  1. Yes this Month marks our 5th Anniversary of the bi weekly publication of the Albia Roads Map of Indy. Our thanks to all of our volunteer Surveyor's and contributing Mayor's over the past 5 years, who have helped to make the Albia Maps as accurate as possible. Your efforts are appreciated. Kindest regards, Hughmongus Co-Administrator - The Albia Roads Map of Indy
  2. ..... and we have finalized today's Update of the Albia Roads Map of Indy, (slightly delayed by the 6 hour road trip back from our New RL Home to our Old RL Home for another week at our RL day jobs). So any geography changes and deed addition requests time stamped AFTER 00:01 UTC (GMT) on Sunday, July 25th, 2021 will be added in our next update. Indy is waiting.... Go and explore it ! Cheers!

  4. Update released on 2021-07-11 18:00 GMT (UTC) (or July 11th, 2021) This weeks updates: Nothing submitted in the past 4 weeks, so just an update issue. 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.

  5. I have NO food bowls or troughs or hitching posts in my enchanted grass 2x1 enclosures and I only see trampled enchanted grass about once every six RL months.
  6. We wish to apologize for missing the June 27th, 2021 update but for the past three weekends we have been very busy in RL with the starting of the move to our new home some 5 hours driveway from our current residence. Thus each of the past three weekends we have been hauling car loads of stuff over to our new home, getting the basics set up and putting it's wonderful back yard veggie garden in order. .... So we have finalized tomorrow's Update of the Albia Cats Eyes Highways Map of Indy. So, any additions or deletions to the Cats Eyes Highways Map time stamped AFTER 00:01 UTC (GMT) on Sunday, July 10th, 2021 will be added next update. Indy is waiting.... go and explore it!

  9. Update released on 2021-06-13 16:00 GMT (UTC) (or June 13th, 2021) This weeks updates: Updated: Adjusted Great Northern Way to show the realignment of this highway just west of the Nysa Road Tunnel.

  11. Wow! Thank you for that video Jaz. I did not know it was that bad. Well, the evidence speaks for itself. ... I guess there are Multiple major bugs. Walls are now transparent to a hungry horse wants to eat from a container inside... Gates are now transparent to saddled horses, h-horse or unicorns... I hope the Dev's can fix it soon. Or Better remove the bad code and revert animal behavior to what it has been for the past 14 years. We all appreciate Jaz, your post of the vid as a warning to all, Keep your animals Hitched until the code is fixed or rolled back to when it worked properly. Food for thought, Cheers, Hugh PS: Please do not vent on Demona, the PR Lady, it is not her fault. She just announces the news she is given to put up.
  12. Saddling a horse used to make the horse, hell horse or unicorn stay stationary on the tile where you got off of the horse or you unhitched it from a cart or wagon. From the Wurmpedia page on Saddles, last edited 04-Jan-2021 Notes Equipped on the torso of a mount, a saddle will provide a slight speed bonus to movement and also prevent the animal from roaming. So if Saddles have prevented horses from roaming from when saddles were introduced, gosh knows how many years ago... .... then the recently inserted "new code" has a big Bug if this ability to use a Saddle to prevent a horse from wandering off suddenly no longer works. Thumbs down also to horses eating from containers that are not locked. This means someone can drive their horse and cart or wagon into their building to make a delivery from their cart-wagon into a storage container and could suddenly see the fruits disappearing without warning if the animal feel like eating. Still worse, you may go to access your FSB to get some food to cook a meal and discover the ingredients you want to use are missing because a horse can now eat from an unlocked Container though the wall without you knowing about it. Now if this Bug goes Un-Removed or uncorrected, it means extra work and complexity for everyone. Now we will all now have to make Small Locks and go around Locking any container that may contain something that is food for animals. This Bug means further extra work of setting up permissions for all of these now locked containers... .... which in turns will have a cascading effect of slowing down the game engine as it now has run extra code to check the permissions of every locked container, every time someone wants to access it or every time an animal which is hungry walks past a food bearing container and decides to self serve rather then eating grass growing on the tile it is standing on, which they have done since the founding days of Wurm some 14 years ago. Food for thought and please put an end to this cascading nightmare by reverting horses eating habits back just normal grass grazing.

  13. Update released on 2021-05-30 16:00 GMT (UTC) (or May 30th, 2021) This weeks updates: Added: A new Cats Eyes highway, the Lysa Road Tunnel in northern indy. Our thanks to Champaignedragon and team for the great work there. (post script), the map will be re-updated later today, I forgot to import that new piece of purple highway as I got called in to work for over time and had to leave home in a hurry. 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.

  14. Gud'morning Dev Team, Sunday, May 30th, 2021 at 16:23 GMT One thing that needs looking at is the Removal of Gravity affecting the down hill speed of carts and wagons. Going uphill speed falls back on a 20 slope or higher angle from 15.5kph on the flat to 7.5kph (used to be 16.8 to 8.8 with 5 speeds and high QL 90 WOA h-shoes, but not anymore). Well when you start to Go down hill from a flat you used to accelerate from 16.8 to around 20 plus (more if Lightening burst kicked in). This down hill acceleration to a higher speed now No longer occurs. IF you drive your cart down hill, the cart now holds the speed it is capable of on a flat surface. It is no longer accelerated by Gravity to a higher speed. This removal of the influence of gravity on carts and wagons accelerating to a faster speed when being driven down a slope has taken away from all of us the tactic used by all for the past 10 plus years to escape being over run by mobs. Can this be fixed please, so that gravity can once again will accelerate a cart or wagon being driven down hill to a faster speed? Thank you for your time and trouble, Hughmongus (Wurmian since 2012)
  15. LOL... RL is So unreasonable... interfering with Wurm, keeping you away from that hot data base that needs updating.... When RL threatens to take over just remember "We are Waiting! Wurm is Waiting !!!" Warmest regards, Hughmongus (a fellow Wurm Cartographer over on Indy)
