Hi Ya'll Not sure if this has been suggested before but I would like to suggest a new profession or feature to Wurm Online, dynamic map making (not a unique idea). The idea would be that an individual could create a small paper map that represents 1 single map tile, say N17. The paper map would get updated as the person journeys and travels within the N17 tile and would be based on view distance. As the person walks around the local area, the map would become more detailed showing the houses, roads and landscape. Locations far away within N17 would be less detailed until the person walks over. The single map tile could be duplicated, a copy feature, and traded to other individuals and joined together to create a huge detailed world map. Map makers all over the continent could trade, copy, maps with each other. The map could have restrictions where only if you have a higher map making skill then the original map maker could you update the map. If the map was made by a level 65 then only a level 65+ could add more detail to the map. This is to create an incentive for the map making skill and creates value for higher quality maps. The maps would then need to be updated by map makers as the landscape and towns evolve. This helps keep the profession "alive". Make mappers could add unique logos, lore history, town names, road names, and other map symbols to spice the map up. "Old maps" could have some historic value as they have updates/information that can no longer be created because of the landscape changes. Maps could be turned into villages to update a global map outside of the video game. This could be linked to wurmonline.com/maps or something. That way the community has an influence on updating the maps instead of devs creating a map (ruining the immersion).
I'm a very new player. 5 days old, I've leveled my plot, planted some crops and started to build out my house near a body of water. I'm curious, what kind of viability is there for someone who is considering building themselves a medium sized ship and setting out to become an angler? Can someone viably make decent income doing this? Is it an overly done profession? Is there any demand whatsoever? Would just like a little insight is all. For anyone curious I'm on a Pristine, a freedom server.
