Created a Launchpad project at https://launchpad.net/protomud to publicly host the sources for my concept testing MUD.
Did some more developing on my concept testing game server. Rooms now have connectivity (Portals). The current testing map creates 4 rooms and links them to the starting lobby, users can move between rooms. This is in preparation for event propagation - sounds/actions/etc will be events that pass from location to connected locations, changing as they go.
The plan is that a clear sound in one room will be muffled if passing through a closed door, and become muffled after passing through multiple open doors. Visual events will become less detailed as they pass through (open) portals. Also line-of-sight will affect the events, so that sound becomes muffled faster going around corners, and visual events won't go around corners.
