  1. Added Aggro mobs
  2. Completed intial Dashboard to log errors, Mud activity and where people quit.
  3. Fixed idle code so players are disconnected after 20mins

  5. Corrected a number of item names by removing a or an prefix and letting the code to decide when to add it as some use cases didn’t make sense.
  6. Added most of the base skills for Warrior (yet to be fully implemented)
  7. Added extra commands that people were trying to use:
    • Plunder
    • pick up
    • look at / l at
    • search / search in (probably be changed to a true search rather than a look alternative)
    • use – wear alternative for now as covers 90% of usage

    • help / ?
    • spells
    • stand
    • sell
    • rest (thanks Steven)
    • hit / attack – kill alternative
  8. Overhauled the stats so there is no stat rolling and stats are fixed and are out of 100.
  9. Added feline furry race and a Lizard race so we don’t look so generic. Dwarf is gone for now.
