Happy Holidays! This update adds an advanced text analyser, color map support for Starmourn’s map download, and various quality of life improvements.

Neue Textanalyse

SlySven has worked hard and added a new text analyser to Mudlet! Once enabled in the options, select some text and hover over the right-click option to see a detailed breakdown the characters and which code points they use. This advanced option can help with writing triggers or Lua code when working with non-Latin languages or Unicode characters 🎄

Unterstützung der Kartenfarben für Starmourn

A new game launched this month that has a lot of people excited about it – Starmourn! The game has out of the box support for getting a map out to Mudlet, but to a mixup, the colours the map uses weren’t compatible with Mudlet. A Starmourn player jgh713 decided to take the matters into their own hands and added support for the colours, which now show up properly:

2D view
3D view
