  1. I'm sorry this happened to you, and I'd like to thank you for sharing your story in the hopes of helping others. The items that have been stolen may end up for sale, so if potential items of yours pop up on the forums you could ask the buyers to check the signature. That way you could narrow down some of the forum alts they're using, and hopefully at least avoid doing business with them.
  2. New players often do things on purpose but without fully understanding the consequences: That's not the result of inattentiveness but rather the effects of being able to do anything in a game with a steep learning curve. For an older player it might be nice to be able to burn birch tools or slap a tent on a wound, but for a newer player there might be value in putting an opt-in checkbox for such actions. A new player has a lot more longterm value from spawning with a tent and a shovel after each death than from being able to slap the tent on a wound one time. (I don't know if tents can in fact still be used on wounds, just using an example of something that used to go sideways a lot right when tents were introduced)
  3. Hahaha nothing quite like scaling the tallest mountain only to be used as a lawn dart
  4. I've no idea, but I am now imagning you being hunted by a dragon and I feel sorry for you but also can't stop laughing
  5. This is absolutely not what he was saying, but rather projection of your own feelings towards how he handles himself. What he said was that he sees what people are saying and doing instead of what they are wanting or thinking. He literally said that he expects to be treated like everyone else: Not that he expects to bend over backwards to please others, which is what you seem to have somehow gotten out of it. That he is "working" on himself is no different to how other people are working on themselves, because everyone has things they need to work on in order to become better at this, that or the other. And none of us were making fun of or reacting saltly to Bloodreina: We were simply pointing out that by not managing her expectations she is setting herself up for failure. You yourself seem to think that "adapting" is a way of compromising who you are, when in reality you can never be 100% your uncensored self and still expect to form meaningful relationships with others. Everyone makes compromises in order to get along better with those around you - Neurotypical and atypical people alike. If you were severly lactose intolerant and insisted on chugging a gallon of milk before entering a room I can guarantee that people would leave the room as soon as you started playing ye ol' butt harmonica, regardless of whether or not you inform people about your diagnosis.
  6. Nice pieces! Your technique is really good, and it's fun that you're doing so many different things
  7. Good luck to you too: I have a feeling you're going to have a hard time finding nice people.
  8. I feel like this might be an Expectation Vs. Reality problem regarding what you imagine an ideal ingame relationship to be like. Some people regularly message everyone on their friendslist while others only message people when they have something they want to ask: Because people are different and treat their ingame relationships according to their own expectations. Perhaps someone in your friendslist would, over time, come to message you in the way you'd want them to - Either because they've gotten to know you well enough to feel comfortable doing so, or because they know you well enough to know that they should do that to meet your needs. No one is wrong in the scenario you described but it is a bit unfair of you to tell people to, and I quote, "start considering if you can't do something more to support Wurm than buy your premium". Buying your premium playtime is literally the only thing you are required to do in order to support the game (apart from following rules and community guidelines). Your need for social interaction is neither the responsibility nor the center of anyone else's gameplay. You need to remember that your needs come first only to you, so not everyone else is constantly considering your needs and wants because everyone else is focused on themselves. One can certainly sympathize with your wish to have more social interaction, but the truth about that is that if you wish to interact more then the ball is in your court. Not everyone has the same drive for social interaction, and some people are even hesitant of messaging others for fear of being annoying. There's a wide variety of reasons why someone might not contact you, ranging from complete disinterest to general indifference.
  9. I like that one that shows up when you've gotten stuck with a ship inside a house, that's my favourite one
  10. Pretty sure this was just a pun
  11. Go big or go home - Cram capybaras into the hamster wheels!
  12. Technically yes, but oftentimes GMs won't respond to cases where intent has to be proven in order for it to be considered griefing. There is a massive grey area where you're not technically breaking the written rules unless you openly state your intention in chat, so as long as you play the ignorance card when questioned about it you'll get away. There are also a vast amount of actions that are skirting the explicit rules (i.e. it's explicitly written that you may not call guards upon animals on a deed you're not part of, but it says nothing explicit about leading hostiles to a tamed animal). So some actions are tough to make case by case calls on because even when there is definite malicious intent behind them it's not covered in the rules section. The ruleset of course has some vague definitions on purpose that gives the GMs leeway to be able to handle cases where people have been creatively mean, but if they responded to all of them it'd be a massive workload.
  13. Haha imagine if teachers kept the kids after they'd accidentally taught them something that wasn't in the curriculum: "This has been refined beyond expectation, it is mine now".
  14. ^This, so much this. We live in a shared world and while people claim that "it's sandbox and I can do whatever I want" it's still a sandbox that we all have to share, which means that when people won't govern their own behaviours there needs to be mechanics put into place to do it for them. It's no more "unfair" that you have to pay for your animal hoarding than it is that weaponsmiths have to repair their weapons to keep them from disappearing. A lot of effort has been put into introducing game mechanics that prevent lag and FPS problems within the game, such as storage containers to reduce the model count and bulk storage bins to prevent the physical item count from rising too high. Not to mention the regular purges of rock shards and dirt piles to counter the lag that miners and diggers caused when grinding, so it's not like breeding is a singled out activity. Breeders aren't the victims of some great injustice. And while items do play a part in lag and FPS drops nothing matters as much to gameplay and general playability as creatures do, since they actually poll the server as well as existing in the form of a model. Hundreds of swords lying in a pile can't even compare to a handful of horses roaming around, so you're absolutely right - You better have a lot of money to spend if you want to keep a crapton of animals, because you'd basically have to cover the costs of all the people quitting if the game reverts to pre-ratio quality of gameplay. (a mild exaggeration to make a point, and the point is that is was really bad) I'm guessing the reason you don't see the point to the ratio is that you didn't play the game before it was introduced, so you don't know how bad it was for all of us who did. No matter how much they optimize the creature code there isn't a single configuration in the world that would save us from the lag and FPS apocalypse that would hit us if all the people who "collect" animals were allowed to do it to their hearts' content. You're far from the only animal hoarder in the game, and I don't blame you for having an ingame hobby that you are passionate about. It's great that you've found a hobby that you enjoy, it really is, and I'm glad for you that you didn't have to experience the gameplay of the post-breeding pre-ratio days.
  15. What recent drama have we missed? Sounds juicy
