  1. Since 1.3 Mailing liquids has been charged at 1c no matter the volume, while this has been going on since then, it’s come to the attention of the dev team and it’s been discussed, with the decision to change how combined goods in general work. With the upcoming patch this will be fixed to reflect 1c per 1 unit of volume (e.g. 1c mailing cost for every 1kg of water/milk/alcohol). We’re providing warning for this as we know many have enjoyed the discounted mailing, and to allow you all to make sure that when the patch comes in everyone is well prepared and informed. Update: After ongoing discussion and community feedback, we'll be addressing a few things, firstly, liquids will now be charged 1c per 5 kgs, regardless of unit size, a small barrel of any liquid will now cost 10c (1c container 45 / 5 = 9c) Secondly, this will now apply to all items that can be combined and mailed, hopefully improving trade of smaller combined items without damaging bulk trade. We appreciate all feedback, but I do stress that these threads are the very point of warnings like this is to provide information and avoid the changes just being pushed on as was done in the past, so keep it constructive and avoid bashing the devs!
  2. The bunny has been dead tired, after the poor Easter bunny massacre of 2016, he’s had to run around the starter deeds single pawedly and hasn’t had the time to hide all the eggs in the grass! To help him out, we’ve got a code for you all to redeem while he takes a well earned rest in the shade. To redeem the key, simply type /redeemkey 9VMY486QSC8D-QH84F6O8UMSN in the chat window Happy Easter! The Wurm Online team. TL;DR, we totally didn’t break something this year.
  3. Oleander can now be used as a herb in cooking Siege Weapons Bugs and Fixes Post-Live Fixed up the message for what buildings you hit. Added fail message on cata/treb. Lowered the damage variance for battering rams, a fail will now deal 1/5th damage instead of none. Capped damage given to projectiles when they land – should now be the same as whats dealt to whatever you hit. Fixed cata/treb projectiles not hitting fences sometimes. Lowered difficulty for using the battering ram – fences are also now lower difficulty than walls. Planned floors/walls should now be properly ignored by cata/treb. Rewrote how the checks worked for roofs and floors A projectile that clearly passes through a roof now should hit it and land there. The box it uses for this isn’t exact to the model, so if the projectile is going over the roof, try lowering your angle or power slightly landing closer to the bottom of the roof than the top of it will be more accurate. Lowered damage of archery towers and turrets Turrets should now be able to fire from the top of a house or bridge Archery towers now have a damage falloff, the further they fire, the less damage will be dealt Gates and doors that both players can move through will no longer block attacks Bugfix: Corrected text when prospecting sandstone veins Bugfix: Sandstone slab floors can now be built
  4. Changes and additions Dye requirement for large and small crates has been reduced to 2.50kg and 1.50kg respectively. Merchants who move on due to poor business (self-dismiss) will now return their goods and coins inside a backpack through the mail system instead of returning each item individually. Cultivate option is now present on grass, steppe and mycelium tiles. You will now be able to forage and botanize on mycelium tiles. Planter racks will no longer fit in large storage units. Plants inside planter racks currently in large storage units will no longer grow. God conversion changes: HotS template kingdoms (default and PMK) can follow Libila or any player god. All others can follow anyone except Libila. As per the option for PMK libila priests in 1.3, Libila priests will be able to use the /transfer option to change to a player god deity without a faith loss until the 10th of April Epic terraforming events have been removed from the endgame of Valrei scenarios. Bug Fixes Bugfix: More text issues addressed. Bugfix: Changed a number of recipes that were using HFC instead of baking.
