samson's overland on fuss 1.9?
« on: May 01, 2018, 1:02 AM »
I am just curious if anyone has done this yet? I am installing it on a modified 1.9 and it's a pain. Would appreciate if anyone could direct me to an updated overland.c and overland.h file or link for a repository to a 1.9 fuss deriv. that has done this.

I installed Samson's overland from this link:
https://www.smaugmuds.org/index.php?a=files&s=viewfile&fid=36

I'd be no help on installing it on a Smaug MUD; I installed it on a heavily modified (10+ years of modifications) Rom, which yeah, was definitely a pain.  I imagine even installing on a more compatible or related codebase would still be a pain with as exhaustive of an overhaul and installation the system is, so I doubt there's going to be anything floating out there that would make it easy.

Anyhow, I'm really just commented to give you that link... as far as I know, that's the most updated version that was released/completed.

There is talk back in 2008 from Samson of updating it for 1.9 and releasing it, but he says "it won't be anytime soon" and I want to say it wasn't long after this that he disappeared from / left the MUD community.  Anyhow, here's the discussion (I skimmed, not sure if it "resolved" or not)

yeah i read the same thread and posted on the smaugmud forums as well.   The code you linked is the one I am using.. which apparently worked fine for FUSS 1.6 but not so much for 1.9.

Samson still posts on the forums, i believe.  Not really looking for help, basically just an already modified overland.c/.h file.   I'm doing ok, so far, fixing the other compatibility issues from the instructions given.

Surely someone has done this on FUSS 1.8 or later?
