SMAUG's online building was inspired by (but contains no code from) the online building system that was used by Mozart MUD, and was written completely from scratch.

It was built upon the existing Merc 2.1 commands to set flags on objects (oset) and mobiles (mset) through allowing changes of object and mobiles to be reflected onto the index objects if a prototype flag is set. Room editing does not depend on this as there is only ever one instance of a particular room, but many instances of the same object or mobile.

SMAUG's online building system is quite extensive, allowing editing of nearly everything you could imagine, including editing and creation of rooms, objects, mobiles, resets, mudprograms/scripts, message boards, races, classes, spells, shops and more.