  5. Changes and additions: New method for getting rid of unwanted hedges: Hedges can now be cut down similar to trees and bushes with a cut down action or the CUT_DOWN keybind. Destroying hedges on deed is tied to the “destroy fences” permission. Dredging additions and changes: You can now flatten and level with a dredge. You must not be embarked when using flatten or level. When dredging from a boat, the dirt/sand/clay will go directly into the hold if there is room. (You must have room in the dredge for this to happen). The spawning of Valrei mobs has changed so that they spawn spread out across the server instead of in groups of 10. Keybind MILK added. Underground housing will now be enabled on PvP servers. Happy Easter! Hot cross buns have been added as a recipe, you’ll have to find out how to make it yourself though! New housing additions SANDSTONE INTRODUCED: Will act like marble or slate vein. Will spawn randomly out of rock tiles across the server. Can be created with a transmutation rod. NEW ITEMS: Sandstone bricks (Sandstone shard + chisel). Sandstone slabs (Sandstone shard + chisel). Slate bricks (Slate shard + chisel). Slate slabs (Slate shard + chisel). Round stones (Rock shard + chisel). CHANGED ITEMS: Slate slabs now are created with 88kgs of slate shards and a chisel. Pottery bricks now require 5kgs of clay instead of 15. Pottery brick floors will have new textures. Stone slab house floors will have new texture. House stone slabs will be changing to sandstone slab flooring to retain the same texture (if this is not immediate it will be addressed). Round cobble roads are now paved with round stones. Rough cobble roads are now paved with colossus bricks. NEW WALL TYPES: Left arch. T arch. Right arch. NEW WALL TEXTURES: Rendered wall – Plain stone wall + 20kgs of clay Sandstone wall – 20 sandstone bricks and 20 mortar. Pottery brick wall – 20 pottery bricks and 20 mortar. Slate wall – 20 slate bricks and 20 mortar. Rounded stone wall – 20 round stones and 20 mortar. marble wall – 20 marble bricks and 20 mortar. NEW PAVEMENT TYPES: Sandstone slab pavement. Sandstone brick pavement. Slate slab pavement. Slate brick pavement (existing slate slab pavement will become slate brick pavement). Marble brick pavement. Pottery brick pavement. NEW FENCE TYPES: Pottery brick fence. Pottery brick iron fence. Pottery brick iron fence gate. Sandstone fence. Sandstone iron fence. Sandstone iron fence gate. Marble fence. Marble iron fence. Marble iron fence gate. Rendered fence. Rendered iron fence. Rendered iron fence gate. Slate fence. Slate iron fence. Slate iron fence gate. Round stone fence. Round stone iron fence. Round stone iron fence gate. Siege weapon changes: CATAPULTS AND TREBUCHETS: New algorithm now used for Catapults/Trebuchet projectiles that properly takes into account starting power, gravity and firing angle of the siege weapon: Starting power determined by number of winches for catapult, and loaded amount for trebuchet – power directly relates to starting velocity (so 20 winches is 20m/s). Arc of the projectile is checked along it for any walls, floors, bridges or fences it hits, otherwise it will travel the full arc until it hits the ground. Anything within a small radius of the landing position will take damage, radius depends on the size of the thrown projectile. Weight, quality, and final velocity of the projectile all add into how much damage it deals to the things it lands on – metal and stone projectiles do the most damage. Projectiles still have a maximum of 20 damage per shot. Added new actions to catapults and trebuchets to allow changing of the firing angle. Firing angle defaults to 45 degrees, can be changed to be between 5 and 85 degrees. Added messages when winching and changing the firing angle of a catapult or trebuchet that will give an approximate firing distance of the projectile. Action time for winching now takes skill into account, will be 33% faster at 100 skill. Projectile landing messages now give a full breakdown of everything they hit, and how many of each thing – as well as naming which structure(s) received damage. BATTERING RAMS ADDED: Minimum 21 body strength to use it. Uses the War Machines skill for skill checks – action time is 33% faster at 100 skill with a base timer of 30 seconds. Checks a short area in front of the ram for anything to hit, first thing it hits will take damage. Area should be closely lined up with the model. Can only be used by one person at any time, user must be quite close to be able to use it. Damage dealt increased by the ram quality and the skill check result. Ram does double damage to walls underground. Citizen or ally with destroy wall permissions will deal bonus damage. Cannot be used on steep slopes. ARCHERY TOWER AND MAGIC TURRET CHANGES: Turrets and archery towers now have increased range based on their quality – up to 5x their base range at 100ql. Turrets and archery towers will now shoot faster based on quality – up to 33% faster