  1. i can't recall what game for sure, but everquest or asheron's call or another way back then, stated please validate name please. so I put Validate and have used that in all my games since 2001 or 2002 . i know in Darkfall my first pvp game. i used Validate Me as my last name. and my alt was Whykill Me .
  2. i was about to make a post like this asking similar thing. I'm having fun on the new server kinda. at the start i made 5 characters, 4 priests and a main. made a good deed, and placed some more for big plan later. but as as the 2 month prem ran out. i only re activated my new main and FO priest , as i love farming and ranching. want to get to 70 faith to cast on pets. just over 48 now. so i think 2-3 months away without surmons . my main i just build with, and landscape a ton. i started blacksmithing 30 ish now. But after this as my prem is about to run out again this week. i activated my main on xanadu for 3 months, for the xmas gift. I also have the mark points for a 5th large magic chest or 4th trans Rod. my xanadu deed has all ores already and 4 ships worth of crates of resources. a good small deed for low upkeep. thought i'd alt tab the 3 of them to skill gain. did so before the new sleep bonus at least. but now i'm on the fence. i love the new server deed location and it did have a lot of folks in local and in alliance to chat to. but a month has going by i've seen 3-4 people in local. and almost zero allance chat with 20 deeds in it. my xanadu main almost never sees local players either, but the aliance has at least 3-4 on at all times to chat with. my main 43 body str and 35 or 45 mind logic "5 que actions" i miss a ton. plus all my tools. the idea of grinding al over, to one day join servers and just sail over, why would i need the new characters at that point. i also have priests on xanadu. it kinda seems pointless, except to keep farming and ranching and sell for silver upkeep tot the deeds and wait the 1-3 to 5 yrs till we merg servers. Do i keep building the deeds painfully slowly, waste silver on more tools. or just grind my own tools without casts on them. or just pay upkeep for the years and play my xanadu main , grind the skills i dont have high and enjoy the old times. i was about to prepay for 3 months on the new main and priest, as i would be able to buy a large magic chests and Rod to use on new server. but stopped to come read the forums and see if others feel the same way, the new frill is over, and the terrifying skill grinding again is not as welcoming as it seemed a few months ago. i've always been cursed with game jumping and taking breaks. wurm though i always come back to for 3-6 months a year. but already feeling like a break is needed. i love playing games i can alt tab and que actions. i play dual universe and wurm. past 2 months, and summer was satisfactory and wurm. last march wurm and factorio. may-june was just everquest. burn out always sucks. i know my furture plan to to move my xanadu life to harmony . had to vent and post this. not sure if any others in the same boat. stuck between both places. not ready to ripe off one of the bandaids...
  3. alchemy would be nice to have alchemy as part of it.. like making potions that give short duration buffs. like run speed, body strength, 2 months playing on new server and i still cant load creates. would love a potion for a 1-5 minute duration to BS so i could load a few things. all skills could use a small buff some times to make an item your close to being able to make. use potions on a farm field to give an extra yield to it "fertilizer" it shouldn't be easy making these. but fun making like 5 parts to it then add them together. asheron's call on the early days we all had to just find the things and try tons of combinations to make things. like cooking update. i'd like to see that with in 5 yrs. i know i'll still be here... love the plans though. and hope they come fast
  4. i just close the steam bootstrap in task manager, then log in the next use my next steam user account. if you have more then one.
  5. Why?

    clear cutting on deed and perm normal. but to just kill the trees and not turn to logs, is a bit odd. . skill gain guessing. but why not turn to logs too? maybe feud .
  6. if adding highways a few here. partly cateye'd too , hunting for more 800,414 to 804,414 to 804,397 to 807,397 to 807,391 to 809,390 to 809,383 to 806,383 to 806,369
  7. if its at the starter deeds they make it quick .
