As an outsider who has never used the OAUA world-hack, I was disappointed to see that there isn't a list of what is included in it, how to use it, and what can be done with it. I noticed the last released included some bug-fixes, but what's at the heart of the worldhack?...
When it was released, the Oriental Adventures Worldhack for FRUA included lengthy discussion on the Yahoo group site for FRUA. Though one of its prime creators, Brian O'Donnell, is no longer with us both Darius Whiteheart and Hans are. Both Darius and Hans have communicated here and on Yahoo regarding the worldhack.
There is a separate folder just for the OA Worldhack and the created modules that can be played with it, here: http://frua.rosedragon.org/pc/hacks/OA_Worldhack/
The OASetup.zip contains html documentation that has been provided by its creators with separate player's manual and a designer's manual.
It is a shame that interest is outweighed by sloth.
A much more in-depth procedural of the ins and outs of the OA Worldhack would best be described by its creators, as I am just one of the fans who followed the inception, creation, and conclusion of the project when it was begun years ago. Brian O'Donnell's specific works have been highlighted by his own articles in the UA newsletters over the years, and without his direct influence and explanation, our own nologgie has picked apart some of the coding of some of the customised toolset events that Brian created.
I could download some documentation. But, what if I want to know without going to all that work? What if I want to sticky the information to the top of this board? What if I just want to be lazy?
When Hans released his latest venture, The Snow-Woman's Daughters
), he included a link to the documentation file... a text that clearly describes the process by which to enjoy the offering. Likewise, the documentation accompanying the worldhack itself is pretty clear. I can only feel bad for the frustration that must attend a designer whose hour and hours and hours of investment is foiled by laziness.
