    House and deed planner for Wurm Online and Wurm Unlimited DeedPlanner (previously known as HouseCalc) is very customizable, 3d deed/house planner for Wurm which allows you to plan and see your dream house/village before creating it in game. Development is still active and program is open sourced, so reported bugs will be fixed, new features can (and in most cases will) be added on demand. Everyone with Java/OpenGL experience who want to help and add their own contribution to the biggest Wurm map planner can join the project. Download DeedPlanner downloads page Compatible systems: Windows, Linux, Mac OS (not officially supported) Tested on: Windows 7, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu 17.04, Mac OS Sierra Latest release: 18.08.2017 If you like this program, please donate! Facebook page New Github repository Old Github repository Program features plan your own house/deed and see it in 3d, just like in game! ability to edit ground tiles, floors, walls, roofs, objects, bridges and heightmap undo/redo feature mark your villages with text labels cave view, together with cave dwellings calculation of materials needed to build anything on the map or carpentry and materials required to build single building fully configurable FPP and 2d view camera in-game perspective simulation mode load and save maps with copy-paste, files or pastebin.com possibility to import old DP and WAK maps large database with most of the Wurm objects and textures added Problems, errors, bugs If program don't even start, please make sure that you have the lastest Java (JRE 8) and program is unzipped. Java 8 is included with Wurm Unlimited installation and is required to run Wurm Online as well. In case of any problems please post error log (in main program directory) and describe the problem. I am trying to fix all bugs as soon as possible. In case of maps loading bugs, please attach save pastebin. In case of program loading bugs, please post both error and info logs (if not empty). Error and info logs are overwritten each time you run program, so please copy logs just after bug is spotted.

