    Dear Wurmians, Let me tell you a love story gone bad. When I just started playing Wurm, it was love at first sight and I continued to play for 2,5 years with lots of love and devotion. I trusted Wurm completely, I may not have always agreed with everything he did, but as in every good relationship, we always could find enough mutual ground to stay together. But today, Wurm has cheated on me. Let me explain: For months I have been working on completing this one personal goal: make 5000 liters of wine. Mind, I'm more of a casual player, I have some sort of RL and a full time job. But nevertheless, I have spend a lot of my valuable free time in completing this achievement. It was not something I enjoyed doing, but I was looking forward for the reward at the end. And finally, more than a month before the deadline, I was finished with the 113 barrels it took, still leaving me plenty of time for the 2 last achievements to complete. I was chuffed, I still loved Wurm and the future looked bright. But after all the barrels turned into wine, I still didn't get the achievement. My first thought was, that this was all just a big misunderstanding, that it was just a bug or something. After all, I still have all 5040 liters of wine stored in my deed. I thought that if I could only talk to Wurm, he would say it was just all a big mistake and that he would fix it. I had so much trust in Wurm. But after talking to a friend of Wurm (who had experienced the same thing), all my hope was chattered to ever completing this achievement. The reason it failed? I must have left the server while a certain amount of the barrels turned into wine, so they didn't count. I did make all of them, like he asked, but some of them just didn't count. (Wurm had never told me about this rule.) And so, Wurm has broken my heart, and with all the trust gone I don't know if we can stay together any longer. I'm already disbanding the first one of my 4 large deeds because, Wurm, if your going to cheat on me, you can no longer have my money. The end? I have no idea, I still hope Wurm will contact me and some of the broken trust can be restored. Happy New Year Wurmians. Alegria

    Wurm is a great game and much of this is due to the team behind the scenes and Retrograde in particular has done much to inform, entertain and create bridges between the mechanics of Wurm and the players. The warning about the wine-making not being counted if on another server is indeed noted in Wurmpedia, however, not all players are avid readers of the wiki and instead simply enjoy the game without thinking or worrying about the nuances. Some will say that players should check and read the 'small-print' and they are culpable if they fail to do so but I feel that many will sympathise with Alegria. It is surely plain to see that Alegria has created the requisite amount of wine but in the eyes of the game they have not. Is this not unjust? We are dealing here with a wonderful game, but a game that needs players. What a wonderful opportunity for Wurm to say thank you to a player for making Wurm their home by considering their plight- after all it IS the season of goodwill!.

    This would probably be a lot of work to do properly but, please let us make sleds and go sledding down big hills with good slopes! Obviously a sled can't turn much and would follow the curve of slopes and crash into trees, but it could (hopefully!) pick up massive speed on the right hill! Imagine the projects people could start to make the perfect sledding hill, even in a limited way to facilitate travel! (Quickest way down a mountain!) Let me hop in a supreme oak sled and race my mates down Dragon Fang!

    The problem is, the goal just says you need to make that much wine. Which they did. So, it should count. It doesn't, because they were on a different server while it fermented, but the goal doesn't say "make X wine without changing server", it just says "make X wine". You are never warned about this in-game. I've had the same thing happen to me with the trash heap goal. That one is a great deal easier, so it wasn't a big problem, but I have to say, I was a bit annoyed. Maybe it should be a bit smarter and actually merge player data instead of just overwriting with the newer one. Or maybe, when a server updates the player data for a player that is on a different server, the server should communicate the change to the other server, so it can do the same operation. (As long as it transfers the operation and not just the new value, this should be fine. Like "add 10kg of wine made") I have finished my goals, so I'm not longer personally affected by this (apart from losing out on achievements, I suppose... don't really care), but I would definitely consider this a bug.

    if they are saying that they cant fix this then they need to explain why others were helped. I had Enki come and count my wine. He verified all of mine from pre patch and post.

    On the 19 May 2018 a tunnel of considerable undertaking was started, which was eventually completed on the 26 November 2018. It was a long and grueling 6 months, for the persons involved in the project to connect the ocean in the east at Serendipity Bridge to Shake Lake. The tunnel comprises a single walkway and double boat tiles enabling all forms of boats to access Shark Lake as well as an additional entrance / exit to the steppe area. Our thanks goes out to the following persons for their assistance in the construction process and the removal / mining out of the 57 veins that were encountered. Angelklaine (for the removal of the last few veins) Brentox Delightfuldee Dystern Epryss / Helmbow Kochinac Led (planning of west bridge) Mrcoolman Neko Odynn (for the use of Valfreyja) Relson Skyfalls Sputnix Velvetsun Yaga for prospecting the pesky veins (hope i have not forgotten anyone) Stats for those interested : Main tunnel is 505 tiles in length Material Used 2000+ tiles excavated- reinforced and cladded / paved 2k+ slabs 4k+ logs 6k+ shafts 4k+ ribbons 10k+ mortar 10k+ sandstone/slate bricks East Entrance / Exit Tunnel Interior Tunnel Interior - Steppe Entrance / Exit West Entrance / Exit

