Thales' Snippet Collection

Jump to:    Snippets Page   Skills/Spells   Linux/MUD Utilities   Codebases

Here is my entire collection of snippets. I have gone to many sites and picked out only the most useful ones, not just downloading every snippet I could find in order to have the biggest site. This site is designed for ROM muds, although some of these snippets were written for other muds. The reason I include them here are because they are worth porting to ROM. If you have a snippet you would like me to post here, send it to, and I will be glad to add it.

Islands of Exile has moved to port 5588. I have also added an English translation of OLC 2.01, so you don't have 50% of it in Spanish anymore.

Another mud using Island of Exile code, called Forsaken Wars, is up and running at: port 8855. If you are interested in a building or coding job, talk to Remdul.

I added an FAQ on using a shell account for beginning mud admins in the linux section.

The guns snippet suddenly hasn't been working, so I changed it from a rar file to a zip file.
Also, Islands of Exile has been down for a while...we still haven't found a good affordable server yet. Monty (the co-imp) and I are working on another project, so keep posted.

I started school last week, but I will try to keep the site updated just as much as before. Islands of Exile has moved to: port 9999 Yes, we are back at our original server. No more shutdowns or server losses (I hope).  I  also added a new quest code snippet to the site.

I found 20 or so new skill/spell snippets, and added them to a new page. I also moved the skills/spells on this page there.

Vagrant mud codebase (basic mud core) and 5 new snippets were added.

3 new snippets added, along with updates for OLC and my explosives snippet.

Added deity and bandage code, and updated the Islands of Exile server address on the main page.

I will be gone for about two weeks, so I'll be unable to update the site. Adding color greeting, copyover and pload snippets. I also changed some filenames, to make it more clear for those of us that scan alphabetically :)

Finished debugging and uploaded my prison code

I added 13 new files today and separated the Snippets, Linux/MUD utilites and Codebases.

There was a bug in my explosive snippet. The new code was uploaded. Also I added the reload and nuke snippets.

Some of these files had .c extensions originally. The server doesn't seem to work right with them, so I changed their extensions to .txt.
