  1. When normal draft traits add speed, but the (really) rare traits do not, I return to my original question: Is this intended? I must be surrounded by more min-maxers than you. Everyone gladly takes the mules off me to upgrade from bison/horses.
  2. I appreciate the answer but I am not sure I agree with your observations. I breed mules and I do not see how they take more work than horses. Definitely not in the long run. Breeders could still sell sterile mules if they were just as fast as horses. But a 4 draft trait mule without a rare trait being faster than a 5 draft trait horse with a rare trait, that seems weirdly balanced to me. Imagine showing someone all your beautiful and strong ebony, blood bay and appaloosa draft horses and then telling them "But we don't use these, our real champs are over there" and then you point at the tiny mules who all share the same grey texture. They would think you are joking, wouldn't they? That is how I feel about the situation.
  3. I mentioned this before, but it still on my mind. Why again are mules better at dragging carts than horses? I have a 5draft ebony horse that goes unused because 4draft mules are faster. Is that really intended?
  4. I too have been getting plenty of offspring where misc becomes the dominant trait. If they ever made it so that each misc traits adds a 5% extra chance for traits to be active at any given moment, then it would reward high AH skill without unbalancing the status quo in any major way.
  5. The breeding timer in the "inspect animal" window still displays random numbers.
  6. Is it intended that mules are faster than draft horses? Seems a bit unfortunate to me, since mules come in just one color. This would effectively reduce diversity. Of course changing it now would screw over the people who invested time in draft donkeys.
  7. They must still be in shock that we didn't all discuss what VR headset to buy after receiving the grand news.
  8. I would kill a random member of my alliance for that.
  9. Will the "time until being able to breed" timer be fixed in the next patch? Would be really helpful, right now it seems to be displaying random numbers.
  10. Same here, stuck at "connecting to server". Validating files did nothing.
  11. Darnok, your vision is really wasted on all this minutiae. You are clearly ready for your own kickstarter project. I sense a Chris Roberts 2.0 in you.
  12. Hooray indeed! Parents were both 4Drafts. First rare trait bison in roughly 150 attempts.
  13. That Enki post is extremely unprofessional, mostly due to its vague hostility. "Make no mistake folks, I am very unhappy at all that has been transpiring, but know this, I know you have been concerned about the lack of recent public updates, and all this doom and gloom is just a mood that people feel from time to time, public updates will resume when the Dev team are ready." Ok, so all the people complaining about having to beta-test an ill-conceived breeding update are just being moody? REALLY? Seeing the friends list displaying "offline" besides most people is just being moody? REALLY? Regarding the treatment of Demona, I certainly don't condone harrassment! But also let's not forget to cast blame on the people who put her into the untenable situation she found herself in. They turned her into a lightning rod, and refused to give her adequate protection, since she wasn't able/allowed to answer most if not all of the pressing questions us players had.
  14. Fair point. VR users typically have high end PC's and they want to play games that look great. I don't see many of them being excited about loading up a 15 year old game with low res textures.
  15. Underrated post. Adding VR support to this game? May as well add blockchain support. That is a popular buzzword too, which has little to no connection to wurm. Seems to me going through the suggestions forum, and prioritising on popularity and ease of implentation would bring back more players than adding support for VR. Currently 2% of Steam users have a VR headset. TWO PERCENCT...
  16. Am I correct in my assumption, that the amount of traits that the parents possess in their dominant trait line, plays absolutely no role at all in determining how many traits their offspring will have? I got to a point where I started breeding mostly 4speed horses and the outcome is just as irregular and crappy as when breeding 3speed horses. Same with bison, breeding 4draft parents produces completely random amounts of draft traits on their offspring. So it is all lottery now? No point in establishing a great breeding stock? Why? Can't wait to start breeding the horses with the rare speed trait...I feel I already know what will happen, they will produce completely random offspring, at which point I may just pull the plug on this betatesting breeding experiment.
  17. I can finally provide some numbers on that. Adolescent 4 draft bison on a mostly empty ql 75 cart hit just above 20kmh and 16 kmh when the cart is full. I think I had similar results with 3 draft bison on a ql 50 wagon, about 18 kmh there.
  18. 4speed and 3speed ebony parents:
  19. More volume per container in the cupboard would be my number one wish if this item ever gets looked at.
