  1. Added a newbie to the deed and right after accepting the invitation to join he got the option 'Do you want to teleport to (deedname) now?' I think this is an awesome addition. Thanks.
  2. It breaks my lil heart to watch the CA HELP tab and see the number of brand new players just getting completely obliterated by huge problems at the start of their adventure. A lot has been done to make the game more accessible over the years; it's all very impressive. The problem, as I see it, is that new players seem to always go to Xanadu. Now maybe that's not true - perhaps it's equal across all the servers - but the ones in trouble, the ones that cry in vain for assistance are invariably on Xanadu. So here's my basic idea: let's not give Xanadu as an option to toons created on fresh email addresses. Assume that they are brand new players, and stop them going to the biggest, most murderous, most isolated, most awe-inspiring server until they have skilled-up, or perhaps they're joining friends already there on an established deed. Something like that. Speaking for myself, I'd cross half a server to help a noob bleeding to death in the woods, but I cannot do that on Xan. Nothing against Xan; I am just thinking about the new players and the realities of being dropped into the middle of it. I'm really not trying to revitalise the older servers; I have interests on several servers including Xan, where I have deeded 3 times in different places. I like Xan. Xan doesn't like noobs. I think a mechanic along the above lines would lead to an increase in the Xan population as people will aspire to go there, and they'll be playing long enough to make that a reality, because they'd have survived better on the smaller servers. Sorry that i didn't write this better, but I hope you can see my point, and that the idea is actually helpful.
  3. As the title says, I started a new server and wanted it Newbie Friendly. I rebuilt the database, had the box ticked for Newbie Friendly, saved the database and started the server and right outside where I spawned are lava spiders and scorpions. I thought this checkbox was to keep those creatures from spawning. What did I do wrong?
  4. Hi. I wrote this guide thinking that most people never get the chance to read something like this. Wurmpedia doesn't tell everything it should as you might already know. Most people on freedom do not know these things , and sometimes even people on chaos. Keep in mind that this is my own opinion, i'm by no means an all knowing wizard and there's far more experienced people at PVP than myself. Guide starts up at freedom level 1FS toon and gets more complex as pages go on. Note that you should have a basic understanding of the wurm mechanics to be able to follow it. Basicly i want you to know what "body strength" is or how to create basic tools and so on and so forth. Have fun. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vleppxC7I-qIZ3IXKBzRLoENsm9YT5cAf0JoAVsyu0I/edit?usp=sharing
  5. Hello! I'm a newbie looking to repay a debt with a friend, If you have any jobs I could do please tell me I do have premium so the quality of the products I make for you may increase logarithmically I live in the north eastern region of Xan but don't mind travelling far if you have a place for me to stay :3
  6. Hey, I'm a newbie holed up near Blossom on Pristine and I was looking for a bit of work so I can start making those sweet silvers (and help you with your tasks?). I have a small rowboat so I should be okay to work at any Freedom location; coastal preferred since I don't have any other reliable means of transportation, sorry. If you're interested, please PM me here or in-game (Botte) so we can discuss whatever you need done.
  7. Good Evening, I have noticed that every day when I log on I have extra time added on my Newbie buffs. I have been playing for a total of [19:00:14] You have played 1 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. and I still have another 2 hours newbie buffs available. When I logged off the last time I had ~30 minutes Newbie buffs left, and when I logged on now again a few minutes ago I had over 2 Hours left again. Newbie buffs are fun but I am 15 hours overdue and think it should maybe be looked at. I'm new to WO but played many many hours WU and not sure if that might be the difference. Below a link of a screenshot I took Newbie Buff Still Available Kind Regards Farmboy

  10. I have just started playing Wurm Online and I am enjoying every minute of it. My long term goal is to have tamed my very own dragon. And i am having trouble finding information on this. Can anyone tell me what skills i need. I've noticed there is some debate between having the taming skill at 100% or becoming a priest and using the spell Dominate. I am hoping it is taming at 100% because i saw that dominating only lasts for 3 days. I am also on Freedom Isles so i dont know if that helps or not. Any other information on taming would be helpful. And i apologize if this is in the wrong thred or if a thred exists taht covers this. Thanks.
  11. Storm's End is a 51x35 village located close to the northern shore of Crystal Lake on Independence. I've recently returned from hiatus and expanded the deed to continue projects on site. Storm's End is a member of the Storm Lands alliance, which also includes neighboring deeds; Yoggster's Patch Returns, An Unusual Place, Haven (the Hunting Lodge deed in the Grand Steppe), and Fafnir. The local area around Storm's End is fairly quiet, except for the alliance members. We have space for a few new villagers if anyone is interested in settling down in a new neighborhood. We'd prefer experienced players to apply, however we don't discriminate against the newbs either! If you'd like a nice village to settle into and hone your skills or work on projects then Storm's End is a good fit for you. We have a rare guard tower, a mailbox, an extensive mine and close access to the waterfront. Leave a comment here or pm me if you're interested in joining. Have a blessed day!
