About This Game

City of Ages Code: Safari
[framework Visual Basic + 80% SQL Transactions + Win 11 vbDLLs approved by Microsoft]
Our game design is similar to top graphical games of the same concept, some laptops don't have a graphical card, here is a text variation to toy with.
Our finished client allows you to make macros, edit buttons, you have timers that repeat any command including your Attack target commands [no grind no beating on your keyboard required], or use timers to practice your spells FOR YOU, does the word IDLE game mean anything to you all? Yes it DOES!
Its a really great different type of game, play it, I MADE IT!

Graphical User Interface Plans
Here are special commands a graphical client would require:
BM ON OFF STATUS (blindmode only limits room/combat text see also, config combat -/+)
GM ON OFF STATUS (graphics detailed mode using system GUIDs)
SM ON OFF STATUS (scaremode if special-nearby mobiles will randomly aggressive you)
DD shows the day description, night is shown too if not the same, with zoom mode
BATTLESTATUS [noverbose] tracks all mobiles attacking you or after you - such as raid mobs
PLYR rx ry rz facing-graphicsid this is controlled by your client, run alone for the complete necessary room report on players

* New commands to try:
When SLEEPing try to DREAM and get a guard quest
Do not nightmare, you may experience the learning points of the Black Plague!
What was that about learning a point to train with?
Its a quest too, just an annoying one. Even bad stuff in the realm leads you to water.
- SCRY (creates a tornado item and a few pentagram items)
- CHAIN and BOLT attack commands
Tip: Make a druid orc or mage orc to try all three!

Immersive Points - Main Activities
Mimics are a heavy part of our system; during an eclipse drop an
object [from a pentagram] with a mimic identified on it and then exorcise them!
Our game is incredibly intrincate this way. MAP command if you care to see
where you are going, now with a realm weather report
Heavy and Advanced EMOTE system which brings in all your pet emote
commands into one easy to use command
New Years, Halloween, Auzzie Day and other event days have
celebrated emote especially at City of Ages Centre
FACTIONS are most important to use for thieves or player warn paths to
prevent sickness from other factions you are not matched with.
COLONISTS, beam them around the realm to fight for you, SS command
Alien Abduction extremely rare quest, drop a lollypop on them to win
Starships in a true X Y Z in a Universe of Ages
- ride your starship to the Guarding x y z locations, spend fuel for cofg
different damage causing or healing or static Nebulas
Black Plague looms!
Healing Myst prevails!
I ask you, are you more of a Thief or are you a Guard at heart
all player classes can steal at different costs
We have slaying weapons and now more to slay with:
Missile weapons and Arcane kenetic bolts can slay anything in the realm,
with Guard quests and Object hunts we took some grind out of RPG this way.

Crafting No leveling required, full access to the forge and crafting system
Craft Transmute tables
FORGE command with easy to earn crowns of glory, items rare on their own as well

Fast Tracking
Waystones to travel you far and fast lie everwhere
MARK n RECALL as standard issue commands
Stargates back n forth to a true Solar system x1 y1 z1 to destination x2 y2 z2
City of Ages has four parapets with Waystones

For Role-play we have advanced EMOTES for you and your mountable pets.

You begin your adventure with medieval weapons including cross/bows/slings and bolts/arrows/and rocks, and move slowly into modern weaponry. There are machineguns/hand phasers and ammo. Starships are fully loaded with weapons/shields and mines, use them as a house or beam down to just about any location in the realm. Stock-market, Golfing [its hilarious to golf grenades around the realm], Stargates, Starships, a tonne of different types of Quest engines, like our infamous ARMEGADDON system quest. As well as normal types of quests, and many built-in Door games. Door games include, a Mini-Casino, a real to life Roulette game, a fun Horse Racing game, one playable Arcade game, GUESS WORD, Dice, and a Deck of Cards. For Role-play we have advanced EMOTES for you and your mountable pets. The creatures of the realm go on city Raids, and will eventually mark you as a bounty over time and then they will try to catch you off guard.

Great for those new to Mudding and especially those that played Internet MUDS, and BBS Door games. We have an exact unique identifer system, as well as a perception machine to intice you to read areas with pictures matching by words. This MUD also allows you to link/import your own pictures and sounds, which is not included, for you to find and optionally create. There are loads of free pictures and free sounds found on the web. One of the windows will not work if Graphical User Interface exact mode status is set to [GM off].

Note about Scaremode: SM [ON/OFF/STATUS]: Toggles your scaremode for those that want to chill more, the idea was to keep you moving around the map, invisibility and sneak prevented special-nearby mobiles from falling into hunting mode (and still does), it was the main reason for SNEAK command being movement oriented as opposed to duration timeout based. This is now optional.

The MUD is fully finished and fully programmed to automatically run your quests for you.

Happy Hunting!

An EXE file is a Compressed HEX version of human readable code [32bit]:
Server: 11,313,152 bytes native exe
Client: 5,144,576 bytes native exe
the above is the true EXE file size, that is a lot of code, a lot of fast running SQL!

Server and Client use a true X,Y,Z coordinate system giving real depth to the Mudding environment.
