Topic: Hellcore database released [MOO/MUD]

The hellcore is an extension and improvement to the stock LambdaMOO database.  I know this forum has a few folks interested in MUD or MOO.  You can get it here, thanks to the wizards at hellmoo.org:

http://hellmoo.org/node/6328

It includes everything you need to start your own MOO with the hellcore.  You need a linux machine to compile and run it.  It does not include any HellMOO items, areas, creatures, or content (well... there might be some here and there).

My own MOO project uses this database and it might save you upwards of dozens of hours, and has many neat features.  I hope this information is helpful, as I have seen many players express interest in it.

Re: Hellcore database released [MOO/MUD]

hi, i've downloaded it, thanks very much. i love the game, i haven't played it for a long time,
but it's my top 1 moo/mud. do you know if is there a way that i could download
the complete hellmoo? with areas,items, etc? it would be a dream that came true,
when i read the title of the topic i thought: oh i can't believe i'll be able to play it
offline man, it's so great, so awesome.. i don't have any experience with moo programming, i
just wanted to play it.
but thanks very much for the core!

Hi,

I understand things like area's and items are poofed away, but what did they leave in place? What does still work?
Combat? Shops? Cyberspace? Mutations? Adult stuff?

Re: Hellcore database released [MOO/MUD]

hi baliol!the only thing you will find in this core db is the entire game without the game,
i mean, you could create a new game based on hellmoo, using the same combat system that's
already implemented, create planes, guns, mobs, areas, everything is  already implemented,
but unfortunately the thing that i was also looking forward that's the game so we could have
our own servers or play offline is not there.
i don't want to program a new game, i love what's implemented already.

Re: Hellcore database released [MOO/MUD]

well it's a core, not a copy database. so no weapons, no adult stuff, no shops, no space.
it's all generic stuff, and same mechanic.
there is possibilities for you to make these stuff, with even diffrent mechanics.
for example, $shop exist, but you should build it's children like types of shops.

combat exist but you should improve or make yourself a new combat system with it.
all skills/stats are gone but you can make your own skills/stats.

and go on.

I wanted to update this, since they left in a lot more stuff than I thought.  What you don't get is all the content that HellMOO wizards made by hand, sweating over the text.  But you do get a wide variety of useful generic (basic) items that you can create new things with.  So there are weapons - just not CZ-83s or Glocks, you need to make those using the already created weapon objects.  There are also quite a few actions and enough content to find an example of anything you would need.

Are you building the binary on cygwin?  The hellcore binaries are different from lambdamoo, so you must make clean, and then make to get the right binaries.

Re: Hellcore database released [MOO/MUD]

hello again,
when I do make clean, when it reaches 'checking for ppozix-style i/os' or something like that, it stops there.
what can I do?

This might be a problem with cygwin, I haven't come across it myself.  I would actually recommend you to use a virtual machine running CentOS or fedora, rather than cygwin.  The binaries are fairly old to begin with, and for example they need libcompat-gcc to compile even on a regular linux install.  So if you can, I would highly recommend a linux virtual machine instead of cygwin.
