ClubFloyd Transcript:
Trouble in Sector 471 by Arthur DiBianca
As played on ifMUD on October 2 - 9, 2022

The idea behind ClubFloyd is that each week at a pre-arranged time, a group of people meet online to cooperatively play a game of interactive fiction.

Below is a transcript of Trouble in Sector 471 written by Arthur DiBianca. Trouble in Sector 471 was released as part of the 2022 Interactive Fiction Competition, in which it took fifth place. It was nominated for three Xyzzies: Best Puzzles, Best Individual Puzzle, and Best Implementation. You can learn more about the game, including how to download it, by visiting IFDB.


WARNING! Below you will find a transcript of people playing this game, and it goes without saying that the transcript is full of spoilers. So, if you've never played this game, and think you might like to at some point, I do not recommend reading any further. Instead, you might want to return to the interactive fiction page.

CF | "Alert. Power outage in Sector 471. Repeating, power outage in
CF | Sector 471. We all know what this means. Summoning Exter-17 for
CF | dispatch."
CF |
CF | Uh oh. This might be it. The last couple of jobs didn't go too well.
CF | You'd better get this one right, or you may suffer the fate of a
CF | low-usefulness bot.

Knight_Otu says, "Or at all."
DavidW says, "That was the block of periods at the start. I think it does display."
DavidW says, "but maybe only in a different pane as far as the interpreter is concerned."
Knight_Otu says, "Hm, I thought Floyd wouldn't do side panels at all, but I wouldn't really know."
Jade says, "com and zap"
DavidW says, "Anyway, note that the command set is very small. We have cardinal directions, LOOK, WAIT, STATUS (ST), COM, and ZAP."
DavidW says, "COM is our TALK TO nearby bot command."
Jade says, "so the map is huge"
DavidW says, "ZAP is our destroy the nearby bug command."
DavidW says, "Yes. I assume there's 64 rooms in total."
DavidW says, "We begin at the northwest corner of the map."
Knight_Otu says, "And I presume LOOK is room description only. As often, no examine."
Jade says, "Then I start a map"
DavidW says, "The map is a completely regular 8 by 8 grid."

CF |
CF |
CF | Hall
CF | This dimly-lit hallway runs west to east. You can make out a closed
CF | door to the south. Something is embedded in the wall by the door.
CF |
CF | Gree-8 stands here, kind of drooped over and motionless.

CF | This is the power regulation center. You can barely make out a lot of
CF | what must be complicated gadgetry. Doorways lead west and south.
CF |
CF | Engi-12 is sitting at a console, frozen in the act of something.
CF | Turning a knob, maybe.
CF |
CF | You can hear a soft gurgling sound to the south.

CF |
CF | Primary Power Conduit
CF | This is where power is supposed to enter the sector. A stripe is
CF | painted around the walls. Large transfer contacts project from the
CF | ceiling and floor. A doorway leads north.
CF |
CF | Oho! A big bug is blocking the power supply! It's a furry gray mass,
CF | wedged in between the contacts. Little sparks pop all around it. It
CF | chuckles and gurgles in a very unpleasant manner.
CF |
CF | >
DavidW says (to ClubFloyd), "zap"
CF | >
CF | > ZAP
CF |
CF | You take aim with your pest neutralizer and fire. There's a loud BLAM,
CF | and the bug disintegrates into a multitude of little particles!
CF |
CF | Press SPACE to continue.
DavidW pushes the green 'space' button.
CF | Press SPACE to continue.
CF |
CF |
CF |
CF | With a mighty hum, bright blue power begins flowing between the
CF | contacts again. You hear a variety of distant sounds as the sector
CF | comes back to life.
CF |
CF | You receive a message from Central Processing:
CF |
CF | "Power detected in Sector 471. Primary objective complete. Auxiliary
CF | sector scan initiated......complete. Additional pest incursions
CF | detected. New primary objective: eliminate pests.

CF |
CF | Primary Power Conduit
CF | This is where power enters the sector. An orange stripe is painted
CF | around the walls. Large transfer contacts project from the ceiling and
CF | floor, and a wide stream of blue power hums between them. A doorway
CF | leads north.
CF |
CF | > Knight_Otu says, "Ah, so crystal ROX."
DavidW says, "I don't know if the orange stripe is important or not yet. I've seen orange stripes in other rooms."

CF |
CF | Engi-12 says, "I deal with the primary and auxiliary power regulators.

