    Finally got around to grinding out my first 100 skill. [06:56:53] Carpentry increased to 100 [07:00:57] Your title is now Legendary Architect. Shout out to Pingpong who had to listen to me whine thru the later stages of the grind. Glad this grind is over so I can get back to grinding if that make sense. Time to break that 10k skill point barrier.

    Foggy Docks Hi Everyone, A huge week for WU, with 1.3 finally landing, and what an impact! I've seen fantastic meals, pink bee hives, and cows no taller than your knee (the mods some people think of!) We've got a bit to cover though, so here goes! But first... Patch notes Deliverance maintenance On the 11th of march at 1400 server time we'll be taking down deliverance for some extended maintenance to address the hanging issues that have occurred recently. This will be a slightly longer maintenance, at around 2-3 hours, so if you want to play, maybe it's time to take a holiday to Exodus, or Release! 1.3 in WU and sale Wurm Unlimited has been abuzz this week with 1.3 finally landing, it's taken a while but WU is now filled with al lthe awesome content we've had for a few months. If you're looking to get in on the action, it's currently on sale at 33% off! We'll also be looking at more WU specific subforums over the coming weeks, for WU specific suggestions, and bettert bug reporting too, so keep eyes peeled. More animations Today also sees more animations come to the game, with the following being introduced: Groom Pull Throw (combat and snowballs) Take Drop These will continue to create that more immersive feel when playing and we'll continue to look at animations that increase that as we go on. Hell horse and horse gear This update also saw the hell horse colours, as well as hell horse equipment and bridles (bridles are awaiting a client update due out shortly!) The hell horse colours are incredibly awesome, and I have to say, this one is definitely my favourite, but which is it? dun dun dun.... Esert makeover As many of you know, we ran the Esert starter deed makeover competition this week, and a clear winner by a mile was the redesign! I'm keen to see this design come to life, so congratulations to Joelle and crew. You'll have to keep your eyes peeled on the area! Community content So this weeks community content is a little different. With 1.3 out in WU youtube streamer Weem is back, and this time he brought friends! Weem did a fantastic series of WU on the Mythmoor server and starting tomorrow he's launching his new series - called Follywood - on the otherlands server. I can't wait to see it, and in the mean time, I strongly suggest checking out his previous series here: That's it from me this week, I hope you all have an awesome weeekend cooking and crafting, and as always, keep on Wurming! - Retrograde & the Wurm team

    Wow! There's a Twitter event for that but I never bothered tracking it on Niarja because it's so incredibly unlikely. I guess I'll have to add it now.

    Congratulations, depending on server size there is VERY VERY small chance for this to happen. This chance is roughly: 0.000024% chance on 2k servers (Deliverance, Exodus, Pristine, Release) 0.000006% chance on 4k servers (Independence) 0.0000015% chance on 8k servers (Xanadu) Conclusion? You are more likely to win some lotteries than getting hit by lightning in Wurm.

    As there seems to be an interest from players regarding the event i will share the relevant info. Unfortunatelly i did not get a screen capture in time. [Event tab] [22:19:32] YOU ARE HIT BY LIGHTNING! OUCH! [22:19:32] A strange dizziness runs through your head, eventually sharpening your senses. [Skill tab] [22:19:32] Mind speed increased by 3.1010 to 23.7014 Each piece of equipped armor and weapons received 20 damage (ouch) and no title

    Design by player committee is how we got rare ovens changing food affinities, which is just horrible and inconsistent. The dev team need to make the decisions - it's nice when they listen to player points of view, but ultimately, they're responsible for the game, and they should be making the decisions. Also, like pretty much all human beings, the dev team probably respond better to calm, reasoned argument than emotional screaming about how the devs clearly hate you personally.

    Eve online is a game where the people vote in CSMs (customers/players) that work with the dev team to produce positive content, it has worked great for the game. Proven sub numbers over the life of game (voted in by the players) Haven and Hearth gets a lot of feedback from community - and makes changes off that and it works. ( of course they rush out some changes and upsets the community, but they listen ) World of Warcraft, Blizzard, publicly tests all patches and game changes prior to release, and listens to the majority of players feedback who are testing the changes. ( and a lot of things change prior to a release ) At the end of the day, you wont make everyone happy, but my point is communication is a big part of any "online game". Wurm is not a AAA title like your comparing it to, it is a niche game which has a lot of potential with below 4000 premium accounts http://jenn001.game.wurmonline.com/mrtg/paying.html If you read what I wrote, I am asking for more communication between the development of the game and the customers (prem players). At the end of the day, I am content on how this change ended Thank you Budda. I also, appreciate them considering items like lumps, where you can now combine them and send at a weigh limit versus per item.

    Please remove the indicator light for rifts in chaos. Let rifts just like uniques be randomly found around the map. The rifts are never completed because there are 2 indicators... One you know people are at the rift as the mission progresses and you also know EXACTLY where they are. The light is not needed on chaos.