    Cancer Sucks According to statistics, approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. When you think about the size of your family, the statistics catch up to you, and suddenly cancer becomes something you experience first-hand. I am no stranger to cancer. When I was 7-years old my oldest sister, Tammy, died from Leukemia. Then thirty years later, I got the diagnosis of a malignant tumor in my abdomen. Thanks to good doctors and a bit of luck, I am now a 10-year survivor of Stage 3 Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma. We recently lost Tich, one of the developers of Wurm Online, to cancer. Tich designed many of the features we know and love, including Bridges, Highways and Bees. Her death touches all of us in the Wurm Online universe. And so we honor Tich's memory with a this fundraiser in hopes that science can help find cures for a disease that affects too many. We have partnered with the Cancer Research Institute, which has a system of personal fundraisers: https://fundraise.cancerresearch.org/fundraiser/1809564 The NEXA clan is planning a series of auctions on the WTA forum to benefit this fundraiser. Winners of auctions will be able pay for their item(s) with a donation to this fundraiser as a form of payment. (They take credit cards.) We'll take silvers and PayPal too, with all proceeds going to the fundraiser. These auctions will be linked here and will start soon. Sincerely, Jackjones From the desk of Enki (Head Game Master) Disclaimer: This fundraiser is not affiliated with Wurm Online or parent company Code Club AB. As per Wurm Online rules all transactions are done at your own risk same as any other auction. This is not a personal fundraiser. This thread has been approved for publishing as an exception to the standard rules (pending rule updates) by the Head Game Master of Wurm Online.

    I hope I am able to continue seeing the community come together to help its members when something like this happens. Seeing the offers of help are the reason that I feel Wurm has not betrayed me.

    If this is not enough, let me know how much more you need. I'll help with the bill to get you the rest of the grapes, if this will keep you in the game.

    Just in case this hasn't been clear before: I did put in a ticket. I told them all the wine was still there. But he told me nothing can be done. I would imagine they could search the logs to see if I made all the 113 barrels myself, and that they could fix it manually. But nope. They may have fixed it for multiple players, but they haven't fixed it for me. Should I just make another 14 barrels? I considered it. But grape season is very close to the deadline. Not enough time to harvest, prepare and make it ferment. Unless your a 24/7 player maybe. And even then it would still be a gamble. And there's no guaratee that it would work this time. I didn't wait until the last minute just to prevent this. I got the last grapes from some friends to finish this in time, all for nothing. So should I spend even more time to complete the last 2 goals, just to fail again at the finishline? I think it's been enough. I just wish I could get back all that time wasted ...

    Sorry to hear this tragic story. If it can be corroborated by Wurm, I hope that the spirit of the law may be applied rather than the letter of the law. If unsuccessful, I would be glad to give you 500 grapes and 4 small wine barrels of maple sap to enable you to attempt to reach your target. They are currently on S Pristine. Happy New Year to you Alegria and we will hopefully see you in Wurm in 2019.

    !!!Location Change!!! The shop has moved from the forums to our own website Https://Macoofer.nl/whats-for-sale Updates! (march 12, 2019) - With one of the new updates came the new journal rewards, also a line for the priests. One of the rewards for those is a +5 in casting power and we now have the ability to cast the already known casts upto 109 cast power!! Have look inside for new superfancy stuff with some incredible casts (more to come soon) - Another change that was made was how the color runes work, the rune now gets a RGB value upon creation (which can be found by examining the rune) So you can tell upfront which color your item will be! To make your new color search even easier I've added a feature to the website that actually shows you a cell in the table with the actual color the rune will give! https://macoofer.nl/jackal-runes/ - Also tons of new stuff has been added and discounts on different sections may pop on and off at any moment, so make sure you keep an eye on it all

    Please allow us to attach a small bell to the fishing rod to help alert us when a fish is nibbling. I'd rather have something in-game rather than have to use an event reader. (Also, maybe give us like 10s to respond, instead of 4s?) Thanks.

    A post nicely written! Unfortunately this is how Wurm works. It may not be convenient, but it has been a known issue for a long time. (It is even mentioned as a warning in Wurmpedia: https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Wine#Notes ) Actually, It happened to me twice when I made my 5000 liters of wine; I lost several barrels of wine. BUT, to be quite honest, this is not really a matter to be heartbroken about - much less to overreact and disband deeds over it. Just make a few barrels more to complete your goal - problem solved! Good luck with your personal goals - you can do it!

    Maybe we should keep a list... Gifts are just that. They're something special we do every year. If anything, this thread goes to show how many people appreciate the gifts we give regardless of how "useful" they are. So congrats. You played yourself.

    *grin* Yet, gifts are given out in social life to strengthen relationships (like i am taming my pig ), so it is not unimportant to make people happy or at least content. But alas, you can never satisfy everybody, and my impression is that the snowman was widely appreciated. Even those whining could prolly sell theirs for a good price.
