simple in game aliases for spell casting
« on: December 05, 2018, 12:51:18 AM »
This is probably 20 years too late, but it would be great for new comers to play the game.

I'm talking specifically about casting spells. I cannot understand why spells can't be implemented like skills usage.

instead of
c 'heal' bob

it should just be
heal bob

the ' really ticks me off in the early days, especially when you try to cast something in the heat of battle.

Is it really that hard to come up with a set of keywords for spells per class that doesn't involve typing c 'spell'?

Have it an option to turn it off for expert users.

on top of my head, here are some that I used in my alias
mm: c 'm m'
ble: c 'bless'
heal: c 'heal'
harm: c 'harm'
wor: c 'w o r'
bli: c 'blind'
sanc: c 'sanctuary'
cc: c 'cure crit'

Imagine these are actually in built to the class. You don't need a mud client to play.

Also I can't imagine why one would need the tick to parse the spell when you have key word like cast and mem and forget. Isn't it redundant?

I'd just like one:

That csat means the same as cast.
