    Remove twitter broadcast would be a start, increasing the spawn frequency as well would help. And relocating them after <insert amounts of days> would fix the impossible to find ones on large servers.

    So with Uniques there is always a cloud of drama that follows them. It also seems to be the same groups that find the Uniques as well. What I think will be a good solution would be to remove the server wide messages that alert everyone when a unique spawns. Doing this will mean that players who are just out hunting will stumble across uniques and then will have to figure out how to handle them. It also means while there will still be unique hunting teams going around searching for uniques there will be less people in a small area all looking for the same unique and being in different hunt teams. Aka less drama. So this over all will likely mean that players who are locals on their own server are more likely to find and kill uniques. Players who are not part of hunt teams might get a chance at finding and interacting with them. Less drama over all.

    Maybe slightly off-topic, but related to the original post in a way: I once played a different online game and was part and later a leader of a guild. In our guild we had a player - a relatively young fellow - who loved playing in a role of a "tank". He wasn't the best tank we had, but he was certainly not the worst and he was visibly improving from week to week... working very hard at getting better. His joy from being part of a large guild and having an increasingly important role was very visible to us all. One day, he simply vanished. We learned quickly that he passed away. It turned out that the player was a very sick person with deteriorating health who was in late stage of his illness. He was bound to a wheelchair and had increasing trouble performing many every day actions... except playing on the computer. The game we played - especially our guild - became very important to him, as it was his only source of entertainment that he could indepenently enjoy. His parents told us later that he often spoke of us and considered our acceptance of him a very important factor in his life. Of course, none of us knew he was sick... We were all nice to him, but none of us formed a close bond with the player, nor stopped to chat at length. While my relationship with him was very friendly, to this day I wish I spent a bit more time making him feel a bit more special. So... Don't forget to love people. They leave so fast...

    Stop and wave to every new player you meet, because you don't know who may be lonely and dying for someone to talk to. Just over this past week I've befriended two players who confided that they had no one to talk to or keep them company in-game. They were surprised and overjoyed when I waved to them first and then even engaged with them. One is a disabled player, for example. On a server that's fairly populous. Not sure if every MMO out there has this problem. My gut says "no".

    Hi... I have been working on this monster highway in Southern Xanadu for over a month now to link to Lormere and I finally finished it last night, it was an insane amount of work but also a lot of fun. It opens up a whole lot of wilderness and is most likely the longest continuous highway built in one go, it's also for certain the longest highway entirely paved in sandstone bricks and slabs, obviously seeing those are new. After 1\3 was done, I decided to border the road with moss instead of sand, I just thought it cool cooler for the forest parts. It's a cool ride, many cool scenic spots, places to hunt and a lot of new places to start new deeds. I plan on building a public Inn behind where the fountain is and also a short secondary road to a nearby desert, for hunting, if someone wants too cook at inn I decided to build this thing because we almost never get new players where we are here down south, it's pure luck when someone gets lost and ends up here, so trying to bring some life to our area. The tunnel part which is 207 tiles long is only 1 tile wide at the moment but I'll be completing it in the coming 2 weeks or so, but one can ride through the mountain as is. I've attached a few screenshots and a map showing where the highway is. I did a large part of the work on my own but I did get some precious help from a few players and i wish to thank them. Crysariana for cutting an insane amount of trees, without whom I'd still be at it Baloo for the help in the tunnel, mining (she hates mining ), strongwall where the tunnel opened up into an old mine and 8 hours of digging in the wilderness. Korsarul for donating 24 crates of dirt. Nacciwa for donating 29 crates of dirt. Snowtech for analyzing and some mining in tunnel. Popy for imping my tools which took some serious beating. And all of them who at times were most likely getting a bit fedup of hearing of my crazy highway over a month + period of time. Hopefully, I didn't forget anyone, let me know if I did.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a different looking merchant? How about having the ability to put masks, armor, and/or weapons on your merchants and have it display as if it was a toon with those items on them.

    You need to delete it in the database, that will get rid of the stone and the "you enter the west lake area" We "think" it is in the Zones part, but was months ago we did it. It is quite fine to do so, but as always, when editing the database, back up first Valiance and Kaylie.

    I found the Java 8 131 update 64bit at this site. Uninstalled the new version then installed this one. Wurm is working fine again.

    No trading powders? If thats the goal then why not make it work like Vynora's sleep bonus spell where you can surpass 5 hours.

    Gotta ask, what "quantified experience" is it you have on a new issue (since the cooking update) that primarily effects new toons (that you have not started)? @Angelkaine I gave the Pig Roast a try in WU. Your numbers were a little ass-pully; at QL1, it fed 10% food. QL5 was a good bit better. So I guess I'll cede that if mass-murder of a server's stickable animals is intentionally required to keep a small group of newbies fed, this change doesn't need to enter consideration.

    Youtuber and Wurm player Zephyr Storm visits the Mystic Highlands server under the name Calaway. This first video in a possible series shows how to connect to the server using the Wurm Unlimited client, and what new players will discover in and around the spawn area, Safehold.

    I remember when I first started out years ago, basic tools, no idea what I was doing, I died several times and was starting to lose patience when someone in local asked me if I needed help. They patched me up, gave me some survival advice (stay near water, most mobs cannot swim) and it totally changed my perspective. I continued on my way and bumped in to someone who offered me a plot of land in their village. They gave me some nails and so I started chopping down my first trees to make logs/planks. The fact that I got that help from those two complete strangers all those years ago has directly resulted in my longevity in the game. You really can make a difference if you try.

    Thank you so much for this, Valdor... If anyone wants to read of a very similar story, I found it while exploring another MMO.
