  1. Honestly it blows me that you're not being brought in to advise more on how to optimize the servers. Ive seen many posts since this whole AWS thing started where you spoke pretty much against it and it seems those words fell on deaf ears.
  2. Impressive. Next up, Wurm GIS.
  3. Aren't all things Wurm only a feature ... including the bugs? Ever played a game other then Wurm where there was a combat system? If so then you'd understand what players mean by "clunky" when they complain about it. The players that complain about the system largely are also the PvP population. While the PvE needs to be kept in mind, the combat system for PvE isn't bad other then its very hard to get into which might be changing with the update to effective quality levels. PvE combat is really chill. Target, stand, watch the messages, stab, stab, it dies, ride onto the next little monster. Edit: Lord, please dont touch terraforming. It is the one thing about wurm that isn't in need of a rework. Touch terraforming and it better come with an update that says "Wurm has now moved to a modern day game engine" lol
  4. My wurm start was some what like others, not so bad because after the tutorial island I was welcomed by Elwood, MamaD, and PingPong to Ultimarus on Indy. Though every time I did start a new character and tried to just play the game I couldn't do it. This game was so unforgiving with the wildlife, the failure rates, etc. that Im always impressed by the people who managed to stick it out on their own. Village life is definitely the life if a person is going to start out.
  5. In the 10+ years of me being around Wurm Ive only seen advertisement the couple times when Redbaron did it and Wassoo before him. This game has always relied on things like "Hey we made some new shiny stuff that old players might like..." and it spams out a few emails to us old players. Im curious to see how well they handle this second launch of Wurm to Steam. Im sure that company that bought owners share of Wurm wants to get their money back, its evident by the changes that they're about to try and bleed the community (both old and new). So will they throw a decent marketing budget to the steam launch in order to get any sort of ROI, well I sure hope so. A lot of changes, very good ones at that, have gone to the new player experience so I hope like hell they're not banking on just STEAM, steam tools and wishlists being the only marketing tool...
  6. Well ######... Things got real. Congratulations @Samool ... Im very sad to see @Buddawas removed. Though I havent finished going through the pile here to find out if he is still a developer or not, I hope he is; I can understand a product manager role change but he is still a beast developer. As far as the rest of this... Well... I might just have to dust off the old thumb drive with all things wurm on it and play again on these new servers. And @Rolfwell hell... I wondered if you actually had your forum password still or if retro was posting for you. Glad to see you're pulling up a chair again and going to sit down at the desk to bang out some content. Edit: Perhaps for this whole steam thingy.. Yall take a few pages out of Sklo's book They seemed to hit the nail on the head with the new player experience.
  7. Bruh.. That necro though lol. And the fact that the topic is still relevant lol. Honestly I think wurm has seens its end point like someone else has said. It's done and being managed now in capable hands. On to the next project or retire out completely.
  8. First - to hear you're not even prem'd right now is like o.o Second - I agree. This game still has its appeal year after year even if you aren't actively playing. Your disclaimer is spot on. lol Hearing the players experience of the hell hound reminds me of my first time coming into this game. I was wrecked by a freaking troll and spider just venturing away from Ultimarus shortly after Elwood took a buddy of mine and I in. We were instantly picked up by him, then we were instantly destroyed by spiders and trolls when we ventured from safety. We quit. Many... Many... Many... Years later... Im still logging on even if its just to browse the forums or to login my characters to say hi to friends. The new player experience in this game does suck ass but make it past that and well.. See Aums disclaimer. lol So well put Aum.
  9. Been around wurm something like 10 years or more, I dont know - dont keep track. and... Advertising ranks as probably the number one "Soon (tm)" item for this game... I feel like I know players who have done business with me over the years who have spent more money in this game then this company has spent in its advertising budget. Solution is simple.. freaking advertise.
  10. I think memorializing people in Wurm is an amazing idea and I'd personally be in favor of an actual GM-spawned only tombstone be made for this purpose. Player A passes away. Player B reports it - submits with either an obituary from credible source or something of proof (some say this is to far but sorry - to many trolls able to easily abuse otherwise) Player B makes a write up of the players life as they wish - submit for approval as well for appropriateness. GM spawns said tombstone that players can read on. Tombstone now also becomes a "guest book" where players can leave notes. To expand on this - make it a 5x5 thing, couple benches, surrounded by hedges, small pillar on the corners, stone in the middle. - this be a pre-fabbed thing that gm pops down somewhere. Iunno Im just rambling but I think this is an amazing idea because Wurm is well... a lot can be said. Yall know where Im going with this.
  11. It's a red cross made in photoshop with a fancy gradient. Did the Knights Templar threaten to sue TC? lol I'd love to see said "Copyright" that was secured by said "original creator". lol
  12. Well I assure you the game hasnt changed that much since 2016 that the discussion above is no longer relevant. Just follow the advice given above - get newer gen stuff and bam, you're good to go, happy wurming.
  13. I know - the point of bringing it up is see how it was an ADDITION TO not a complete replacement of? That's what fishing should of been.
  14. If you can afford the i7 - get the i7. If you're stretching yourself - dont get it. I5 or I7 - Ive ran MANY wurm accounts on both cpu's just fine. So get whichever you want. Have fun.
  15. Funny you mention that, Runescape mining and smithing rework comes out in 2 days. ? Guess what they did? You can still mine the same, can still smith thousands of pieces if you want to max that way OR you can smith one piece and imp on it over and over again getting better skill. Guess what the player base is doing? We're stupid excited for it. They didn't take anything away they just expanded upon.
