Mudlet 3.16 – Holidays edition

Happy Holidays! This update adds an advanced text analyser, color map support for Starmourn's map download, and various quality of life improvements.

New text analyser

SlySven has worked hard and added a new text analyser to Mudlet! Once enabled in the options, select some text and hover over the right-click option to see a detailed breakdown the characters and which code points they use. This advanced option can help with writing triggers or Lua code when working with non-Latin languages or Unicode characters 🎄

Map colour support for Starmourn

A new game launched this month that has a lot of people excited about it - Starmourn! The game has out of the box support for getting a map out to Mudlet, but to a mixup, the colours the map uses weren't compatible with Mudlet. A Starmourn player jgh713 decided to take the matters into their own hands and added support for the colours, which now show up properly:

2D view
3D view


Thanks for the code improvements in this release to: jgh713, JorMox, keneanung, Leris, SlySven, and vadi2.

Thanks for the ongoing translation efforts to:
Leris, Guilherme Campos, 蛤? (uglyfrog), Shaktty, and Garagoth.

    The download link at for 3.16 is downloading a .dmg file instead of an application like the previous versions. Am I doing something wrong? @Vadi

    ETA: Er, disregard. When I opened my Mudlet3.15 shortcut it opened to "Installing" and then actually opened 3.16. Spoke too soon, I suppose.

  • It's been a .dmg file for some years now.
  • Huh that's odd. All my mudlet downloads in the download folder from 2.1 to now say application except 3.16. Oh well, works regardless!

  • Love it! Thank you, @Vadi and the mudlet team!  <3
