  1. Wurm freight board

    Hey all. Some of you might remember me as the guy behind southwindmarket.com. It was a fun little project of mine and it had a good run. Lately I've had another idea that's been stewing in my head. I'd like to make a freight board for Wurm Online, where buyers and sellers can find someone to handle the delivery part. Wagoners seem nice but they come at a pretty high price and have their limitations. How would that work? Keep in mind I'm still at the brainstorming stage, and very open to suggestions. The sale part would happen as it already does: seller advertises his goods in trade chat/forums/etc. buyer contacts seller, you know the rest. Seller isn't very interested in delivering, buyer isn't very interested in picking it up, so one of them creates an entry on the load board (website) and "invites" the other party. Now they both enter their location (interactive maps?) and whoever pays for the shipping sets the amount he's offering, someone sees it, thinks it's a fair price and submits his interest But what if we're not all online at the same time? Well, I'd like to recommend this as standard practice: Seller puts the crates in a purpose-built building or boat (corbita?), sets permissions for shipper to embark as passenger and access hold (or equivalent for building, as long as he can take the stuff) and buyer sets the same permissions on his building or boat. Shipper gets to seller's place, loads the crates in his boat, travels to buyer's place and transfers them to his ship). Job done. How would the payment happen? It's up to you, either leave the money in one of the boats/buildings, or send a woodscrap when you've delivered the goods. And why would I trust the other parties involved? Well, trust and reputation have a big role in Wurm Online. I was thinking I'd make a reputation system (open to suggestions on that, I was thinking of a simple satisfaction rating in %) and a bio. If you're just starting out, put a link to your Wurm profile page and get people you know to vouch for you. Pretending you're someone else wouldn't work, as the permissions would be set for the person you're pretending to be. And what if I get ripped off? I'd actually like to have a chat with GMs about that. It'd be really cool if they'd agree to have one or more moderator accounts on the website to see proof of recent activity and assist players the same way they would assist if it had all been done in-game (I assume that's why "report theft" is green in /support?) What's in it for you? A fun project to work on. I don't plan to make any money out of it whatsoever. We'll see how much it costs (hosting / SSL certificate / domain name), I might put a donation button somewhere, but you'll never have to pay a dime. It's also my own way of trying to give back to the Wurm Online community. I think it would help the economy and make it easier to transport goods in Wurm for a living. I'm sure it would help new players get started with trading too. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you guys think. I'm open to all questions and suggestions. Happy Wurming! On a side note: Can I use the server maps from the game? The terms of service are a little vague "CodeClub approves of sharing User Generated Material based on video, music, sound or screenshots from our game Wurm Online." I mean, I could take a screenshot of the server maps, but it wouldn't really be "user generated".
  2. Got something so Sell? Need gold, silver, iron, copper, tin, lead, zink or any other ores? Horses, pigs or other animals? (note, currently in short supply on everything but pigs) Tools? I can even get you tools, enchanted or unenchanted in a range of quality! I trade in almost all goods, in a variety of Quality from 1QL to max 90QL. I will find what you need and make sure you get it delivered to your settlement. I'm always looking for the best prices, and travel constantly, so if you're selling something in the Lomere region let me know! As I'm traveling so much I'm also glad to provide shipping for already sold goods. May transport outside of the Lomere region, but additional charges may apply. Feel free to post here with details, or contact me in-game @ Alexliltoe. Quotes given at time of contact.
  3. Harbour or docks - shipping

    If you have a great harbour please post some pics here. I am looking for inspiration for a brand new harbour where I can park my ships or have friends park theirs. Thanks!!
  4. Hawks Delivery Service

    I am looking to make deliveries for a small fee. Anyone with orders that need to be delivered somewhere on freedom isles including chaos pm me either in game (hawkstarsiii) or here on the forums. Delivering only to shores will not deliver inland unless the receiving party provides carts and an extra 10c. Only delivering on weekends! Delivery Costs: Exodus, deli: 10c Inde: 5c Celeb: 15c
  5. Hey all, I've been considering starting up a shipping company (for those who remember it'd be in a similar style to Issle's.) I think there's probably a lot of demand for sailors across freedom, whether it's transporting bulk supplies or moving non-mailable or impractical to mail items (including people!) Travelling isn't always fun or easy and it requires you to get all the gear like a boat and rafts. I'd like to know how many people would be interested in using such a service, and also how many would consider being employed by it as paid sailors. It would be a very profitable job, would only really require time and navigation. Easy enough to do on an alt. Also interesting would be forming contracts with bulk suppliers/crafters etc, could do reliable deliveries specifically for suppliers so they can focus on making not moving. - Docterchese

How do I make a purchase? Send a letter to my mailbox that includes the following information: Full name ( in game name) Location ( X,Y cords / Server) City ( if you live in one, if not, one that we can meet you at that is on the map ) Item(s) being purchased Quantity Proposed price ( leave blank if you want the WISC base price, remember all prices are negotiable ) Deadline ( latest you could accept delivery, be reasonable ) If the item you wish to purchase is not on the above list, Chances are we can still get a contractor to sign up and take the order, just allow a little bit more time for the order to be completed.

  9. Megaton Shipping Co.

    Shipping services closed to the public for now. Sorry!
  10. This travel advisory applies only to pilots of deep-hulled ships. I came down from Independence yesterday with a Corbita full of cargo and was disappointed to find that the straits East of Tapdance, joining the inner sea and the eastern sea were impassable in my ship due to a ford that had been made there. I had to get out and push, which turned an otherwise smooth and pleasant voyage into a real hassle. Furthermore, because it was on deed, my passenger couldn't help me push. It's Kami's choice to use its deed as it sees fit, and I fully support their right to do so. I am not asking them to change anything, at all. If they want to limit shipping traffic through their straights to shallow-hulled ships, so be it. But, I encourage anyone with a deep-hulled ship to go around the western end and save yourself the headache of having to get out and push. By the looks of the crossing, shallow hulled ships (Rowboats, Small Rafts, Small Sailboats, and possibly Knarrs) should still be able to get through without trouble.
