  1. Since the anniversary event has just closed, I have seen a number of people questioning the end time, I feel a simple command that returns server time would be beneficial for occasions like this. Something simple like /stime which simply returns a "Server time is HHMM" in events. It would certainly save confusion, and some angst, when events beginning or ending at a certain server time are missed by players who live in different times zones are concerned. Especially since CET is not always the same even in Eurrope, due to some countries using, or not using summer time corrections. Simple to code, simple to use, why not?
  2. Future of Wurm

    Yes, for a while Pristine and Release were a separate cluster from the rest of Freedom Isles, they were eventually connected to the rest of Freedom. At that time Wurm had 2 PvE clusters and 2 PvP clusters. Even Xanadu was a new cluster for a time, during the initial land rush stage, before it to was joined to the rest of Freedom Isles. I'm not convinced that more servers, even as a separate cluster, will revive Wurm, unless the new cluster offers something different to the 3 present gameplay styles Wurm offers, (PvE, PvP and Epic), All the servers Wurm has are thinly populated, and more servers are likely to just exacerbate this as inevitably some of the present players will move to the new servers, I'd certainly feel it important to at least explore these proposed new servers, as is my habit with all the new servers Wurm has begun since I started playing. Even when Release and Pristine were 'cut off' from Freedom I played there on new characters, and I'd certainly do the same if that were to be the case for a new cluster, OK so that might add one or more new alts to Wurm, but that'd put my other main characters into hibernation and maintenance mode, while I concentrated on the new ones, I suspect the same would be true of other players. Meanwhile the older, smaller servers would experience a decline in population. It'd be a gamble whether a new cluster would revive overall player numbers, or if it would simply redistribute the present population.

    Cod to Zenity please.
  4. Poll Wurm Veteran Status

    [23:45:24] You entered through the portal to Wurm on day of Awakening, week 4 of the Raven's starfall, 1018. That's 2505 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes ago. Zenity was my first introduction to Wurm, and has been my Freedom Main since then, despite turning up on Epic as my priest alt. [23:57:44] You entered through the portal to Wurm on day of Awakening, week 4 of the White Shark starfall, 1018. That's 2422 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes ago. Jahpeople isn't quite as old, and was originally made for Exodus opening, but transferred to Epic the day it opened, and has been there pretty much since then, apart from coming to Freedom recently to be an alt/priest for Zenity part time.
  5. WGenerator - Wurm Unlimited Map Generator

    Before running your new map, you must rebuild the databases, this will erase all the databases. Inside your Creative folder there is an sqlite folder, inside that folder you'll find rebuild-dbs.bat, run that before starting your server. It's perhaps wiser to use a copy of the Creative folder to test new maps, rename it to something else, the launcher should be able to find it under that name, (I have about 5 different servers listed on my launcher tab, as well as the Creative and Adventure options), that leaves the creative and adventure folders as a source for the server files, rather than replacing them.
  6. Plans ?

    99 med maul on both clusters would be nice this year.
  7. A Lack of honour and respect

    Way ahead of you here, have already (tastefully) fenced the site in, and added some signage. No, it won't prevent someone determined to remove the Hotas, or break the fences, but it at least serves to imply that the site is at least important enough to fence in. It should at least give anyone else time to contemplate why the colossus and statues are there. I don't want the site artificially protected, I agree with Zeke, that starter deeds, as well as the rest of Epic, home servers or Elevation, should not be subject to artificial protection. With regard to the players involved, I do believe that these statues were just grabbed 'on the run' as it were, that their intent was not malicious, and that if it been the case that the site was fenced in, as it is now, they'd not have bothered, seeing that it was fenced they'd have had time to wonder why, and realise that perhaps they should just leave it and look for easier, and less controversial, loot. Perhaps the fact it did last as long as it did made me, and others, a little complacent, coupled with the previously low population we got lazy, so I hold my hands up to that.
  8. A Lack of honour and respect

    I'd like to draw a line under this incident, I've accepted that the statues were taking in ignorance, and not with malicious intent. As can dimly be seen, the statues have been returned, and are now back much as they were, work will be done on the memorial itself to make it more obvious that it is a memorial, and not just some weird HOTA dispenser Thanks to the honesty of those involved, and the cooperation that is sometimes possible between enemies, this incident can now be regarded as closed.
  9. A Lack of honour and respect

