Eclipse - Yaga Hi Everyone! This week saw a (slightly bumpy) update which will be the last content update before the big one, with the new skill, Valrei overhaul, and a whole bunch of new systems and changes. We'll go into detail with each one over the coming weeks, starting today But first... Patch Notes The wagoner! The introduction of the highway system was part 1, with part 2, we introduce the wagoner! Remember this hidden person? The wagoner provides a way of sending bulk items (e.g. bricks, etc) to a particular deed in a semi-automated way. Deliveries may be pre-paid or CoD. A maximum of 20 large crates may be sent in a single delivery, and transport runs between deeds. Wagoners operate a special wagon for their deliveries. When making a delivery, the wagoner will load his/her wagon, and drive it from the origin to the destination, unload the goods, before returning to his/her home deed. Wagoners use the new highway system to navigate, so the origin and destination need to be connected to the same highway network. The wagoner will be available via a contract sold on traders as well as public ones at starter deeds. They may be set to charge a small fee per crate delivered, or free use. Mine door showcase We've teased the gold and steel mine doors, but today we reveal all four of the new ones! The rock one will remain the same to blend in of course, sometimes standing out isn't in your best interests. Community Content - Official Discord As discord becomes more and more popular, there's been a few questions about getting an official discord up and running, and today we launch it! Discord is a text and voice chat system that can be used on mobile, in a browser, or on a desktop client. It's a great way of connecting and getting to know your fellow Wurmians out of the game so jump in and try it out today (we may even include some giveaways!) https://discord.gg/TTr9KPm Simply follow this link, sign up if you haven't used Discord before, and get started! There's more to come before the next update, We'll be catching up with the guys from Factional Fight and we'll be revealing all the details about the new skill in a special video starring myself and Budda! I know you're all as keen as I am for that, so keep your eyes peeled! Until then though, keep on wurming! Retrograde & the Wurm team
Room with a view Wilczan (Did I do this one before?) HI Everyone! One week since the highway system was introduced, and we've been keeping an eye on feedback and issues raised. We've also got the winners of the tapestry contest and the blossom redesign to announce. It's a winner packed Valrei International today, so let's get started! Tapestry contest winner(s)! This tapestry competition had some AMAZING entries, and the entire dev team was blown away by the amount and quality of entries, so we felt it only fair to expand the competition to three winners! After deliberation, discussion, and perfecting our art critic poses, we have determined the three winners who will see their tapestry ingame (as well as a supreme copy of it upon introduction) Ehizellbob: Mclavin: Evening: On behalf of the dev team I'd like to congratulate all winners, and thank everyone who entered. This competition has proven to be extremely popular, we might have to look at more ways of getting your content into the game... We'll be in contact with the winners to sort out the fine print and will see these images ingame in a future update! Blossom redesign There has been some hot competition for the blossom update, and the top place has been close, but the winner of the redesign contest is Joelle with "Blossom Park"! I'd like to congratulate her and we'll be in touch to organise the start of work. All designs were amazing, and I'm keen to see more entries for future deed design contests! Unstable client With continued work on the unstable client we finally have a date for the switching to stable! Come September 1st we'll be releasing the 4.0 client as the stable version, meaning the current stable one will no longer be the client you receive when you click play. Obviously this means it's really important that you try it now, we'll be leaving reminders in-game to check it out and report any issues you do have. Trying it now means you avoid issues when it launches as the stable client, so please do! Feedback on your feedback Throughout the past week we've been helping with highway questions, and taking your feedback on board. From this we'll be making three changes in the coming updates 1) Planting catseyes is currently at 2 seconds on deed and 10 seconds off deed, this will be changing to 2 seconds on deed and 10 seconds minus .5 seconds for every 10 paving skill. Meaning at 50 skill it will be 7.5 seconds and at 90 skill it will be 5.5 seconds. 2) Many have commented on the brightness of the colours of the waystones, citing them as slightly jarring. The colour of the stone is important as it provides information of links and status, but we'll be looking at dimming the colour somewhat and making it a little more subtle. 3) Blessed lamps on highway tiles will not take decay. Mine door updates. Mine doors are an important part of any deed security, and we've been working on giving them a bit of a makeover, here's the first: You vs the guy she tells you not to worry about That's not all though, coming soon mine doors will have a brand new opening animation: Community Content This weeks community content is a Wurm Online fansite, Xanadu or bust! http://xanaduorbust.tumblr.com/ This player toured deeds on xanadu and sharing his sights along the way, it doesn't look to be up to date, but certainly gives ideas for travelling and exploring! That's it from us this week, I hope you're all mining gold and making sheets in preperation for the new mine door(s)! Next news will be the day of the unstable launch, so make sure to try it out! Until then though, keep on wurming! Retrograde & The Wurm team.
People with permission to fully manage a mine door should also have the option to remove the door from the cave entrance. It makes no sense to have to bash a mine door off. It should be able to be unhinged and lifted off. Give it a long timer or something but bashing an 8200 hitpoint steel door is not a fun way to spend the day.
