Tripwire Combat and Curing System

I am currently selling my latest system, Tripwire! This is a system designed for Mudlet. This will require you to use the latest Mudlet version (2.1) and enable GMCP. The system relies heavily upon the afflict view system, and information about how to set your settings to best accommodate this will be shown below. Many of you may have heard of my old system, Earthshaker, or various versions modified from that. This system is a complete rewrite from the ground up utilizing all that I learned when making that system and keeping what worked well. It has a new curing system that allows for much better customization of curing orders.

The system is for sale for 200 credits. The system will be locked down per-character, but you will be able to use this for up to 3 alts as well. This price also includes access to all further updates to the system as well as support for the system should you run into any bugs. I will also consider any feature requests, and can give you pointers on setting up some custom modules should you wish.

Features

  • Full GMCP integration
  • Automatically Update Notifications
  • Living and Undead Curing
  • Ability to Ignore Afflictions in Curing
  • Supports All Curing Methods (Tree, Focus, etc)
  • Pipe/Syringe Maintenance
  • Auto Defense Maintenance
  • Pre-Caching
  • Pre-Restoration
  • Auto Parrying
  • Enemy Affliction Tracking
  • Combat Ready System Toggles
  • Command Queue System
  • Localized Custom Settings
  • Mudlet Mapper that uses the Game's XML
  • Scalable and Dynamic User Interface
  • Different UI Color Schemes
  • Word Highlighting system that requires no triggers!

If you would like to purchase this system or if you require any assistance you can reach me ingame @Kaeus, on the forums here or on Skype (kaeus22).

    I will try to get said credits and likely buy this, thanks @Kaeus.

    Can you briefly touch on this feature:
    Automatically checks the distribution server for the latest version and lets you know if there is an update every 10 minutes!

    Can this be toggled, and is it spammy? Or is it an internal thing the system is doing that I can't see? I don't want to break immersion every ten minutes is why I ask.


  • KaeusKaeus Member Posts: 209 ✭✭✭
    It happens every 10 minutes behind the scenes, and only notifies you if there is a new version greater than what you have. It will re-notify every 10 minutes, unless you click to ignore for that version.
  • AoiveaeAoiveae Member Posts: 17
    Okay thank you Kaeus

    The UI looks awesome. That's one of the only two reasons I'd abandon beloved MUSHclient for Mudlet.

    Bought it, still testing, but I am please so far. Especially with support, cause it's awesome. I am still working on my offensive things to go with the curing, so I'll let you know more once that's done.

    So, I'm not sure if it's crass or crude to ask, but.. aside from the price difference, why should someone buy Tripwire over Citadel?

    The pretty UI?
  • KaeusKaeus Member Posts: 209 ✭✭✭
    It is a full Mudlet system with an awesome UI. As far as curing goes they are both comparable. The advantage you have on Tripwire is that you have full access to the code so you can easily modify or override things if you really want to. 

    Lanira is a great system developer, and I've never personally never had Citadel so I can't really comment on how well it is maintained or debugged.

    Why should someone pay more for what looks to be essentially the same product?

    I actually tested Citadel  and it was amazing, then there were auctions and I ran out of credits. I might actually be interested in this if I manage to win some credits in the Great Hunt.

    EDIT:
    I realized I have a question. Is this thing compatible with Xon's mudbot/imap thing?

  • DhraenDhraen UKMember Posts: 59 ✭✭
    That will mostly depend on whether the version of Mudbot here has been properly patched to support GMCP.

    Regardless, Kaeus wrote this amazing mapper which does pretty much everything that Mudbot does. Anything it does not have is available within Tripwire or can be easily added.
  • AlexinaAlexina the Haunted Soul Member Posts: 851 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Well, if his mapper can search for foci in an area, or search for items/mobs in an area, or path via custom artifacts and special exits, path over ferries, save shrine locations, set room aliases to path to, map areas that Aetolia doesn't have mapped, and all those other neat things, then I won't really care.

    Some of the features you speak of are there, some are not in the mapper at the moment. I have a feature to allow you to store a persistent list of custom exits (and will be looking into doing a crowd sourcing type feature, so that anyone using my mapper shares special exits). Mapping areas aetolia doesn't have mapped can be done, the issue comes when you download a new map and you lose those. I already have locations aliases you can use and easily add to, you can even type 'goto <area>' to go until you reach an area. I also have built in support for utilizing an artifact for pathing (automatically calculates if you should or should not use that artifact to get the shortest path) and could easily add support for multiple artifacts if needed.

    I know Dhraen has been bugging me to look at his nifty 'genwalker' which would easily make my foci hunter better, as well as allow for area searching of a mob.

    Edit: Just to clarify, the mapper is completely toggleable as well, if you turn it off it instead just shows you the ingame map whenever it is displayed. (config mapview on). So you could easily run mudbot and just ignore the mapper stuff. Just a simple setting in the system to turn it on/off.

