    The issue with this is that having multiple textures for every wooden object in the game has a huge effect on performance. This ends up meaning we might make decisions between adding additional textures for an item, or adding a new item at all. The various wooden changes via shader that has been planned for a while lets us get around this performance hit cleanly, which also means we can have more items in game giving less of a performance hit, less work for the art team where they don't have to create 10 different textures for every wooden item in the game, and opens the door for more customization where _every_ item in the game that is classed as a wooden item will get the updated looks all at once, (not to mention opens the door for other item types - various metals for example - getting the same treatment of updated looks with minimal performance hits). It really is a good thing for everybody, it just means there may be a short transitional period where you lose the current customization options from certain wooden items that have it - in turn it lets you get the customization on ALL wooden items when the new shader system is implemented.

    Kylops Slain! Hello all, a Kyklops has been spotted and tomorrow at noon, central time zone (USA), a public attempt shall be made. Meet is at Tap Dance (TD) where the fighters will group up and then move out to where it was found. IF successful then a list of the names minus alts will be made using the now common paste bin method and one person shall roll from the list of names for loot, one winner per player. Hopefully you all can join in for a rousing good time had at least (mostly) safely. Bring tents and healing supplies as you may desire.

    The FSB thread got locked, but I really wanted to express my appreciation to Wox. He listened and within 1 day, made the changes to size and the uneven top. Rest of the changes regarding wood types are out of his realm to address (I believe that call is being made elsewhere), so I don't want this thread to be a rehash of something out of his control. Thank you Wox!!! Amazing work!

    I'd like to see a decorative fire wood holder to place next a fireplace or forge. It should be made of metal and only be able to hold kindling, woodscraps and logs. it would be smallish and attractive. The use of filigree would be nice.

    Thanks to all who showed up and gave great support, we unfortunately didn't plan for the corpse being ninja'd at a public event with specified loot rolling. *shrugs*. I guess Lunn/ Malevolence showed us (well you can insert your own comment about players from epic/wild). Thanks to all who came out and had a good time. The community in wurm is what makes it special!

    Thank you very much for organizing this event, truly a shame that the corpse got stolen at the end. Hopefully justice will be served. I hope though that what happened won't block anybody from organizing an other public slaying, it's nice to get together every now and then and have some fun & meet new ppl. Next time just need to be smarter and drop a deed to prevent stealing.

    The shader system for the woodtypes has been on hold for the past year waiting on another large project to be completed, which is due soon. We're hoping this project will, if not fix a lot of shader issues, allow us to start fixing them more easily - but we can only do so to a point, after which point it becomes a hardware problem due to setups not supporting GLSL shaders whatsoever, or having bad drivers for them as some players already know. We are looking to support those setups as we always have, but we're not going to gimp features of the client for the majority of players for the small percentage that can't or won't use shaders, in the same way that the client still runs on older hardware, but it may not look as good as newer setups. The shaders change is a long term plan that will hopefully make the client better now, but also better for the foreseeable future - keeping with the old way of multiple textures for every item simply isn't feasible.

    Greetings! I have changed the texture to get rid of some mirroring and I did remove the uneven boards on the roof. Some answers to your questions! *are they smaller than the old enormous ones? - Not what I'm aware of. *can't wait to see if these stops sticking through the floor boards. - Hope I fixed that *Do they open? - No *Wood type, Color, ect has all been removed? -Only wood types *One of my main concerns about the current FSB is its absolute absurdity in size, will this be remedied or are these just new textures..? I can change the size and make it smaller if you all want that. (if some have the urge to make a poll about it please do) *One other question, how will the "full"-look, look like? Did that get some love or was it left out all together? - I removed the Full version, Saroman and I talk about and decided to left it out. I think I never have seen a full one in game? *Rolf and dev team Please for the love of god use my hard drive like other mmo's fill it with thousands of pics of textures for different types of stuff. The average game now days is 30gigs on any hard drive and wurm is only 2.3 gigs thats 27.7 gigs of hard drive space for code and textures for you to play with - In other MMO (theme park) games the developers have pretty good control over their polygon and texture budget and the things rendered in different locations so they can have a lot of fancy stuff . We however don't have a clue what an area will look like, so if we allow players to spread out objects in an area and all those objects use 27.7 gig of data I think you can figure out what will happen Sandbox games are a completely different beast then "level/area designed" games. There are however different techniques to have "next gen graphics" in a sandbox, like you can add distance fog so you only can see 30 meters in front of you. Or have a really aggressive culling (you delete all objects that are further than x meters from the player) but there are almost always a trade off, visual quality vs the number of different objects that can be rendered. *How safe will food be in a container that the carpenter could not even saw the boards on the top even ? - The image of the model in the Op are the old model, I only changed the texture! /Cheers

    No not a new server it is Sarek National Park in Rolf's home country of Sweden. Now you know where he gets his ideas for new servers! (That might even be TUNDRA in the lower left, I am not sure) rainbows & unicorns! (the unicorns are being shy, the rainbow is not)

    Lets make this VERY clear, #1 Public fight on indy. Red dragon. Enki shows up and threatens to ban anyone who ninjas the corpse. (no deed). #2. MR Elite Squad Vs Aum. In this case Aum is deemed to grief by healing and the Enki kills it to prevent more "griefing". MR awarded the loot. #3. Public fight on celeb. Kyklops. Malevolence ninja's the corpse and Enki declines to get involved. You tell me this is right?

