GMD (Graphical Mud (Multi-User Domain) Designer)

This application is aimed at supporting the creation of text-based multi-user domains. Current techniques use text-based tools to create these environments, but these tools have very little computer support so complexity and consistency are sacrificed. Our new application supports the graphical creation of MUD areas and enforces topological constraints together with hierarchical grouping of features. The graphical tool can be used in a number of modes which allow the information to be filtered, zoomed and viewed in 2.5 D. Areas created can be printed and additionally they can be saved as native code that can be executed.
