Keep in mind, and not all indoor rooms are going to be in a building with
windows and such. It would be strange to be 2 miles under the surface of
the world in the darkest, most dangerous cavern and still be able to see
the sunrise and the rain fall.

It's your MUD, but I would feel negligent if I didn't bring that up.

The !OUTSIDE(ch) should have worked, but I would personally go with the
#define and use INSIDE(ch). There may be flaws in that method, but that
is what I would use.