    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. New slate gatehouse out of the south end of the main cavern and the new marble bricked outer wall in Stable and Unstable clients respectively April 22nd Gatehouse rebuild in marble. April 24th Deedplanner shot April 25th Mine Update Guest Houses are up, getting started on my underground city May 20th Canal Update 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... May 28th completed roads/canal update Alrighty the time has come for me to get back to the dirt raising, so here's a couple pics of the new view from the wall platform with shiny new slate roads. With the East coast <-> Lake Serpentine canal done i'll be collecting dirt by building a moat for my neighbours at Centrum Universi so once i finish using this lot of dirt up i'll be completing a ring road around CU replacing the old cobble one too New road/bridge layout with my towers and mailbox icons added in too. I think thats enough messing around with off deed stuff for a while! May 30th Dirt all used up! So i took all the dirt from the canal and the road works. Which was something like 160 crates of dirt. This is a picture from the east side of the wall after i finished raising all the outer sections by levelling Then after i dropped ALL that dirt into it, this is how that looks from the opposite corner I think i need a little more dirt... Looks nice from outside at least June 14th - little paving update to the tunnels I have returned and the digging continues, doubt i'll have much to post here in terms of screenshots for a while, all i'm doing is digging a wagon at a time and dumping it over the edge to fill in the 2nd platform. I did play around with new cave paving though Tunnel looks like this now. June 20th - Paving and cladding the cavern I was really pleased with how my playing around with paving the mine went so i took some time out of digging the entire desert up today to start work on more paving and cladding. Looks pretty damn awesome if i do say so myself. Only problem now is how much more that bit of broken ceiling i can't fix bothers me! June 22nd - Did a little video of the cave and tunnel ramp. Jberg delivered a beautiful shot as seen from GM flight July 4th - third and final platform wall being raised I got a little bored of dumping dirt and watching it trickle into the pit so i decided to just raise the third platform outer wall and dump dirt from the top. Looks pretty nuts so far, if you zoom in the tiny little speck a mile up next to the wagon is me xD Gives you an idea what the final completed height will look like from the outside at least. July 14th - Cave Warehouse Update Welp i'm gonna be offline for another couple weeks, moving house big stuffs! So here's what i worked on this week at least....sadface that the unstable client lighting got changed and now it's all dark again Finally started giving myself a warehouse / place to live that isn't the token house. Was hard to get a nice pic of the ground floor warehouse because for the some reason the items have about a 5 tile draw distance so you can't see the signs, crates and bsb's. So i just took a pic of the billion rock shards xD August 6th - My return from 3 weeks away moving house. I'm back everyone! While I've been moving house my Fire and Sand alliance pals have been setting up something special for later events at my deed check it out! The Armoury The building that the first picture is taken from - Public Barracks August 26th quicky screeny (only been working on little bits n bobs + collecting more dirt lately so not a lot to show off) Getting real busy in the mine nowadays! I'm gonna have to finish levelling floors just to make room for more buildings soon September 9th making progress on the dirt platform again So close... Of course once this outer ring is done i have....well...this to fill in. September 22nd - Impalong preparation pictures The Armoury - Crafting Hall Ground Floor Smithy 2nd Floor Seating, crafting and auction hall. Roof Sermon Area Public Barracks - Aka the hotel First Four Floors all look like this. With some deluxe suites higher up On a final note the platform outer dirtwall has been 100% completed meaning i no longer have to level! I can just dump dirt over the edge into the gaping chasm September 28th - Continued Impalong prep I adopted a town mascot, this is Alan. Preparation for the impalong continues Now i have an arena. November 18th - The main cavern is complete! The great exodus dirt dump continues day by day, i slowly slowly fill the lolpit. Meanwhile this was achieved! The main cavern is officially completely levelled! Mine work will now be focused on making a boat cave down bottom and a nice elevator on this east side of the cave. Helpy helpers who have helped @Arium - Initial cave mining and ceiling raising. Claimed and collected Finndar's dirt donation. @Cyborg - Mining @Mappy - Mining, dirt donations and helped put up the guard towers @JakeRivers - Not honestly certain if he knows how many supplies i "borrowed" from ToC @Mypoppy - Dirt Donation @SomebodyX - Does stuff on occasion, honestly not sure why i don't KoS him for being my only citizen who's never here. @Zivirt - I steal his account to do skills i'm too lazy to grind myself. @Szai - Dirt Donation @Wulfgarr(Thunderstruck) - Dirt Donation @Tiranille - Dirt Donation @Angelklaine - Actually came over and joined the village for the opportunity to help with my mine! @kilgharrah and @Kialexia - Dirt digging and huge donation of dirt out of their own pocket! @koroth - Came by on a Nahjo priest Sirona and casted dirt while he stayed @armyskin - "did like 3 hours of levelling total" - his words. Has since spent many hours levelling cave floors. @Fhylli - Levelled outer dirtwall of platform 2 with me. @Finndar - Donated a large sum of dirt. @VirusMD - Parked his nahjo alt at the deed and casted thousands of dirts for me. The following players assisted in huge building and decoration efforts to prepare for impalong events. @Alagrexa Tiranille@Grumpled@PingvinenGlory@BaddbobSomebodyx @Robus@Rocklobstar @Roysta@Theodein(Snoo)@SugarFoxx@TulemeesArium @Melloyello Whiterose If i missed someone do yell at me.

