because the @go verb relies on a .rooms property to refer to rooms by name.
If you want to refer to a room by name, use @addroom <room#> name or
@addroom name <#> (I think both work) and then you can @go somewhere. Add
this to the default .rooms if you want players to be able to go to these rooms.

Remember that a core is a pre-made database, the server is the actual
release (1.7.9p2 in your case)

1.7.9p2 should work fine for you, although I'd recommend using 1.8.0beta3 if
you want or wait for the production version, however you'll need to make
some database changes to fix some things.
