    Thanks again for the Journals and the imping service on my rare studded cap! Excellent work!

  3. Why nobody pvps in wurm.

    Stay with me here… I will state up front that I personally do not care for PVP, I don’t like what it does to me personally and as a rule I do not PVP in any game anymore. That’s not to say that I do not care about PVP. It’s a key mechanic of this game and everyone likes to draw that line in the sand. (Full Disclosure: I gave up PVP in all forms when I left Eve Online and do not wish to relive that stress and paranoia anymore.) I will not offer any opinions of who is right or who is wrong, but I will say that people must respect everyone's personal choices and figure out a way to do more battle in game rather than a forum. What I do want to see is this game continue to grow and thrive no matter where in the WO universe you wish to reside. You must realize that the 2 "sides" are codependent on each other. All anyone wants to do is continue to fuel division. I hear enough of divisive crap on a daily basis from the news media. I have read and heard so many good suggestions on how to change/enhance game mechanics, but they are scattered all over the place. I never see a clear and concise way of communicating these ideas without the post getting off topic. Keeping track of what’s going on in this forum is like drinking from a fire hose. Has anyone considered Player Advisory Boards? Has there ever been a structured method of providing player input in a “forum” (not this forum) that includes volunteer players and WO staff? These forum posts that turn into full scale feuds have got to be demoralizing to the staff and when I see proposed changes that are met with pitchforks and torches…there’s a problem. Lets also not forget that there is a 3rd "side" to this game that exists in that misty haze between PVE and PVP, Priests. (You're welcome @Etherdrifter) They have a niche all by themselves and could use a "Ministry of Magic" to help shape the future of magic users. Get them together in a "room" and effect positive change and I may consider priesting my main
  4. Patch Notes 7/SEPT/17

    The low quality large nails was the culprit, thanks again Retro!
  5. Patch Notes 7/SEPT/17

    Thanks Retro, I will check the components. I assumed it was related to skill level but never assume in Wurm
  6. Patch Notes 7/SEPT/17

    Great addition but I do not think the above is quite right. I have 57.33 FC skill and can only make the "rack for empty bsb". Bulk Container Unit is red.

    Well done Fraeya
  8. Wurm Online thoughts about where it's headed

    @MrGARY thank you for putting into words the nagging feeling that Wurm gives me. I love this stupid game but its too hard to take a decent break or even go away for vacation for a week without thinking of all the chores that will be waiting. When we come home from vacation, there are plenty of chores to do irl like cut the grass, laundry, etc. I shouldn't have to log on to Wurm and do the same in a virtual environment. Its hard to walk away from something that you have devoted so much time and funds into making that brings you joy. I feel as though I cannot leave this game without disappointment. I know its not fair to compare Wurm to other games, however, other games handle the "breaks" much better. On some mobile games, there are options to enter "vacation modes" where your game is put into stasis. In Wurm, I also can not rely on storing certain items in inventory without risk of decay. Give me an option, perhaps once or twice a year, to put my deed into "vacation mode". No deed upkeep is lost, no deed decay, no tree growth and animals remain healthy. Vacation mode ends when I log back on. Perhaps limiting it to 30 days maximum with minimum 90 days between breaks otherwise I can see some ways to abuse this. Give me a bloody chance to walk away from this game when I need to. If I stay away too long, like many players, I may not want to log on and "start over" again after everything I built, owned or otherwise is gone. The game gives me no choice but to maintain and pay if I want to have a long term experience with a healthy balance of life away from the game. I cant see someone like myself returning after a year absence.
  9. More lairs!

    You could take that a step further and have a random "Den Mother" spawn as you bash the lair. Something along the lines of a Champion with a bit of extra health but not inst-wipe the party doing the bashing. Might be fun for new players clearing a den for their deed to see a bit of "excitement" with some help from the locals in their vicinity. No unique loot, do not want this to become another unique hunt. No Champ title on the den mother, again, becomes another unique hunt. Maybe a title for the bashers...Brood Warrior or something along those lines. Increase spawn rate of mobs while bashing...you are trying to knock down their home after all...

  12. Icebox is defective, I want a refund

    I agree, no need to stockpile food. I dont think the mechanic was broken in any way and since we are used to the food decay...leave it alone. Now that deed decay mechanics have shifted in our favor slightly we have more time to experiment and cook different foods. The Picnic Basket is "okay" food decay seems normal inside barrels stored on carts/wagons. Food items on Merchants...not really needed imo but keep trying. Glasshollow doesn't need to turn into Wal-Mart just yet. The new cooking update is encouraging more skill use (pottery, papyrus, etc) and thus more variety and challenges for folks (dare I say, interest in playing again?). Cooking should remain more "personal" rather than commercial.
  13. Icebox is defective, I want a refund

    Back in the old days...you went to a frozen lake with a saw and carved out a big chunk of ice for your ice box. Activate Saw>Right Click Shoreline (in winter)>Harvest Ice. Done. Using snow for an icebox made me literally laugh (sorry devs, its a good start however). Snow is a horribly inefficient source of cooling even if you pack the snow. Here is a little history on the Ice Trade and how ice was stored, and ultimately shipped, all over the world no matter the season. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_trade Harvesting an ice block and allowing the addition of thatch to insulate and we should have a larder that would have enough cooling effect to last a season. No one is looking for zero decay, I understand that full well looking in my own refrigerator.

    That makes more sense, thanks for that change. Though I will miss my pocket singularity devouring mass far beyond its volume. Excellent!
  15. Farming on Xanadu is broken

    I hear what you are saying but we are not hovering over our crops for a week cheering them on. Cursing at them, maybe but checking them daily. A new update with new crops was released and we are providing feedback based on our previous experience with growing crops. I will always entertain the caveat that we do not know what to expect from the new crops, my observations were on the "legacy" crops that I planted when I realized I was low on certain items via cooking update. As of this writing, I have harvested "legacy crops" from 12 of 100 tiles planted Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. The majority are in "halfway" status. So my best estimates are 10-14 days is the new "normal" not 3-5 days? Food for thought: I cant tell you how many times I have asked IT guys when something breaks, "What changed?". No matter how many times I asked I got the same "Nothing changed" response. When we went back and looked together, guess what we found? A change! The moral of my story is, ask again and ask for data to back that up. Also, I am also willing to test this in further depth should the developers wish it. (Time stamps, crop type, daily tending, on deed and off, etc.) I'm not going to complain and not offer to help fix a problem. Respectfully, Weatherwax
