As we wrap up 2022 for Mudlet, we can’t help but feel a sense of accomplishment for all the hard work that’s been put in. While there have only been two official updates this year, there’s been a ton of behind-the-scenes activity that will start to come to light in 2023.
One of the biggest highlights of the year was the addition of gif support, which has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for creating engaging and dynamic user interfaces. The sound framework also received a major overhaul, enabling the use of both ambient and active music and sounds in Mudlet scripts.
Other notable features of the year include proper scrollboxes for UI creation, configurable shortcuts, and autosaved maps to prevent data loss. The map labels window was also redesigned to make it even easier to use.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the incredible Mudlet team, which includes Chris Mitchell, Damian Monogue, Dustin Heywood, Eraene, Florian, Gustavo Sousa, Henry Hsiao, Héctor Luaces, Kebap, keneanung, Manuel Wegmann, Mike Conley, Naveen, nsweeting2, Piotr, RollanzMushing, Slobodan Terzić, Stephen Lyons, Tim Johnson, Vadim Peretokin, 噢哎哟喂, and zenjei. These talented individuals put in a ton of hard work and dedication to make Mudlet the modern and quick MUD client it is today.
And speaking of contributions, this year we also started experimenting with payouts for features that prove popular with players. While it’s not exactly a windfall, it’s a little something extra as an incentive. This scheme has worked out pretty well, so we’ll be continuing it in 2023. If you’re interested in joining the Mudlet team and contributing your own ideas and creations, head on over to the Mudlet Wiki for instructions on compiling Mudlet and get started today! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Thanks for the amazing 2022 and see you all in 2023!
