Knarr island is a part of Grizzly Traders on our server Novus and consists of an awesome main building with 25 knarrs of all wood types parked around. A very creative building.

Big Server move - Completed

 

Today our servers were successfully moved to a completly new infrastructure providing a lot more performance and the abbility to expand Sklotopolis even further. The new servers using the newest generation of NVMe SSDs making sure that Sklotopolis will be fast, reliable and data safe for many years to come.

 

The move only caused a downtime for about 30-40 minutes, for moving 4 islands in total, which is officially the fastest move Wurm has ever seen. Thanks for my team for making such a fast move possible. 

 

Enjoy your time on Sklotopolis.

Small QoL Update

  • Low stamina will no longer increase your action time when working on actions, since this was very annoying and stressful while performing actions. When stamina is close to running out then the penalty will come back and you need to regain stamina. The times of calculating if it is smarter to queue 2 or 3 or 4 actions before resting should be a thing of the past with this change.
  • New players with playtime below 24 hours will be set to 100% food and 100% nutrition on login to make the start easier for them and give them some extra skillgain.
  • You can now farm, harvest, replant, sow 7x7 (radius of 3) tile wide areas at 90 skill in farming.
  • You can now cultivate 7x7 (radius of 3) tile wide areas at 90 skill in digging.

Happy Birthday Sklotopolis - 5 years

This weekend we celebrated 5 years of Sklotopolis, I never expected this server to last for such a long time.

Today 5 years ago Sklotopolis was just an almost vanilla world, which hasn't got any of the great features we are using today. Many hundreds of hours have been put into developing more than 100 different mods turning Sklotopolis in a unique place to play on. Even after all this time a big bunch of our features are still unique in the Wurm universe, nobody else was able to adopt our wide variety as of now.

Thanks to the great team behind me for helping managing the server, without you Sklotopolis wouldn't be where it is now.

And of course thanks to all our players for turning this project into such a big success story.

I am looking forward to the next 5 years, we still aren't finished, there are big things to come.

Congratulations.

 

I have played on another WU server for almost four years and I understand just how much work goes in to create a successful server. Your players are fortunate to have you and your team looking after them!

Merry Christmas Sklotopolis!

 

The Sklotopolis staff team wants to wish everyone of our players a merry christmas and a happy new year. As promised Santa will arrive at New Hope on Novus and Haven on Liberty tomorrow (23rd of December 2020) late afternoon (CET). But as usual you also can collect your gift from a christmas tree which you can craft yourself. This years christmas gift includes two items, something useful and something decorative, we hope you will enjoy your presents.

 

Thanks for being part of our wonderful community, considering this is a free time project for all of us you are the only reason why we are still working on this success story and improving it every day. Thanks for being a part of our unique server adventure.

 

Since some players will find this out for sure, you can get a present on both servers with two different accounts. But make sure that you DO NOT cross servers with an account which has already received a present on your origin server, otherwise you will only receive one gift.

Goodbye 2020

 

Good afternoon Sklotopolis :)

 

Some of you are already there, others are just a few hours behind. The year 2020 is ending and the server will celebrate. At midnight (CET) there will be fireworks, christmas lights and sparkles over all servers of Sklotopolis for about 30 minutes, leaving nice little coins behind for you to collect.

Happy Coin hunting and happy new Year.

 

We wish you all the best for the year 2021, hopefully things will get better in 2021.

Big stability improvements

 

Maybe you have noticed that our server was unstable on a few days in December 2020. For an unknown reason a potential dead lock, hidden in the Wurm Unlimited vanilla core, was triggered more often than it ever was triggered before, this could be related to some players having a bad connection or some other unidentified cause. Anyways, we could identify the deadlock bug along with some other issues. The main reasons for the bad stability were identified successfully and fixed, there has also been a problem with our network card driver which was unstable when it operated close to speeds of 1 Gbit/s (1000 Mbit/s) to or from the internet, just a small side effect when you are operating with such professional hardware. We worked hard over the Christmas holidays and had everything working out and stabilized with the begin of January 2021.

 

While it was hard to have a Wurm Unlimited server stable for 7 days with the big amount of players we have on our server before the improvements, it is now possible to have all our servers up and running for almost 28 days straight without any major issue or bigger lag spikes.

Update - More QoL changes

Another QoL update has been brought to you by Sklotopolis. Great feeling to see people hyping about a QoL update just because there was an announcement without any upcoming changelog released yet, they are just 100% sure that any QoL update on Sklotopolis will be awesome. This just shows how great our reputation is in really improving Wurm Unlimited in a way not many other modders and developers could achieve and how badly those QoL improvements are needed. Thanks for your trust.

The Sklotopolis staff team wishes every member of our community a happy easter. Thanks for being a part of our great world, without you all this wouldn't be such a successful story, which we can develope together. The easter bunny arrived around New Hope and Spawn Camp West on Novus and around Haven, Genesis and New Town on Liberty dropping shiny little easter eggs on it's way. Good luck in the egg hunt :)
