Player settings/config differences
The following differences are related to how you configure various settings on your character.
Page length: The command to set your page length is now 'pagesize'. Scroll still exists as a global alias to it.
Pageprompt: Can be used to change the new paging prompt to one of your own.
Notitles: Determines whether or not you see player titles in room. Player titles now independant of 'brief' setting.
Character Age: Your character age will be lower than in V2. It takes significantly more hours to reach the same mud age.
Description: To set your description you must now be in a safe room then 'desc edit'. This puts you into the building system editor. The rest of the mud will see you as (Editor) - similar to note mode.
Shortmap: Toggle whether or not the automap includes extra blank lines when the map is mostly empty.
Hunger: It generally takes longer to get hungry/thirsty and you will get a warning when it gets close. If you reach 'starving', healing stops completely.
Corpses: Once a player corpse is completely empty, it will decay very quickly.
Drinks: Drink containers can now be mixed to create various cocktails. To do this, get a drink container with one liquid, empty it some via drinking, then fill it from another drink source. There is no global table of drink types - builders can name them anything they like. The 'pour' command is now 'empty' - pour is a global alias to it.
Retier: You now retier yourself but still need an imm (for now) to give you the new pin. You cannot enter retier with equipment you won't be able to save after tiering, otherwise equipment will save through the retier process. Enter the remort chamber and go through the usual remort process (it doesnt matter which class you enter), then use 'retier' after doing your rauctions instead of 'remort'.
Train/Practice conversion: New syntax for these
Report: New option to report - 'report stats' shows your stats to the room.
Idle/Link dead: There is no 'void' here. People will see your eyes glaze over after too long idle, but you're still in the room.
