As part of the building of an object library for the mud we need to gather details about the state of things already in play.

The tool /players/fantom/obj/recorder/recorder.c can be used by players to record the shape of all the monsters in the mud.

The tool provides the 'body' command and should be used when in the room with a monster for whom the details need to be recorded.

The command body <monster> lists the existing details of the monster.

The command body <monster> humanoid tail horns hooves would define monster as being humanoid (head/torso/arms/legs) with a tail, horns and hooves.

The command body <monster> -tail noears would remove the tail and add noears.

All changes are logged.

NEW There is now a body all command to list the details of all monsters in the room, this is useful for determining what has yet to be done.

Add suggestions below.

* Another question I had, will -leg2 remove leg2 off the base of a reptile (leg4,tail) or will that only subtract if a leg2 attribute was added extra? -- TuKaN - 22 Feb 2005

Parts yet to handle



I'm compiling a list of recorded areas to help the recorders.

Completed areas:

Remaining areas unconfirmed. I'm checking them all myself to make sure they are all correct. I've spent a couple hours each day.

The recorders: Jinx (Ninja,) Metallica, Poeun (Cuddles, me.) -- LuCid - 27 Feb 2005
