Here's a "T"UI for OLC as screen scroll of what it would look like. It only covers area, room, mobile and objects so far and assumes automatic numbering.

<100hp 100m 100mv>olc
__ creates the area's __:
a info
r rooms
m mobiles
o objects
x exits
t resets
p mobprogs

Any ideas for resets and mprogs? Thinking about making a web GUI for OLC would make me want to make it so cool that it would be more fun than playing the game. Feel free to implement this if you have time. I'm planning on using and checking a changing prompt to indicate what is being added to memory. An "area to file" function could then write it to disk or email it as an .are .

I'm thinking of olc as three logical groups: (1) area, room, exit; (2) mobile, object; (3) shop, program. Tighter, more informative "TUIs" for (1) are:

_a_rea _r_oom e_x_it _m_obile _o_bject rese_t_ s_h_op _p_rogram

This area by _author_ is called _name_. It begins with room _number_ and is intended for levels _range_.
>Two The Enclave 900 29-30

This area by Two is called The Enclave. It begins with room 900 and is intended for levels 29-30.

Room _number_ is called _name_.
It's described _sentence. _ … _sentence._
Looking at _word, _ shows the description _sentence._ …
Its attributes are __ __ … among these:
dark norecall forest indoors etc.

An _exit or name_ leads _direction_ to room _number_.
It's described _sentence._
It's _open or closed_ _unlocked or locked_ _pickable or unpickable_ and takes key _number_.

Parentheses could be used in place of blanks, previously completed lines can appear with filled values or other options could be implemented. It looks like a good way to go for basic olc.

Sorry to post on this again. I'm going to keep it simple and program a changing prompt that cues input similar to:

>help olc
type new a or a, r, x, m, o, t, h or p

This room is called: |
It's described:
The word _ shows the description _ :
dark indoors safe norecall etc.
It's attributes are: |

The pipes above are meant to show cursor position. Description keeps taking and extra descriptions keep prompting until a blank line is entered.