    Nowe Wszczniesz by Warlander Top of the morning to ye Wurmians! It's another Valrei International, keeping you up to date with everything going on in your world, so let's get to it! In light of some discussions this week, I'd like to go over a few things we're working on, while the PvP roadmap coming later will have a bit more info on some things. PvP updates There's a lot in the works with PvP related overhauls, including the Valrei system as well as priests and spells. These projects are currently under the way as we speak, but these are not simple tasks. Many factors include identifying how the system is supposed to work, what does and doesn't work with the current system, what we want the system to be and how we want it to work and how prospective changes would fit in with the rest of the game. Once we have a firm plan ironed out, we'll then begin involving you all in feedback and testing, seeing what needs to be tweaked and adjusted, as well as looking at the overall feel of it and how it meshes in. We completely understand that this is frustrating when you're waiting for it, but it does take time, we'll be seeing a few minor things going out to tone down the effects of valrei (Such as removing terraforming events next update) as well as reducing stun timers from nogumps and other creatures (last update). There's a lot to go through and we'll continue to work on it, as well as work to make sure that you all are kept up to date with what's going on. We're committed to improving PvP, and we'll be providing a bit more PvP oriented road map soon, with Budda breaking out his thesaurus to work on his first devblog! I don't know when that will land, but stay tuned! Conversions So many of you might have seen the thread about HotS conversions to player gods where we agreed that it was a less than ideal system. The task we face now is rewriting the outdated conversion system with one that performs better, and makes a bit more sense. This system will allow HotS players to follow player gods, I'm not sure whether it will be BL only player gods or include WL ones, and more info will be given prior to release, but I wanted to share with you all that the current system will be changed fairly soon, being on test within the next two weeks or so. Unstable is a bit more stable! Good news everyone! We've managed to identify and resolve the disconnect issue with the unstable client! This opens the door for us to address the other issues that arise with the new client, and begin the final bug fixing prior to it becoming the stable client. So please do test it out and play on it and provide all feedback on performance and crashing issues you encounter. If you don't test it now when it's unstable you might encounter an issue when it goes live, and that means trouble! One important thing to remember is there are several new settings in the new client, including shadow map size, and dynamic lighting. Both of these improve the look and feel of the game greatly, but do also impact performance if you run on the lower end, so I'd advise starting with a new configuration, and tweaking it as it goes. Grab the unstable client and give it a go here: http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_unstable.jnlp Xanadu Improvements We've isolated a few issues causing Xanadu's lag, and some may have noticed that things occur a little faster on Xanadu than they used to (coal piles burning!) We've got some other things in the works to address them, and hopefully they improve performance as well! Community Content And Milosanx returns with a new video from wu! It's always great to see videos from him, and it's a good overview of the new Otherlands server, which opened with the release of 1.3, so check it out! Vortac and Weem have also been hard at work with their Follywood series, which I have enjoyed greatly (and pestered several people with links to) So make sure you check those out as well! That's it from me this week, so have a good weekend everyone, and as always, keep on Wurming! Retrograde & the Wurm team.

    Have you ever wanted to freeze to death, or contract waterborne diseases? Now you can! Things that keep you warm: Summer, daytime, fires (fireplace/campfire/forge/etc.), being indoors, wearing warm clothing, eating hot food and drinking tea Things that make you cold: Winter, night, strong winds, rain, swimming, high altitudes and standing on snow tiles Drinking sea water or lake water may give you disease status. This can be avoided by boiling the water. Water from wells and fountains is safe and does not require boiling. Other safe options are wine, milk, fruit juices, etc. Each crop has a growing season. These seasons are longer closer to sea level, and if you have north/south mode enabled, then growing seasons are much longer in the south. There are several configurable options, including being able to enable/disable the temperature, drinking water & crop growth features independently.

    No, this is not another topic for animals to cross servers!!! Here is my plight: I own an island deed. - Wow... that's great! What's so bad about that? - Well, here's the thing: As a breeder, I like to have a diversity of animals and own different types of animals on my deed. I like to breed 5-speed horses and hell horses, but I also like to breed 5-speed bulls and war-traited pigs and all kinds of other "useless" well-traited animals just for fun or my own private enjoyment. Unfortunately on an island deed, my possibility to breed a variety of animals is extremely limited. Now, in a realm like Wurm where bulk storage bins and knarrs filled with large crates are standard, I feel like the lack of possibility to transport animals in crates is extremely annoying and unnecessary. I therefore have this proposal: Implement Animal Transport Boxes A possible crafting recipe: 1x Iron Fence Bars, 5x Large Nails, 50 Planks // Uses Fine Carpentry - Possible Skill Requirement To Build: 50 A possible variation: 3 different types of transport boxes, one small, one medium and one large depending on the size of the animal one wishes to transport. A possible loading capacity: Large Cart - 2 // Corbita - 5 // Cog - 3 // Knarr - 8 // Caravel - 10 A possible error message when trying to cross servers: You are not allowed to cross servers with animals on board. Please unload all animal transport boxes before trying to cross servers. Now, with this system, animal transport boxes would help people not only transport animals to island deeds that have no possible way of obtaining animals that can't swim at this point in time, but it would also solve another important issue: Currently, when trading with horses or other animals, if one gets disconnected while leading horses for example, the horses are un-lead and by the time one reconnects they might have run off into all different directions. With this system in place, animals would be safely loaded into ships and trading would be safer. If not animal transport boxes, maybe at least let us hitch animals to large carts and ships so they don't get lost when we get disconnected while sailing with them.