    Simple and useful, just a place to hitch animals like we already do on carts, but they'll be facing the object instead of facing away from it. I suggest 2 designs: a simple pole for just one or two horses, and a wide one for several animals Like this example 'Cause fenced areas may not be what you wanted your deed to look like, and you can also put those in front of buildings to make like taverns Please support the idea to make this happen

    You could add saddlebags and give a horse inventory space. Allow them to be locked, gives horses permissions that way.

    It's not viable. Base damage is too low even with every possible buff in the game, and this is before we even count in armour reduction. Dual wielding is also very bad as your offhand weapon does quite literally just about nothing and the developers have made no step into introducing viability to either of these things again in the past seven or eight years. toodles.

    Many of us are still very unhappy with this change to hellhorses, even moreso now that they have made them more interesting to use since the new colors and gear appearances. 1.5 months isn't a huge length of time if you have several people living on a deed that all need constant replacement hellies for wagons and carts. This is especially true since replacement breeders have to be bred also, and often the babies seem to come in batches by sex, so it can sometimes take 2-3 breed cycles to even replace the breeding females because everything wants to come out male. Add in the time it takes for babies to arrive and the occasional failed bad breed and yeah, its a PITA. The end result is tearing your hair out breeding hellies nonstop, and god forbid you need to take a break for a week or two for real life. The fact that they have so many substages to aging that we as players cannot see is also a problem, because we have no clue when they are going to become unreliable and unhitch. I have asked several times about an examine feature so that we could at least tell when to expect this, similar to the pregnancy timer. Retro you stated you thought this would be a good idea, but there has been 0 further word on it happening. Nobody feels comfortable about gearing these hellies, because they can/will unhitch and run away with your gear, and since the idea of using them is better speed nobody wants to just use them ungeared. We have been given numerous reasons/stories as to why this was done. The latest you mentioned here is: So, unlike every other skill in the game, we have no benefit to raising taming and body control? Most people that use hellies are already capable of taming and riding them. Even those that aren't yet, I am sure, would be happier having it made much simpler and more reliable by requiring those skills to ride and hitch them, and having the horses remaining hitched and reliable to use until death like they were prior. At least that way it is something that you can work towards and have an ongoing benefit, as opposed to a penalty you can never overcome that will eventually bite you in the rear end. I used to love my hellies, but they are now such a pain to replace and use and are so unreliable that I killed all of my hellie breeders to spare myself the headache of losing more gear. These new updates don't excite me, they just make me sad and seem like a waste of time. Breaking something and then making it prettier doesn't make people want to resume using it.

    protecting corpses has been discussed and will be looked at as we go on. Hitching hell horses past aged at this point isnt in the plans, as it stands it bypasses all skill requirements that are used as the tradeoff for the hell horses speed boost (taming/Charm and 31 body control)

    I had number 1 as well. This is an issue with Intel integrated graphics. If you have a computer that also has an nVidia card or similar, check nVidia control panel and make sure only that graphics card is used for wurm. 2. May be due to running 32-bit java on a 64-bit machine. Pasting logs might help us point you in the right direction. I had a third issue that users may come across as well, Wurm didn't play well with my touch screen AT ALL. I.e, I had instant crashes because of it. A fourth issue is the UI scaling at extreme resolutions, like 4k. You can make the text bigger, but graphical elements of the UI stay the same size. None of these issues I believe are due to Windows 10 at all.

    Hell no, big -1 from me. Finding the right traitor is hard enough without having to contend with useless left-over traitors from previous uncompleted missions. Or the traitor traitors. If this bug has really been fixed, then good riddance and may it never darken our virtual doorsteps again.

    It strikes me, that very many chars get said `hello` to by some random passing stranger, but there's no one at home. I have witnessed a few assuming ignorance, which is ridiculous, i agree. but there we have it. There are many reason to sit a character in the game and go afk, in WO you can run more than one window and have more than one char so this happens alot. The suggestion; Maybe change the colour of our name when afk, or have an AFK tag sit next to it. one argument against this is that `most people don't bother with the afk command`.. well of course they don't, it doesn't affect local.

