  1. Created local server via LAN for family to play together on...logged out, then shut-down server, turned off computer. 18-20 hours later I turn it back on, log in and all food I'd cooked was rotten and got multiple messages saying "...breakfast rotten, you throw it away..." or words to that effect. My question: does the game track time, even when the server's shut down, so items such as the food I cooked will decay when we're not playing? This is on the default 'Adventure' map, if it matters. We found an area designated as "Dueling Ring" -- if I create a GM character and destroy the markers will that affect any other part of the game (is it tied in with any quests and/or missions) -- will getting rid of it break something else? Two of us started in 'Hearth'...while exploring we've found roads that make no sense at all: roads going up cliff faces that are nearly vertical...and the road ends at nothing. Other places there are roads that are only 15-20 tiles long, zig-zagging back and forth and connected to nothing. Is this 'normal' for this map, or an indication something is bugged/glitched? Have verified the game-files via Steam and nothing changed. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  2. Installed WU via Steam...started local server by reading thru this guide on Steam: Had 2 choices for the 'map': 'Adventure' and 'Creative' -- I chose 'Adventure' -- because I thought I'd have an in-game tutorial, and begin in a 'starter town', etc. But when I finally got my character into the game I spawned into country-side near a small Village named 'Winkshir'...when I approached I was attacked by 'Spirit Templars' (spelling?) On my own private world/server??! Ran away, far enough that the 3 templars went back to the village...then I looked at in-game map and can find only three icons for locations on the map: Winkshir on east side; Hearth on west side; and Litocania to the south. Nothing to indicate a 'starter town' or 'safe area' where a new player can begin. Did I set something up incorrectly while getting the server/game to start, in that I did not spawn as new player at a starter town, and I have locations that attack me on-sight within first moments in-game? Or is this part of the "Adventure" on that map? Perhaps I was misinformed, in that I thought I'd be beginning as new player at a 'starter town', etc.? I started the beginner tutorial, which begins with basic controls, movements, etc. and has me equip items from inventory -- when I got to the stage where it wanted me to cut down a tree I logged out to look at the settings on the launcher and for the LAN server to see if there was something that stood out as being incorrect for what I wanted...then when I logged back into the game 15-20 minutes later the starter tutorial was re-set back to the beginning, as though I'd not done the stages from the previous data not saved because I quit while out in the country-side, and not in a village/town or on a deed, etc.? Played the game many years ago (started in 2009), but not via Steam, and not on own server, etc. -- I'm hoping I overlooked something simple that can be changed on the server settings. I also noticed, or rather could not find, a way to delete the LAN server I started and begin again...would I have to go into files on my computer and delete the server there, to try again? Sorry for rambling questions...any help or links to guides that would help someone like me who's not computer 'savvy' would be helpful. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  3. That was my thought also...I've been gone for awhile and have not built a ship as yet to test, but as others have said it's not a huge amount of decay off-deed; and the repair and improvement process will garner one a bit of skill gain over time. Thank you for the replies and information and opinions.
  4. Is there a significant difference in the amount of decay my ship will experience over time when Moored off-deed versus on-deed? Trying to decide if it's worth it to include shoreline in Deed for one or two ships, or just repair and improve from time to time? Thank you for your time and assistance.
  5. Is the time & date of Wurm not the same on all if one on server A uses '/time' would they not get the same message as someone using it on server B (current time, day of the week and month)? I ask because recently in CA chat someone mentioned that certain fruits were in-season/harvestable, and another told them that it might be so on their server but not others. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  6. Xanadu down?

    Unable to log into Independence as of approx. 5 minutes ago. After entering password, etc. launcher tries to connect and then indicates server not available.
  7. Do Hedges planted on tile borders with five sprouts cycle through their growth stages/ages such as trees do...trees start small and eventually shrivel and then start again, going through cycles. If Hedges do this then they'd not be good to use as fences to keep animals in, correct? Since at their youngest/smallest size they do not block movement. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  8. Is there a list of Public Traders (I am on Independance server)? Thank you for your time and assistance.
  9. Thank you for the reply and information...will check the permissions.
  10. Ok, this may be a bug...perhaps someone can enlighten me -- logged the 'Alt' in, which is the Deed Holder, and under 'Manage Building' he gets the option to change the name of the structure...but my character who started, finalized, and is building the structure cannot . In the end, I was able to change the structure's name, so I'm satisfied...but something seems 'off' about the way I had to do it.
  11. I recently returned to the game after leaving around 4-years ago, and am building my first 'new' building, and discovered I do not get a 'Writ' for the that working as intended (note: building only has 7/12 ground-floor walls completed)...will I get the Writ when it's completed? I've gone through all the options I can find for the 'Permissions', but find no-where that allows me to re-name the structure. When I r-click on a wall I have two choices under 'Permissions': 'Manage All Doors' 'Manage Building' Under 'Manage Building' I can assign a new owner, and assign permissions (access, use, modify, etc.) to various people but nothing about the name of the structure. Is it not possible now? Edit: Note -- the building is on my Deed, but an Alt. is the 'Deed Holder', if that makes any difference. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  12. Thank you all for the replies and information...'Deed Stakes' are new since I was here last, as well as the ability to make the Deed rectangular rather than only square. The Deed Stake sounds really mentioned above saves me from having to go find a trader, etc. I love this game...logged in for 1st time in approx. 4 years and had to remember how to open inventory, how to manipulate the screens/windows, etc., and while I'm putzing around with all that a Troll walked up and 'Welcomed me back', lol -- 5-minutes in the game and dead. Thank you for your time and assistance.
  13. Left in 2013 and re-subscribed yesterday...have a cpl. questions to get back up-to-date: >To place a Deed in an area that was previously Deeded and now abandoned will an existing structure hinder me? Does every wall have to be gone before I can Deed over it (currently it shows one or two walls left). >Deeds are still sold via Traders? Thank you for your time and assistance.
  14. Ok, thank you. I was unclear about the part where it says you must be the owner of the ship/boat to cross from one server to another -- thought perhaps the passenger would have to disembark, swim across and then be picked up again on other side.
