  1. EverWurm Launch

    Have you posted the map yet
  2. According to GM Nicrolis and Lead Forum Moderator Pandalet, it was simply added as a neutral alternative to a "Like", and does not have any overtly negative connotations. People are apparently allowed to interpret it as they please!
  3. On WU, I never gained XP if I did a dish that was way above my skill level. Now I always start out making simple Breakfasts of a single potato in a clay bowl until I get to 10 or 15 HFC, and especially avoid anything more than 25 points above my skill. WU works different than WO but it is the first thing I would check. If you are at 1.00 skill and making fancy meals with multiple ingredients, that could be the issue. Try a test, maybe 5 clay bowls each with a potato or pumpkin. Start small. And check the Lore of each dish with a right-click.
  4. Another thing to note, players on the new server might still play actively but for fewer hours a day. Say initially a lot of them took time off, or just got obsessed/addicted, and logged in 12-16+ hours a day. Now weeks later it may settle down to where they still log in almost every day, but average 3-5 hours a day, and now and then miss a day (gasp). Still a very active playtime, but if you are checking for how many players are logged in at any particular moment, it could look like a dropping in population, when it is actually a similar number of people just not playing as intensively. My own hours I now have slacked off compared to first week, but I still log in nearly every day. But for shorter periods, as there are other things in my life I also tend to give attention to, and it is hard to susutain longterm those first week nonstop play sessions. How many people on the new servers are playing just as many hours today as they did the first week? How many still play daily but for far fewer hours now?

  6. I can confirm this. Had some foals with bad traits penned next to my altar, the bad traits (malformed hindlegs, legs of different length) were not removed. No other altars in the area and my Fo priest gets the message of getting bonuses from the influence of Fo there. This is on Harmony.
  7. I have a question about Holy Crop. I have been gone from WO for a while (playing on WU which is now very outdated). I noticed the wiki has a new addition, among the benefits of Holy Crop was ; "" Instantly casts Genesis on all applicable creatures within the domain of Fo."" Before today's cast. I moved a foal with a bad trait a few tiles from my Fo altar. There are no other altars in the area and I get a bonus on my fo priest there for being in Fo's Influence. After holy Crop was cast I checked the foal again but nothing happened to the fol, it did not get any sort of "instant genesis" and still had malformed hinglegs. What part of the Wiki entry am I not understanding?
  8. OH hey that's Chris the Cole-and-Marmalade guy!! He mentioned he used to make videos for a big cat reserve he worked at
  9. It might (or might not!) work similar to farming, where there are five possible results from tending, from "failure" to "too easy/no skill". Sometimes seems possible to learn more from mistakes than from doing something "riskfree, " though I think you never or rarely gain skill if it is too far above your abilities. So sweet spot usually is "failing sometimes, but not too much and not too little".
  10. I do agree with you that it SEEMS like they are all suddenly eating more lately, though. Usually if some have eaten a tile to dirt, I can feed them one or two .30kg grains and fill them up, lately it has taken me 4-6 for some of them and these are not animals standing on dirt for days, they were ones I had checked just the day before. It's hard though to separate fact from observational error, so we may need some other animal keepers to chip in on whether they believe anything have changed, maybe in their "polling" system or whatever periodically checks an animals status and causes them to eat.
  11. They can ruin newly sown tiles very easily. If possible, try to have areas that are newly sown and other areas that are 2 days or more old, and rotate them over to the "older" tiles. If it is grass, try to keep them on medium-tall-wild and away from "short" especially newly sown. If you are resowing, try to feed the animals to FULL before planting new vegetation, otherwise if they are still hungry from sitting on a dirt pile, they will just devour the new tile too. Potatoes and pumpkins are good for this. I keep mine on farm times but I have medium pens + gates + hitching posts so i can move them around if they start grazing one area too much. You can "place" hitching posts in areas where the tiles are not newly sown (sometimes they seem to graze and adjoining tile instead of the one directly under the post.) I have also seemed to notice they all have increased appetites lately, not just the pregnant moms (who eat like 2x-3x normal) but the foals and non-pregnant animals too.
  12. It's not just in caves, might be more noticable there
  13. I do similar. Get them OUT of inventory immediately, get way more than you need (300 sounds about right since I chuck most under 70Q), put the best in icebox and others in other shelves. While collecting, either use a cart to hold them or dump in a pile on the ground rather than running around with them, then go back and get them indoors with the shortest carry time you can manage. Snowballs on the ground do much better than ones in inventory for even a few minutes, even if the decay does not show immediately. People have been complaining about snowball decay since 2016. See also here. Many many other threads, those are the longer ones.
