    New servers is the solution to everything according to the devs. Just a few more years and every player will have a server to play on alone.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Hard to conduct timely and efficient tests when we have no cornucopia. Stop asking us to test stuff for yall if your not willing to give us the proper tools to test with. You might as well just implement it right away on the live server and let us test there. At least we have the skills, tools, and resources to do so.

    -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.

    I recently planned and finished building a lodge for hunters on the Grand Steppe. The area I used is small, so it doesn't take up too much steppe space, and it isn't too deep into the steppe to find. I'm not entirely certain how often people visit the Grand Steppe to hunt, but the lodge is intended for the use of the public. I haven't fully furnished the lodge yet, however when I do it will have an oven, a forge, some storage, and several beds. In the front of the lodge is a small 2x5 fenced area, which will have enchanted grass so that you may loose your horses or whatever animals you use on hunting trips. I would, however, suggest branding your horses to your deed/alliance just to be certain no one can take them. The beds in the lodge will be set at a very low fee of 10i, or no fee at all for members of my personal deed and alliance. There will also be a merchant placed in the lodge. The merchant will be stocked with various weapons/bows for use in hunting. So if you are out hunting on the Grand Steppe and are far from home, or just don't feel like returning home quite yet, you can come to the lodge. Feel free to cook your meats, improve your weapons or buy new weapons, and log off in a bed to build up sleep bonus. The Grand Steppe Hunting Lodge is located here in the map below with it's own deed, Haven. Happy hunting!

    Belisaere Affliction - BL Epic Our story begins with an idea, the most dangerous weapon of all. An idea to unify the tribes of Mongolia Affliction and achieve co-operation within Black Light, under the guidance of Libilia. With the worlds changing and the old clique's powers being challenged in Jenn-Kellon and Mol-Rehan, we want Libilia's followers to be known for their superiority and loyalty. Our group is looking for mature veterans and new players alike to instill values that Wurm has long lost since Wild days, where an oath meant something more than it does today. With that said we value loyalty above all, as it is the core and foundation of a successful village and eventually a home server alliance being born. It's noteworthy we have a lot of freedom players, whom have moved to Epic cluster, so if you're in that category, we cater to you. We are however looking for many more members, we already have a large group with team speak and we're waiting on more to join. Criteria of what we're looking for... Maturity. Co-operative attitude. Willing to assist and help. Leaders and people capable of working in unity. Carebears and PVPers alike. Be able to listen on Team Speak or preferbly talk and communicate with the group. Lastly, Loyalty and those willing to be true to their word. If you are interested, please contact Primarily and firstly in game on Affliction Server: Penor and/or Deruniel and/or Zelator Below are not currently active but still available founding members Typhon (Forum Acc Hubert) Tahj (Forum Acc JockII) VonDoom (Forum Acc: Doombiscuits) Further amendments and improvements will occur to raise the quality of this recruitment post.

    In a game with so little customization-possibilities (even less on the pve-servers then on the pvp-servers, with all the prescribed one-kingdom-look items) it really hurts to lose any customization-possibility left - and the wood-textures are quite an important one of those left... (even if they have been slowly disappearing for a while allready - which I didn't like one bit). I am so getting the feeling of living in a cooky-cutter world, every day a bit more... please first make customization-options (in whichever way), and only then change things to cookie-cutter as base-model, if it must be. Not the other way around, like happens all too often in wurm - take things out with 'oh it will be even better in the future' - never to be seen emerging, or maybe after years of waiting. Please, keep the right followorder, don't change things before the change is complete!

    Thank the Wurm gods that Notch decided to leave Wurm Online back in 2007 and sever his ties from it. To even consider that Wurm would have evolved into something similar to Minecraft had he remained here makes me shudder and shake my head at the dancing crude blocky graphics that the 100's of thousands of people spend their time fiddling around with. Now 10 years later Wurm has gotten along very fine without him and Rolf has been the one that has enabled it to survive and gradually progress throughout these passing years. As I see it there is no comparison between the childlike graphics of Minecraft and the evolved beautifully detailed graphics of Wurm. That the financial success of Minecraft has been built on these crude graphic images, just reflects the visual acceptance of those masses who embrace it for its lego quick building diversions. Financial success is one thing but creating and sustaining an online game of beauty, an evolving environment and functioning skills that contribute to what can be created within it is a totally different matter. In this way Wurm surpasses Minecraft in every way imaginable. It seems that even Notch had realized this and moved on to other ventures before this deal was even struck. There he leaves his Frankenstein creation for others to now bend to their own will in the pursuit of conglomerate riches. With all its charming flaws Wurm continues to move onward with a somewhat more encouraging and assured step into the future. Who knows what paths will continue to unfold here but don't forget the one god of Wurm (Rolf) that has sustained it throughout this time after the other had departed. Perhaps it would seem that I am a cheerleader for our fond game but the comparison to that other just leaves me shaking my head in a flabbergasted juxtaposition of a lack of visual discernment and integrated function. Good for Notch if he gets his cut out of the sale of this game that he perhaps created with children in mind. Now doubt the money will enable him to find more enjoyable pursuits in his future years ahead. Hopefully this time he will create something that remotely resembles Wurm in the beauty and function of its worlds; but as long as Wurm survives and continues to expand in its creative potential offered to its participants, that will be no concern of mine. Happy Trails =Ayes=

    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.