    So you've probably heard of the wonderful WurmAPI that Warlander created. You've also probably heard of the exciting new map generator made by Budda himself! Well, this isn't nearly as exciting, but it may be useful! MapViewer opens the files generated by WGenerator, or any other map generator that uses WurmAPI. News I've gone away from including IDE-specific project files. You'll find everything you need to build this in a handy maven config. I also went to Travis to allow for faster integration of contributions from the community. Lastly I added some info to the tooltips when you mouse over pixel (tiles) on the map! Rework is in progress. I'm adding functionality to help with generating map images via command line and tile them for use with map frameworks. Features Supports all current map views (Isometric (Wurm-style 3D), Terrain (flat), Cave/Ore view, Topographical) Toolbar to control various options in each view. Status bar/mouse over for map details! (Click on a spot to update the status bar, or check Show Mouseover) Save the entire map image, or just the current viewport under the File menu. Change Log v.1.3.3 [Nov 20 2016] Tool Tips & Build Info Added flower and grass info to tool tips and build info to the about tab. v1.3.2 [Nov 12 2016] Contributions and CI This release has been a long time waiting! Code maintenance includes: Features / Fixes: Command-line support from Yoplitein Smoother zooming and quality on mouse-over by andyneff v1.2.0 [Oct 27 2015] App Refresh! New Icon! Now attempts to use system look and feel by default. Open Map - reworked to be easier to use. Large Map Size - Will now warn when the map size is too big to load in current available memory. Save Images - Remembers the last folder, auto-generates image names for quicker saving, general improvements/fixes. Bug fix: PNGs save correctly now! Now uses threads for loading map files, rendering the map image, and saving map images. Displays a small box indicating progress or activity. (Not all API activities allow monitoring of progress) Name of map (taken from the folder the map files are stored in) now appears in the title bar. Map dimensions now appear in the new status bar. Zoom is preserved when the map is refreshed or view changed. Options window refactored into a toolbar Toolbar tabs also function as view changers Removed the auto-refresh checkbox. This is now default functionality. Removed Save Settings - this is done automatically. Changed Restore Defaults to Reset to fit the toolbar better. Map Details now show in status bar when clicking on Terrain, Topographical, and Cave View maps. Added Show Mouseover checkbox to toggle map details on a mouse hover. Improved scrolling and zoom. New Help & About menu Everything is also bound to hotkeys! No mouse needed (except for mouse over details) Terrain is the new default view. Normal is now Isometric. Releasing version 1.2.0 under the MIT License. v1.02 [Oct 19 2015] Usability Fixes Made file choosing more intuitive. Fixed a possible infinite loop bug. Added Auto Refresh Map to Options for real-time map refreshes as you change settings. To disable this behavior, simply uncheck the box. Added an actual version number too. v1.01 [Oct 18 2015] Cross-platform Fix Fixed an oversight for file paths on other platforms. Set the file chooser to default to the user's home directory. v1.00 [Oct 18 2015] Usability Fixes Initial push and release. Note You must have all of the files generated by WurmAPI in a single folder. This means all five map files (top_layer.map, rock_layer.map, resources.map, flags.map, and map_cave.map should be in the same folder) GitHub: https://github.com/xorith/MapViewer/ (Eclipse project files included, WurmAPI (wurmapi.jar and common.jar under /lib) Download latest version: https://github.com/xorith/MapViewer/releases (runs standalone, no compiling or libraries needed. Tested under Java 1.8, Windows.) Running Linux? Let me know how it runs! Possible Future Features Database interaction to place village map markers and other Points of Interest Overlay grid lines based upon custom settings Artistic effects (fog of war, old paper map, etc) Ability to draw on map images Ability to paint map terrain data on maps.

    No. There is your answer. You dont need retro to do it. I'm so fed up with the lies and false promises. Stop wasting time trying to change anything and just accept the fact pvp is not going to last.

