When the code base changes, players may or may not notice the effects, depending on the new functionality.

The code base is the underlying programming that makes the game work - everything you see and can do is controlled by this underlying programming.

The TMUX code base was first edited in 2003, and now varies considerably from the standard download mordor MUD.

Listed here are some recent code changes and their consequences.

Newly coded changes effect QUEST items.

  1. You cannot "drop all" a quest item
  2. you must name the quest item when dropping it in a recycle centre to remove it from your inventory
  3. when you flee, you do not dequip a quest weapon
  4. when you are defeated, you do not dequip nor drop a quest weapon, nor dequip and drop quest armor
  5. quest items cannot be stolen
  6. you cannot give a quest item to another player
  7. the _only_ place you can drop a quest item is a recycle centre


These changes have been tested with no known issues - if they cause any weird side-effects, post in "Bugs" thread and they will be dealt with.

Why was it done: to stop players gifting quests to their mates, and to prevent quest weapons/armor from being lost in battle (because you would not be able to pick it up again, right?)[/list]
