Ok I only have one really simple question about admin.
How do I change the login screen so it has my Asci art and Mud title?
I know with circle it was just a text file that the mud loaded but I cant seem to find anything remotely like this within Dawn.
Any help would be greatly appriecated.

You need to edit help greeting then hotreboot.

hedit greeting
text
done
hot confirm


That should do it :) to change the MuD name itself so it appears as your MuD name when you type mudstat and save etc. you need to edit the gameset:

gameedit confirm
name <insert name>
done
savegameset


That should do it :)

Just a small message to ask for a tiny bit of help that might keep me sane.
I noticed in the help file that there is a reference to CONVERT_GOLD CONVERT_SILVER. Im figured this perhaps ran on a mprog but couldnt the mprog in any of the default areas and so had an attempt at creating it. Lets just say this didnt go really well. (rubs his head where he headbutted his monitor repeatedly).
So my question is does anyone feel super generous and would like to post the code here for me? I know its a big ask and usually Id battle against the mprog code but this little code has got me stumped.
Oh well help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Mark

If a mob has the changer act flag set, then when you give it money it will change it for you.

This can be set using:
medit <mobvnum>
act changer
done

To test:
load mob <mobvnum>
give <mob> 50 silver

When you look at the mob, it should say something like:

a tiny halfling fellow [3021,100] appears to be willing to exchange your silver coins for gold.

To see this mob, goto room 3017 in the dawn area set.

Ok this is probably why I cant find it.
I havent seen anywhere to download an area set for D.O.T
I've searched the web and looked all over the Official D.O.T page. So Im under the assumation that either its within a file on the downloads or someone stole it from your site. :)
(feels silly asking for more help but having the area file for the 3000 area would probably help.) :)
Oh and thanks for the info above!
(mark slaps himself for overlooking that in Medit)

I would like to figure out a way to change the Gold and Silver to 1 currency called "Gil" is this possible?

Yes it is possible, however, there is a lot of code restructuring involved. You will generally have to go through all the OLC source files, change the encumberance code, change the autobalance code for mobs, change the update_data based around shopkeepers and the flag "changer", etc, etc.

In all honesty, I really don't recommend it unless you sincerely have the time it would take to reshape a good portion of the dawn code to recognize gil over gold & silver.

Yup yup, Daos is right here, there are over 200 references to gold and silver in the code. You'd have to go through them all and rework it to your currency. Also, having 1 currency type will make players eventually have substantial coins, which can really detriment their encumberance. You may opt to change the actual in-game references of gold and silver to Gil and mini-Gil :) That would give your world a little bit of a customized feel.

I know on several other code bases there is a command that will temporarily (depending on the time set by the immortal) Hell, or Jail a PC. Is there a function like that in Dawn? I haven't seen anything in the help files about it.
I appreciate your response to my other question guys :) Kinda think I'll leave it alone for now :P

Thanks

In the latest public version, you can transfer players to room 299 (if one exists - room vnum is customizeable in gameedit also). This is a jail type room... should be marked as ooc. The code will not allow a player to delete in this room either.

In the next release of the code which is pretty much ready for release - I just need to clean up the areas and helps that ship with it. There is a dedicated jail command... the jail room has a nopublic channels flag and simular no delete rules.

Just prefix the social command with 'gs' (global social).
e.g. 'gs smile'.

I think I will move away from this command in the future, instead make it if you prefix what you say on any public channel with a !, it will treat the text which follows as a social/emote. That way you can do socials on any channel... this is not implemented yet though.

Hope this answers your questions,
