coop- Seriphina (sorry!) I apologise for the late news, this week has been busy, and what a huge week it's been! There's a lot to unpack as we review the update and our feedback on your feedback with the various new systems in. This fortnights Valrei International will be the last until early next year, we expect to return with the next edition on the 23rd of January! But first... Fishing fun So this overhaul of the fishing system has been big, with a lot of confusion and a little bit of wogic in the systems. Needless to say there'll be a period of tweaking based on your feedback, we've already removed the ability for reels to be broken on a fail, instead taking damage. We'll also look at tweaking how difficulty affects fishing, with it currently being a little confusing. For the record, the message of "you miss the x" is a skillcheck fail, it's not timing based! We'll be working with the wiki team in getting the full fishing system up on the wurmpedia including fish and their preferred bait and locations! New tutorial and journal The new tutorial system has had lots of positive feedback, there's room for a few tweaks and we'll be working on those in the new year along with the planned phase 2 of the journal. As we've stated before, the journal is the successor to the personal goal system, aimed at picking up from the tutorial and moving forward, guiding a player from their first steps into the game into the long road of becoming a wurm veteran, the first five stages are in, with tasks such as building a house, imping items to certain thresholds and more. We have a few more tiers planned in phase two with bigger and better rewards, as well as including systems to allow priests to take part and 100% complete tiers. Expect to see that early in the new year, as that will be one of the first things we want to work on. Tapdance redesign The proposals are in, and it's voting time! We have two contestants, with team shark and team allenkey! Both designs are pretty awesome and I'm keen to see either one come in, so head to the thread, check them out and place your vote! Community Content In just a few short hours, I'll be joining my Assistant CRC and VEN coordinator Joelle in a stream decorating Havens Landing! We'll be working with fellow VEN member Fabricant and Madnath while we decorate all the buildings and parks of Havens Landing, feel free to jump in and help with your ideas too! Some poor sucker will be left spawning items for them, haha, what a lo... wait! That's it from us for this weeks Valrei International, and indeed for this year! It's been a HUGE year with a ton of content added and plenty of advancement made, with these steps taken we know 2019 will be even bigger and better. Until then though, we at the Wurm team hope you have a wonderful safe and happy holiday season, put an angel with a tiara on the tree, and have a happy new year, we'll see you in 2019! Retrograde & the Wurm team.
the gods watch over - User Hi Everyone! It's been a busy few weeks here at Wurm HQ, with quite a few projects underway as well as the launch of WU 1.7 with all that placement goodness. We have an update planned for tomorrow with the addition of normal mapping for new ground textures, and hopefully a little bit more, so let's jump in! Looking normal As we've discussed in the past, we're working on a major update and overhaul of graphics with the addition of normal and specular mapping, and the first pieces are ready to go live! Terrain is the first update, with many of the terrain textures updated, and normal and specular mapping added. It really changes the look and feel of the lands of wurm, as you can see below there are some major improvements: Snow even looks good! (Now all you have to worry about are pesky colds, but they even come in summer) Next up, we'll begin working on housing, which will really bring out some much needed depth to walls and buildings, as you can see here of a WIP shot of the pottery brick walls This is a rather large undertaking though, so it will take time to come to everything in the game, but the difference is definitely worth the wait! the terrain normal and specular will come in tomorrows update, but will be disabled by default, so if you want to check them out, make sure to enable normal maps on the advanced graphic settings tab once this goes live! Sindusk Joins the Dev Team A well established modder and server host, Sindusk, has taken the full plunge into madness by joining the Wurm dev team! In addition to running his own server, Revenant, he will be working with us in various tasks, starting with some work on bugs (seriously, lots of bugs fixed already) and looking at a few projects long desired. We're excited to have him on board and keen to see what he brings to the game! Valrei Entertainment Network additions This week sees the addition of two new members to the VEN program, Neferent and BrimstoneVomit! Neferent streams his travels across Xanadu as he nearly dies to scorpions with crocodiles for shoes: BrimstoneVomit streams his adventures on Wurm as he builds his deed and talks about his plans: I'd like to