at 100ql. Turrets that fail to fire anything when they have a chance to will now do a firing animation without sending out a projectile. Changed the projectile starting positions of turrets and archery towers to line up with their models – This should allow them to fire from anywhere they have proper line of sight to a target. Added a 3x bonus to damage when bashing arched walls manually. Bug Fixes Bug fix: Fix for negative quality rift resources as participation reward. Bug fix: Fix to prevent most unique creatures from spawning inside a deed. New dragon types use a different spawn mechanic and may still spawn in a village. Bug fix: Christmas trees and snowmen were removed from the mission items lists. Bug fix: Fix for offline tamed/charmed pets sometimes not logging back online with their owner. Bug fix: Addressed a few spelling and text errors. Bug fix: Hot stills can now be picked up from the ground if empty. Bug fix: You can now properly use the /join village command even if the village which recruited you has more than one word in its name. Bug fix: Some recipe fixes: Eggnog can no longer use itself to make more eggnog. Sausage skins can no longer be nested inside each other. Bug fix: Improved checks to allow pushing items from a house floor onto a bridge and from a bridge onto a house floor. Bug fix: Improved bridge checks, if a bridge is destroyed or decays, planted items on that bridge should no longer give the error message ‘You need to be on the same bridge’ when interacting with them. Bug fix: Addressed infrequent issue in which roof and floor damage exceeded 100. Bug fix: Fixed dual faith issues between Chaos and Freedom PvE servers. Leaving Libila on Chaos and joining no other deity will now properly set you to no deity when crossing back to Freedom servers. Bug fix: Deity colossi can now be destroyed by owner and/or mayor on a deed.
  6. We’re pleased to confirm that PayPal transactions are back up and running, all purchases should be processed within the next hour and will return to their usual speed from now on. We appreciate your patience during this time. -The Wurm team

  8. Changed examine message on small egg to indicate fertility. Dye amounts for bulk storage bins and food storage bins has been reduced to 3kgs needed. Change: Removed merchant contracts from mission items list. Mailing costs for liquids and combined resources is now calculated at 1 copper/5kg weight. Bloodthirst Changes: Fix: Bloodthirst now properly gives 30 on a killshot. Change Changed how the power is gained on the BT weapon. Can cast on it to increase it up to 1000, increasing it to 1000 will be along the same difficulty of a normal cast to 100. Each cast with a power higher than the current power/10 will add that power to the cast. This will naturally cap it at around 1000, maybe a really lucky 1100ish before casting to increase is impossible. Power increase is now also gained when killing creatures as well as other players. Killing creatures will now increase the power equal to the creature’s CR. Between 5000 and 7500 power this will scale down to half the creature’s CR. Stun times and frequency from creature combat moves has been reduced. Bugfixes Bugfix: Removed Gift Pack from mission item list. Bugfix: Fixed an issue where rift resources were not rewarded properly based on participation over 60. Bugfix: Description for Red Dragon Madness achievement fixed. Bugfix: Felled trees should now decay on deed. Bugfix: Fix for client crash when managing citizens when a role name was blank. Bugfix: Fixed a bug which changed the state of cakes as candles were added – This does mean cakes can no longer be wrapped however. Bugfix: A few mailing issues regarding paper products were fixed. (details below) Returned paper/papyrus items cost changed from 1 copper to 1 iron. Second mailing screen text changed to reflect that paper/papyrus return costs are 1 iron. Inscribed paper/papyrus now shows as inscribed while in the mail (and not as just paper or papyrus. Bugfix: Fix for cookbook display of nameable recipes for those who already have one named for them and make another recipe which has not been named yet. Bugfix: Fix for artifacts not dropping properly in some situations upon logging out. Bugfix: Possible fix for time stopping issue in game. (Hotfixed March 5) Bugfix: “You cannot dig in such terrain” error should now check the correct tile. (Hotfixed March 5) Bugfix: Restored examine message that went missing from floorboards. Bugfix: Change the order of focus loss in combat logs so that it appears after damage text to prevent confusion. Bugfix: Citizens no longer blocked from freezing lava on deed if not part of an alliance. Bugfix: When improving roofs, floors and walls, material is removed from inventory at the end of the action instead of at the 5 second point. Bugfix: Fixed an issue with checks for digging skill and slopes in some situations. Bugfix: 100 Plate armour smithing title should now work correctly on Epic.
