First, learn to wordwrap you lines to 80 at most characters.

Second, what exactly are you looking for in your new mud?  Are you looking
to include races?  What about being able to build your areas on-line?  What
about editing Help files?  Do you plan to include some form of scripting
support?  What about clans and quests?  Do you want a player file system
that can easily expand as you include new variables to be saved?

Some of the basic extensions that you many be interested in are OasisOLC
v2.0, Sammy's ASCII Pfiles and DG Scripts.  But I like to know what YOU are
most interested in before giving any more suggestions.