    Xanadu is nice and INSANELY huge but there are a few things to have in mind: 1. Mountains, mountains everywhere It's the most difficult landscape to explore and build, by far. Most ppl need to basically reshape entire hills and dump insane amounts of dirt into the sea if they want to have any space at sea level. Newcomers lack both the skill and the knowledge to accomplish that. Moving stuff around can be a pain. Most forests have a good deal of steep terrain that horses won't climb, meaning that cutting and moving wood will be harder. 2. Lots of mobs on the north, no mobs at the south From my experience, all northern Xanadu is swarming with mobs. I mean, INSANE amounts of aggressive mobs all over the place. Great for grinding up your FS and you never run out of food, but definitely very hard for newcomers. Every time I go around my deed to mine or cut some wood I usually spend most of the time luring tons of mobs to my guards. On the other hand, sailing on the south I see like no mobs at all. 3. It has more horses swimming than walking As you probably guessed from 1.1 and 1.2, one does not simply travel by land. You'll be sailing all the time. There's a lot of lakes, so ppl need to build tunnels everywhere. And if you sail around the island, specially around D24, you'll see "seahorses" by the hundreds. 4. Feels like farming in Colombia The terrain is just too steep to farm. You would be better off having a farm on any other server. 5. It's usually faster to go to another server's Rift The rift usually spawn near the center, Xanadu is too large, traveling by land is a pain and sailing inland crossing all those tunnels takes a lot of time. Not worth it. 6. Despite all that, you'll love it Xanadu is a beautiful place and there's many friendly players living in there who would be happy to assist you (including me). Keep those tips in mind and be prepared. Here the newbie's first priority is a rowing boat.

    archery is utterly weird, at rift you have champ ogres / warmasters / whatever that are easilly visible but still 'you fail to get a clear shot'... would be good if creatures height, slopes and fences height was taken into account. Basicly, if you can see it, no reason not to put an arrow in it!

    Here it is! a compilation of all the hours sailing around xanadu. **Warning ---Due to camera movements and the fast timelapse the video can be a lot for the eyes --You have been warned** The time lapse was an after thought, but i decided to go for it anyway. Also, first part maybe a little dark, hang in there at about 5 mins its lighter.

    There's no abuse, or any real thought process beyond: The Game is the Game is the Game is the Game. There's a long line of posts like this, warnings or patches, and otherwise very short-sighted and non-beneficial changes that affect bottom line negatively. I honestly believe decisions are made by gamers first, and nothing more. Really thinking about it, the costs involved in taking the time to 'discuss' something of which offers absolutely no business value and then proceed to further increase the vitriolic attitudes of your customer base is very foolish and amateurish. Almost always in the real world, things of this nature go through a filter. Until these attitudes change, and things like this stop happening, I'd expect the negative counts of everything to continue. There's a lot more to this, with it both simple and complex, but i actually get paid to do this. So good luck. <3 wurm.

    1. a. If it is a laptop, which has a dedicated graphics chip installed, make sure that the computer uses the graphics chip ONLY. b. tweak settings in the Compatibility tab of Wurm settings if you have an integrated VGA only - usually the issue is with the Intel chipsets and present using Windows 7, 8 or 10. 2. Make sure that ONLY the 64bit Java is installed on the computer (check it in the Control Panel - Programs and Features and/or Control Panel - Java. Usually the crashes are caused by using the 32bit Java. Simply remove the 32bit one unless you specifically need it. If you need to keep it installed, you can always start Wurm with java 64 (inserting the full path of the 64bit java, in my case C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_121\bin\javaws.exe) editing the command line executed by the startup icon. This option is mostly for WO, as WU should by default use the java packaged with it, it can worth a try if everything else fails Edge: it is not a finished product, even a lot of MS sites don't work correctly with it, disabling it was a good resolution IMHO.

    The circumstances of my life and the global, environmental, and political climate of the world pushed my subconscious to desire to (again) seek out the safety of Wurm's mantle. I live in a dank metropolis and can't currently move due to financial and health issues. I yearn to run through open, unrestricted, unpolluted fields (good luck being able to do that in our world), to encounter mystery and surprises, to travel. I want to live in a rural area and have a cozy tiny house, off grid, with a lush backyard and a chicken coop. Yes, that is one of my main dreams. Wurm offers this to me. It may be just "Java", but you, Wurm, give me serenity and beauty, my own crops, animals to care for, seas to cross. All of us here are seeking something, and there is no shame in any of it. Some of us are quite addicted, and addiction comes from some deep place, and I honor it. I honor it in you. How many of us here seek respite in an isolated deed and do not care to interact? No shame. I honor all of it. How many just want someone to chat with about stupid things while entertaining their DNA's yearning for "hunting and gathering"? It's all honorable. Some of us may be in a good place behind the screen. Others may not be. We're all here in this moment in time, and I like to pause and marvel at it. In my heart, I don't feel that we'll always have the internet (where the world is going and etc). But that we got together in this alternate universe and created and communicated with one another using something akin to telepathy - is nothing short of a wonder. Poignant post? I have that touch, I guess. May our Wurm remain green, its seas alive, its bounty available to everyone regardless of income, its kings and queens loyal to their subordinates, and its Impalongs plentiful. <3 Thank you Wurm Online <3

    Mining forward normally results in a variable being included which creates a slope up or down on the tile we reveal. Removing that variable and setting it to always be flat would remove a major annoyance. Add a setting so that it only works this way for GMs (using a wand) would be a nice feature as well.

    We definitely need an East Asia themed wurm update where there are more asian-style items such as bamboo items and vegetation, tatami floor mats/etc and asian style buildings. That could bring a lot of players to WO, I know I'd at least make a free character to check it out.