  9. Hi Everyone, On the 11th of March at at 1300 UTC (1400 server time) we will be taking down Deliverance for extended maintenance to address some hardware issues. The downtime will last 2-3 hours and will only affect Deliverance. We appreciate your patience during this downtime. -The Wurm team.
  10. Reworked felled trees; Removed leaves and centered them on the tile so they easier to interact with and play nice with terrain (automatic switch from falling to felled only works on unstable client at the moment, can be picked up and dropped on stable client) Added particles to falling trees Flatten and Level in mines now uses mining animation instead of digging, leveling outside uses digging Added animation when interacting with cave ceiling
  11. Changes: Changed Rift rewards to be more in line with final ranking. Light of Fo will give a max of 15 participation points per cast, as long as it hits that many creatures to heal them. At the end of a Rift, if you have more than 60 participation (phenomenal), the lump you receive will be less random ql and weight, and more dependent on your participation score (with a slight amount of random on top of it). Also at the end of a rift, if you have more than 60 points, you’ll get an amount of rift resources scaling to your participation points (up to a max of 20 at a participation score of 360). Each of these items will be random between the three rift materials, and the ql will scale based on participation too. Higher participation generally will mean more rift material bits at a higher ql (though there is a slight random added to the final ql of each bit). Changed the resulting location of lamps planted using the corner tile. Lamps previously planted using the tile corners if on tile corners that bordered deed and perimeter may have actually been ‘located’ on the perimeter tile rather than the deed tile for lighting and decay. If you have lamps planted in this manner, pick up your lamp, stand on the DEED tile and replant in the corner to assure that the lamp is located on deed and not in the perimeter. Lamps in the past could not be planted on certain tile borders if there was a house or fence on that border as well. You can now plant and interact with lamps on tile corners even if there is a house or fence intersecting that tile corner. Blessed lamps will auto-light off deed when planted on pavement tiles. When planting, please be certain you are standing on the pavement tile if planting using the tile corner method. Feature: New behavior for off deed blessed lamps. Blessed lamps planted off deed on pavement tiles will auto-light in the evening and consume no fuel as long as they are fueled and lit initially. Blessed lamps planted off deed on bridges will auto-light in the evening and consume no fuel as long as they are fueled and lit initially. Blessed lamps planted off deed on reinforced cave floor tiles will remain lit all the time and consume no fuel as long as they are fueled and lit initially. Boat speeds have been tweaked upwards as a percentage of their base speed in low wind according to their relative difficulty to create: Corbita: +26% Cog: +75% Knarr: +2.5% Caravel: +33% Wind bonus has remain unchanged, and speed differences will be most noticeable in little wind. Bug Fixes: Bugfix: The changes in 1.3 to multiple harvests depending on skill and age for Forestry and Milking were affected by a bug that increased skillgain per harvest exponentially per tick during one action, this has been rectified and the skillgain per tick will be the same across the whole action. This fix also affects Botanizing as that is where the original bug was. Bugfix: Sealed barrels properly reflect the weight of the contents while in inventory. Bugfix: Fixed a few issues with sealed barrels and contents behavior. Bugfix: Fixed an issue where you would not get the nature-meditate option on the context menu if you had something activated in inventory and there was a glow rune on your rug. Bugfix: Fixed an issue which prevented loading of items with glow runes attached. Bugfix: