  1. Update released on 2022-04-02 17:00 GMT (UTC) (or May 2nd, 2021) This weeks updates: Added: A new CE Hwy along the south coast of Samling Fjord, runing west along the coast line from junction of the Samling Pass Tunnel and the Samling Span bridge. A new but short CE Hwy branching off of Great Northern Way, on the north side of the Xanadu deed-township. Two new short CE Hwy sections on the east coast of Indy just north of Mist Lake, including one across the "Frozen Bridge". That is the actual name of the bridge. Modified: The short section of CE Hwy leading to the western entrance of Death Valley Tunnels Hwy (a long time on the map "non CE Hwy" short cut to Crystal Lake was Found DESTROYED (ie removed). Also our Survey Crew found the western tunnel to be no longer accessible to us from either end as there are Locked Mine Doors in place at both ends. The GM who came for a visit was able to determine who destroyed that section of CE Hwy (they will be dealing with this breach of Game Rules) and then gave us permission to repair the damage done. One of the Mayors of an Off Map deed in the area did let us know by PM that another Off Map deed owner was unhappy with the highway name.... ... so we changed the name from Death Valley Tunnels Hwy to Crystal Lake Tunnels Hwy. FYI... Some Historic Info... The above mentioned road-tunnels complex short cut as been on the Indy Community Map since June 26, 2013. https://prnt.sc/SmlRj1zy-MXN See file name-date at top, this is the 1st time this roads-tunnels link appeared on the Indy Community map, back when Mamadarkness was the Keeper of the Indy map. Highway Lighting Etiquette For folks wanting to put street lamps on a CE Hwy with the name of the highway on the street lamps... http://prntscr.com/tzuwtj - large image of the original specifications Zorako and I came up with back in 2016 Finally we added Deeds that are on the Albia Roads Map, that also have "Find by Routing" enabled and removed Deeds that are no longer on the Albia Roads Map of Indy. So you can now use the CE Hwy network to find over 100 deeds, and enjoy "routed directions" from the West end of Samling Fjord in the north west of Indy all the way through to Flint on south end of Elysian Bay, some 7,500 plus tiles away on the south coast of Indy.

  3. Gud'morning Maximusi, Monday, May 1st, 2022 at 14:14 GMT Welcome home..... Wurm's been waiting.... Thank you for advising us that we need to get a Survey Crew to come and visit your area for a geography and roads update visit. As the Warning at the top left of the map states, Due to the dynamic and ever changing nature of a sandbox world, accuracy can not be guaranteed. We do appreciate when the folks of Indy do let us know about changes in their area, as it helps us to keep the map more up to date. As we have been tied up with other matters needing our attention in the past few days, (including more of our on going unpacking after our RL house moving a few months ago), your request to be added made it in before we announce the Cut Off for this week. Thus, at this moment, Skyefox is adding your deed to the Albia Map. At this time we wish to personally thank you for the work you do in maintaining the servers that host Wurm On Line. The average user often does not see or know what goes on behind the scenes to keep something as complex as Wurm on Line, up and running. Wishing you the best, Warmest regards, Hughmongus and Skyefox, Co-Creators and Co-Administrators - The Albia Roads Map of Indy Co-Leaders - The Albia Consortium

  5. sigh - - - and we both so much wanted to make it down.. Apologies to Velvet... RL grabbed us with good weather and spring outside chores that needed a dry day to be done. My apologies for the no show to Blacksmith as promised Velvet. Sorry about that. Warmest regards, Hughmongus
  6. Update released on 2022-04-17 16:00 GMT (UTC) (or Apr 17th, 2021) This weeks updates: Added: New section of CE Hwy on the NE of the Inner Sea from Port of Valyrian to Quincy Mines, which extents the Sevens Bay Hwy all the way long the east coast of the Inner Sea south to past Little Harbor Preserve. South of Black Dog Island, on the west side of Stormie Gardens, a short section of CE Hwy add to complete the northern Portion of Maple Lane through to the BDI Canal Bridge. SW of Harmony Lake, on the north side of Foggy Valley, a new section of CE Hwy added, completing a short cut between to main CE Hwy's in that area. Modified: North coast of Crystal Lake saw a CE Hwy modification near Oak Market, straightening out a zig-zaggy piece of hwy. DESTROYED!!! The Guard Tower I built in Death Valley in an act of Good Will to protect travelers passing through this often mob infested area between the eastern and western tunnels of this long existing Death Valley Tunnels Hwy route between Great South Mountain Road and west coast of Crystal Lake was found DESTROYED four days after I built it. (see previous report). I found this out passing through, coming back from doing a map update survey and was surprised when no guards answered my call for help when a troll attacked me. I also found a major change in that mine doors on the eastern end of the Western tunnel out of that valley were now LOCKED barring travelers from reentering or just entering the tunnel to escape mobs. After I dealt with the troll, I checked the location where I had built the Guard Tower and it was still a few tiles off of the perimeter of the small, undeveloped Off Map deed in that valley, so an educated guess says the deed owner expanded his deed, then bashed the GT and then retracted his deed. What a very unfriendly, un-community minded act, destroying infrastructure that benefits all who regularly use this Tunnel-Road system, which has been on the Indy map since it was first put on the map in June of 2013 by MommaDarkness. I did bring a GM and the GM said after a guided tour of the whole area, that her hands were tied as there nothing the GM"s can do by current rules, about such behavior. Most folks I have spoken to since seem to agreed that this is a very un-community minded and selfish act, and completely childish to destroy a community safety asset. As there is no other way open to the public yet to travel from Great South Mtn Road to the West Crystal Trail.. ...Be Warned... you can travel from West end to East end but only half way when traveling from East to West. You will have to find your own way out of the valley via side roads when traveling west bound.

  11. Update released on 2022-04-03 17:00 GMT (UTC) (or Apr 03rd, 2021) This weeks updates: Added: A new CE Hwy called West Crystal Trail, on west - southwest side and shoreline of Crystal Lake, running southward from UDA Bay at the north end to Avocano Mines on the west side of the Crystal Canal at the south end. Highway naming done in consultation with the "Locals". Special thanks to Gumbo and friends for great engineering work building up the ground on the NE side of Mount Himmelspforte. Named street lamps installed by Teeebomb and Hughmongus so you do not get lost at night. A two new CE Hwy's with named street lamps added onto the eastern and western ends of the Death Valley Tunnels Hwy. The road is a very nice short cut via three tunnels from the junction of West Coast Hwy and Great South Mountain Road east wards to SW shores of Crystal Lake. Thanks to Pruce and friends for the twinning and reinforcing of the western tunnel. Thanks to Gumbo for the short east end highway from West Crystal Trail to the eastern tunnel complex entrance. In consultation with the Locals, we are respecting their wishes that these two CE's Hwys on the eastern and western end of this long established travel route (Death Valley Tunnels Hwy) are NOT to be joined up but that the center part is to be left as a single lane pass through Death Valley. As a gesture of good will, I have built a Guard Tower to help protect travelers passing through Death Valley between the eastern and western tunnel complexes. A new CE Hwy on the east coast of Bearshark Bay, starting at Moonlight Marina and heading north east and north up to the Crystal Canal, where it crosses the canal via a new bridge at the south end of the canal to join up with western part of Diamond Hwy. Also we mapped a series of short CE Highways branching off of this CE highway connecting it into the existing CE Hwy network to the SE of the Crystal Canal, which in turn connect on their north ends to the main east-west trunk of Diamond Highway. Modified: No CE Hwy modifications reported in the past two weeks.
