They don't? Explain how they dont make the world more realistic?
Do you always walk N S E W to get where your going?

I guess the fact that it puts 4 more exits into a room (more directions
more realistic). Also gives you 4 more locations to hide a door. Even if
you don't FULLY use all the exits. Meaning just use em for hiding doors,
secret rooms etc.. It enhances the game big time. So what if the
direction ne gets you to the room that you can go n then e.. To me it
would save a lot of typing. Again realistic..
It seems awful funny that a LOT of people add it to thier mud yet your
indications make it sound very few want it.

*One vote for extra exits*