    I obviously don't expect you to support dinosaur builds, but when looking for new PCs, if I were to consider Wurming as important when choosing specs, it is near impossible to do so, as there is no recommended specs, and the shader problems seem to span across so many different graphic cards, that I can't see what to upgrade to. In the common issues and fixes thread, it is even recommend to turn off GLSL on certain high end systems (which ones?), so it is not just an outdated hardware problem. If I wait to upgrade until you have gotten most of these issues fixed, how long do I have to wait to upgrade? And when you have to reduce 10 different textures down to 1, in a game where looks matter (PvE side), would it really have been such a terrible idea to ask the players, which of the current looks they prefer? I have my own preferences, but I really don't care which one we would've ended up with, as long as it all matched. I want matching furniture! *throws tantrum*

    What i do is just use a Google spreadsheet. Change the column widths so that it is square boxes, not rectangles. then color it in as you like, add text, add notes/comments etc. And the easy part is you can then share the link with your village/alliance/friends since it is an online file. You can also allow edit permissions to a person or a group, whatever you want. I even paste in my analyze results as comments in that tile (cell) for future reference and to keep track of all the veins not exposed yet. Then i go further and have the deed mapped out on a separate tab for my villagers.

    With the outrageous number of bear attacks in Wurm I feel like bear mace would be an excellent addition to Wurm's weapon arsenal. The mace when sprayed could provide the valuable time needed to run away. I would also be happy with a rocket launcher or other bear deterrent.

    Agree with everyone else in this thread about the uneven planks on top. Always looked like crap, don't know why it's remaining on the overhaul. Now, a more important issue, in my opinion: Maiya brings up a good point. Wood colors/textures are not the culprits of the performance issues around here. I have 50+ bulk bins on my deed and my client's RAM usage remains the same. No lag, no problems. On the other hand, I can't be in the general area of 25 other players at any given time because my client starts eating up my RAM (goes from a normal 700k to 1.6-1.8m)and then the client goes non-responsive. The only solution to "fix" this is to kill the client through system processes. When I try and get back in the game, it takes 10 minutes for everyone's armor/hair/weapons to load up, and as they are doing so, my client's RAM starts skyrocketing again. So, yeah, if you're trying to clean up and fix performance issues, you're (the team) barking up the wrong tree here. Not to say this decision has anything to do with Wox. Honestly, I like the work that the guy does, not trying to bust his balls here. I just feel it's ridiculous how the team goes about "fixing" things around here: they often mess with things that aren't broke and ignore the things that are.

    -1 Different wood grain finishes on Items is one of the coolest aspects of the game and sets wurm apart from other games. You guys have been slowly getting rid of it with every new piece of furniture, it's really a shame I can't say I'm happy about this at all As for the new FSB look the doors are cool but to have the old roof is just silly......It makes it look half assed.

    Because rules or no rules the decision they made is just morally wrong. Anybody who has an ounce of conscience would agree with this. Plus as it was previously stated their opinion before was different on stealing a corpse in a public slaying ...

    I am absolutely sick of accidentally clicking on "Get Info" and burning this ability for the next 18 hrs. I have triggered this ability over 100 times and have only intended it's use 3 times - need to move all spell and meditation abilities to a sub menu - this is way worse than accidentally pouring water on the ground or bashing something you don't wish to bash, both of which have been moved to sub menus. I understand the need for combat related spells and meditation bonus abilities to be easily accessed - make key bindings for such abilities, but move from the main menu to a sub menu all these spells and meditation abilities

    I think its more to do with the tasks new players do, either bulk work, or setting up, a lot of digging, mining, brickmaking, they tend to do tasks that always guarantee a rare. While working on my new mine on my mag priest, I was averaging 4-5 rare shards a day, simply because the change of a rare on a roll is 100%

    Hi! The food storage bin model has been blessed with a new texture and it will be out on the next graphics update (hopefully tomorrow). The bad news is that I have removed the wood type textures for it. I have decided to do this due to performance, less textures for the same object are much better for graphics memory and rendering speed. In the end it will benefit us all. I hope you all can forgive me for this. In the future I hope we can implement some clever material shaders to handle things like wood types and dying items in much more efficient way Cheers!

    It has already been a year since they started removing woodtypes and promising shaders (and now the promise has been changed to a maybe according to Vox). What is it with Wurm and removing things in anticipation of an update, instead of waiting and remove with the update? Examples: Woodtypes and shaders. Olive yield nerf 15 months ago: "But we are aiming to increase it for all trees later on when we have implemented more things to do with the fruits and nuts." Recently they removed harvest keybind working to cut grass in anticipation of... something new.

    First off: I am not asking for the same bonus Libila has. However, Libila is also able to sacrifize favor items of the other gods, but only gets half the favor those gods do. E.g. Vynora has double favor on yoyo's, while Libila gets half of what Vynora gets. Magranon has double favor on door locks, while Libila gets half of Magranon's favor on them. Same for Fo / Lib on square pieces. Now, how comes... that when I sacrifize a 98.9 QL onion... I don't get ~20 favor like Libila does, but only 0.01 favor? Even if Libila would still remain very special in this case, I think farming would even be a viable way for farming, IF the other 3 gods only got 25% favor. However, I do deem this to be very unfair.

    Challenging moderation in public is similar to having someone's medical history or criminal record printed in the newspaper. It is bad publicity for both the moderator and the persons involved, and is of no benefit to anyone. Please contact the HGM if you wish to take this further.
