Obsidian is an extensible virtual world system with a fullblown multiplayer client-server architecture. It is not a VRML2 world system, though there are plans to include VRML2 as a world data format. Note that active development on this system stopped a while ago, though the code is still available for the curious. The code may not even compile on current Linux or Irix systems.
SMM++ Mud Client is a mud client with extended and unique features. Aside from all standard mud client functionality like ANSI color support, aliases, action triggers, and tab-completion, SMM++ features a highly-customizable user interface (labels, buttons, and menus) and unique and powerful mapping capabilities, and SMM++ is the only mapping crossplatform (Tcl/Tk based) mud client available.
TinyMARE (Multi-user Adventure Roleplaying Epic) is a text-based MUD server completely rewritten for efficiency using TinyMUSH and TinyMUSE as a basis for its game engine. The server is designed for creating an extensive, novelistic role-playing atmosphere supporting real-time combat, day & night, seasons, and global weather. Using a telnet client, players can log on to explore a virtual world, find magical items, learn skills and techniques, and group together to surpass obstacles you create in your own epic adventure.
Trebuchet Tk is a MUCK/MUSH/MOO GUI client written entirely in TCL/Tk. It supports both Unix/X11 and Windows, and includes powerful scripting, triggers, hilites, macros, quickbuttons, keybinds, etc. that you would expect from a good MU* client. It also supports MCP simple-edit, and GUI dialog packages for MOO and FBMUCK6. For Muck users, Trebuchet also supports intelligent colored editing of MUF and MPI programs.
Twisted is an event-based framework for Internet applications. It includes a Web server, an SMTP/POP3 server, a telnet server, an SSH server, an IRC server, a DNS server, a generic client/server pair for remote object access (Perspective Broker), and APIs for creating new protocols. It supports integration with GTK+, GTK+ 2, Qt, Tkinter, wxPython, Mac OS X (PyObjC) and Win32 event loops. It also supports TCP, SSL and TLS, UDP, Unix sockets, multicast, and serial ports. Supported protocols include HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, TOC, OSCAR (AIM and ICQ), SSH, DNS, IRC, NNTP, Jabber, SOCKSv4, Telnet, SIP (for VoIP), and XML-RPC and SOAP using external packages. Most protocols are supported as both servers and clients.
The WorldForge Project is developing a complete, distributable framework for massively multiplayer online roleplaying games. The system will include a number of fully developed roleplaying worlds with unique maps, histories, creatures and legends. To run these worlds on the servers a balanced but highly customisable set of roleplaying rules is being developed. Provisions will be made to allow others the ability to recode the servers to use alternate rule sets. A standard protocol named Atlas is being developed to allow a common communication layer between clients, servers, and associated tools. For software packages that make up the system being developed by the WorldForge project, please see the dependencies for this record.
ymusk stands for Yenzie's Mush Klient. It is a mush client written in Perl, and it is built around the Net::Telnet and Tk modules. It is meant to be a simple program which is easily customizable. Its features include logging, macro definition, speech filters, command history, and ANSI colors.
