    You know, I've killed my fair share of uniques (41 on Freedom, Chaos and Epic combined according to Niarja) and I don't consider myself to be a unique hoarder by any stretch of the imagination. Of these 41 Unique slayings, only one comes to mind as having necessitated GM intervention, and it was one in which the unique was actively being killed, and some jerk that was still convinced he had made the claim (and was trying to pen it) was attempting to bandage the dragon to heal any damage we would cause. The Wurm community, although far diminished in population from "the good ole days", has survived just fine for 10+ years without the need for formalized GM "babysitting" of unique sightings, claims, captures and slayings. Such bad behavior by players should fall under the "play nice or we'll rip your heart out" thread previously posted by Enki. I refuse to believe that a blanket policy, which has been an unspoken rule for the last 10 years needs to be enforced by the staff for a population 10% the size of what it was before. I'm very disappointed that Enki had to make that post, but I'm even more disappointed by what I read in it... So if my "alt" (which is a fairly broad term, especially in the world of PvP) enters local of a unique fight, I could be banned? By design, any premium account can (and will) receive loot from a slain unique within their local. I, like many other players, have several characters that I play (priests etc)…. so these "alts" run the risk of being banned? Unique slayings, impalongs and public gatherings like Rifts are half of the reason why the new priest spell Summon Soul was implemented in the first place! But now it's only allowed if you're on the Unique "white list"? BULL !#@$#% This level of petty non-sense is a clear de-evolution of what this game used to be, with regard to the need to both make and reinforce rules like these that have been laid down by Enki. Not only does it open the door for "gray" interpretation of an already murky rule, (digging dirt in local of a dragon before anyone else makes it my claim? REALLY?) but also paves the way for additional "rules" to be imposed on an already dying community by a select few who suddenly see it best to micro-manage the player experience, despite the very small percentage of the population who still bother to steal find all the uniques.

    The alts comment isn't about not being able to bring alts as preordained with your slaying group. It's about hiding alts in a slaying you are not welcome in in order to gain a share of the loot and lessen the spread between the people actively invited. We would rather not have these guidelines in place either, but there has been a rise of harassment and griefing with uniques to the point that we as a gm team need to know what action to take and our reasoning behind it. With that in place we have made it transparent so players know what to expect and how we will approach any situation. Hopefully it's never needed as Nd sits as strange fluff

    "Commit one of these actions within range of the unique." What is "in range?"

    Gotta agree, played on a lot of servers(that includes WO for several years) and this one really shows some potentials with 24/7 GM or ArchGM help around. If there is a problem with anything, they are quick to let us know if it can be taken care of now or will be delayed for a few hours. Other players are friendly and will offer a hand with anything you need. Events are fun and interesting, first one I did was a server wide hunt for domestics animal kills in 3 hr time frame. Had 1st thru 5th place rewards and a steryl lump for each kill for everybody. Got something I have not seen before yet, NPC Crafters there that can imp a item up for cost but limit to a certain QL to keep player made things more valuable. Overall it's been a fun server to play on and it's growing a fast rate!

    I'm creating this here, just to have a place to show early works in progress of my attempts to create a custom graphic pack for Wurm Unlimited, that will be using textures from the popular Minecraft texture pack: Sphax PureBDcraft. I've gotten the "ok" from the BDcraft team, that if I get the pack to a completed state, that I could have it posted on their forums for others to use it, (somewhat of a rule with their textures - others can use them for games, but they have to give credit, and they have to be distributed via their site). As of right now, I've only got fairly basic terrain textures (not even close to all of them) done so far, and then some other odds and ends here and there, mainly for experimenting with the complexity of how this will get... As I'm only working with textures as texture files, and not in a 3d editor to do it as it's seen in the game world or anything, some stuff that has complex models, like the furnace will take me much tinkering. Some of the stuff that you'd think is complex, really isn't, such as the log piles, I'm quite happy with how those turned out. I'll be posting more progress updates, and screenshots as I carry on with the project though - Credit to the Sphax PureBDcraft Team for the original textures Progress Updates and Screenshots: -Week prior of April 21, 2019: Latest post - Well it's about time that I did an alpha release of this graphic pack for people to give a try, and give feedback for. At present, I'm open to suggestions about all the textures, essentially consider everything to be a placeholder for now, as it's still an early alpha release. Just a heads up, that because this is an entire graphics.jar file, it is quite a hefty download, about 1.3gb. Also make sure that you backup your original graphics.jar file, unless you don't mind doing a reinstall of your game to replace it.
