It'd take severely much more time than a smaug or any other codebase.. It'd be nice to have an advancement than starting over stock with the circlemud codebase. I love circlemud btw. :alien:

Why not use CWG?

Why use CWG, when you can start with circlemud and have a stable code.... I don't trust some of the coding advances by other muds that crash.

Err I wouldn't call stock Circle stable. I believe CWG has bugfixes to the stock.

CWG is modified with several extra features that the CWG team decided on, mostly in a vacuum as I understand it. So unless I've missed something it wasn't really a truly open community effort. Also, the focus wasn't placed on stability and bugfixing, but rather on enhancements and new features.

There was also word that there's been a CircleMUD 3.5 release that's had a lot of work done on it, which may be more what you're looking for.

And besides, why would we want to undertake a project that you've indicated would take us much more time than the one we already have going? Smaug has taken 10 years to get to this point. Spending 10+ more on a codebase most of us don't even like? Not terribly appealing.

You are welcome to start a fusscircle or whatever yourself.

From what I gather, Circle has a large enough following that you'd probably have a great deal of success at making a FUSS version of Circle, but asking a bunch of Smaug users to fix up Circle seems just a little unreasonable.

Maybe he's asking because the Circle community isn't as big as we think anymore and this looked like as good a place as any to come ask for help? Dunno.

I'd suggest a more broad appeal over at MudBytes. You might find some interested people there.

I suppose that does seem pretty reasonable in that light, but I'd agree, mudbytes would probably generate a far better response.
