In case any Discworld MUD users come looking here, and haven't seen these elsewhere, I thought I'd post here about my suite of plugins I have made this past few months for Mushclient! My latest one is the fully custom, modular UI system, packaged with the graphical minimap plugin that tracks your position and has some AI pathfinding to let you instantly speedwalk anywhere from anywhere with a couple of clicks, and more - I finished that only yesterday so it's a brand new release!

All of my plugins are listed on the Discworld MUD wiki page, but can be viewed and downloaded (with screenshots, instructions, and information) from my new homepage:

Cow Bar & Minimap:
Quow's Cow Bar and Minimap provides you with a fully modular, and customisable UI, with many advanced features to completely change your Mushclient experience. The main Graphical Minimap and Map Tracker feature provides you with a resizeable, moveable window that displays a graphical map of your surroundings in any recognised village, town, city, guild area or building interior. It shows your exact room location, and tracks you as you move around. The plugin also allows you to instantly generate a speedwalk to almost any location from wherever you may be, generating a route automatically using pathfinding. It also allows you to look up recorded data for rooms, such as full shop inventories for shops with standard inventory listings. You can search for streets, shops, areas, and even items and quickly look up the location.

The customisable UI allows you to set up custom margin areas on any of all of the four sides or your Mushclient window. It contains seven fully customisable modules/windows: Vitals Bars, XP Rate, Shield/Group Window, Combat Stats, Ascii Map, Written Map, and Communications. Each of these can be moved around, resized, and all have their own set of options, commands, features, and customisations. All modules are optional, and can be fully disabled if you do not like or want any of them running.

Spellcheck, Mindspace & TM Helper:
This plugin will tell you how much mindspace all of your "spells" currently consume, and how much room you have left. It contains all spellcheck data for every wizard and witch spell to instantly look up, including your chances are of succeeding at every stage. For wizards, lookup any magical skill and see all spells that use that method, and get suggestions for spells that might help you TM that skill.
After installing, type "help mindspace" for a list of all the features and commands, and how to use them.

Map Door Text Parser & Hunt Helper:
This plugin will replace the large and messy output of Discworld's "map door text" command, and replace it with a sorted, categorised, list of rooms with quick directions to each rooms, highlights, and more. Designed to make hunting around towns, cities etc. much quicker and more pleasant. Has many advanced features, such as multiple categories, regex matches, etc.
After installing, type "help mdt" for a list of client-side commands added by the plugin.

Mission & Job Timers:
Provides 60 minute timers for completion each of the job market mission types, all 5 dead-letter missions, plus currently Sto-lat pottery, Pennie-Laced and Genua furniture missions, for maximising your reward experience. Also has failure timers for returned dead letters or resigned job market missions, for getting a new mission. You can view all current on-going timers at any time by typing "missions" or "missions all".

Klein Bottle Helper:
This is an extremely simple plugin that triggers when you "look" at a valid (chargeable) klein bottle, and will add an extra output line informing you of how full it is and what size orbs (escaped spells) you can SAFELY capture without risk.

EFF Stats & Advice:
Tracks total blocks, misses, and knockdowns of your wizard or witch EFF floater. Once installed, type "eff stats" to show your block-rate, or "eff reset" to reset the numbers to 0. For wizards, type "eff check" for suggested shield weights at your bonus.