    @nicedreamsThank you for your honesty, I'm prepared to accept the explanation you offer, and will accept your offer of return of the items taken, if you wish to PM me, or Jahpeople to arrange safe passage for the exchange I'm happy to facilitate that.
  10. A Lack of honour and respect

    They know who they are, I don't see the need to name and shame people, it's not as if they'll be selling Hota statues on Epic, and they can't exactly run off with their loot to Freedom. It's not about what was taken, I don't see it as a theft, it's a pvp server, people are able to take items such as this, even when secured, if they are from enemy kingdoms, . No, my point is that this was a senseless act, each of the items was clearly renamed as a tribute to the player the memorial was in honour of, Hota statues are not exactly rare or even very desirable on Epic, they were not locked away behind fences or walls, there was no conquest here, no spoils of war or loot from a dead enemy, they were taken because they were there, with no thought to why they were there, or for teh lulz. I don't want memorials like this protected as |Heritage areas, that's not the point, it's not what I or many on Epic want, or generally approve of, No, for me this is a matter of honour and respect, we don't have to hate our enemies, we don't have to grief their deeds, drop dirt on their fields and slaughter their horses, the memorial was doing nothing other than honouring a player and friend to many on Serenity, ther was no reason to take those statues, other than willful ignorance, or deliberate malice, I prefer to err on the side of ignorance and lack of honour and respect.
  11. A Lack of honour and respect

    I can confirm that no one of the same kingdom can take them, or any other object planted by the same kingdom, even empty bsb's cannot be removed if planted, deeded or undeeded, only enemy kingdom players can.
  12. A Lack of honour and respect

    I'm not proposing restrictions, there are already restrictions on anyone from JK removing planted objects on home servers anyway, which is why I believe it could only have been a group of enemy kingdom players. Deeded, or undeeded, JKH could not have removed them, since they were planted. And as for keeping staff out of this, I'm also a player, I've played on Epic since November 2011, I knew Paul, I planted a HOTA statue as well, but this is not about statues, it's not about memorials, for me it's about the type of mentality that assumes that taking things of no value is somehow something to do with PvP, it's not. I don't want such memorials protected by rules, only by a sense of decency and honour, it seems that this is lacking in the individuals, and the Kingdom they represent.
  13. A Lack of honour and respect

    While I'm sure not everyone will be interested in the goings on of PvP servers such as Serenity, it is with heavy heard, and not a little sadness that I found today that all the HOTA statues left in memory of a Wurm player who was well known and respected on Serenity have been removed by another kingdom. The Paultrw Memorial has stood just north of Strongbox for quite some time now, in memory and respect of Paultrw, Wurm player, JK and all round nice guy, who passed a few years ago. Now I know very well who visited the area recently, And those who took these tokens of respect and memory also know who they are, given the number of statues taken, it could only have been a group, and given that all statues were planted, it could only have been an enemy kingdom. While I'm aware, and accept that on PvP servers items such as these can be taken as prizes, I personally would not have stooped as low as virtual desecration of a memorial of another player, be it same kingdom, or enemy, there are some things I consider beyond the pale in any game, and this sort of behaviour is just the sort of thing that I cannot stomach, nor I suspect is it something any player with the slightest sense of honour and decency will condone. I'm not asking that these items be returned, I doubt those who are so bereft of honour they would do such a thing will feel any pangs of remorse, rather they'll look upon this post as reason to celebrate, to crow and strut that they upset someone who cares about things like this. Yes, I'm deeply annoyed that such things as memorials to players who have passed away can be so easily and thoughtlessly vandalised, for a few HOTA statues that have no value to anyone on Serenity, other than the significance to those who planted them to honour and remember a fallen player. You can't replace things like this, some of those who planted them no longer play, the respect they paid gone now with the messages they left for their friend and fellow player. The Colossus remains, probably because it couldn't be taken, But the respect and honour shown cannot be replaced. Congratulations, you've completely lost any claim to honour and respect your Kingdom could have made, there's no honour to be had in robbing from the dead, only a stain that time will not erase.
  14. Hello good sir!

     

    I'm setting up my own server, and need a map.  I've been trying to use the Wgenerator buddha came out with even had a tech help and it works up to the point I start putting in Tundra.  My ram i'm using is 6144 so more than anyone else says they are using to generate in the forum.  Is that not good enuff for an 8k map?

    Anyways I've seen a lot of you posts and you seem a bit more knowledgeable with map generators.  Is there another Wgenerator you might reccommend?

    Given the minor, but annoying, issues over skill transfers, I'm happy to wait for creature crate until they're right
