obvious exits from your current location. "Noexits" looks more like mist, but is utterly hoopless. "Exits" tells you all you need to know, and unlike mist "exits", doesn't lie to you? (4) Allexits/uniqueexits - Cunning one, this. If "allexits" is set, then literally every exit from the current location is listed (if any of them are - if "noexits" is also set, you still get frog all). If you set "uniqueexits", then only one of a set of exits leading to the same destination is listed. This means you don't get misleading location descriptions with loads of spurious exits. (This isn't to say I can't fix it like that if I want! Hehehe) (5) Numbers/nonumbers - IFF you are a wiz, then "numbers" will allow you to see the number and Wizname of the current location along with the description and suchlike. If you are a mere mortal, you are denied this privilege, because, let's face it, you don't really need to know them, do you? <6> <ignore|notice> shout | global | all Whether you want to listen to global messages (informative), or shouted messages (from other players). Kinda usefull if you want to chat and not be disturbed too much. The default settings when you come in are: verbose; objects; exits; uniqueexits; nonumbers Notice that these options are saved along with your character - hoopy no?
