  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my post in such great depth! I have been doing a lot of research since my pc died and ended up feeling completely confused as I am unfortunately not very tech saavy and things have progressed so much since I got my last desktop nearly a decade ago. I am so grateful for your suggestions, and touched by your thoughtfulness in keeping my unique situation in mind! I will definitely give these all a look, and try to decide which option would be most suitable. I can't thank you enough for the advice!
  2. My Asus Essentio died a few months ago and am in need of recommendations for a new desktop. My Asus overheated while playing Wurm so am looking for a pc that has a decent cooling system. My budget is $1000 max, preferably less as I will also need to buy a new monitor. My mother is the one buying the pc for me (bday gift), so I would prefer the desktop not have "gaming" in the title as she thinks it is for business purposes. I was just going to buy another Asus Essentio but they no longer make them sadly. Was looking at Dell G5, and a few from Acer but not sure if they would overheat. Would prefer dedicated graphics if possible.
  3. Thank you so much! I'm most grateful for your help and for this wonderful mod:)
  4. What would make one get cold outside during the day in summer when it's not raining? I'm currently in the south of my map
  5. This map is outstanding! I tried nearly every other map before settling on this one. Thank you so much!
  6. For some reason the Trader is not showing personal buyer contract as available for purchase. I'm playing on Adventure offline server. Not sure what I may have done wrong. I have the most updated version of both Mod Launcher and the Buyer mod., and I ran patcher.bat after installing the mods. I uploaded a picture of my file structure (EDIT: Issue resolved, I had to run the WurmServertLauncher-patched app to get it to show up)

    So true. I know many are turned off by the graphics alone which is so sad. They have no clue what they're missing. The depth of this game is amazing. I've barely even scratched the surface and have been playing for over 1200 hours
  8. I found that certain WU servers (even low population ones) can actually feel more active than WO. I spent my first few days in WO and didn't see anyone in local, but when i switched to WU (a 1x1x roleplay server), the players were so active in chat that it felt much more populated than my experience on a much larger server in WO. I do enjoy how a smaller map lends itself to a feeling of being in a close knit community.
  9. I started out in WO, but decided to switch to WU because I couldn't afford to pay a monthly sub, and because I wanted to be able to make money by doing things I enjoy instead of just making bricks or digging dirt. A large majority of players in WO have already leveled up their skills so are not interested in purchasing items from new players since they would be of low quality. I also really enjoy the camaraderie that comes when all players are starting out on a pristine new server together. That is such a fun and fulfilling experience. It's also important for me to be able to make money doing what i truly love, instead of spending weeks grinding for a living doing tedious things like digging. There are so many more opportunities to earn a living in WU.
  10. I was inspired to try Wurm after watching one of Malena's videos as well. The old tutorial was daunting, however, and I gave up midway through. I decided to give it another try a year later, and am so glad I did as it has become my all time favorite game.

    One reason i chose to switch to Wurm Unlimited was because it is a lot more enjoyable to play on a server where everyone is starting out on the same level. I enjoy being able to make money doing things I enjoy, and if I were to play on a server where most people have already leveled their skills, then I would be stuck grinding bricks or something to make a living, and that would take away from the roleplay for me personally and the whole reason I play Wurm, which is to just live a natural life caring for my farm and animals, cooking, hunting a bit, etc..
  12. I am using a custom map (Alaron), and sharks are spawning in land, while land animals are spawning in water. I tried running rebuild-dbs.bat in sqlite folder to no avail. Any idea how to resolve this issue?
  13. I just completed the tutorial and I must say it is a huge improvement to the previous one! The deed itself is gorgeous, and I love the idea of encouraging new players to stay in the area for a bit to craft and build, etc. I am such a huge fan of this game, and am constantly recommending it to everyone I meet. I am so thrilled that we have a new tutorial, as it will be new players first impression of Wurm. The landscape and builds are so lovely it will definitely encourage both old and new players to spend time in the area. Looking at the tutorial through newbie eyes, a few things came to mind that newer players might find a bit confusing. Please keep in mind that I am a slow learner, so most of these issues are probably intuitive to most new players. I did the tutorial at night, and it was so dark I had trouble seeing. Some lighting would be a huge help. When it said to dig dirt, I couldn't see where dirt was, and ran around looking for dirt for a while. I saw grass but no dirt. When I finally came up on the digging area, I was confused because there was sand beyond the gate, not dirt. When it came to the Woodcutting part of the tutorial, I chopped a tree but the tree was too young so it just gave one walnut log instead of a felled tree, so I couldn't make logs. I knew to cut a second tree but newbies would be confused by this. Because it was night time, it was quite hard to see what was on the ground. I had a difficult time locating the log I chopped in the dark, especially with many stumps, felled trees and piles of logs everywhere. When I tried to make kindling, I think I got "useless" four times, might be helpful to tell players to keep trying if they fail initially, and that at low skill level it takes more than one try to create kindling. Otherwise they might think they are doing something wrong. I had a hard time locating the mining area. Signs would be most helpful, as would lights. When I tried to mine iron, it told me "This is protected by the gods", which was confusing. I did end up finding a mine-able vein but new players might be confused. It might be helpful to explain how to mine (activate pickaxe then right click the iron vein and select Mine) since most newbies will probably forget how to mine once they finally make it to the iron vein. Lastly, the tutorial windows that popped up would overlap each other, and I wasn't sure how to move them as a newbie (click and drag to move seems obvious, but it wasn't to me as a new player). Not sure if there is a way to prevent this overlap or not. All in all, the entire experience was a hundred times better than the previous tutorial - and I am very excited at the thought of it being the entry point for new players. Thank you to everyone who put the time and energy into revamping the tutorial and creating this beautiful deed!
  14. Subnautica is an amazing game but I have such a fear of deep, dark water that I couldn't even play it without experiencing intense anxiety lol. Highly recommend it for those who do not have Thalassophobia
  15. I just started playing on this server and am having a blast so far! The map is huge, and the landscape is really beautiful with many amazing places to settle down. I'm so excited to be able to be a part of the server from the very beginning. It's a very unique experience, and one I know I will cherish forever. Taking lots of screenshots so I won't forget what it looked like in its pristine state:)