  12. Hey i just bought Constantinople and realize it is huge any newbies need a place to skill up it has everything you could need stop by K17
  13. I am building a server on my home network (to test before I go live) that modifies the original rule set beyond the parameters of the GUI/console. I have seen other servers do it... Increasing QL for newbie tools Adding/removing/changing newbie tools Adding starter buffs (such as the newbie food/heal/aggro buff like on WO) Periodic server messages anything else you can think of that isn't "vanilla" When I built my own server, I could change the experience leveling as well as action speed, but beyond that I saw no additional settings. Maybe I am missing it, but I Googled and searched the Mods section and don't see anything that changes these rules/templates. I have checked the SQLite files and didn't see anything resembling the above. I have experience with Minecraft server administration (Bukkit and Forge mainly), but I am lost here. Can anyone here assist me in how to approach this? Any links or configs you can provide are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  14. I am playing as a FTP for a break and while doing some thinking on how to manage spawning back at my spot it got me to thinking that the explorer tent might be a little high with the materials list for a fresh player to replace their spawn point. Now i do not know how long the newbie tent takes before it decays but as a new ftp character i would have no way in making cordage rope so maybe we should lower that to just rope? TLDR: My suggestion is to change the explorer tent to use only rope and not cordage rope. Edit: people also want them to be lighter.
  15. To make the point of this thread simple and sweet, here is the goal: collecting data and compiling research as to why new players often quit playing Wurm early into their Wurm life, or what inspires them to continue playing Wurm and developing friendships within the community. Whether you're a veteran or a new player, please chime in as to why you believe new players leave Wurm so suddenly, or why they find good reasons to stick around. I would especially appreciate the opinions of new players on this matter, as these testimonies will come from first hand experience. Be sure to list several reasons, in detail, that you feel qualify, such as: Population density - too many people on a server, not enough people, or just the right amount?Game mechanics - maybe it's difficult to understand some features, or perhaps you enjoy the challenge?Friends - hard time making friends, or were you welcomed readily with open arms?Early Stages - is it hard to get past the early stages of leveling up skills, or do you find it relatively easy? How do you feel about the ratio of successes to fails when crafting at low levels? Is getting started on your first projects (such as a house) a good or bad experience?Premium - is it hard to make the leap to buy premium, or did you go all-in and subscribe as soon as you could?Goals - not sure what to focus your efforts on, or do you already have dreams of castles and kingdoms just waiting for you to build them?These are just some ideas to provoke thought and encourage new players to share their experiences. If you're a new player reading this, please share your frustrations and your joys of Wurm Online. If you'd rather keep your feelings and ideas private, you can pm me instead of commenting here. Special Request: Keep it civil in here amongst yourselves. Bashing other players directly or by name isn't what this thread is about.
  16. Read the Wikipedia. Yes, the info can be so-so; however, its still invaluable. Ask questions. ALOT. Just pester everybody... especially the CAs. The masochists actually volunteered for this. Never click on a link posted by Glory. EVER. If you have to ask, the answer is, "No, you cant kill it." Steal everything not nailed down, then come back for the nails. Its perfectly fine to spam Enki with pms.
  17. New player looking for a settlement to join. I've played wurm online before, but currently playing on a brand new char. I'm currently located in g13 on xanadu, and would prefer a settlement close to me. I am a active, social player, and i will be able to use teamskype, skype etc. My IGN is arteezy.
  18. I'm so happy to have finally made it back to Wurm online now that it is once more Mac compatible. However it hurts, my old character is long gone and nearly 2 years of progress little more than a memory... I will be looking to start again on Idie's Freedom Isles, it will be interesting to see how mich jas changed since I last played, and if i can find them, i look forward to seeing old face again, but for now I will need help; shelter, Conversion to vynora and some tools to get me going os all I ask, i am more than willing to work fields and mines to pay my way untill i am back up to strength. I will tey to be online tonight.

  22. Hi there Prestine, I'm new to this game and don't have an idea where and how to start. I was travelling a bit, but was killed twice. I tried to build a ship but need nails and don't know hoe to build them or where to buy It's sort of hard to get into the Game in the very beginning. So if there's anyone who wants to help me out a bit, please let me know! Thank you, Raphiman EDIT: omg, I think I posted in the wrong forum, sorry!
  23. I just got my account today, and I really need some help! Whenever I launch Wurm, my screen is completely black while the music is playing.
  24. Hello all, I used to love to play Wurm a while back, and I would play it frequently on my laptop with no issues. Recently, I have decided to get back into the game, but I can barely even move due to lag (still playing on my laptop). What technical issues might be causing this, or is this just due to a general update of the game? I've already lowered all of my graphics settings to no avail. Please help! I love Wurm and am dying to play.
  25. I feel sorry for new players joining the game with the new farming system. I have a fairly new alt and it is discouraging to even think about having to rake, rake, rake and get 1 harvest. I think that skill levels below 20 should go back to the minimum of 2 harvest per tile. Sure leave it the same for the other skill levels, if you rake you get more, but don't penalize the new player so severely.
