Beyond BYOND: Standalone games and Flashing Forward in Announcements
In my opinion, requesting the attention of the BYOND owners to implement or test new features with a large scale BYOND project is entirely reasonable and not a good reason to show animosity. I do not believe that Silk gets special attention for any reason other than he has reasonable requests of the BYOND staff for accomplishing a goal and Tom and Lummox have always been very helpful towards developers here.
On that note though, I appreciate what you are saying Tom, I may take you up on that.
The system also only supports a subset of DM, primarily lacking the 4.0 skin/interface system, although that may be something we can update over time. But, as you can see, keyboard, mouse, input, output, and map-based support all works quite well, and this should be a very exciting direction for BYOND games!
Once I get more content and art into my latest single-player project, I'd be happy to help test it. It's entirely map-based.
