Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Wurmians!

 

Haha I do not even think I will bother with writing much here.

If you are not already scrolling past this to get to, yes..

Bridges!

 

But that is not all, lots of juicy news for one and all so lets

Share some News!

 

 

Bridges!

Indeed! I have been holding out on you Wurmians I know, sorry about that.

I have been hearing the weekly echoes and moans about bridges all this time but now finally, lets start talking about them again.

After all that earlier hype, we hit some real complex barriers which took allot of development time to overcome.

And before we brought it up again, we wanted to feel confident the project was proven to work within reasonable parameters and getting close to finished.

And yes, we are now confident that bridges will be done and ready for implementation soon.

 

So as you can see from the picture, you are now able to travel over the bridges which from a development standpoint is huge.

It is very complex to say the least to get correct collisions to be generated along with player creations in a persistent sandbox environment.

Hence why so few if any have done it before.

Can you think of a game that has this functionality? I really can not recall a single game where you can do this.

 

I think almost all of the coders on Wurm crew has been involved in this project to some extent.

We are currently nailing down the final limitations and functionality of the bridges.

So we are not going to much into details and answers before that.

But as an example we are exploring the possibility of having them connected directly to buildings and to a different level of a building.

A very interesting prospect but something that of course poses unique challenges on its own.

 

The plan is to get them in with a bigger update.

What will be in this update you say?

Well, that is still on the down low but rest assured I will be letting you in on it as soon as possible.

But it is seriously looking to become a neat package!

Is christmas is coming early this year Wurmians?

 

Digging for treasure!

 

Digging now holds a chance to reward you with Rare Bones & Emeralds.

You will only have the chance of finding anything if you are really digging so no:

 

Digging - dropping - digging - dropping... No sir that will not do!

 

Anybody, even non premium accounts have the chance of finding Emeralds.

Only premium accounts however have the chance of finding Rare Bones.

 

For those who do not know:

Emeralds are used for storing favor for future “magic†usage. It also catches a fair price on the market.

Rare Bones are used in crafting to increase the rarity of items.

 

Wool Hats

Aah so comfy and warm. And don't you just look striking when wearing it?

The wool hats, a first look at this craftable item which will of course be related to the commodity wool obtained from sheep.

Armor level will be the same as cloth.

 

Sheep Cage!

The only safe and cool way to keep your best sheep.

Judging by the size of a sheep, this cage and its mount will be about the height of a 4 story house!

What better way could there be to show of the pride of your herd?

Did I get you there? I am only trolling you dear Wurmians.

 

Bird Cage

So this is more feasible you think? Yeah probably.

This is a new decorative item and the bird inside will be animated.

Currently we have a hen populating it but I think it looks good.

Keep in mind this is work in progress.

Check it out!

Black Sheep

And talking about sheep, here you have our black sheep in all its glory.

Soon in a herd near you!

 

Lounge Chaise

You must reach a high level of fabulous and fine carpentry before even attempting to craft this.

Let alone pulling of one of these on your deed.

 

So as you are probably guessing, keeping this and the cage in mind.

There are more interior items being worked on as we speak!

 

 

So yet another weekly update draws to an end.

Do you realize I have been keeping these going for about a year now?

And it feels like the pace has only been increasing with Wurm development.

I am certain we are going to get tons of bridge questions again so remember what I said.

We really can not get into too much detail about its final implementation.

But it is so exciting! Finally! Bridges!

Keep on Wurming!

That explains why I got an emerald while digging yesterday XD


 


 


(I hit uncovered rock by digging away 1 dirt and got an emerald with that, I was thinking because for some weird reason I "hit rock" and that it saw it as mining somehow and gave me an emerald, but this explains it better :P)

Oh come on haha :P It is only an optional service Wurmians.

Just forget about it if you do not want to use it.

 

Do not give in to the drama so easily! Even though I know it is tempting ;)

 

Lets at least keep this thread to the topics at hand shall we?

Quick, get bridges out to the live servers so that we forget all this rubbish and forgive the arrogance!



 



 


I spy a bridge announcement, cunningly timed a few hours after public outrage.


 


Did I utterly call this or what?


 


I win this round!
