SMAUG server FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about SMAUG server.

Summary The server won't start up.
Question I deleted some of the existing areas, now the MUD server won't start.

There are some hard-coded vnums in the server. If you remove the areas which load the mobs/rooms/objects for those vnums then some functions will not work properly. A list of "well-known" vnums appears below, however it is not necessarily comprehensive. You should type ZONES to find which areas these vnums appear in, and leave them in the AREA.LST file.