  8. 3 active merchants now, and 5 more empty stalls for your merchants. slowly growing, nice and close to heartland, accessible by highway just over halfway with cateyes. need 80 more eyes to finish. and easy to sail over too
  9. i just deleted the game data files, and reinstalled from website. no issues after. i find it has trouble installing the new map into the old file and backup, due to my pc copy protect. plus had to log out all cleints to allow updates to work right. dont delete the whole folder as you will loose set. just the large graphic.jar or something file. all i did the past 3 server releases
  10. Andru ya that does seem like griefing to me. deed it or loose rules, still griefing to act like that. one thing about this game as we have had some bad players in the past. once known they get shunned by the community . many of those bad players, i'm sure came back to steam, just to leave bad reviews, as so many of them had less then 5 min game time before reviews. and did not continue. this person will learn or live solo. I hope your able to find a better area, to live. you won't want to be around them. try to ask around who has space for you to live just outside their perm . or on deed for a small home and farm. one way of saving space is 1x1 building then go 6 tiles for your home then 6 tiles for 1x1. OxxxxxHomexxxxxO this will allow others to kill the 1x1 after a certain time. but your home will be safe. the other thing to help more is once skill is up to make QL planks add more planks to your one wall per building. the higher the QL the longer it takes to fall. . making a small deed is best though 11x11 by 15x15 i think is 1s upkeep dont need smaller as its still 1s upkeep . can make money easy in game. planks and bricks and we all hate making mortar. it sells well.
  11. i spent 260 euros last month on this game to prem may new main and 4 alts one per faith and a ton of silver. to deed and start buying things i'm to lazy to do myself. i paid over 30s to other players in the first 2 weeks of harmony helping start the economy. I did deed 4 area, a main deed, a small market deed, that i waited a week to see if anyone would deed the water area by my main deed. and the other 2 deeds. i have huge plans for. being near a starter deed. i also helped build about 300-400 tiles worth of highways for new and old players to use. there was a good amount of time between deeding each deed also. so there was chances for others to deed around me. one could see i have the 4 deeds and only 2 with some development and call me a land hog... but only I know my plans. i dont feel i did this as a land grab. as i will develop the land, been playing 10 yrs. very addicted. but i have run into new players and help them out often. if someone like you were near by i'd even let you toss a home on one of my deeds that i dont plan on working on for a while and let you live there safely. i pay a lot into this game over the years. i cant say how much as if my wife finds out, i'll loose my computer. lol over 3k usd $ . shhh. not that i feel spending money = right to grief anyone ever. but i feel a little offended at first reading the OP post, playing with alts i've done so since 2010. never felt is was wrong until today... but when i saw later you said you started developing the area and they deeded it. that was wrong to me too. but only if you were online enough to be found. before i deeded my last 2 deeds, there were tents. i waited until i saw the tents decay to 90% before deeding. and i left it in the perimeter so they could collect their things if they came back. then i finished expanding. (there is oddly a tent at 100% on one of my deeds i think they put it down at the same time i deeded. was odd, they never logged back on and its still there 100% lol) owning alts and multiple deeds. though , this game gains a lot of money from that. if the devs had a way to pull up how many of us have alts and how much silver sinks in from that. i'd bet 1/4 if not 1/2 the revenue comes for those players and alts. i say this with love, join us and forget about that guy or gal that did that to you. most of us are good and will welcome you to our area. don't give up. I hope you stick with this game. tones of land inland ,can build a well for water. and a ship transport to go to water to sail later on also. plus the new land opening .if your ready to invest in the game. 99% of the player base is a good community and never grief on purpose at least. maybe join a deed for a bit. enjoy the company. lol wow long post sorry.
  12. added more roads my neighbors and I have been working on. Market has 5 ready stalls for merchants , 1 active now with weaponsmithing items. everyone welcome to add your own merchants there
  13. you should be able to take your character, just make a row boat asap . or be near the starter towns they may make a portal again. glad your sticking with it. also try to have forage for cotton asap. you may need to heal while running for new land. but a boat is best bet. if you have time a sail boat will be much faster
  14. lol they wanted to delete someones elses post cus its a bad idea. it wasnt they're own