  14. this one? I would love musical instruments. They were a HUGE part of medieval life. The swedish nyckelharpa would be a worthy addition to the game. Also the ‎Dulcimer, ‎Gittern and ‎Bumbulum. I would vote twice for cow bells. No to bagpipes but omg-yes-yes to vuvuzela and kazoos. And of course the Didjeridoo
  15. I believe you, as this has happened to me but some years ago. I had a foal years ago that was born white, I gave it to someone and I still had events "examine" showing it as white, and listing its parents. Sometime later someone found the same horse abandoned close to my deed, same name, exact same parents (my horses), but it had somehow switched to grey. I went through my logs and I had never had any other foal born to that set of parents except the white one that at some point, switched to grey. No other foal was ever born on my deed with that name. I have also had occasions when a horse switched genders on me at some point; I had records before and after showing the change. I don't know to this day how these things happened. It does not seem to be a common problem. A weird database glitch I guess. They also had a bug two years ago where they accidentally ran a script turning special colored horses back to grey. Hopefully -not- the same issue BUT Wurm tends to sometimes see old bugs resurface. Having your first ebony black foal is such a special thing, I can definitely feel your pain in finally recovering it only to have it now be a rather mundane grey Which server did this happen on? If it happened on one of the new servers, it's doubly painful since ebony blacks are still super super rare there, and would be worth a lot of silvers. especially a 3-speed... oops, 2-speed. * edit: sounds like defiance? I would be rather upset if this was me
  16. This computer doesn't have your regular character simply because you have not played it on that computer before, so there is no character folder for it yet, but the important files are on the server not on the client, and you should be able to simply type in the name (your steam account acts as the "password") You can also make the name show up by creating a new blank folder with the name under \steam\steamapps\common\Wurm Online\gamedata\players but it is a lot easier to just type the name in at the launcher. Type over any name showing there, it won't affect that other character at all, and the other character will still show up in the launcher next time.
  17. is it the same Steam account on both computers, not a steam account belonging to a friend/relative? Have you tried simply typing in the name of your regular character?
  18. Yeah it sounds like your ISP (home internet service provider) updated. The thing is, the wurm devs probably do not know this in advance either, so they can't give a warning. It's the people who run the server machines. You don't need to know the new IP or change the HOST file, if you can pick out a new DNS server from that link (Google's IPv4 number is 8.8.8.8; Cloudflare's is also easy: 1.1.1.1) But then you have to follow the numbered steps above and plug those in as your new DNS server. From then on, it should always keep you updated promptly. If you get lost on the steps above try google's instructions here. You might find that easier to follow, since they just presume you are using their server and you don't have to "choose" anything. Most people get rerouted automatically. When in doubt, doing nothing will always eventually work but it will take some ISPs longer than others. For some, 30 minutes, for others, 30 hours. Most of the people now ingame, did nothing at all special and changed no settings. The only ones who find out the IP address even changed, are the ones with ISPs slow to update. Anyway, glad you are back in now!! Hope all the others are right behind you! Here is a youtube video if those are easier for you to follow (this might be easiest if you are not very confident with 'computer stuff') -- you can skip to the 1:00 mark if you want to skip explanations and get right to the walkthrough: Again, doing nothing and being patient is a valid strategy, if you do not mind coming back to try later in the day. you can also look up past threads on this occurring in Wurm here (yes, it happens periodically)
  19. Sounds like a DNS issue (I just tested and got in ok). Most longtime Wurmians have had this issue before over the years. You can try switching to a different DNS server, some free ones are listed here: https://www.allconnect.com/blog/best-free-dns-servers A DNS issue happens when a host (cloudnet?) changes the server's ip address (in this instance, the numerical address for update.wurmonline.com or whatever they use as patch server) from one set of numbers to another. Most home ISPS pick up on the change very fast and direct you without an issue. But sometimes your home ISP is very slow to update their lookup server, and it can take in some cases many hours to get in. In that case, switching to a different DNS server might land you with one that has a better updated system. There is also sometimes a workaround where you can edit your windows HOST file with notepad to direct connect by the new ips number, but that is NOT RECOMMENDED as some people get confused and can mess up an important system setting (it's not THAT hard but assumes a fairly basic understanding of how to find and edit system files.) It could mean that 3-6 months later, the number changes again but now you are tied to that one edited change UNLESS you can remember months down the line, exactly what you did and how to fix it. Changing your DNS server is much less risky. If the address changes again down the line, the new DNS server should update to change with it. It should work seamlessly down the road. It's possible you may have to try more than one. Check the link above, maybe pick Google's free DNS or any other recommended on the link above, write down the numbers then follow these steps: Windows Example: Changing DNS server settings on Windows 10 Go to the Control Panel. Click Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings. Select the connection for which you want to configure Google Public DNS. For example: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. To change the settings for an Ethernet connection, right-click the Ethernet interface and select Properties. To change the settings for a wireless connection, right-click the Wi-Fi interface and select Properties. Select the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) and then click Properties. Click Advanced and select the DNS tab. Click OK. Select Use the following DNS server addresses. (examples: Google's is 8.8.8.8., Cloudflare is 1.1.1.1. You can try those first if you get confused.) ____________________ Otherwise, you WILL eventually be able to connect without doing anything on your end, but it could take minutes/hours/days, there is no telling. If this is the issue, there is nothing Wurm devs can do about it -- some people's ISP will get in fine, others get in fine in an hour, others may wait a half day or more. I only gave Win10, I think Win7 is identical. Linux people are probably tech savvy enough to find out how to do this, I can look up the mac steps if anyone needs them.
