Here is a list of my plugins, and their current "up-to-date" versions, please check if there is an update for any of them you use. You can also check the plugin overview page on my site, Quow Go Moo:

Portable MUSHclient All-In-One:

Quow's all-in-one portable MUSHclient package is a simple package - download, unzip to a folder, and run the MUSHclient.exe program within - either directly or via Wine for Linux and Mac users. There is no install, no setup, no registry settings or anything else - you are straight into the Discworld MUD, with all of the latest versions of Quow's plugins pre-installed and configured for quick basic use, and fully customisable from there. You can move the folder around, switch it between computers and laptops on a USB, and keep using it without any problems. Note that Windows 10 users should avoid running MUSHclient from the main C: or Program Files folders, instead keep on another drive (eg D:\Discworld\), a USB stick, your desktop or your Documents folders.

Screenreader Portable MUSHclient All-In-One:

This is similar to the portable all-in-one package - download, unzip to a folder, and run the MUSHclient.exe program within - but is set up for screenreader users, with Quow's plugins set to output in special screenreader modes, and some essential tweaks and plugins added to allow screenreader software to read the screen right out of the box, and some extra tools thrown in, such as the ability to hold the ctrl-key and press F1 keys to re-read line numbers, and much more. The perfect package for a screenreader user to get going with on the Discworld without any complications.

Cow Bar & Minimap v4.41:

Quow's Cow Bar and Minimap provides you with a fully modular, and customisable UI, with many advanced features to completely change your Mushclient experience. The main Graphical Minimap and Map Tracker feature provides you with a resizeable, moveable window that displays a graphical map of your surroundings in any recognised village, town, city, guild area or building interior. It shows your exact room location, and tracks you as you move around. There is also an entire unified terrains map compiled by Quow to show you every possible terrain location currently available on the Disc. The plugin also allows you to instantly generate a speedwalk to almost any location from wherever you may be, generating a route automatically using pathfinding. It also allows you to look up recorded data for rooms, such as full shop inventories for shops with standard inventory listings. You can search for streets, shops, areas, NPCs and even items and quickly look up the location, browse inventories, and much more.

The customisable UI allows you to set up custom margin areas on any of all of the four sides or your Mushclient window. It contains eight fully customisable modules/windows: Vitals Bars, XP Rate, Shield/Group Window, Combat Stats, Ascii Map, Written Map, Communications and Hotspot timers. Each of these can be moved around, resized, and all have their own set of options, commands, features, and customisations. All modules are optional, and can be fully disabled if you do not like or want any of them running.

The Cow Bar from v3.9+ also includes the old, and now overhauled, MDT plugin. This completely changes the output of the written map and "map door text" sent by the MUD, into a sorted list, giving each room a "score" base on what is or isn't in the room, and showing the highest score rooms at the bottom of the list. You can easily modify, remove, or add your own highlights and scores - from things you hunt regularly, to letter delivery targets, to lootworthy richfolk, though there are many default highlights and categories already included.

Spellcheck, Mindspace and TM Helper v1.92:

This plugin will tell you how much mindspace all of your "spells" currently consume, and how much room you have left. It contains all spellcheck data for every wizard and witch spell to instantly look up, including your chances are of succeeding at every stage. For wizards, lookup any magical skill and see all spells that use that method, and get suggestions for spells that might help you TM that skill. You can also insert a list of spells and be told how many primaries each Order covers (from most to least) which may help with Order choices.

After installing, type "help mindspace" for a list of all the features and commands, and how to use them.

Mission and Job Timers v1.11:

Provides 60 minute timers for completion each of the job market mission types, all 5 dead-letter missions, plus currently Sto-lat pottery, Pennie-Laced, Genua furniture missions, the two Sam Slager sausage missions, and BP family missions for maximising your reward experience. Also has failure timers for returned dead letters or resigned job market missions, for getting a new mission. You can view all current on-going timers at any time by typing "missions" or "missions all".

Klein Bottle Helper v0.05:

This is an extremely simple plugin that triggers when you "look" at a valid (chargeable) klein bottle, and will add an extra output line informing you of how full it is and what size orbs (escaped spells) you can SAFELY capture without risk.

EFF Stats & Advice v0.12:

Tracks total blocks, misses, and knockdowns of your wizard or witch EFF floater. Once installed, type "eff stats" to show your block-rate, or "eff reset" to reset the numbers to 0. For wizards, type "eff check" for suggested shield weights at your bonus.

Standalone Map Door Text parser and Hunt Helper v0.04:

This (old, now superseded by the Cow Bar v3.90+) standalone plugin replaces the large and messy output of Discworld's "map door text" command, and replace it with a sorted, categorised, list of rooms with quick directions to each rooms, highlights, and more. Designed to make hunting around towns, cities etc. much quicker and more pleasant. Has many advanced features, such as multiple categories, regex matches, etc. After installing, type "help mdt" for a list of client-side commands added by the plugin. You do NOT need this plugin if you use Quow's Cow Bar v3.9+
