Sklotopolis goes Wurm Online 

 

With the last Wurm Online update a few changes which were implemented by the devs of Sklotopolis went live on the official Wurm Online servers.

 

I have to say that we are all proud that we became a little part of such an amazing game :) I want to thank every player/CA/CM/GM/DEV within both communities for making this possible. It is AWESOME :)

Been checking out several away servers over the past week, and I have to say that my favorite is definitely Sklotopolis! Great map, nice community, love that there are ways to make silver in-game and that its F2P. Still searching for the perfect place to settle but I'm looking forward to making this my WU home. :)

Just not enough NPC's for the map size. apart from that I enjoyed my time there.
You could walk for miles without seeing one NPC. It needs to be more than doubled lol current count.

the entire south of the map is flooded with them. North has so many people and killing all day long, is southerners literally can't keep up the killing. So we're getting more and more down here. (Which I'm not complaining, I love mobs :D ) but if you want NPC's, go away from where 95% of the server is :) 

 

I highly suggest everyone to come try the recent update. Saying it's awesome would be a understatement. And if you would like any help getting set up (or info about the server) pm me here or on the sklotopolis forums! 

 

Major or thanks to the devs (Sklo, Dominik, and Engineer) for the update and the server itself. You've provided me (and many others it seems!) a perfect place when I need a alternate place from WO :D 

 

(and I can't not thank Jaede for that freaking awesome map he's made us, that deserves special thanks)

Very casual on and off Wurm Online player who couldn't be happier to have found a home on Skotopolis :) So many of the issues I had playing WO that kept me from progressing very far have been solved by the advent of Wurm Unlimited and time and effort put into creating this awesome server for our enjoyment. I only joined a couple days ago but already feel welcome and productive despite my newbieness.

 

A special thanks to Melketh for scooping me up and giving me a place to putter around and make a nuisance of myself while I get used to the game ;) He already had to install lamps in his mine so I don't get lost down there forever lol. Looking forward to meeting more Skotopolis citizens at the upcoming Imp-a-long!

Don't forget that we have a lot more players on peak times and a huge amount of items in the database. We hadn't much issues but the issues we had were 2-3 times a day up to 3 minutes lag spike. And with 60+ people online on peak times, this wasn't fun at all. There have been about 3 deaths per lag spike...

 

Furthermore there are so much creatures on the server, in some areas you really have great hunting.

This is a great server!  I've been a long time WO player and couldn't wait for WU.  I tinkered around on my own LAN server and quickly missed the sense of community, so I found your server and gave it a shot.  It has everything I wanted in a server and more. The dirt dropping like rocks is AMAZING!  Thanks for the work you put into this and look for me to be a long time player here!

Christmas is coming to Sklotopolis

 

This weekend we managed to finish our christmas code, it took about 20 work hours until all was set up and we were sure that there are no exploits we have to fear.

 

On December 23rd, 2015 at 4PM CET christmas will reach our server :) There will be one christmas present per SteamID, which can be collected from santa at New Town or at your own christmas tree. The developers will take a little break during Christmas time, we plan on joining some village on Sklotopolis and play with you guys a bit. Not sure if we will stay anonymous though :P 

But I am sure we will have a wonderful time with many events and great memories of our first christmas on Sklotopolis.

 

Also don't forget the impalong! I am really looking forward to it.

Event - Christmas Impalong

Bugfix

 

  • Items have been restored
  • Sleep bonus has been added
  • All items were turned to 0 damage


There might be some items missing as we never can restore 100%, just report the rest, shouldn't be too much though. 50k+ items have been successfully restored. 

 

 

 

 

Merry Christmas to all our players :) - Enjoy our christmas present! Available at Santa in New Town or at every Christmas Tree

I hope everyone had a wonderful time during Christmas on our server :) Especially we had some time to get in touch with community, making some pictures etc.

 

Make sure you don't miss the big New Year light show on Jan 1st 2016, around midnight!

 

I want to share some screenshots of the last days with you, Santa's present this year was a spyglass.

 

(sadly santa client bug wasn't fixed)

This looks incredible! I just found you, so I will be giving it a try soon. I've been playing with my own server solo and had a custom made map up and running, but it was a little boring by myself so this will be much more fun. Now the true struggle, as I start an online masters degree Jan 1 at the same time as I find this?!? Oh boy...

 

I expect I'll be on several times a week for an hour or two, hope to make a little homestead and will be happy to help out others if anyone needs assistance. I still don't know some of the mechanics like breeding but have some of the basics down. See you all there!
