Re: More Directions Please [NEWBIE]

-> Are there any plans to add this functionality into the core code?

No, because it's not desired by most people, and it's really easy to
add for those that do deserve it.  In fact, it makes a pretty good
first project for newbie coders.

-> Does anyone know why these directions are generally left out of all the
-> public domain mud servers, as it surely makes for more realistic worlds?

They don't make the world any more realistic.  Most people that have
the exits just use them as a way to add more rooms, and completely
ignore the fact that in their MUD you can go north then east and end
up in a different room than had you gone "ne" in the first place.  And
if you did it realistically, there isn't much need for the northeast
exit.  Unless you want to restrict your builders to using it
sensibly...but then again, builders sometimes make rooms where going
north then south puts you in a different room than you started in.
