  1. I could be remembering wrong, but I'm pretty sure I had to grind anything that was above 20 back to their previous levels, even days and multiple logins after i premed up. I was thinking at the time "ahh...ok....this is the real penalty for letting my account lapse back to free".
  2. Well, like I said, that was not my experience. I let my account lapse about 9 months ago and when I purchased more premium, all of my skills were still at 20 with the (3x) indicated until I ground them up to where they were before (which didn't really take that all that much with sleep bonus and 3x). My characteristics all stayed the same, prem or not, because none were above 30, though.
  3. Based on my experience, this isn't exactly true. Once you buy premium again any skills that were above 20 start at 20 and regain at 3 times normal until you get back up to where you were before you un-premed.
  4. Why wouldn't I? I have one FSB for all of my food and still haven't reached the limit of what it can hold yet.
  5. How are you being forced? If you don't want to use it, then don't use it. Just out of curiosity, how do you find a specific item in a BSB or a FSB with hundreds of different items in it?
  6. Just out of curiosity, which key would you suggest to replace ESC key for canceling actions if you use it for closing windows? I use the ESC key quite often, for example, when I happen to queue up 3 actions and some mob I wasn't aware of attacks me or when I accidentally queue up 3 leveling actions when I meant to dig, etc., etc., etc.
  7. ESC is already being used to stop actions and if no actions are ongoing it opens/closes the main menu. I simply walk away from the containers I have open when I want to close a bunch of windows. The one that took me a little bit of time to get used to was that the up/down arrows don't move the highlight up or down in the topmost window like pretty much every other application in the world does. I get that this isn't something that can be changed because the arrows are used for movement, but this has caused me to fall of a cliff once and to fall off the second story of my house a couple of times when i was building it.
  8. How old are you?

    Voted. Turned 57 today. This also. I started on the US version of the ZX81, the T/S 1000, and a TRS-80 from Radio Shack. The first real "PC" with DOS (PC DOS 1.0) we had was an IBM 5150 with a serial number under 1000. I wish I would have saved that PC instead of cannibalizing the parts for later PC's, it would probably be worth something these days.
  9. I've seen similar things happen to other games before. Original developers sell the game to some corporation and they decide to focus on something that ruins the game. For example, I played World Golf Tour (WGT) for years, spent a lot of time getting decent clubs and played most every day. They sold it to Top Golf who decided to make it a mobile app and basically ruined the experience for all the long time PC players.
  10. My 2 irons concerning the VR stuff: Not interested in it at all because of how I play this game. I play to relax after a hard days work or on the weekends. I'm usually playing next to my wife (who is usually reading) while we have some movie or series on the TV for background noise. I play without the sound so I can hear the TV and/or my wife when she's talking to me (besides the sound is pretty annoying sometimes). I constantly go AFK when I'm playing because I have a real life things to attend to like cooking, eating, getting coffee, dishes, attending to the household pets, phone calls, etc. etc. etc. While VR could be pretty cool, it's not something I'm interested in because I don't just play Wurm when I'm playing Wurm, I'm also doing lots of other stuff in real life too. I really don't care if VR gets developed or not, I just hope it doesn't ruin the game for those who are content to play Wurm on a regular computer or a laptop.
  11. I've searched through Wurmpedia and exhausted all of my google-foo on the forums and still haven't found the answer to this seemingly noob question: What does the "450" in the message below mean?
  12. Thanks for the info. I haven't explored the religion stuff yet...I'm still too busy figuring out other stuff at the moment. Plus I rarely see anyone in local to convert me and I'm too chicken to make the pilgrimage to Chaos anyways.
  13. Is that ANY altar? Do I have to be a follower?
  14. Out of curiosity, what do people do with all their unwanted locks and keys? I've found a bunch around me that were all that was left of old deeds. Since I don't like them polluting the landscape, I picked them up and for a lack of a better solution I have been dumping them in the middle of the lake near me. Perhaps we could get some sort of lock/key recycle bin located at the starter towns or something.
