Okay I've now got to level 4, had a chat with various helpful players and done a lot of wandering.
I am liking the world so far in terms of writing and descriptions. At the moment I'm still not entirely sure on skills, since you need a teacher to teach you. I found one and learned the learn skill, but as to other skills, well we'll see. Likewise, I'd like to find out a bit more about roles before choosing, but when I wandered into the thief's guild, though there were several npcs, there was little info on actual thieving.
Oddly enough, I'm less interested in combat in the game, since combat wise there are plenty of games to play, heck if I want to run around and slay things, Erion is proving fun for that right now .
On the other hand, I am interested to see what other roles like the various medical specialisations, theives etc doo, but I am gathering that Triad city is a far more laid back experience so I'm content to wait and see (indeed a laid back experience is sort of what I want right now).
Okay, a couple of brass tacks points about the mud interface, which is after all what this topic was supposed to be for .
First, I am really wishing Triad city a chat history command like several other muds which would reprint the last 10 or so messages from a given chat channel.
When wandering around, or heck just when waiting for my energy to regenerate, I am quite often missing chats or tells, and I don't want to be unintentionally rude.
I gather that on the web interface the chats are in another window, but for a mud where the hole thing comes together, a history command might be nice.
I also wish the "reply" command could be used to reply to the last tell you received, just to speed up always having to type the player's name.
I also wonder if it might be possible to have notifications when you earn experience in text? I gather that these are in an xp bar in the web interface, but sometimes when playing the mud, I'm never sure when an action does or does not give me XP, and it might be nice to get notified, since at the moment if it weren't for the getting started page, I wouldn't realise what would give me XP.
Of course, if this changes and I was say getting XP every minute or so, then maybe I might feel differently, still if XP notifications could be toggled that would be handy.
Lastly, would there be any possibility of having the player's guide available in game somewhere? or heck, maybe getting the helper bot to read sections on request, since whilst I don't mind looking things up in the player's guide when I need to, it's a miner pest to have to change windows and navigate. Also, this might be a personal thing, but when I type the "help" command in a mud and get told "go look somewhere else" it always strikes me as a wee bit unfriendly.
Again, this is just a personal preference thing, and of course, obviously I'm using the mud interface here, not the website.
