      We are experiencing some DNS connectivity issues with the login server, unfortunately this is out of our control. We will let you all know when these issues resolve.

Set permissions to a specific TILE (inside of deeded area)

8 posts in this topic

As I continue work with the Ultima Nostalgia project (in which the entire server is one huge deed), I'm getting more and more requests on YouTube and elsewhere from people who would like to live in their own house on the server. I suspect that a lot of these people are Ultima players who have never tried Wurm before but who would be willing to buy Wurm Unlimited to live in a place that looks like UO and is populated by other Ultima fans. Obviously, since they've never played Wurm they don't really understand how deeds work. So I've tried to explain the problems of letting them live there. 

 

This got me to thinking about permissions. We can set permissions to houses, carts, boats, fences, mounts etc. But what if we could right click and set permissions to TILES that are within one's deed? This way, deed owners could:

 

  • Create various empty plots - allowing "anything goes" so players could build a house from ground up, farm etc and anything they wished - so sort of like a mini deed inside a deed.
  • Create a public mine that allows players to mine and pick up ore, but doesn't allow them to load a forge onto a cart
  • Create wood chopping forests, keeping the forests and trees of the rest of the deed safe. 
  • Create public farming land
  • And I'm sure there are many uses that I'm not even realizing at this point
  • It would be up to the deed owner to mark these areas somehow with fences or signs

 

Right click tile...

Set permissions from a popup

  • Coordinates of tile can be seen in the title to ease remote management
  • Tile could be named to better keep track of which set of tiles (Plot 1, Plot 2, Public forest, Public mine etc) they belong to

PS: Before posting this, I checked to see if there were any other similar posts, and I'd just like to point out that Enigma_Prime is suggesting something similar. Please go and check out Enigma's post as well. I decided to make a separate thread about this since what I'm asking for is slightly different, has different mechanics etc

+1 Ive thought about this before, and how convenient it would be to be able to make like "zones" in your deed that have their own set of permissions.

DEEDCEPTION!

Deeds within deeds within deeds....

 

 

Maybe tho... use shop-sign(the kind with masonry icon)+merchant npc.. to show that there's some npc with a deal/offer.. selling land there, unless it's UO themed to see a sign, which remains there until the land is bought.. etc etc etc..

Might consider posting this in the Requests sub-forum of the WU forum?

 

Would have benefits in WO as well, of course.  Just wonder if WU modding would be a quicker option.

 

Cool project btw!
