FTP Archives for MUDs

This document is part of the MUD Resource Collection.

Last update: January 16th, 1997

The number of individual FTP archives for MUD-related material is proliferating, since there are only a few large sites archiving material related to MUDs in general, rather than specific servers. Therefore, this list is broken down by category.
o General
o LP and related
o Diku and related
o Other


o ftp.math.okstate.edu
A major MUD archive, with reasonably up-to-date versions of most clients and servers, the most up-to-date FAQs, pictures of MUDders, and documentation. The emphasis here is on Tiny-style MUDs, although this is a reasonably reliable place to find any client or server that lacks its own major FTP archive.

o ftp.tcp.com
This was once one of the most popular and up-to-date collections of MUD-related items. A lot of older things can still be found here, particularly those which have vanished off other FTP sites.

o ftp.game.org
An archive containing a mixture of code for a variety of different MUDs. Also serves as the primary distribution site for SMAUG (Diku/Merc derivative). It is indexed by a WWW page.

o glia.biostr.washington.edu
The archive for TinyFugue, the most popular MUD client available.

o WinSock Client Page
This page gives detailed, useful information about the various MUD clients that utilize WinSock.

o Mudslide
This is the home page for a MUD client written in Java.

o Macintosh MUD Resources
MUDding and the Macintosh: clients, servers, and other useful bits.


o ftp.tinymush.org
(Formerly the archive at caisr2.caisr.cwru.edu) The archive site for old MUDlists and general MUSH stuff (server code, clients, MUSHcode packages, and documentation). This is the official distribution point for TinyMUSH 2.0; the PennMUSH distributions here are out of date, and TinyMUSH 2.2 has its own distribution site. Nonetheless, there are some things of particular interest:
o MUSHcode Packages (various authors)
o TinyMUSH (version 2.0.10 patchlevel 5)
o TinyMUSH (version 2.0.10 patchlevel 6, also need patches)

o Kynn's MUSHcode Index
This is an index for MUSHcode which is publicly available via FTP.

o ftp.cis.upenn.edu
A directory here is used for Amberyl's personal (small) FTP archive, the distribution point for the TinyMUSH 2.2 source code, and other MUSH-server-related things, as well as Tess Snider's handy mtrans ascii-picture-to-MUSH-format translator. Development information for TinyMUSH 2.2 is also available from a password-protected archive (development team only).

o TinyMUSH for the Macintosh
The port of TinyMUSH for the Macintosh.

o mellers1.psych.berkeley.edu
An archive site for some useful utilities, including the logedit program, which edits the output of logs into a prettified format (specifically for MUSH, although the program can be tweaked for other types of MUDs). Also, this is the official distribution point for PennMUSH.
o logedit 2.5 (written in C)
o logedit 2.6.8 (requires perl)
o PennMUSH (source and patches)
o TinyMUX Source
This is the FTP site for the TinyMUX source. TinyMUX is a variant of MUSH based on TinyMUSH 2.0.10p6.

LP and Related

o ftp.ccs.neu.edu
The major archive site for LP-MUD and related drivers, including MudOS and DGD. Other related material is also available here, including mudlibs, documentation, and clients.

o nightmare.connected.com
Another archive site for LP-MUD and related drivers (MudOS, DGD, and CD). Drivers, mudlibs, clients and documentation are available here.

Diku and Related

o marble.bu.edu
A small archive of DikuMUD code (specifically the "Merc" variant), LP-MUD mudlibs and drivers, and assorted related things. It's not always kept terribly up-to-date.

o ftp.cs.jhu.edu
The official archive site for CircleMUD, a DikuMUD variant.


o ftp.parc.xerox.com
The archive site for MOO. It includes server code, core databases, and documentation. There is also a collection of papers.

o mcmuse.maricopa.edu
The archive site for MUSE. It also contains some MOO and ColdMUD-related things.

o csclub.uwaterloo.ca
The archive site for CoolMUD. There's also a WWW index to it.

o sticky.usu.edu
This is one of the archives for ColdMUD. ColdMUD has been abandoned by its original author, but various splinter groups, such as the ColdX projects, continue to work on it. More information is available on its home page.
