  1. That particular dragon was penned in a shallow mine only just above water level, on what used to be Spider Island I think, I penned that one, it actually popped out a few times, but after it messed up the slope of the mine entrance it stayed inside for a long time. At that time I also trapped a few others, the red and white were especially bad for getting out no matter what. Penning dragons in specially made caves with trenches relies on them actually being in an area where that is possible, they do have a range, and will run back if they reach it, it is however a large range, and for a few uniques it's within wall bashing distance of the start deed, strongbox now has a couple of breaches caused by the Kyclops on Serenity. Giving them a short leash, 5-10 tiles would be acceptable in most cases, letting them roam completely free is a bad idea, especially when keeping them away from inhabited areas is actually impossible at present population levels on all servers. The only other option would be inviting freedom players over for hunts, but then we have the issue of having enough gear for hunts, with low population most of us are slowly running out of decent quality weapons and armour as well ...
  2. Testing with two picks, one with bronze rune of libila, 10% higher ql, was giving me 100ql before patch, using the same pick, on the same vein, after the patch I could only mine a maximum of 71.37, which is my numeric skill on Epic, using another pick without the rune I got 91 ql, which is the same as my effective skill. The difference is that a gathering rune, on Epic, seems to ignore the effective skill curve entirely, and caps ore ql at numeric skill. from additional tests on epic I’m convinced that it’s the effective skill component peculiar to Epic that’s not being checked when mining, if using a gathering rune.
  3. Further to this, on Epic, Zenity was using a runed pick, and rune reduces expected ql to the base skill cap, and ignores effective skill completely, using an ordinary pick on the same vein produces the expected skill cap with effective skill taken into account. With 71.31 mining skill and 91 effective skill with a runed pick I mine 71.37ql max, while with an ordinary pick i mine 91ql max.
  4. If we’re getting Mammoths at last, then I demand mammoth riders get the kilts we all know were worn by all true mammoth riders of yore. I meant it, if we don’t get kilts the mammoth riding will be lacklustre and incomplete. So we’re agreed, we must have kilts, with a selection of different tartans to reflect kingdom of course.
  5. Way back when, when rares were first introduced, my first was a rare tree stump, that’s almost certainly the most useless rare there ever was. (It even glowed)...
  6. Nicely signposted, easy to navigate path, honestly not to many mobs on the way up, hopefully I’ll not doze off and sleep through this one like I did for the green...
  7. Ash is already easier to get than it was, with the introduction of the clean action on furnaces, ( forges, ovens, smelters, kilns ), it’s never been easier to get good ash, clean produces 3 ash an action, a regular cleaning of the forge and oven before lighting means I often have a surplus of ash.
  8. Having gotten a rare 5 copper just yesterday on Indy, I can stare quite categorically that kings coffers have not been removed from the game, there is an issue on NFI as far as I’m aware, it’s nothing whatsoever to do with RMT.
  9. Err, Thargoids? They pretty much qualify as aliens, Guardians as well, if they ever turn up, so far only sites where they were tho.
  10. Hi Zenity.... your signature line just introduced me to Sneaker Pimps. 
    so, thanks for that! 


    Have a great day,

  11. Something I’ve always done over the past few years, and I regularly check towers when sailing around coasts I’m less familiar with, just in case any have the coordinates on so I can cross reference with the map and check I am where I think I am. It’s a very useful thing to do, it’s as simple as renaming your tower with you’re coordinates in the name, and I urge all wurmians to do the same wherever possible, knowing where we are is not simple if you’re not decades old and used to the vagaries of wurm navigation.
  12. New: A /balances command has been added. Using /balances in a chat window will display the following balances in your event window: Bank balance Marks balance Rift points if greater than 0 Jackal points if greater than
  13. Well, happy to see the /balances command, far better than directing new players to the nearest deed token to check their bank balances, to be honest this is a command that should have been available long ago, just goes to show, suggestions do get noticed
  14. To put this in perspective, I stumped up for NMS when I had some spare cash to throw at an upcoming game that looked like it might be amazing. At launch, it wasn’t, it had a load of issues, it was not the same as the trailers and demos the layers had seen, but I stuck with it, and over the years it grew into a game that actually surpassed the launch trailers, it’s now pretty much a success story, especially considering the early reviews that followed the pre launch hype. Star Citizen has been in development for longer than NMS, has a larger budget and dev team, and still has nothing that’s truly ready for release, it’s not vapourware, it’s not a scam, it is however costly to invest in a game that has taken so long to get nowhere near the lack of polish NMS had at release. Yes, it shows promise, but it’s already outdated in it’s scope, has competition that has actually released and is still developing and releasing content, so it’s not ready for me to invest in yet. i can get my space simulation fun right now with Elite Dangerous, with it’s 1:1 scale galaxy with more star systems than anyone can possibly visit in their lifetime, or lighten it up with No Man’s Sky and it’s funky coloured backdrops and weird flora and fauna, with it’s 256 galaxies full of procedurally generated systems, or even get into proper space physics with Kerbal Space Program. Star Citizen may be approaching pre beta, but it’s taken so long I’ve frankly lost interest now. Sorry SC, it’s a soft no for me.
  15. @YserinIt would ignore the command line option in steam, since you’re essentially short circuiting the steam client and running the executable directly, so yes, editing the shortcut would have to be done through the shortcut itself. This is one of the reasons why this is not an officially supported method of getting your alt into Wurm at the same time as your main, it’s a workaround for steam’s single client system. @Ephemerali’m not sure why this isn’t working for you, unless there is a problem with the client itself of course, launching via the exe file should be exactly the same as launching it from steam really. I’ve used this same method on WU for years now, since it’s just a tweak of Bdew’s original multi client workaround. Some things to try, as a test, does it work normally if launching from steam? Is it only alts that freeze or is it all attempts to launch the exe? And have you tried verifying the steam files in case it’s actually a corrupted file from an update?
