A normal MUD will have a background (theme, plot,
story, whatever you want to call it) which a builder is expected to
work from. TBA does not have any such background. If you want to
build a zone for a MUD then use their background. Otherwise, you may
build whatever your heart desires.
The most challenging aspect of running a mud is finding good builders. You will hear this from the admin of every mud that has ever been. In the past it has always been up to each individual mud to find and usually train their own builders. This works, but I think the CircleMUD community can come up with something better. That is why I created The Builder's Academy.
We have been open to anyone interested in learning or teaching how to build using Oasis OLC with dg scripts for over 2 years. The current developer of DG scripts, Welcor, uses The Builder's Academy (TBA) as the development port for DG scripts.
No pressure, no deadline, just come and learn or help teach. Give something back to the community we have all taken so much from. TBA is a CircleMUD resource, please submit any "lessons learned" or building tips and hints so we can improve all of CircleMUD. TBA can also be used by other muds as a builder's port for CircleMUD's. Just send us your newbie builders. We will teach them and then you can have them back with the zones they built.
We are always open to anyone willing to learn or
help teach so we can improve all of CircleMUD.