    This is NOT a bashing, sorry if it sounds like one... Either way, alone 2 people I know made applications to volunteer as a Dev but didn't even get an answer, at all. One of the guys known as @Army tried even 3 times, but after not even getting a simple answer he obviously stopped trying. This guy I am talking about coded custom content for several PvP servers and in my eyes is a god, so what you stated, to just simply apply, is ######...sorry. Let's not even talk about the second guy, cause he is the main target of forum mods. He posts bugfixes MONTHS before they magically get into the game and doesn't even get credit for it... just got this screenshot btw, ye...just apply....pffff sure

    1. Player stands on the mine tile and activate the tool (could be new tool or just dioptra) 2. He can right click tile floor or ceiling and click MEASURE 3. He gets a messages: XX corner is lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) XX corner is X slopes higher then the lowest one (where XX could be NE/NW/SE/SW and X will be number of slopes) example: NE corner is lowest one NW corner is 10 slopes higher then the lowest one SE corner is 15 slopes higher then the lowest one SW corner is 5 slopes higher then the lowest one for some corners on the same level: NE corner is lowest one NW corner is lowest one SE corner is 15 slopes higher then the lowest one SW corner is 5 slopes higher then the lowest one

    In reading the Official Responses from the Dev. Team, I have gathered that: 1. We know the current stituation is unfair. 2. The current situation will continue until we have developed the Perfect Solution in 6 months or so. 3. At the point the Perfect Solution is completed we will release it and all will be Balanced and Fair. Therefore, my forcast for my game play is: 1. For the next 9-18 months I can expect to see fewer and fewer Lib Players. 2. During that time period I can expect to continue to receive continued deliveries of Terraforming events as I can't compete competitively in the Valrei Game and there is no point anyway. 3. During that same period I can expect that my enemies will continue to accumulate Tomes and special armor materials unapposed, as well as add more WL & BL Player Gods to their menagerie. 4. At some point in that time period the Balanced and Fair system will be released. I will be told that all is good now. The fact that my enemies have had several years of unapposed play is irrelevant get out there and compete. As a special reward we will provide you with a new New Affliction to rebuild your deeds on because the New Affliction looks more like a moonscape than Old Affliction. Wargame: "A strange game, the only winning move is to not play."

    Based on a map I found on google images. The map has most biomes and ore spawned in. I know I forgot to put clay in - there might be other things missing. Let me know and I will probably do a revised version at some point. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fgnvrl662oj0yln/westeros.zip?dl=0

    Maybe it's insane, but I suggested once to remove Ele map and replace with Chaos one (in current state), thus merging both clusters. It's almost win-win situation: - all pvp players on one server - Epic players keep their home servers effort, nothing is reset - Chaos players keep their map effort, nothing is reset - Elevation players lose their effort on the map but there could be possible refund for traders / deed / PMK founding costs (with deed planner you can even import deed map and check for materials, to get exact amount of any material used to add to refund) Other terms: - Chaos kingdoms are PMK after reset, now they can decide if they stay PMK or join one of three Kingdom presets - Epic players can join Kingdom presets on Chaos or one of the existing PMK - Name change possibility for players with the same or similar names or one-time change for all players

    See where it goes? How about starting with a simple answer to my e-mail at least? There is absolutely no info about the process or any developer positions, so please tell me what you expect us to do then. Answering that by a simple e-mail obviously wasn't possible. I even messaged you on Steam again after I recieved no answer to the e-mail, and guess what... you didn't replied as well. Of couse I could have messaged you again and again until you answered, but I'm not running after a position I'm not recieving any infos about. It looks like he's not even reading PMs, wich is highly unprofessional for someone in this position in my opinion.

    This thread was created to ask some pretty basic questions about our intentions with PvP, whether we had plans to not only address existing issues but expand upon some features within PvP. I think the fact a major part of our current plans involve the Valrei system should show we have faith in epic, and will continue to work on the issues it faces. As many have stated, PvP in itself for the most part works, there are some issues here and there which we will address, but Epic has issues that include the Valrei system AND the current map, which we're all well aware exist. The problem with every PvP discussion becoming a merge or reset thread is that it takes focus away from the actual issues that impact PvP, regardless of whether the servers were merged, or epic was reset tomorrow there would still be issues that need attention, and they're the issues we wish to address. Once we have our frameworks fleshed out with our current projects we'll be pushing forward to public discussion and feedback, and I look forward to seeing that come, as I'm sure you are. Until that time though, feel free to put forward your own issues, ideas and suggestions (like that meditation thread!) but do avoid the usual merge or reset discussion, we've stated our position on that and continuing to raise it only means less focus on what actually needs fixing.

