(I moved these posts around a little, to put all the links at the top!) Main link: The Armageddon Tools Page
Okay! I have gotten approval from staff to publish the link to the website where I uploaded all my Armageddon utilities/tools. I think some of these might be really useful to people. Here is a short rundown of the stuff that's on the site, in case you, like me, don't really click on links unless you know they lead to something that interests you:New Player Tutorial
This is an interactive video tutorial that I made to help acclimate new players both to the specifics of Armageddon and the Zalanthan environment, and to the MUDs in general. It is still under (semi) active development, and has some issues, but staff have said they would check it out, so if you guys also want to try it and leave your feedback here, it would be appreciated!sDesc Generator
This is exactly what it sounds like. It's a short description generator with a bit less of the "random" that most have. It allows you to set certain things about your char, and then generate descriptions based on those concrete properties, mixed with other random ones. It also allows you to generate multiple descriptions at a time, so you can get some ideas to mix and match from.
(Also, a big thanks to the people who contributed to FW's Zalanthan Color Chart
thread, from which I borrowed heavily for descriptive words!)Limited Char Text Editor
This is a web-based (ASP .NET) version of the text editor below
, which allows you to edit text without installing or running it on your computer. It works a tiny bit differently than the one above, but I think it should still get the job done.Enviro Tracker Clock
This is a graphical
Armageddon game time clock, which can be set to run with different image modes, for a little more thematic feeling time system. Also, based on RGS's constant reminders, I included a feature which allows you to have the clock tell you when your timed eligibility to vote on MUD ranking sites renews.Visual Status Panel
This is a graphical
Armageddon health/status paenl, which can be set to run with different image modes, for a little more thematic feeling info system. Also includes the clock and voting reminders, as well as a clan pay timer. I will eventually make a page for it on the tools website when it is complete, but for now, you can access it here:http://gdb.armageddon.org/index.php/topic,49750.0.htmlLog Item Indexer
This is a utility that will crawl through your log folder and try to extract the descriptions of all the items you've ever seen in game. As it says on the page, the idea here is not to make your next character a master merchant overnight, but just to help you plan item sets for your characters, and help us get more use out of the crazy tons of items that already exist in game that get forgotten about. It includes some helpful features like color, type, and price categorization.MUSHclient Transparency
This is just a quick tutorial to walk you through adding window transparency to MUSHclient, in case you want to use the Large image setting of the Enviro Tracker clock as a background to your MUD window.
Finally, just a quick note, for the utilities that require install, your antivirus software may tell you that the program is suspicious. The reason for this is just because the publisher (ie Me) is not recognized. Don't forget there is more detail about each tool on its individual page, including instructions!
