  1. and PLEASE have a global check box for "receive all".
  2. 70 FS and plate? A baby spider? I'm never leaving my deed, if I ever log in again at all.
  3. Someone give me an idea of how much of a penalty using autofight will be over the new "lots of clicking" system? I've been taking a break from Wurm to give my overused joints a break (getting some Wurm-thritis and my joints hurt) and this is not encouraging.
  4. don't forget lava tiles. It is slow, but useful for lowering metal tools QL.
  5. that is some tiny font there! Had to put glasses on, lol
  6. I find the software sound is pretty bad. Sounds can be super delayed. Sometimes insanely loud for some reason. Lots missing like you mentioned. It is like the original sounds are being converted to text, sent to mars and back, run through google translate, then converted back to audio. That is being kind.
  7. No, this is a very irritating BUG in my opinion. I have no other apps or games that have trouble handing off the sound to whichever sound output is active. Only Wurm. For people with multiple clients a simple task like swapping to headphones is a royal pain in the rear end. This is currently my biggest beef with the game. When I have to relog 10 clients and reconfigure all their windows, just to listen with headphones, it makes me crazy. I often just log out and do something else. I'll slap in inverse Protunia down: +1
  8. Oversix! If you ever get tired of that boat, look me up! Congrats!

    Higher the channel skill on the primary, the more links (just in case someone isn't used to linking). The more links the higher the difficulty to cast, resulting in more failures, so bring some sacrificial stuff just in case

    It sounds like you have plenty of support to do without me present? I already have the journal entries, so will just sit it out to make room.

    I'm on Harmony, but can bring a couple 100 faith priests to join in if you can't drum up local support. How exciting for you on Benediction!
  12. Nobody is gonna out hoard me! Been thinking of setting up an alliance rest stop here one day. 8s
  13. Being able to survive the abuses of our fine community (We really are the best of the MMO communities and I'm dead serious), for so many years says a lot about your character. Most in your role would have run away years ago, puling their hair out. Hey, either you are already hairless or have vastly higher Soul Strength than the rest of us, but you made it through and hopefully without too many scars. Easy to use you as a punching bag and that is half the job description, but I know for a fact that things here have been a helluva lot better with you in this role. You folks remember Rolf and his completely unedited/unreviewed posts? It was like lofting a 300kg flaming bag of fertilizer at the community, back in pre-Retro days. The community was far more violent back then and the Retro years have been a considerable improvement. I do Miss the unfiltered bluntness of the Rolf days, for the entertainment value, but it wasn't what the community needed to stay healthy. May the Wurm be always strong within you!
  14. So what happened to my items that had been stored on 11 merchants for years: merchants quit after 3 months, sent items into mail storage, then I checked mail and the catch up tick happened either moving from merch to mail or mail to my spirit castle? Can this be tracked down as well in the process to make sure someone else doesn't get messed up the same way? Make exiting merchants and exiting mail limbo clear the decay backlog too?
  15. Why not just make the starting bid 1g and do away with the reserve? Never understood that bit.
  16. Just like the title says. Happens to me on Harmony and Pristine. Can't seem to figure out what the glitch is. Just seems entirely random.
  17. Got 2 alts in on Harmony and now can't log in any more, nor to Pristine either... anyone else? Edit: Seems to be fixed now.
  18. 50s I doubt I'll get it, but I was just telling allies that I've never owned a rare boat, even on the old SFI servers.
  19. "Psssst Wurmhole, can you add me too? Here is 1s for your trouble" Yes, good point.
  20. The other thing you could do is create a new deed roles group called "Uniques". In the Uniques role, you have a place to add player names and every player in that role would get double the hide/ scale/blood drop as everyone else in local. This would be something specifically for the system where hide/scale drops are NOT diluted by the number of people in local. This, because sometimes there is absolutely no loot after the kill.
  21. I just held a public Goblin Leader hunt on Harmony and we all had a great time. The loot on corpse was split amongst a select few that were part of the Gang, back when it was captured. If it were a dragon, I promise you, it would not have been made public. Hide/scale drops thinning out as the group gets bigger is the only reason why. Everyone involved wants their set of armor and on the new servers, it will be highly exclusive for a couple years or more. If the hide/scale drops were not diluted, then I would expect to see them all made public - while generally retaining the corpse loot drops for the capturing party. Those loot drops in themselves can be extremely rewarding, since the devs have decided not to include the non-tomes in the Marks store. However, they basically only matter to PvP, so not of particular interest to the majority of Wurmians, other than the resale value for a big payday. Silvers are great, but the vast majority of players aren't here to earn silvers. They are here to make a lasting impression on a virtual world. I think of everything mentioned in this thread, just simply making hide/scale drops a fixed amount for any players in local would be the quickest and best fix of the system. If I penned a dragon and the hide were a fixed drop like bloods, I would be thrilled to invite the world to come collect. If I get a dragon corpse for my graveyard or a rare bone as a direct reward for my efforts, cost of penning, etc, that is more than enough. Honestly, the thanks that flood the chat channels are more valuable than any of that. But, until we all have several sets of scale/hide armor for all our favorite alts, not much chance of holding public slayings of Dragons. +1 to fix this. I've always been in favor of changing the Unique game and although it has made some great steps along the way, one more big step is needed - Fixed scale/hide for all in local.
  22. I am sure this is what happened to my moon lumps that I had stored on merchants for years and when the merchants expired, all went into the mail system, where the accumulated decay kicked in and nearly destroyed all of them. I just got the cold shoulder when I brought it up on forums. Cost me a small fortune and now I refuse to ever spend money on merchant contract again.
  23. My wife likes gadgets more than flowers, so an appropriate gift for her would be a spyglass! Edit: I mean for me really, since she has never played Wurm
  24. Ok, the ones currently in the game are not Fo, Mag, Lib or Vynora based are they? It is like having a statue of a TV in the game. Does not belong. (responding to Dathius post)
  25. How about we have other choices that look less religious? Certain religious symbols can bring a lot negative feelings into the game. Let's not have them? Also, maybe add more variety. Size, shape, stone material. I come here to escape from a place that is hyper polarized by religious zealots and hate. I don't want to be reminded of it in the game - but graveyards are super cool and could use some love. Also, how about Loading and unloading grave markers, once planted?