    @Alexina: I run his system with Mudbot and it works fine.

    Problem with Citadel, is that it is Windows only.

    Will your system feature Life and Death?

    If Citadel destroyed Alexina's huge dumpster truck worth of credits because of its purchase amount and thus, as a result, prevented her from getting everything in the credit auctions, then I'd consider it worth the money because of the Anti-Alexina feature.

    Still, Kaeus is an outstanding coder and his work has been used in the past in different systems. I highly recommend his systems.

    Actually, it was the other way around. The auctions destroyed my credits, preventing me from getting Citadel.

    Rofl, I want to find that post now. I remember I posted a funny parody reply.
  • AkimotoAkimoto Member Posts: 33 ✭✭
    Kaeus has added in new color scheme options, I am working on adding in different schemes for use, I will post pics of some. I will be taking ideas on what you think should be done.

    Still prefer the original blue (though green is a favorite color mine).

    Also, system updates at a crazy-fast rate as soon as new things are found.



  • KaeusKaeus Member Posts: 209 ✭✭✭
    I've been working on compiling documentation for anyone who purchases my system. It can be found at http://api.pharanyx.com/tripwire/, This should also serve to give people a better idea of what all is in the system. Do note that this is a work in progress, so there is still a lot that I need to add to this documentation.

    I have a few questions to ask.

    • Outside those who put this system together, how many people use it?
    • Is it better or equal to citadel,
    • Is it worth buying, given I have limited funds (no job) and a copy of a system that was based on earthshaker with great features added to it. (except it cures really badly right now?)
    • How is paralysis handled and other pain in the butt afflictions.
    • The engage system does it work for Bloodborn, normal vamps, carnifex and lycan class?
    • Will it select whispers based on what they do or do not have and venoms too?

    The reason I mention earthshakers is its bad curing when under pressure can not keep up with vampires, or other affliction classes. I got a system for 100 credits of someone a while back that was based on the earthshaker and was taken for a ride, which was upsetting, as it cured really badly, but had nice features. Having been killed badly by certain classes I am tired of it and being locked up with confusion, paralysis and other simple afflictions. I also can not keep up with templar or the new shamans now either, which is a pain.

    @chelsea

    1. I'm using it, at least for now. I have citadel but as it no longer works in crossover/wine and I do not have windows at the moment, I had to look for something else.

    2. I don't know how it rates against Citadel as I've only been using it a short time and have not put it through its paces in a decent fight yet. I've done a lot of testing and stuff while building my offensive scripts and have been familiarising myself with Tripwire in the process. I'm about ready to spar for real now, and in the next few days I will post back here with my observations on how they went.

    3. From what I can tell, it is worth buying. It is half the price of citadel, and you get all of the code. Kaeus has been updating it very regularly. The GUI is rock solid and from what testing I've done, it has cured well. Touches tree for ages after a few hidden affs though, even once everything has been cured. Might be a problem without a perm tree.

    4. How does it handle paralysis? It um, eats bloodroot when the opportunity is there?

    5. The engage system is just a way to let you create your own auto-ai-attack-scripts, and easily hook them into his pvp-mode system. It works for any class, but you'll have to make your own. If all you wanted was something really basic, Kaeus would probably help you build it - but check with him on that first.

    6. Yes! Very well, too. The example of that is in his website. You create a list of afflictions you want to stick on them, in order of importance. He supplies a function which loops through that table and checks the affs against what affs that target has, and tells you what the first X number of affs are that the target does not have. You can define what number X is (two for a dstab, for example).

    If you wait for a few days, I'll post my impressions after some real fights, rather than just testing. I've had a few people attack me for the testing, but I won't be able to give good advice until I've fought for real.

    Everyone go gank Irruel so I can see if I should buy this to work on instead of homebrewing my own/continuing to slap at Earthshaker ineffectually.

    Been playing for a bit over a week again, since being on a good 12 month break due to being a busy dad. I got this system when I return and I highly recommend it. I have had several updates and help rebuilding what I require for getting reinvolved by those who use it.

    Plus -->The price is -VERY- fair and well worth every cent.

     

    Good job on the system!

    You can run Mudlet natively in Linux. This is how most Mudlet developers use it.

    I can help you do this if you want. What distribution are you running? Ask me in a PM to not go off-topic in this thread.

    I still maintain, and always will, that 70USD for a system is exorbitant. That said, it's well worth paying that ridiculous price for this system. The coding is on the level of Svo from Achaea, which I haven't seen since coming to Aet. The system runs smoothly on my old Ubuntu-running laptop, despite having an old motherboard that can only handle 1.2gb of RAM. The curing itself is solid as a rock and @Kaeus himself is a pleasure to work with, extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful.

    Two thumbs up.
