  1. What I caught one of mine doing when he thought I wasn't looking. Sorry, couldn't resist.

  6. **Ahem. Cough, cough.** /clears throat and looks embarrassed Ok, I know I'm pve and never pvp'd in Wurm, and so my opinion is maybe unwelcome by some, but I think maybe it's not totally irrelevant. Reason being, I think it's safe to say that there are no pvpers on either side of this argument who do not want more people to pvp in Wurm. And I'm pretty sure everybody (ok, mostly everybody), pvp and pve alike, wants to attract more people to Wurm overall. To me, looking at it from the outside, this whole thing appears to have been nothing more than a morally bankrupt person abusing the trust of others, and abusing the fact that on pvp, trusting your kingdom mates is a requirement in order to function. I wonder, did any other kingdom benefit from this, or did this person just gleefully run off to safety, stick his tongue out, and start selling for personal gain? I could be wrong but it seems that the pvp folks need to trust their kingdom mates. On pve, we can be little islands if we aren't willing to trust people we don't know. It sucks, but we have that option. Correct me if I'm wrong but from where I sit, it doesn't seem that Wurm-style pvp has that luxury. If this kind of thing were to be sanctioned by the game, what message does that send to new people thinking about trying it? It might attract a tiny minority of the average pvpers out there, but certainly not a lot. I know that situations like this are one of a few reasons I won't pvp in Wurm. And a couple pvp guys I know in RL, my grandson included, took a look at Wurm a few years back when I suggested it and told me thanks but no thanks. (pretty much laughed at me actually, lol) Well anyway, I think that this should in no way ever become normalized in Wurm, even on pvp even though I don't play there, because I feel it would harm the game as a whole. I was happy to see Enki's post, even though it doesn't have an immediate effect on me because I care about Wurm and would like to see it attracting new pvp and pve folks. Ok, shutting up now. I usually keep my opinions to myself where pvp is concerned. I just don't know what comes over me sometimes.
  7. And just because I'm in King Crimson mode today. Epitaph from their first album In the Court of the Crimson King. Vocals by Greg Lake, (later of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer), who sadly died this last December, may he rest in peace.
  8. King Crimson has still got it after all these years. Went to their concert last night. Got to see them perform this song, which has always been one of my favorites. Amazing, amazing, musicians. I was a fan back in the 70s and went to many of their concerts, and musically they haven't suffered in the least from the lineup changes over the years. If anything, they've gotten better with age.

  12. -1. Most emphatically. Very few things annoy me more in any game, as far as graphics are concerned, than excessive darkness and lack of visibility. I find absolutely nothing pleasant about it, in fact I find it very unpleasant. I generally do not play games that insist I should blindly grope my way through the game at night in the name of realism, or I limit my time in the game to times when I can bloody see. I'm sorry but there are times when too much realism in a computer game defeats the entire purpose of playing a computer game in the first place. And not to be overly adversarial, but to say that those who have older comps are "stuck in the past" and should "get with the times" and/or tweak their settings because you want it darker, that's a bit of a stretch don't you think? How 'bout this, those who are yearning for the so-called "good old days," could always "get with the times" (since at the current time night is not pitch black), and tweak their own settings & monitors to achieve the darkness they want, since their computers are so uber and can probably achieve the results they want far easier than those who have the older computers.

  14. +1. I want more than just the visual after mooring though. I want to be able to furl sails to reduce wind influence and use manual labor (rowing) to maneuver for docking. The biggest reason I never use my larger ships is that I'm not overly fond of head on collisions with land every time I decide not to moor out in the water and swim in. They're too uncontrollable for my blood. (they do make nice harbor decorations though, lol)
