  1. I'm at a loss on this, i've used WA for a couple years or so now with no issues. A couple weeks back i formatted my PC and did a clean install. As was necessary i redownloaded WA and now it messes up when loading and half the features don't appear. On first clean install i get an immediate error window telling me i have to restart WA Then it restarts and half the features are missing with 5 errors Anyone know what i did to screw this up? xD
  2. Fixing up the roads i messed up with the canal, connecting all the bridges and doing it in shiny shiny slate Gonna be fun getting back to that much dirt stocked much.
  3. I moved to Exodus from Chaos last year, lived with some friends at The Old Contemptibles for a while but couldn't quite deal with the old itch to have a project to work on. So in November Magranon's Rest was born as a "bit of a project to play around with no big deal". Thankfully i took many screenshots to show how much i lied to myself in that first day. So i found my location, spoke with the locals Mappy and Cyborg over at Centrum about giving them a new, slightly insane, neighbour and got to work: Deedplanner image of the start. I made some calculations after opening an entrance at the base of the mountain, exactly 900 slope from the top edge of the mine entrance to the height of the token. This will be important later Marked out the deed border with banners temporarily and set up my temp workshop, The Gravy House. I started a ramp around to use the dirt i'd dug up and then realised it would take far too long to dirt ramp up, so for the first...2 months i believe, WALL LADDER. Here began the true first stage of madness, the decision to hollow out the entire mountain, deed is a 51x51 and by the end of these images i have a mine well over 1000 tiles. Naturally that wasn't enough for me so i also mined the ceilings up, then lowered the floors to max ceiling height. At the time of writing this, the floors are about 1/3 completed levelling down. Sorry about the lighting, mines are derpy to take pictures of. How i fuel myself, boozebed. Here we have a rare sighting of another person stupid enough to show up and work with me, believe this was Mappy...possibly Cyborg. Yes i conscripted my neighbours. Mad attempt to deal with the lighting or i screwed up and needed ash for concrete? You decide. I tried to be smart by only storing 50+QL rocks...i still ended up with about 50,000 xD This is how it looks at the moment for the entryway, after this pic you must suffer through several boring and samey images of a cave ramp. Why you ask? The reason is simple, because i spent weeks making this god forsaken ramp and it is BEAUTIFUL. MARCH 19th EDIT with unstable client dynamic lighting! Understably, I hope, at this point i wanted to give up on life and settled instead for putting the mine on hold so i could BE OUTSIDE. Starting with a platform up at the token level. Strategic lava tiles are used for destroying insolent ore veins on my ramp. That top platform became a farm for a while, man's gotta eat. Now i realised the time had come to begin the first platform of three that will eventually stack together to reach the token height. Needed more dirts and ended up with the start of a moat. Hmm...water....idea forming perhaps. Gonna need to fill this in... Wheeeeeee dumping dirt out is so much more fun than levelling! Somtimes i just sorta get distracted by my own ideas. This one was...."hmm should i surface mine another platform above the token area? It ended in my planting the one and only tree at Magranon's Rest. Lovingly wild growth casted and enchanted by Shellbee. Then those damned horrible evil devs gave us three wide mine entrances and i HAD TO HAVE ONE. Problem was it looked utterly terrible without flattening out the tops of the entrances as well as the bottom. This whole process took 2 days because....digging the goddamn dirtwall back down, also i screwed up like 3 times. It's beautiful...... With the addition of the bridge and needing more dirt I went back to that water idea from earlier CANAAAAALLLLLL. Reasonably certain I drove a number of my alliance insane with my canal madness. Not just dug, but also dirt casted to rock level depth. Shout out to Bonefly of Black Brigade for not murdering me for slapping a canal in front of his deed o.o Place is finally starting to come together That rock layer on the West side was in the way. It had to go. Deedplanner screenshot That's it for now folks, about 4 months of my "small project". I will continue to chronicle it and get those platforms raised! At the time of posting this the first platform is complete and filled with dirt but it's night time and i refuse to take screenshots in that lighting so that one can wait March 9th post - Plotting out the Nomads and Centrum Canals. March 10th post - Diving board! March 14th post - Canal progress allows caravel now! New bridge up across to Nomads March 20th post - Spring arrived and i updated with new paving, smoothed out canal and the start of the horrors of making slate slabs for the walls. April 14th post - Alright heres a little preview of the work Angelklaine has been doing in the mine while i've continued to play in the dirt.