Knight_Otu says, "Do say when one of us should take over."
DavidW says, "That's all Engi has to say. Some bots have more to say, but they mostly say just one thing at a time unless status changes."
DavidW says, "well, you can take over at any time, really."
Knight_Otu says (to ClubFloyd), "rox"

CF |
CF |
CF | Chip Analysis
CF | Several long counters are covered with chips and circuit boards, and
CF | various analytical instruments are hanging on the walls. It's pretty
CF | disorderly, to be honest. Between two of the instruments you see a
CF | depiction of a lightning bolt followed by two dots. Exits lead east
CF | and west.
CF |
CF | > DavidW says, "I think the lightning bolt is the first symbol of a three symbol code. I haven't found the other two symbols yet."
Knight_Otu says, "Of course, why the unit that repairs the power would not be equipped with low-light vision is a question for the ages."
DavidW says, "Some of the bot complain about how the place is built."

CF | Switchboard
CF | A ring-like console fills the room. It is dotted with countless
CF | interface ports. There are exits in all directions.
CF |
CF | Oper-4 sits inside the ring, constantly connecting and disconnecting
CF | its twelve interface appendages.
CF |
CF | Oper-4 says, "I'm sorry, but we're still backlogged from the power
CF | outage."
CF |
CF | > Knight_Otu asks, "So OPERator, GREEter, ENGIneer... what was our designation again?"
DavidW says, "I forget."
Knight_Otu asks, "So OPERator, GREEter, ENGIneer... what was our designation again?"
Jade says, "map"
Knight_Otu says, "EXTER, it turns out."
DavidW says, "Exter-17"
Knight_Otu says, "(Accidentally hit the up arrow there.)"
DavidW says, "We're an EXTERminator"
Knight_Otu says, "I suppose we are less of a power restorer than we thought."
Jade exclaims, "ah!"
Knight_Otu says, "Interesting that we have a six letter code, while so far the other bots have four letter codes."
DavidW says, "You can try to talk to Oper here, but they're too busy to talk back."
Knight_Otu says (to ClubFloyd), "com"

CF |
CF | "Sorry, I'm quite busy."

CF | Spindle Room
CF | There are various pieces of strange equipment in this room, but the

CF | Safety Override
CF | This room is dominated by a wall panel that shows three symbols: a
CF | lightning bolt, a banana, and an eye. An arrow is pointing to the
CF | second symbol. A purple crystal is embedded next to the panel.
CF | Doorways lead east and west.
CF |
CF | The arrow moves to the third symbol.

CF | Thermal Exchange
CF | Numerous pipes run along the walls and ceiling, occasionally venting
CF | puffs of steam. There are exits north, east, and south.
CF |
CF | Engi-18 stands by a control console, watching the readouts closely.

CF | Teleport A
CF | This appears to be a teleportation chamber. Everything pulses with a
CF | soft blue glow. A white crystal is embedded in the ceiling. There are
CF | exits in all directions.

CF | Trash Repository
CF | Anything that gets thrown away in this sector ends up here. It's nicer
CF | than you might expect, though. An orderly trash carousel occupies the
CF | east part of the room, and next to it stands a pedestal with a green
CF | crystal. The exit is west.
CF |
CF | The trash carousel contains a square plate.

CF | East Hall
CF | This shiny metallic corridor continues south, and there are doorways
CF | in the other three directions. The debris has been cleared.
CF |
CF | Har-5, a structural repair bot, stands here with a look of
CF | satisfaction.

CF | Decorated Hall
CF | This hallway continues north and south. The walls here are decorated
CF | with what must be bot-created artwork. It's pretty procedural stuff,
CF | but at least it's colorful. A doorway leads east, and there is a
CF | closed door to the west. An orange crystal is embedded next to the
CF | door.
CF |
CF | Misc-7 stands in the corner, looking quite immature.

CF | Insulated Hall
CF | The hall continues north and south. This section is covered with thick

CF | Checkered Hall
CF | The hallway bends here, continuing north and west. The walls are
CF | colored in a blue-and-white check pattern. There are also exits east
CF | and south.
CF |
CF | Tag-9 is here, gazing at the walls.
CF |
CF | Tag-9 notices your square plate and stares at it. "Wow," it says.

CF |
CF | Tarnished Hall
CF | The hall from the east ends here. Unlike most of Sector 471, the walls
CF | and floor are kind of tarnished. A doorway leads south, and there is a
CF | closed door to the west. A red grab-handle is installed near the door.
CF |
CF | Tag-9 follows after you.

DavidW asks, "I think it's west of Insulated Room?"

CF | Bug Lab
CF | Several tables are covered with bug examination equipment. A shelf
CF | holds a number jars, each labeled with analytical information about a
CF | bug. You can exit to the east.
