Good Morning,

First thank you @Dark for putting Classic 6Dragons on audiogames game list.  Recently I have made many bug fixes and upgrades and there are some old players that have returned to give input.  Please feel free to check us out if you haven't.  This game is a mud, and as such you will need a mud client such as jaws, tintin++, or whatever you like to play.

Below are the latest improvements that were completed between 2/18 to 2/20:
    Fixed bug with shrink and enlarge making people negative numbers.
        You automatically start on general board when you type boards as default now instead of auction
         New skill for Beastmaster Pounce!
         New skill for psionics takeover!
         fixed config keep alive to work with all mud clients.
         Added drown.wav to differentiate between swimming sound file and
             drowning.
         Black Dragons get bonus when using tail swipe
         New skill for Bat shape for vampires now occasionally uses bite or feed when fighting like the vampire form.

         
Website http://6dragons.tk    Game is at 6dragons.tk port 4100

Thank you,

Vladaar

Moderation!

Since this  concerns updates to an established game I'll move this to new releases.


Glad you like the db page and that there are more updates with classic six dragons as it is a game I really like myself, I probably ought to fire up my character and see what is happening, although I seemed to have reached a slight empass where quests were concerned as I remember, also I'd love to see the ability to earn extra trade skills so you can try out different trades as one character, and maybe some npc sieges and such since there was a lot about siege warfare but no way of trying it out from what I gathered.
Either way glad to here the game is still up and running and I'll see about popping along to try things out myself.

One final question I do have relates to the relationship between classic six dragons and days of dragons Website here

Which seems pretty much a mod of Classic 6d but with some differences, e.g no beast master, and from what I could gather no soundpack either.

There is a direct link on the db page.

just download the tar.Gz folder, extract the contents twice (don't know why you need to do this twice but you do), then drop the sound folder into the sounds folder in the vipmud directory in documents.

i believe you need the full version of vipmud to play the sounds since it uses msp, but I'm not %100 sure on this

hth.

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

Greetings, apparently https://smaugmuds.org is down so that link won't work until the website domain is back up.

However, I put it up on our server for now.  You can get it directly at http://6dragons.tk/sounds.tar.gz

Thank you for your patience,

Here are some audio reviews, that a few blind players made for me.  It might help hearing their experience.

I also fixed a few more bugs ingame.  It's running rather smooth with our small family like player base.

Well I'm back on the game now and giving things a try.

There are a couple of things I'm finding a bit odd.
The first is quests, since I have the alliance quest to kill a beholder, but it doesn't tell me where to find one, which is a mienr pest after along absence.

Alsoo the "area" command tells me I have a quest in gnome tower. I did the entry quest to get into the tower which was cool, but though I looked through the rest of the tower nobody else seemed to have a quest for me which was odd.
Maybe a "quest nearby" command or something might help, assuming there isn't one already that I forgot about.
I will admit I also want to get past level 10 since it seems I've been level 10 for waaay too long big_smile.

I also wonder if it might be possible to allow characters to have more tradeskills, or get more, since I'd love to try some more trades out, especially to earn cash and get armour as crafting is rather fun, especially with the soundpack.

Lastly I wonder about sieges and how they work and whether you can actually contribute to the sieges, say by going and fighting  soldiers, as palam city was under attack but when I was standing outside the city nothing seemed to happen.

Anyway nice to try out the game again.

hi there!
sorry, can you give me an example how to solve the thing for triple EXP?

Thumbs up

If I remember rightly what you need to do is put in the code omitting the letter.

For example the code would be ftd1flkffe and you'd be asked to enter the code omitting the letter f.

So you'd type every letter in the code accept the f's:

td1lke.

The best way I've found to do this is to go through the code letter by letter and type as I go. The one problem I have run into is sometimes the simples like at sign or hash can be a little odd for me.

Hth.

Lol I found the beholder and it killed me.
Oh well yet more grinding I suppose.

I do wish the game had a better way of finding  to leven the constant hacknslash.

hi... is there a command to check how good/strong our equipments are? , like id command on alter.
also, my char just have 1 class, is that will make the game harder? , or actualy easyer because I just need to focus on 1 class big_smile
and I wish there is  a low level attack skill for shadowknight, taunt isn't useful because I mostly solo, and disarm is also not useful because I usually fight rats or other animals.
and what is beastmaster? no help file for it big_smile

Beastmaster  is another class, I might even try  it at some point.
I can't help with shadowknight as I'm an angel myself, but for equipment you need a feather of knowing, though the compare command works fairly well as  classic six dragons isn't really a gear heavy game the way alteraeon is.

The only main issue I have at the second is quests, since basically you just have to wander around and hope things trigger, which means often I encounter npcs who just won't talk to me for some reason. For example the area map says to go to gnome tower, but though I've completed one quest there, the only npc won't speak to me.

I also would love to see more trade skills usable in the game, especially cooking, carpentry and herbalism, as well as some more info about the cities and how they work since I keep hearing about sieges but am not really sure what to do to either lay siege to somewhere or prevent a siege when it happens.

I think you can collect taxes for your city but I'm not really sure on that one.

@Dark

So you asked about city siege events.

Any citizen of a city can use the laysiege command on another city.  You must be one room away from their gate guards to laysiege and once you do that your attacking forces will form along the walls, and the defending forces for the city your attacking will be on the inside of the city your attacking.  Now every homeland has a secret entrance into it.  So if you find your way in that city you can kill the defending soldiers and use the sabotage command on their siege equipment which can give you the win.

Everyone participating in the event gain glory and some coins.
