How Does TriadCity Differ From Other Multi-Player Role-Playing
TriadCity allows online world-building.
Many text-based games we know of require authors to manipulate
text files offline. For their changes to take effect, or even
to preview what their changes will look like, the game server
has to be rebooted. Obviously this is an inconvenience for
players, who have to wait while the game goes down. But, it's
also considerably error-prone, since authors can't immediately
test what they've done.
Triad's GUI authoring tools work in real time, with the server
online. Authors can see what's happening, players can continue
playing, and this is just generally a good thing.
