  1. If it runs just between two deeds and nowhere else, and the highway technicaly ends off deed, then placing waypoints and catseyes wont help, waystones decay if only connected to one route, so you'd have protection for a while but they would eventually decay.
  2. Patches dont work for steam like they do with WO any update to WU on steam forces an entire redownload of the game, and cause numerous issues as server admins need to update their servers and mods as well as players updating their clients. updates are done in larger chunks in WU simply because it makes it easier for players and server admins to manage, gives modders time to adapt to each update and allows for us to ensure when an update comes, any major bugs that WO encountered with it have been addressed As for the sandstone thing, it's not a bug caused by us, but by third party map generators, our maps adjust fine. Budda threw together a tool that can adjust them, just make sure to follow the instructions and use backups to test before going through with it.
  3. It would be a poor decision to wait to test for any issues until it impacts your play if they happen. Don't have to play it permanently, just try it for a half hour or so.
  4. To show up in the arrows on the waystone make sure Highway routing is enabled on the deed settings: It needs to show in the find route village list
  5. if it's done purely for destruction the GM team may take action against the person who does it. We'll be looking at how the updated ruleset will work as this rolls out. Gm's wont help, this system is to give control back to the players. Once the link is severed the catseyes will take decay hits over a period of time. if it's a reroute, a catseye can be upgraded to a waystone and the reroute done, with one catseye being based on the old link allowing them to decay.
  6. The need for them to be next to each other is so they can link and allow players to find roads to villages
  7. Hi everyone! After a few hiccups we're pleased to see the new huge update live! There's all sorts of things, from highways, to crate racks and new fence types, so let's get to it! But first... Patch Notes Highway update We've been busy setting up all starter towns with the catseyes and waystones. They will extend into the perimeter of all starter deeds allowing you to connect them to your highways. The highway rules will continue to operate for a while, we'll give notice when we begin to phase them out and replace them with the updated ruleset to incorporate catseyes. Map dumps! As promised, we have the new map dumps to coincide with the release of the highway update! The map dumps were taken earlier in August and we're currently looking at adding a new dump type into the roster showing off highways in the next rotation! The folder of all dumps can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6J_aGQ6URL8UURFN2VadWxtSWs Unstable client With todays update the unstable client is very close to launching as the stable client. While we will offer the stable one temporarily as a legacy client, it's really important you test this as soon as possible to avoid any major issues when we switch over. For info on what feedback to leave and how check out this thread here: Blossom voting The blossom starter deed design contest is now open for voting! I think all designs look awesome, and I'm keen to see how wins! check them out and submit your vote here: Battle bards! This week I was shown a little podcast by a group that covers MMO music, and this time they checked out the Wurm Online soundtrack! From Gurubear's quirky songs to the atmospheric soundtracks by Tom E. Morrison, Check out the podcast here: https://biobreak.wordpress.com/2017/08/16/battle-bards-episode-103-wurm-online/ Community content This week the factional fight guys check out one of the surprise additions to this weeks update and talk about how it impacts the game for them, what's your favourite part of this update? That's it from us this week, we'll continue to monitor the update and take any action necessary over the next week. There's plenty more in the works as we've hinted at before. What is it? You'll just have to wait and see... Retrograde & the Wurm team
  8. need client logs too daash!
  9. catseyes dont need GM's to remove them, they can be bashed out
  10. We're nearing the final phases of the 4.0 client as the unstable client, with the shift from unstable to stable occurring very soon in the near future. Before that happens, we want to give you all the opportunity to trial the client and provide any and all feedback on performance you can! When reporting issues, you'll need to provide a few details Computer specs (RAM, Graphics, Processor, Operating system, 32/64 bit) Client logs (this also shows us settings) Screenshots of any visual issues If you do encounter issues, we'll be working on addressing them and may need your help testing them out on our test server too. Remember, this is your last chance to trial the client and provide feedback on issues before it becomes the stable client, and while we will have the current stable client available during a limited time as a legacy client it's better to find out some issues now before they impact play! Get the client here: http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient_unstable.jnlp

Vote for your favourite design and the winner will get to build their design in blossom! The voting will remain open all week, and the winner will be announced in next weeks news, so get voting!
  13. Yeah there will be a period in which both are in effect, to make suire plenty of time is given to those wanting to setup the new highways, we'll give lots of warning
  14. Because that's where kos extends into ,and with a mechanical solution as opposed to a manpower solution it's easier all around. There were still many cases of players using KoS over legitimate highways, and countless issues with griefing. This system replaces that and eliminates possible abuses of the kos system. If you wish to use kos to keep people away, it's as simple as not routing a highway directly on to your deed.
  15. you can destroy the catseyes and remove the tiles. Destroying one removes the links and they decay rather quickly when not complete (green linked)