welcome them both to the program, and look forward to watching more of their adventures! On top of this, we have two more projects in the works, they may not go live tomorrow, pending whether we can iron out a few oddities, but they’re certainly things to get excited about! Item Placement 2.0 Hot off the heels of the new placement mechanic comes the next update to it, adding a new range of surfaces that can hold items on them! The full list is below: large anvil large barrel tub small barrel stone altar wood altar silver altar gold altar coffin well large magic chest small magic chest oil barrel wine barrel coffer alchemists cupboard storage unit small amphora large amphora The following surfaces will also heat any item placed on them: Oven Forge Hota statue Kiln Smelter Still So be sure not to place any wooden items on them, or they will get burned up! New Metal Alloy: Electrum Electrum is a new alloy made from gold and silver. It can be used to make all metal items as well as jewelry, bardings, and horse shoes. The full modifier list is below: Armour .5% DR bonus +2% glance rate bonus -1% movement speed penalty Weapon -2.5% attack speed -1% damage dealt +5% bonus to damage dealt to hunter mobs General -10% damage taken 9x trader price -20% decay damage taken +2.5% bonus to repairing +7.5% bonus to pendulum area of effect +10% bonus to bash damage Can be used to make statuettes Can be used to make unicorn shoes With this alloy comes one other unique item: Electrum Rune of Fo. This rune can be used to reduce the age relative to their current age upon successful use. While this means creatures can be made younger, it cannot be used on Wurmians, so it looks like my wrinkles are here to stay. Community content, the Wurm Unlimited Tournament: Round 2 Grab a partner and head on over to Wurm Unlimited for the second round of Darklords’ Competitive League. This time, instead of a 3v3 fight, it’s 2v2 to make it easier for teams to coordinate. Another change is the implementation of DUSKombat , a new combat mod designed for Wurm Unlimited, which drastically changes the way combat works. There is a 2 gold prize pool for Darklords’ tournament, with 1 gold for the winning team, 50 silver for 2nd place, and 25 silver each for 3rd and 4th. Signups for the tournament are open until Friday, so hurry up and form your teams now! That's it from us this week, we'll be busy with all these changes and more over the coming weeks, so be sure to stick around and check it out. Until then though, keep on wurming!

A domesticated bee hive Hi Everyone! We've had a few more hotfixes this week to address some unfortunate combat problems, although we're fairly certain the exploits have been removed and should be smooth sailing from now on. If you encounter any issues or exploits please be sure to report them to the GM team by pming a GM on the forum, or emailing gamemods(at)wurmonline.com Patch Notes Wurm Online Wurm Unlimited WU Update Version 126.96.36.199 of Wurm Unlimited went live this week, with the new clothing and other updates coming in! We aim to have the new beta up by next week, with the PvP, combat, and other changes in that for modders and admins to make sure everything works. Cooking! The time comes closer to public testing of the new cooking system, with our devs and several volunteers working hard to ensure that it hits the public test server as soon as possible! This weeks peek is at the recipes, and ways to share them. Players who create a meal, can write down that recipe on papyrus using a reed pen filled with ink or dye, and then they are able to trade, mail or sell the recipe card, and allow other players to use them to learn new recipes. Rumour has it that certain humanoid creatures in the wild also have their own unique recipes, ones that cannot be cooked without knowing how to make them... Food storage Another common question about the cooking update is about decaying of meals! Certain items such as sandwiches and chocolate (!) will be able to be wrapped, which will greatly reduce decay on those items. Meals cooked with salt will also have reduced decay, though these will not stack. There will also be a storage option to greatly reduce decay of items that cannot be stored in a storage bin, with something special involved too, but more on that in another weeks news! What secret does the larder contain? how does it stay so cool? Another big storage option will be the ability to store liquids without decay! Sealing a liquid container with beeswax and cloth will prevent all decay on various containers, including amphorae and pottery jars. Wine barrels will also be able to be sealed, but will use a different method. Community Content This week forum user goldgretel has been sharing some amazing shots from their adventures in Wurm, I couldn't go past this amazing one of a castle by a lake! That's it for this week,there's still plenty more to share about the cooking update, and hopefully we'll have all the information ready by the time it lands on the public testing server I hope you all have a great week, and keep on wurming! Retrograde & the wurm team.