    I thought the village message board a great idea, kinda like a mini-forum for people to leave messages for offline players. I don't know about others, but I don't carry a paper and pen when I'm visiting neighbors and friends. Maybe the board can be stocked with them to become useful. I'm all for realism, but communication is hard enough in a global world without adding more barriers. Let alone finding a new player with the skill and tools to make the paper and ink. I know there is the recruitment board, but I'm not looking to recruit, just leave messages to others. On top of this, paper notes can not be edited.

    A big issue for me is, they came to us already almost a year ago saying it was a priority for them to work on pvp and than we had to basically pester them every news post for months just to get 1 minor issue like the info minister seeing people who enter kingdom influence fixed after pvp was supposedly a "focus" and they went around to everyone asking how they could fix it than they forgot about it or decided on other priority's for the last year instead after hyping all of us up that things would finally happen ya that was a great idea. So for me, and a lot of other users I play with a plan is so past due that action is the only thing that would shut most of us up after being strung along for so long and lied to over and over about when or if something would be fixed going back even before the current people where in charge the cycle just went on when the torch was passed down and we had hope for a little bit with retro coming in to talk to us that maybe just maybe you would do something positive for once for pvp servers without us having to force you to do it through weeks of pestering and asking where it is. Nope clearly to much to ask for... Don't get me wrong, I would love them to give out an action plan for what they are going to do but I won't believe it nor will I stop giving them crap about it till I see something concrete being actually done. Talk is cheep and we have had so much talk and almost 0 action on it. It almost comes down to the old saying "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" I'm upto letting them fool me about 8 times now so I'm feeling pretty stupid and don't know if I can place my trust in them till they decide to stop talking about it and actually do something about it.

    I'd like to generally thank to all those who had a contribution in creating Wurm and making it last over years, people I heard of and people I never heard of but who did their job "behind the curtains", people who are still part of the team and people long gone to fulfill other goals they had. I'd also like to generally thank to all players making Wurm a "home over the internet", a place to enjoy, relax, feel good and wanting to come back as soon as you hit "Quit" (for the day, of course). Luckily, they are the largest part of the community! I want to name and fame Bigby, the one who took me in his village after I kept wandering off and dying in my first days of Wurm, the one who gave me my first piece of land to build my first (messed up) house, and trusted me enough to give me full access to the village possessions. I want to name and fame Ghengizcohen, who adopted me as his favorite noob the moment I joined my first village, and still treats me as his favorite noob , who patiently kept on answering my silly questions, removed parked-in-oaks boats after I was sailing them, the one who gifted me my first horsey, my precious beautiful TammyDream (still alive and living for as long as the game will allow it) and pretty much helped me with anything someone could ever possible want. I want to name and fame Celeia, Pristine's famous breeder, who gave me my first 5 traited champion cat (If you ever make it back to Wurm, fluffy fairy, he's fine and doing well in the castle I built for him). I want to name and fame dear friends, Ami, Grannymitch, Arelia, Lisabet, Hailene, Margus .. and so many more others, who never failed to put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart, or to listen to my rants when I was .. in a bad mood. I cannot name, fame (shame) and thank to those who are using any pretext to spread around rage, anger, hate, to those who live only to make others lives miserable, to those ruining the joy and excitement of the game only because they can. Although I could name a big bunch of them, I wouldn't do it simply because they don't deserve to be mentioned at all, and even less to be made known. Happy wurming!

