  1. Your assessment of traders is pretty accurate and years ago if you were to mention such things on the forums, it would garner much hate from the kings of the hill. However, there was a moment in Wurm’s history where such a post was made, exposing the mechanics of the traders, which resulted in many people attempting to exploit them for themselves. At that time a typical trader could potentially net its owner 20s per month or more. I personally knew more than one player who owned several traders and were just raking in the coin. The money that goes to the traders from the kings coffers is split among all the traders, so as more traders popped into existence, each trader received less and less coin. As well, the devs made several changes to the mechanics of the kings coffers to drastically reduce the amount that goes to the traders. They added alternative ways to distribute the money such as the rare coins from foraging or that can drop from mobs. The idea was to spread the wealth among the player base more evenly. This resulted in traders getting so little coin each month that it was not worth the effort to own and pay for a trader deed as the monthly net income would be about 1-2 silvers. I haven’t looked at trader payouts since that era (maybe 3 years ago) but I would suspect that trader payouts most likely have gone up since then as many people would have disbanded their trader deeds or stopped working their traders resulting in the money being split among less traders. It’s hard to say though because there is now a lower population in the game and so less money is going into the system as well. I would like to add that it is nice to see new players experiencing this all for the first time. It reminds me of the excitement I experienced so many years ago trying to figure out this deep, rich game. Good luck to you
  2. Where can I find this list to which you refer? Could you provide a link please?
  3. I am so pleased that the devs have spent the time to implement an option to swap the mouse buttons. However, when you activate this option it also changes which button you need to press when interacting with the UI, such as when you right click an item in your inventory to bring up the menu. My suggestion is to make it so that when you activate this option in the settings, the only thing that gets swapped is the button you need to press in order to look around. Please make it so that you press and hold the right mouse button to look around, but everything else remains the same. (i.e. you still right click to open the right click menu and you still left click to select items in your inventory)
  4. The command for turning wemp plants into wemp fibrr. Cant remember what its called...maybe it’s “crush”
  5. Wurm Devstreams! Can't wait. Maybe let us know what the twitch channel will be so we can hit the follow to get an update when you go live?
  6. I was under the impression that the type of med rug affects the chances of getting a question when meditation on a special tile. I was told that for skill gain, rug type makes no difference. I don't code so can't say one way or the other...but it would be interesting to find out for sure.
  7. Wurm used to have Voip for people in local. It was directional and faded in volume as your distance increased. If memory serves me, Rolf wanted it to be a paid service which, obviously, never flew. It would be nice to get this feature reactivated as I felt it added quite a bit of immersion to the game.
  8. I am really excited for the official dev streams! Still catching up on the VoDs of the practice runs, but they look good so far.
  9. Once you have fasted enough times and all your fat layers are gone, your stamina will not regenerate any longer. At this point you will not be able to perform any actions and you will walk very slowly. The only way to fix that situaltion is to eat food. If, at that point, you have no food available you will find the game pretty much unplayable. I highly recommend that if you plan on testing the limits of fasting, you should have food on hand ready to be eaten once you get to that point. There is another way around it if you follow a deity and have 10 faith. In that case you can sacrifice a rare item to get 99 nutrition and a full food and water bar. Not sure if doing this will give your fat layers back though.
  10. do you recall putting the sign there? Is it possible the sign is actually above ground but appears in your mine? Try putting the sign in your select bar and then going above ground to the tile above the sign and take from there.
  11. Hey I was wondering where on release you are? 

  12. I believe all items become larger when you combine them. Seems like a good one to add to the list
  13. Wow, just wow, Samool. They said you were a wizard! Now Im saying it too. And thanks to the devs working on the server issues and lag. This work is so important and fundamental to the game and it is much appreciated the hard work you guys are doing. It seems this work has unearthed the spider webs under the bed so to speak, and it will be great when everything is all cleaned out.
