Today, while trying to destroy a building on deed with a ballista, I encountered an interesting issue. The ballista destroyed the upper floor fine, but when it started hitting the lower floor's Marble slab floor, it did this: [09:05:46] QL = 20.695414, dam=112.836945. (Edit: Shot it again: [09:28:23] QL = 20.695414, dam=132.83694.) The building is on deed and deed managed, to which I have manage and destroy permissions. Is there any other information needed?
In Wurmpedia, it states: http://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Ballista "Can be loaded onto Large cart and wagon, can also be picked up by hand (70kg)" There is no option to "take" - so cannot pick it up - but loaded on a large cart with no problem. and "Improves like fine carpentry items" well, it does not give the option to improve, even though on examination, it shows this: [21:24:45] This is a large mounted crossbow firing enormous darts. It is made from chestnut. It could be improved with a log. Ql: 31.37615, Dam: 0.0. The name of the owner, Baloo, has been etched in the stern. There is also no option to transfer ownership. I built this for an order and want to hand it over to them, imp'd up.... So, maybe this item needs some attention, to make it work properly ? Many thanks, in hope... PS: Once sorted out, Wurmpedia will need to be updated.
So we now have ballistas (aaaawwwwesome!)... next we should be able to put them on ships (limited to certain sizes, perhaps even two on caravels), wagons, large carts, etc. Perhaps even animals... Speaking of repeating fire weapons... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polybolos
