We are LIVE!

 

 

Livemap: http://andistyr.github.io/wu-map/

 

 

We will be hosting a modded Wurm Unlimited PVE server. This server will have many features which will remove most of the hard grinding and make Wurm even more fun to play. On this server there will be an Wurm style economy with one big market place where people can sell there items to other people. There also will be many events (we try to make them weekly) where you can earn items and coins. With this server we hope to give you and us a fun experience playing and surviving together in the big world of Wurm Unlimited.

Down below we have listed a bunch of the features our server will have:

 

 

PVE:

Server specs:
-1 Server
-200 Slots
-4096x4096 map - http://andistyr.github.io/wu-map/

-40k mobs

 

The Team

 

The Team is playing Wurm Online since now more than 8 years and this mostly excessively. Furthermore it also happens that both Dominikk and myself are versed in programming and specially Dominikk has already impressively shown some great features. Combined we have a service record that pretty much covers every server and gameplay aspect, we slayed Dragons on snowy peaks, fought great battles on land and see, laid siege to impressive fortresses, made a living as merchants, worked as a low level staff member for some time, hosted events and constructed dozen of villages. This experience gives us a really good understanding of how this game works, not just mechanically, but also how it can excite you every time again.

 

Dominikk, Sklo, Engineer 

 

Everyone is dedicated to make this work and guarantee the best wurming experience.

 

Dominikk is working as Linux and Windows server admin for a living and is determined to keep your progress save. He put down a backup plan so you can see how serious we take it.

 

Data Safety

 

Backups will happen every 3 hours daily and every Monday there will be a weekly backup.

They will be stored local on the server in Germany and all backups are transferred to a server in Austria about 800km away too.

Further more we keep daily backups up to one month and weekly backups up to 6 months. So if something goes wrong we likely can restore ingame items up to 6 months.

Not gonna lie, looks good. And seeing you as the lead of it gives me the idea it will be a good server judging by how tech-smart you are on a lot of the games issues.

I have a question though, the no priest penaltys, what really stops (or it intended?) that everyone becomes a priest? And at that point, what really is the point when everyone has it?

Not really against that part, I'm just curious as to the idea behind it.

Hope all works good for you. :)

Nobody can multibox so it would be a pain to have a priest alt. So my idea is remove the priest penalties on PVE only so everyone who wants to be, can be a priest too, without needing to switch between accounts. 

 

Yeah I hope that too :) thanks

Yeah but I would prefer the removal of the priest penalties :)

 

 

Thanks, my Head GM Engineer is doing a great job. :)

 

 

UPDTAE

 

  • Added Backup concept:

 

Backups:

 

I am working as Linux and Windows server admin, next to working on my own little company as Android developer. So I know how important backups are and so I want to give also my players the feeling of security.

Backups will happen every 3 hours daily and every Monday there will be a weekly backup.
They will be stored local on the server in Germany and all backups are transfered to a server in Austria about 800km away too.
Further more we keep daily backups up to one month and weekly backups up to 6 months. So if something goes wrong we likely can restore ingame items up to 6 months.

Is this server up yet?

 

No sorry :)

We are still preparing to have a perfect sever start.

It will be up next Sunday, we try to do midnight, so sunday is the first "full" day of our server.

Um, without meaning to slightly derail the thread, I just wanted to ask, how did you get the crops to never rot? I'd be extremely interested in getting that mod for my creative server. Would you be willing to share that?


Nevermind, I found a thread explaining how to do this!


 


Also, sounds like a great server! Sadly I barely have enough time to play my own creative one as it is, but I wish you and everyone else who decides to play here the best of luck and lots of fun! :D

Yes we will search GMs and CMs but I can't say how many yet. This will be up to my Head GM Engineer mainly, but of course he will prefer applications from helpful, experienced and friendly players for sure.

I've always wanted to play on a server where everyone starts at the same time and so I don't feel behind (at least right from the start).  Do you need to do anything special to get on your list of people?  I didn't see anything on here or your forum about applying.

@Gronkh:  Thanks :) We are doing our best. Also have a look at the live map, the spawn area on the NW coast is growing daily :)


 


 


@JadeKC: The server will be free to join for everyone without signing up or anyting else. GMs and CMs will have to apply for a position, we will post some details about how to apply here in this thread and on our forum soon.