If i missed someone do yell at me. If anyone wants to come visit you've got the location up at the top of this post South end of the NE desert. Deed is open access and if i'm online i'll even feed ya Edit - Forgot a shout out to Tovarishtito, who sold me about a thousand reinforcement beams for nice price and delivered right to my door.
  4. yeah i got pretty lucky i guess, found some within 15 minutes of looking.
  5. Benefits? How does anyone in 11 pages of this thread still think there are benefits to fatigue. It doesn't stop macroers and it does screw with legit players.
  6. I'm just trying to get over reading a post that seems to be trying to justify microtransactions. I was kinda hoping as gamers we could all agree together that those are horrible o.o
  7. Paying for a bonus to your progress is not the same as having your game play walled off until you pay more.
  8. Hey players, pay for the right to continue playing our game that you already pay us for
  9. As in title the /Almanac command does not produce any results unless the almanac item itself is in your inventory and not in a container or inventory group. in container and in inventory group i get - [05:58:36] No reports found! In inventory - [05:59:34] Currently Harvestable (from your almanac):
  10. As in title, just used 64kg of mortar to prepare one tile :*(
  11. Been a while since i gave a proper update. I've been stockpiling dirt while digging out the east coast <> lake serpentine canal so not much to show on the deed atm until i go nuts using all that up Starts at East coast here next to Black Brigade. View from east entrance bridge. View at the BB/MR perimeter bridge From the main entrance of Magranon's Rest The long run up to Centrum Universi (i'm gonna be digging them a moat the whole way around while i collect dirt :P) Centrum corner section And connecting onto Nomad's docks, through which there is entry to Lake Serpentine Now i got a loooooooooooooooooot of dirt to start using and don't get me started on deciding what to do with the mine walls.....i'll probably clad it all in marble...
  12. 8 bridges. EIGHT BRIDGES over my canal that i -just- finished and now i'm gonna want to redo them all.....goddamnit.
  13. Presumably a bug that came about from today's update to cave tile borders/paving. I am mayor of my deed and when trying to mine/remove a reinforcement from the cave floor i get this [16:35:05] You can not mine next to reinforced floors.
  14. ok last update to this Will be finishing paving this out tomorrow, so you got 8 bridges over the canal, some new paths around the desert, two towers at my deed marked by red triangles and might as well add mailbox symbol too as there's a publically available one at the bottom entrance to Magranon's Rest and also by my token
  15. Soon once this is paved out i'll be spending the next <insert dumb length of time here> on adding all the dirt from the canal to the deed
  16. You never could reinforce the entrance tiles floor.
  17. Obviously summoning me has done it's job. Good job me.
  18. Would be such a godsend....My underground city has suffered many setbacks due to slope difficulties and...*ahem* inebriated workers @armyskin
  19. I've been stockpiling dirt for a few weeks and digging out my canal Just finished dredging it and paving now, will take some pics of that when it's paved and then start using the like...50,000 dirt i've accrued on the deed
  20. Fair point there's 8 bridges over this thing atm xD When i've paved the canal itself i'll rejigger the roadways and update that here.
  21. Just an update to the above. It's now dredged all the way to Lake Serpentine completely deep enough for any boat. Screenshots to come when paving is done
  22. Once again, for the nth time in this thread...Finnn declares anything that conflicts with his opinion as nonsense. I'll pass on trying to debate with a person like that and leave the truth to speak for itself.
  23. It's literally in the code, it's demonstrably true and easy to confirm by any staff member with access or player who can understand Java and has the WU Server.Jar There's nothing random about it, being upset that it proves you wrong doesn't make it random, nonsense or anything but what it is.
  24. Did you....actually even read what he said. Is this a troll? It's a good troll.
