  1. Sheepdogs

    I love this idea for breaking up herds!! In my WU game I have a couple dogs with my cattle even though they don't actually do anything lol. It would be great if dogs could actually have a purpose!
  2. New tile - Meadow

    +1!! Not only would this be nice for deeds, but it would also be so refreshing to travel the world and not have every square inch of it covered in trees. I love trees and I love forests, but what I wouldn't do for some more variety in the landscapes of Wurm! ♥ Proper biomes are something I dream of, but I don't really see how they could add them into current servers. Imagine if suddenly your deed became an icy arctic tundra!
  3. Sounds of Wurm Online

    Big +1 for sound update! I play with sounds on but sometimes they just aren't enough or don't feel quite right. So I'll turn on ambient farm or forest sounds! I don't know that much can be done for the weird cadence of hitched animals since they run at different speeds from one another. So one horse might be trotting while the other is galloping which doesn't really make sense and results in a really odd sound. Maybe the sound should be based on the speed at which the cart is traveling rather than the horses themselves?
  4. I'm happy to hear advertising is being worked on! When I found out about Wurm it was because I (at the time) ran a gaming blog and had kept a close watch on gaming news. February of 2014 there was an article about Wurm being hit by a DDoS attack. It looked unique and fascinating so I downloaded it that day and fell utterly in love. This may not be the way they hoped to find a new player, but hey, all news is good news I guess? I love what the team has done with the Valrei Entertainment Network, but I'd like to suggest reaching out to other streamers as well about the game. I'm not a Wurm streamer, it's not what people come to my channel for. But every time I do play it, people usually seem interested and curious. They've often never heard of it, nor anything like it. I've even had several viewers start playing on the WU server I'm on. Which brings us to my biggest hurdle with this game: I love it, I adore it to pieces and it's my favorite game to just relax and listen to a podcast or chill after a rough week. But I cannot play it everyday. I can't always play it every week. I'm busy and have a mountain of things on my plate and though I miss WO enormously, I can't justify the price of premium for a single character and my deed when I know I can't play as much as I did when I first started. I don't think that the only people playing Wurm has to be a super dedicated niche of players who can devote a ton of time to it. Every game has both hardcore and casual players. If there can be a way to entice that group of people to play WO instead of, or in addition to, WU, I think a lot more people would be willing to stay. I love my WU server and the people in it, but the thing I miss the most about WO are the friends I had there. This game has a really special community and has continued to be friendliest bunch I've ever played with. So I guess my biggest recommendations would be: give a month of premium in WO to everyone who purchases WU, reach out to streamers/writers/youtubers/podcasters, etc who are known for playing other, similar games. Maybe give them a month of free premium too and some silver to buy a deed and really show their viewers what the game can be like. You could even put them in contact with a VEN member to guide them through the early stages. And lastly, consider finding a way to let both casual and dedicated players coexist. (Without requiring the less active players to have to live with friends. Part of the charm of Wurm is carving out your own place in the wilderness! :D)
  5. Non-Preme Skill Progression

    As someone who has had to take breaks from this game on occasion for financial reasons (such as right now) I would honestly really love something like this, but only if I wasn't capped at 20. If I kept the skills I had but continued to progress incredibly slowly I would have incentive to, at the very least, keep paying the upkeep on a deed. That said, I can see where this would become an issue once a character is maxed out, or even just at a level where life isn't as miserable (actions don't fail as often, etc). If skills are high enough to get by, what incentive would there be to keep premium?
  6. Love in Wurm

    I actually really like this idea! I can see how some would be opposed to it since it goes against the notion that nearly every person you see is an actual player, but at it's core it's not really any different than raising an animal (which, honestly, I'd love to see the ability to train their stats too lol.) Such an interesting perspective that I've never thought about for Wurm.
  7. Brick ovens, forges, and fireplaces

    This sounds great!
  8. Birth Notices

    Awwww! This is so sweet! +1
  9. Malena I love this!!! Huge +1!!! This is the one thing I've wanted pretty much from the start and I'm so happy to see you come up with a solution that would allow for a player to still get their favorite color in whichever breed they are most interested in. I just love the idea of using draft horses for my cart, Arabians for long distance, speedy travel, and a warm blooded breed for hunting. Such a fun new aspect of the game to think about!

  14. Getting Started--Occupations

    This was one of the few games I was able to get the name Raeyn so I was pretty excited about that! My motivation behind the occupation thing was less to do with making money and more to do with character development, if that makes sense. Whether I roleplay or not I always like to have a fairly decent understanding of the character I am in every game I play. So I was more interested in what roles could possibly need filled and then go from there to shape the character. As for a home we are getting settled in at the Garden of Shadows, so that's taken care of at least!
  15. Getting Started--Occupations

    Thanks so much for all of your feedback! I have a couple concerns though. For one we both tend to play a lot of games and we rarely play one exclusively. So I would be worried that our animals/farm would die as I just don't think we would log in every single day. Heck, sometimes I'll go weeks without playing WoW because I'm really absorbed by something else (like I currently am with Wurm). I've also run into so many farms that I thought the market was pretty well saturated, but if not perhaps we'll give it a go anyway! That could be fun. I really liked the idea of doing something kind of commodity based. For instance, things people don't necessarily need but would like to have and never get around to making on their own. Cosmetic touches I suppose, but I don't know if there's any sort of market for that. As for joining a village my concern is along the same lines as raising animals. I don't want the village mayors to feel like we're just leeching. We definitely want to find our own piece of the world, and while having close ties to villages might be great, I'm just not sure how much we can offer them (what with focusing on our own land and not logging in every day.) I hope all of that makes sense, and thank you again!