    Talios, in time you spent with this topic, you could have your blacksmithing decently improved - problem solved (without need to chance source code of game, risking introducing another problems/bugs. )

    Pretty accurate, even if you say sarcasm. They keep creating window's of opportunity in Wurm, at this point everything is "unintentional by the devs" when it comes to things that have been in the game for years. Lately some of the changes are in my opinion trying to recreate the game to suit their play styles. We subscribers don't really have a say, unless we herd together saying it's bad. It's unfortunate. This is WO not WU, in WU you can mold the game to suit your play styles. I seriously don't want this game to become Window's of Opportunity Online. I ask what's the point in playing if this keeps happening. This is bad, Clatius. I don't see the need to completely remove this random element from the game. It allows newer players to go above 20 blacksmithing, carpentry, etc. New people shouldn't be forced to have to buy pelts left over from when it was possible. Use some logic please. This goes out to the entire Wurm community, stop asking for nerfs without thinking it through! A lot of them get implemented and it sucks!

    One of this years someone or a group will have to get together from each server and write a history book on Wurm. Going all the way back to Golden( when it was a actual playable area), WIld, and the other Home servers. Have heard some stories and seen some screenshots from them days and think it would be a interesting read for sure.

    90+QL hides(And then turning them into 90+ql leather) is already hard enough. Don't make it harder.

    Not really liking your *suggestion here and in particular in reference to Pelts. Always very nice when hitting the random jackpot and producing a very high level one way beyond butchering skill level. Also this would reduce the QL of meats from butchered animals, which again is a negative effect reducing in turn the QL of cooking results due to lower QL meats. =Ayes=

    In regards to the initial pvp discussions I had, the original plan was my feedback being worked on by the in house team, rolf, alex and erik (erik probably being the main one as he worked on the valrei stuff too) Of course, that landed in with the announcement of alex and erik leaving, which threw things sideways, and then budda taking the PM role, things were kind of disheveled. A lot suggested in there has been pushed through, especially the inssues with information minister, DR stuff, sotg reductions (though many wanted it flat out removed) So I do understand it felt dropped off, but we are reaching the point where we can start sharing the PvP works we have, and discussing how they will impact the game and what our plans are.

    -1 also. its hard enough to get high ql pelts even with good butchering skill, most changes lately have been nerfs and not beneficial to the game imho. Please dont add another ............

    The logic here, is that you dislike the changes to foraging and botanzing so you want to try and make some other skill that doesn't act like foraging or botanizing but more like making cordage rope making ( random Q even with 100 Q wemp fiber, until your high skill before it comes out good/consistent ) to be changed because you think this will make you feel happy inside... The truth is only you can make you happy.

    The buying and selling of accounts diminishes the whole concept of this game, that being to gradually raise your characteristics and skills over time. The very slow advancements of these aspects is specifically designed to add value to time spent within the game. For the game developer to then allow and endorse the selling of these accounts to others is in direct conflict with this concept. In turn it trivializes the work and time over the years that all those who have developed their *own* characters have put into them. Purchased accounts are just ghost shells of players from the past and I fail to see how those who have advanced their *own* characters can have much if any respect for those who inhabit them. The game concept has been damaged and degraded enough already by this endorsed policy of account sales. Let those who choose to purchase accounts take the responsibility upon themselves for the results, as the person in charge has "wisely" sought to make themselves immune from any repercussions as a result. =Ayes=

    Same here. The settings file gets bloated sometimes right after a fresh copy is started, sonetimes works fine for days. As a workaround I've saved a copy of my binds file and I simply copy it back when launcher starts slow or my keybinds start not to properly save after logout

    I was summoned... And here I had hoped it was to something useful and interesting. Instead it's someone quoting me out of context from an old thread about a tired and fruitless topic. I direct you to Retrograde. I only speak to players who directly need my assistance, and the server hamsters. The server hamsters are the ones who truly care about me. You lot, you have no heart.

    Is that really true? I must be missing out. 10 years and i've been playing this game all wrong... And I think they need to disallow the practice. I mean, you said it yourself.... The problems that account selling bring to the table far surpass the benefits that certain types of people receive from the practice itself. It muddies player reputation, it creates loopholes in security, etc.... all for someone to take the easy way out and not grind/invest time themselves.

    This both worries and excites me. Magic is finally getting peeked at, which is a good thing, but it's from a PvP perspective, which has been less than wonderful in its buffs and QoL changes where magic is concerned.
