  1. My alliance and the friends I've made there. I've been here for 7 1/2 years, and honestly probably would have been gone after like 2 months if my neighbor hadn't invited me to an alliance...which lead to me meeting more people...and on and on. Without a connection to the community there's no way I would have stayed around.
  2. I miss the old fishing system. Nothing like taking a break from grinding and do a little bit of fishing.
  3. Shot in the dark, but the nick name of a character form a manga called Yuri Yuri.
  4. Take any skill. If you had a 70 skilled blacksmith or 90 skilled blacksmith imp a tool to 70, the cost is the same. The price is always tied to the person that can do it in the fewest actions. That's...how economies work in game and in real life. You're looking at it as an employee. You have to look it as what each Wurmian is--a company. If someone managed to produce cars at 1/100th of the cost they are today with 1/100th the labor, guess what? Car prices would fall. If everyone was able to produce cars cheaply then the entire market (as it has in Wurm) would fall. That's just shifting right along the supply curve. Anyway, it looks like you have serious problems that need to get worked out. I wish you the best. On a side note, I think account selling is probably one of the big evils in the economy but God knows how we're going to slay that dragon.
  5. You're not making sense. If I was harvesting 1000 crops per a harvest the price would be adjusted for that. You're not being nerfed. You're competing with others. If everyone on the server was only getting 3 crops per a tile, guess what, prices for crops are going to sky rocket. You'd probably expect 2-3s/1k. But you're competing with a person that can get at least 6 crop for 3 actions. Anyway, I'm not going to waste my time trying to debate on what an action should or should not be with you. I just pointed out a couple of your errors in your previous post.
  6. Just wanted to touch on this...if I just harvest/sow I get 6 crops. That's 2 actions. I have to recoup one crop for seeding, so that's a net game of 5 crops. 5 crops for 2 actions, that's 2.5 crops an action. At 50c/1000, that's 50c/400 actions or 12.5 iron/action. Coming out ahead of minimum wage. You multiplied it by 100. 15 actions is 1.5 copper.
  7. I ground it to 90 when Pristine and Release were cordoned off...second 90 skill I got, I think. Those were the days. 70ql weapons went for 1s and 90ql 3s. At this point with prices being so low it isnt worth the time investment to sell stuff. But if you're grinding to help your friends and for the sense of accomplishment then go for it!
  8. Chance of this happening are .134%. Or about 1/740 chance. Not likely...but not *that* unlikely given hundreds of thousands of actions.
  9. He edited his comment to put a 200 hour limit on this overpowered server. This makes no sense at all. This would probably be counterproductive. You get a "large" influx of new players that start playing because the game is "easy". Then you do the old bait and switch and they're playing a "hard" game. They rage at how slow the game is and tell all their friends how awful the game is. Yeah. Sounds great.
  10. I'd support loading. Leading a horse is already a pain...God knows what would happen if the towed boat gets stuck on some sandbar somewhere.
  11. Uh, what? 3x skill gain, free to play, and can transfer to normal servers? What sort of delusional nonsense is this?
  12. As long as it couldnt roll into any moon metals.
  13. Iron weathers a lot faster than silver from my quick Googling. Silver tarnishes the outside but iron will rust all the way through* and will crumble much faster. *depends on the iron but probably the iron we use probably doesnt qualify. Maybe iron is better to resist bashing but lose strength faster from decay.
  14. I'll take the trowel. Send to Hailene, please.
  15. I only got to 80, but avergaing out the tick rate, 50% seems about right to me. Not sure how much the tick rate decreased as you near 90.
  16. Guaranteed ticks with half the tick size. Every one saves their sanity.
  17. Maybe add a cap to it. Like the bonus cant exceed double of what it would be normally. So a one year fred would have 1.2% a bonus and with more tokens (I havent done archeology so I don't know a reasonable number of unique settlement tokens) it could reach 2.4%. Keep any hard cap on total productivity the same.
  18. I wouldn't mind having a couple dedicated items for bashing things. Keep them as WS.
  19. I feel like this is just perpetuating the pain. You know what's worse than trying to make parts for a large cart on your first day (like I did?) Trying to make a large cart on your first day with mostly 1 QL parts. Might just be better to just increase the base chance of super basic items--nails and planks, for example--though I'm not sure if that'd affect the bulk market. Though if people are spamming stuff on free accounts, I'd think they'd be getting to at least 20 blacksmithing on'em?
  20. What do you mean half a fail tick is given?
  21. Fully aware. But it's a pain in the butt to drag crops into it every 6-7 tiles.
  22. So normally when you harvest a crop tile you'll get 8 individual pieces of corn, right? If you're harvesting hundreds of fields it gets tedious having to drop the crops into a container. My suggestion would have all the corn combined into a single item equivalent in weight to all 8 corn. This would make harvesting large fields much less troublesome. Some other points: 1. When dropped into a FSB and withdrawn again, the crops will come back at their individual size. So if you didn't want to have an enormous corn dinner, you can drop it in a FSB and get 8 pieces of .1kg corn out. Much like meat. 2. When using it to reseed a field with a combined crop, you'll only use the weight of 1 regular crop. If you have less than a full crop's worth of weight, you can't reseed. 3. I hope saccing won't be affected. I assume that a corn item 8x as big will be worth 8x as much favor? If not, is there a way to make sure it is? 4. For mission saccing, it'll take into account the weight, rounded down. I think that ought to cover it. What do you guys think?
  23. Tamat, we need your random URL links from hell. Plus Gold (and her sisters Silver and Electrum) will miss you dearly.
  24. People would just afk sail for a few hours on Xanadu. No thanks. -1.
  25. Get to work. We need more blood! Vynora needs some more sacrifices.
