Okay guys. So in my spare time over the past week I've been dabbling with forces I ought not to Lua and have produced a basic, functional harvester for MUSHclient (hence the thread's clever title). Now, I'm not some aficionado of code that can make things beautiful and perfect, but after some rigorous bouts of testing I can confirm that -this works to the extent it should- as far as I can tell.
Provided it's 1) something of a necessity for herbalists in the market and 2) really, really ugly code once you take it apart, I'm offering it for the low cost of free. Feel free to let me know if you try it out, and a testimonial or two as to how well it handles would be great if you have the time! I expect someone, somewhere finding a way to break it, which for me will be great practice, so don't be shy at pinging me.
Download the plugin [here
], and hhelp will be your guide.
I should also note that, if you saw my Real World Rave a few days ago about the little utility that nudged me into this project, the same is available as part of this plugin. Nothing huge, but ab <herb> will give a countdown to said herb's peak and hibernation months. Not included are restrictions based on 'flanking' months (the month before/after hibernation), so use caution and check your herbs if for some reason you don't want to pick things kinda out of season (though if you know what you're doing, is not a problem).
Also, users of this plugin are morally obligated to help me replant the world over, just sayin'.
