  1. Wurm Map Generator FX

    Ah, hoop jumping. We all love to jump through hoops. Thanks again Batta. I might give this a shot. Not saying I'll follow through with all of it. Ima kind of a lazy one.
  2. Wurm Map Generator FX

    I don't see a download link for this. Just the documentation and installation instructions.
  3. There are three mods I've seen on servers. They enable players to build a brick mill, a sawmill and a flour mill. Does anyone know where these can be found?
  4. Yeah. I turned tree spread up as high as it can go so they fill in faster.
  5. Yes I fully understand the server side needs. Did that from the start. I just didn't know the limitations regarding mixed terrain. The screen shots above make it appear more forgiving. Thanks for making this. It's better than vanilla. Perhaps it would have been better to allow server admin to decide cell size. Instead of a constant 16 let them enter a value from 2 to 16. Not everyone has an abacus for a computer. BTW, you might want to add something to the readme about the limitations regarding cells. Here's what it looks like: There's lots and lots of trees between the horse and the forests in the distance. Unfortunately with the 16 cell limit you'll never see them.
  6. Trees in cells? Do you mean all the same type of tree? For instance if an area has pines and walnuts mixed together the server can't determine what tree type to tell the client to display? We mixed them up below a certain altitude. The higher altitude trees are all cedar and they show up very well even off in the very extreme distance. On a side note, even at 1000 tiles I get 50+fps. That surprised me in a good way.
  7. Is there some way to display distant trees with a lower density than is currently needed? This mod looks great when a server has a huge number of trees. But with servers that have lower tree density it is weak.
  8. When using the crop portion of this mod some things are off. For instance we are using a mild setting yet crops that would normally grow well into fall do not. Cool weather crops such as lettuce, onions, garlic, cabbage and peas can grow in the cooler late fall weeks as well as the cooler early spring weeks. Wheat can also grow late fall weeks and in the early spring weeks. It's a grass. Potatoes are a very early spring crop but not a fall crop. Rice grows in Minnesota and starts in the early spring but not in the fall. Again, it's a grass. Pumpkins and tomatoes should be with cotton. They like the heat. Only modern types are cold tolerant. We shouldn't have those in Wurm. So, coldest and cold crops need to be able to start earlier in the spring and grow later into the fall. This is what I suggest: Coldest: Garlic, Onions, Wheat Cold: Peas, Lettuce, Sugar Beets, Potato, Cabbage, Carrots Normal: Barley, Rye, Oats, Reeds, Rice, Strawberries Warm: Wemp, Cucumber Warmest: Cotton, Pumpkin, Tomato, Corn

    Really nice group of people play here. The map has something for everyone. Flat land, bumpy land, high mountains and rivers. The coast is typically the most flat but there are lots of nice spots inland. Several ways to earn coin. If you are looking for a great server you should probably try out this one.
  10. Here's a link for all the info for this map. If you want to change the ores (there are fewer veins than most maps) you can load map_actions into WGenerator v2.9 and wait while the map is built and then edit the ores. Or you can go to the last line of map_actions and change the ores there. Rock is the first number. What ever you add to the ores has to be subtracted from Rock. It's a really neat map.
  11. Nice map, however... Starting characteristics are so low you won't get many people to play, especially at 1x1. There's already a number of well established servers that already do that and unless you boost characteristics it's not going to work IMO. Not enough aggressive mobs to make coin for a deed or get a pelt. In fact not enough mobs period. What is with people and all of the bloody useless fruit trees? Did I say there were not enough creatures? Anyway, I'm probably wrong. Not had me coffee yet. Edit: My hubby was going to play here until he realized dirt goes into his pocket instead of on the ground. For him that is a game breaker. It defies logic he said. Luck to you.
  12. Since WURM is a CPU intensive application this may be important: Huge Intel CPU Bug Allegedly Causes Kernel Memory Vulnerability With Up To 30% Performance Hit In Windows And Linux If the reports are accurate, it appears that Intel might have a pretty severe chip-level security bug on its hands that cannot be simply swatted away with a microcode update. The bug affects all modern Intel processors dating back at least a decade. We should note that squashing the bug requires a patch at the OS level; and Linux patches have already been distributed. Microsoft is expected to address the bug in its monthly Patch Tuesday update. The circumstances surrounding the exploit are currently under embargo, but some details are starting to make their way to the public spotlight. There's one big problem, however. Fixing this vulnerability in software also comes with a big hit on performance. Additional overhead is introduced to maintain a barrier between memory address spaces, which can result in a performance handicap of 30 percent or more. However, recent Intel processors with PCID (Process-Context Identifiers) enabled could have the performance impact lessened somewhat. The hardware bug is apparently severe enough to make it ripe for exploitation, with some of the biggest targets being companies that use virtualized environments. "Urgent development of a software mitigation is being done in the open and recently landed in the Linux kernel, and a similar mitigation began appearing in NT kernels in November," wrote the Python Sweetness blog on Monday. "In the worst case the software fix causes huge slowdowns in typical workloads. "There are hints the attack impacts common virtualization environments including Amazon EC2 and Google Compute Engine." In addition, apparently both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services have scheduled maintenance that will take place over the next week, although there is no detailed explanation for the downtime. However, rampant speculation suggests that the maintenance could be to put the software fixes in place for this specific Intel CPU hardware bug. Literally, in some cases, it appears operating systems will need to be overhauled to deal with the issue. You may have noticed that we haven't mentioned AMD once in this article up to this point. Well, AMD processors aren't affected by the bug due to security protections that the company has in place. This also means that AMD processors shouldn't be affected by any performance hits. Further, AMD"s latest EPYC data center server chips and Ryzen Pro enterprise desktop CPUs have Secure Memory Encryption technology on board, for additional protection against just these sorts of threat vectors. Regardless, given that the patches are currently under embargo and that Intel is understandably staying tight-lipped, it may still be a few days before we are made privy to all pertinent details surrounding the bug and how damaging it will be to existing computing platforms. However, all of this is looking very real at this point. The Linux update detailing its patch has been posted here by Linus Torvalds himself. Update, 10:02 PM - 1/2/18 - Initial performance results on Linux platforms are beginning to surface now on the web. Early numbers are showing IO-intensive workloads are especially sensitive to the Kernel Page Table Isolation patch. Linux performance enthusiast site Phoronix has posted some early benchmark numbers, post-patch. Some results are coming in with a 17 - 18 percent degradation overall. Update, 10:56 PM - 1/2/18 - As it turns out, apparently the Linux patch that is being rolled out is for ALL x86 processors including AMD, and the Linux mainline kernel will treat AMD processors as insecure as well. As a result, AMD CPUs will feel a performance hit as well, though the bug only technically affects Intel CPUs and AMD recommends specifically not to enable the patch for Linux. How Microsoft specifically will address the issue with the Windows operating system remains unclear until the company's formal Patch Tuesday update is made known, hopefully soon.
  13. Setting the boat on fire should warm you nicely. Let's allow that. But seriously, fires were possible on ships at sea in specially made 'pits'. And here's a news flash. They cooked food on ships. So freezing on anything bigger than a sailboat is just silly.
