Everything appears to be working again.  6dragons.tk is now pointing properly to the right server.  Sorry for the down time.

@Dark can you change link for soundpack in game list database to

https://www.smaugmuds.org/files/download/475/

I don't want such a huge zip file on the new server so it's listed there instead.  It should be a direct link though.

Thanks,

Also everyone if you find something that needs a sound that I don't have please report it as an idea.  You gain glory if and when I use your ideas.

We have quite an extensive sound pack, but that's not to say it can't be improved.  What I try to do, because some people don't like as much sound as others...

I make config options so you can config battle sounds, music, communication, announcements, enhanced, etc.

That way you can customize the sounds you hear.

Thanks for your help making the game great!

I've updated the soundpack and I'll have a think about sounds, as undoubtedly an extra or two might be nice.

one thing that occurs to me are more specific crafting sounds. Right now there is just oen mining sound, one bellows sound and one forging sound, yet it would be nice if there were different sounds for successful/unsuccessful mining, and for the different stages of working an item, since manifestly setting a gem would make a different sound to using molten metal.

I also wonder if you've considered having more crafting activities allowed per character? that's something I'd love to see since I'd really like to try the other activities besides gem cutting without having to have six different characters.

totaly agrees with dark's idea, haha
maybe 1 character could learn 2 or 3 tradeskills.
the problem with that is, the player to player interaction will slightly reduced.

Anyone mind explaining to me how to set the sounds for  this up on mush-z? I tried following the directions in game, but they don't seem to work. Thank you.

Jason, at the moment there isn't a lot of in player traiding anyway, and just because you can learn tradeskills on your own doesn't mean everyone will, especially for skills that are less useful like carpentry and cooking.

the sort of thing I was thinking is something like when you reach level 10 in your first tradeskill, you can learn a second, when you reach level 20 in your first tradeskill you can learn a third etc.
Thus, you still have to practice your primary skill to get stuff, indeed this sort of thing could encourage player trading since then there would be more reasons for people to go and make things with their primary skill, and thus more items around for trade generally.

What about bringing in a special trader class with which you can use all trading skills?

Thumbs up

2018-03-14 18:28:18

The only problem with that firefly is that trading on six dragons is more a sideline than mainline activity, so if you were a trader you couldn't do quests or even explore much, you'd always be in the wilderness or the ore quarry, plus of course any wilderness monsters would slay you in short order.

Btw I seem to be stuck in my questing at the moment.

when I use the "areas command" it tells me there is a quest in gnome tower.
I did the initial quest to put together the tower key, but when I went into the tower nothing happened I just met lots of gnomes, even the duke didn't react to me.

Now, I go to the tower and a guard gives me a key, but the entrance doesn't open.
Is the tower broken or something/

@Dark: Yeah, but maybe you could get EXP for crafting with this trader-class. Or maybe crafted stuff could be more powerfull than crafted stuff of a non-trader-class-character. So other players would highly benefit from buying stuff of specialized traders.

Well it'd need some balancing, especially with what the trader would have to do in battle with all the quests etc, but to be honest I'd not be in favour of that. I'd much rather have games that give a range of activities for characters so you can alternate what you do rather than tying people into one path all the time, hence why I like games with multiple activities and trade skills to learn and why I'd love to see extra trade skills possible for different characters.

I use Linux for my computer so harder for me to do this with windows software but I downloaded Mush-z and am working on getting soundpack to work with it.  I've spent 5 hours yesterday trying. I really don't know why people like it. It's a nightmare to get it to work with sounds unless it comes pre-packaged working.

Hopefully I can get it working with our soundpack soon, zip it up and have available for download working out of the box.

Ok guys for now, I made a Frankenstein version of mush-z that loads 6Dragons and should work out of the box with the sounds.  I say Frankenstein because it loads with a bug trying to call to AA mud.  Just ignore the bug and it should work fine.  Let me know if any issues.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/19jG_fO … sp=sharing

Ok, I made a MUSHclient for 6 Dragons without errors, has soundpack loaded on start.  I'll update my help file on MUSH, to address any possible issues, like where you installed the MUSHclient.  But in any event MUSHclient should now work out of the box with 6 Dragon sounds.

Now, I go to the tower and a guard gives me a key, but the entrance doesn't open.
Is the tower broken or something?

No it's not broken you have the key, but the door is hidden.  You have to use the commands, unlock door, and open door.

Those pesky gnomes sure are sneaky.  smile

Thanks vladar I'll give that a try, I actually should've remembered that from the original quest ;D.
Hopefully then I'll find a way to progress with the quest since the quests in  classic six dragons are something I'm a major fan of.

Holy Cow guys I was able to talk the famous Tyler Spivey who worked on the scripts with MUSH-z to help make a custom version of MUSHclient that works for 6Dragons!

Tyler added a plugin for us called dragons that has tell, chat, ooc, telepathy history.   He hacked lua_audio to provide volume control.  This all comes with 6Dragons soundpack now utilzing ogg sound files instead of wave files.  Which has greatly reduced the over all size of download.  Sounds working out of the box!!!

Download it now at

  amount of practices you gain added to skills, spells, weapons

  fixed a bug with infravision and typo

Hey guys so Baker is fully revamped, please test the crap out of baker tradeskill.  If I am sastifisfied with it, I'd like to then be able to work on the other tradeskills such that using different material has different affects on the final product.

Thanks,

03/24/2018  Fixed a bug that dragons doing higher level quests were not
            showing up in their journal
  Added tradeskills to skills command
  Added a message informing players when a mob is immune to a attack
            type that their attack is unaffective.
Now you will get messages if a mob has a resistance to your
            attack, so you know maybe I should switch to something else.

We used to just say you hit bob zero times for zero damage if bob was immune, now you get a message
saying your attack was unaffective, and if resistant to your attack you get that message.

I don't know if I mentioned before you can gain serious glory in the game.  See help contribute.  With this glory you can permanently affect your player's mana, hp, move, strength, intelligence, wisdom, dexterity, constitution, charisma, luck.   In fact you could literally max them all out.