Internal components of items can no longer be loaded into war machines. Bugfix: Fix for not receiving normal stance fight skill. Bugfix: Recipe fixes for mayo not mixing with other items or leading to unknown recipes in lore. Bugfix: Various spelling and text errors fixed. Bugfix: Added a few layer and obstruction checks for interaction while above and below ground. Bugfix: Fixed an issue which prevented clay shingles from being dragged into a kiln from a bulk container. Bugfix: When planting a flower in a pottery flowerpot or a marble planter, the planted pot will have the same quality/damage as the empty planter. Bugfix: Another fix to prevent fog spiders from spawning on deeds. Bugfix: Fixed a few issues to properly block building or continuing structures inside blocked zones. Bugfix: Rebalanced damage done to tools when destroying unfinished fences and building walls as well as completed fences and walls. Bugfix: Fixed a few cooking achievements that were not working properly and added a few new ones to be discovered. Bugfix: Fixed various text descriptions for recipes and ingredients.
  12. Bugfix: Gold and silver horseshoes now use Jewelry smithing for improving. Bugfix: Storage unit shelves will now be the same wood type as the external container (last wood type used in creation). Bugfix: Remove internal components of items from missions. Bugfix: Add to crafting window option was removed from completed cupboards and storage units. Bugfix: Fixed an issue where built-in internal components of a storage container did not reflect the rarity of the external container if the container turned rare upon improving. Bugfix: Planted banners and flags limit per tile increased to 4. Bugfix: Fix for items taking a massive decay tick when removed from a decay reduced container after a period of time. Bugfix: Gold rune of Fo will now correctly have a 10% chance of an extra item per harvest for Forestry and Milking actions as opposed to the 10% bonus to skill. Bugfix: Fixed attaching runes to boats. Manage permission is required. Bugfis: Corrected an issue where some skills were not using the correct Skill knowledge value for checks when non-prem, allowing them to perform skill limited actions over the 20 skill cap. If non premium all actions requiring higher skill should not be possible. Bugfix: Fixed the Area of Effect for a random prayer heal to the 3 x 3 area intended. Bugfix: Planted herbs and spices will only grow while planted on the ground or in planter racks.
  13. We are currently experiencing difficulties communicating transactions from PayPal. Unfortunately this means that during this time all transactions through PayPal will be delayed. Once the system is restored all transactions will be processed, so if you have purchased Premium time or silver you will receive it then. We are in contact with PayPal to resolve the issue but have no ETA on when the systems will be operating correctly. Apologies for the inconvenience.
  14. Wide tunnel entrances Tunnels can be up to 3 tiles wide. To widen a tunnel, the tile you mine must only be connected to ONE open tunnel only. Mine doors cannot be placed on tunnel entrances that are 2 or more tiles wide. Alchemist Cupboard Created with Fine carpentry. Contains 10 2kg liquid containers. Slows decay on contents. Storage unit Created using Carpentry. Has 3 racks which can hold large items like fishing rods, and saddles. Does not slow decay. Unicorn Improvements Gold and silver horse shoes can now be created with Jewellery smithing Unicorns can now be equipped with saddles, bridles and gold/silver horse shoes Body strength of unicorns has been boosted to 30 (horses are 20 and hell horses are 35) This means that unicorns have a smaller speed penalty when being ridden than horses, and they may also be hitched, but unhitch when no longer tame Bug Fixes Bugfix: Fix to disable teleporting if artifacts are equipped. Bugfix: Various grammar and spelling fixes. Bugfix: An issue with picking up items on deeds and within buildings with the proper settings has been fixed.
