  1. Located roughly G18 on the in-game map. It's a large steppe area of a former settlement, between the Inner Sea and Colossus Lake.
  2. Oak Harbour is located on the Independence server at M21 on the in-game map, right on the eastern shore of Crystal Lake. We've been located at this spot for nearly 10 years now, so there's little fear of the settlement disappearing in the night and leaving you homeless. It's a nice, quiet area with loads of open space around, making it perfect for those who prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of crowded areas. The deed has a fairly massive mine, packed with iron of all qualities, and cursed with loads of gold and sandstone. We've also got zinc, tin, copper, silver, and marble. Clay and tar are right on the shore below the bridge. Our adjoining deed, Oak Harbour Farms supplies nearly 1000 tiles of farmland for any aspiring farmers or ranchers. A large, stocked workshop is open to all villagers, with some basic tools and materials provided. You'd have free reign over a section of land to terraform and build whatever your heart desires. The amount of land is negotiable, depending on how many villagers we have, how active you are, etc., but roughly 10x10 as a general rule. Or, you can just chill in the barracks and make use of the community buildings. There's also plenty of building space within the mine if you'd like to live as a dwarf! Hunters flourish in the area, as we're surrounded by woodland, and next to the Eastern Plains steppe, which is a great locale for your first forays into fighting. Please be aware Oak Harbour does not have templars, and the deed isn't fully enclosed, so be prepared to defend yourself against (or hide from) aggros in the area! There are guard towers that cover the area if you get into a pickle, though. For the most part, our alliance is made up of folks who play somewhat "hermit" style. We're all happy to help as and when we can, but mostly do our own thing. If you're looking for a village with lots of village-participation activities to get involved in, we are probably not the right fit. However, if you're just after a spot to hang out, craft, build, and maybe jump into a chat about how amazing cheese and bacon are, we've got you covered. We do not ask for "rent" or "tax" toward the upkeep of the deed or anything else. While donations to upkeep are certainly welcome, there is zero pressure to spend your hard-earned silver on it! If you might be interested, leave a reply here, send me a forum PM, or catch me in game, and I will do my best to answer any questions you might have. No bigots. No beggars.

  3. We're definitely not going to Chaos. I've just rebuilt a road to the upper part of the deed; perfect for someone who wants to build something with a great view of the lake and Dragon Fang.
  4. I think you'll need to be more specific about the scenario that isn't letting you drag carts up. I have a stone spiral staircase which I'm able to drag loaded carts up just fine. Now, mind you, I am limited as to how full I can make the cart, due to my Body Strength, but that is a separate mechanic.
  5. I've got a full one in my house, which has got around 20k meat, and a few thousand veg, plus various other odds and ends. If you want to separate things by QL (which you will do, when you're a bit farther along in the game), you need to have multiples.
  6. I've been playing since 2009, and never really "worked" in Wurm to get silver. I did sell horses for many years, but that market mostly died after Care For was introduced. Now, I just breed for my own little collection. For me, spending half or more of my gaming time trying to scrape together enough currency to pay for premium just isn't fun, and as such, is a waste of my precious downtime. The Wurm "economy" isn't terribly important to me, as I'm not really driven by any accumulation of wealth. I just like to log in, wander around, make things I need in order to do other things, build stuff, tear stuff down, rebuild, dig holes.... All the things my neighbours IRL would be unhappy with me doing in my garden.
  7. I've long wished we could Log Out of the servers, without closing down the client entirely. Many of us have multiple characters, or share computers with other players, and always restarting the client feels like an unnecessary step; especially with the recently-added step of choosing which client to use. Allowing us to simply "Log Out" and leave the client open would just save time and effort on players' parts, and would bring the Wurm client in line with most MMO game clients. That's all I've got.
  8. Bumpity bump. We've got a few villagers again now, but still plenty of space to build, if anyone is looking for a settlement.
  9. It probably doesn't need to be said, but PLEASE feel free to pass along the GoFundMe link!
  10. As some might be aware, there has been (and continues to be) flooding in the north of England over the last week. In my local area of Doncaster, there have been evacuations, and many homes and businesses have suffered huge losses. One not-for-profit business very special to me has lost nearly everything, and I'd like to help them get back on their feet as much as I can. They not only give books away to children totally free, without any means testing, but they also help people with disabilities, mental health issues, or other barriers to work get work experience and training in a friendly, supportive environment, where you can go to work every day without feeling like you're selling your soul to a corporate monster. They also run 3 local libraries that the city council has given up on, keeping these important community centers going for local residents, most of whom are in deprived areas. When I was finally allowed to legally work in the UK, I had then been out of work for over 5 years, and had lost all confidence in my abilities, and felt very isolated due to my being a foreigner here, being hearing impaired, and dealing with mental health issues. Re-read had a huge hand in rebuilding my self-confidence and setting me up with a good skills base. I loved going to work every day. Unfortunately, I ended up having to move on to another full time, higher paying job, for financial reasons, but I still love Re-Read and support them as much as I can. During the floods, their building was flooded, and they've lost nearly everything. Most of the books are wet, or damaged by the damp. They've had to stop trading, right as the Christmas rush was beginning - their most profitable time of the year. They've no electricity. The building has been damaged, and the cleanup task is daunting. And this isn't a business sitting on any pile of cash, because it all goes into supporting the kids, the libraries, and the employees. And it's raining again here. Please PM me for a link to the GoFundMe set up by one of the directors. If you can pitch in even a couple of dollars, or a few quid, it will REALLY help them, and these are good people who deserve to be helped back to their feet again. Every little bit helps! Due to forum restrictions, I'm not able to post the link to the GoFundMe campaign, but just PM me for the link, or Google 'ReRead Flood GoFundMe'
  11. Could be fun. I could track how far I am from catching up to Jah without looking on Niarja Not sure I'd love an "All Time" list, but maybe "last 30 days" or something (or both), so it only showed active players? Or maybe a league table sort of thing, so that people could opt in - that way the hermit folks can carry on their quiet grinds without being pestered, but the competitive people can have their little rivalries.
  12. No, your login details are stored locally, in text files. The fields in the launcher are populated from these files, not the login server. The login server then authenticates the details when you click to log in.
  13. I mean launch the client but don't click the button to log in to the play servers. I don't know how much more detail I can give. This is on a Win 10 64bit machine, 64bit client.
  14. Sorry, I've just noticed I've posted this under WU when it should be under WO. Could a mod possibly move it to the correct section? Thanks in advance!
  15. None of the above. To clarify, changes can be made and retained in the second file generated, but not the first. Try it. Move your key binds.txt file out of your default profile, then start the client (but don't connect). Make a change to the file, save, and then connect. Examine the file again, and you will see it's an entirely different key binds file. (Note the comment at the top, as well.) It looks to me like the file is now generated at a different point than it had been previously, but the original bit of code to generate it didn't get removed from the previous location.
