I thought it would be pretty cool to create a MUD based on ColdFusion and jQuery so I thought I would give it a shot and see what I could come up with. This was my first project that would rely heaving on jQuery and using AJAX calls to push data to the server and back to the client. The code is still in EARLY in development, but I am putting it up on my public repo.
The main feature is a clickable map that allows you to move your character around the world. It was designed to be pretty lightweight and caches a large chunk of the map at a time. I don’t the the multi-user part down either, currently it works for one person. Also, the NPC system leaves a lot to be desired, the movement is slow and clunky due to the nature of how it is handled (jQuery sends a heartbeat to the server which handles all the server side NPC management).
I don’t have access to my database server to include schema at the moment, but I will update the repo later on this afternoon with the schema in place.
