Hosting Change - 8 June 2012
Turf has moved servers. It remains on turf.org 4000, but the IP address
has changed from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
Turf 4.22 - 9 January 2009
Turf 4.22 has been released. A
very minor bugfix release, this verion makes it possible to create pills
in a cauldron that have the 'recover mana' spell on them.
Turf 4.21 - 7 February 2003
Turf 4.21 has been released. This
version mostly features player ideas such as sub-divisions of the Heroes'
League and indicating class leaders in the 'who' listing. Vacation time has also been changed to
accomodate Fastfox's complaints that 21 days of vacation time wasn't
sufficient for those who may return after long summer breaks. Vacation
grant has now been reduced to 14 days, but extra days may be easily
gained by those who actively play the game.
Game Mechanics - 8 January 2003
There's been a recent spate of notes on Turf complaining about certain
Hero issues and suggesting ideas for changes to the game at Hero level.
In response we're composed a brief discussion of Turf's game mechanics which details why certain
features such as taxes exist, how death affects experience points, and
why we seem to ignore player ideas for Hero-level changes. If more
points pop up in notes we might add more details, but hopefully you'll
find this answers many of your questions.
Jupiter has set up a web-based discussion board for those wanting to
discuss ideas and complaints in more detail: http://www.turf.org/clans/no/board/index.php?board=ideas.
Turf 4.20 - 14 May 2002
The latest version of Turf is out, with the most popular two changes
probably being the renew skill and
improved coronary care for the mobiles. There are loads, of changes,
however, including lots of nice little touches from player ideas, some
changes to clan voting policies, some PK changes, new socials, and a
horde of changes to help players find equipment around the game.
As usual, be sure to read the full list of
changes, and if you submitted an idea then see if it went in.

Turf 4.10 - 8 December 2001
Turf 4.10 features three new areas in the 30-40 range as well as
an extension to Stargate, three new commands,
affects, and a
config extension for automatically
recalling from combat if link dead. There have been changes to
the cauldron and herbs system to allow a greater range of more
varied results. Many new commands should also accept
'all'/'all.' as their arguments in place of specific object names thanks
to an major internal change in Turf. Expect more commands to
accept 'all'/'all.' in the next version, as well.
