It sounds like a good idea, but since I have a Real Job (tm) I don't
expect to have a lot of time to invest in MUDding.

Since this is a MUD, however, it would be interesting to see if you
improve your combat units -- i.e. make them go from green to regular to
veteran, and possibly develop some elite units.  This is something that
would get me interested, because I could then develop the forces that
I would want to have.

One thing that I don't see happening with this is the "macro-scale"
of view that you can get on a tabletop.  In the game, most weapons have
very long ranges (e.g. lasers can shoot up to 60").  How can you
this with a 80x24 vt100 terminal screen and still give the feeling that
the line of battle stretches for a couple of miles?
