This resource, sometimes referred to as ‘the builder docs’ started life as ‘The Builder’s Handbook’, written by Builder_5 as a generic resource for all DikuMUDs. It was updated by Matrix, and then by Q when the Wormhole Project began. It was then adapted by Angel Kinbane for the Parallax Project, before reaching its current form, compiled by Artoo. This document explains the syntax of the five kinds of file that may be used to create a new zone in the Wormhole MUD, or one of its derivatives.

This resource, sometimes referred to as ‘the builder docs’ started life as ‘The Builder’s Handbook’, written by Builder_5 as a generic resource for all DikuMUDs. It was updated by Matrix, and then by Q when the Wormhole Project began. It was then adapted by Kinbane for [[Parallax MUD]], before reaching its current form, compiled by [[Artoo]] with contributions from [[Ecks]] and [[Amigone]]. This document explains the syntax of the five main kinds of file that may be used to create a new zone in the Wormhole MUD (or one of its derivatives), plus starships and scripted quests.

You can use these builder documents for construction in any CircleMUD, although you may find that some of the higher-numbered flags and object types are not available within basic implementations. Wormhole's game engine has been expanded quite a bit! Also, specific races and classes will be different in other MUDs, of course.
