Rules

  1. Don't be a jerk.
  2. Despite BL theme, both servers are PVE server. Griefing and harassment are not allowed.
  3. Players are responsible for securing their crap. Everything not properly secured is considered free game.
  4. If you find a bug - report it, don't abuse it.
  5. All client mods are allowed as long as they aren't actively disruptive to the community or the server itself.
  6. See rule #1

 

Support the Server

 

Want to support the server? Consider donating some money to it's upkeep! All leftovers will be used to buy beer to maintain my sanity after digging through rolfcode.

Seems like some people had issues accessing the live map if their system had working IPV6, due to a slight misconfiguration on my side. This is now fixed.

Welcome to everyone that joined the server over it's first 2 days. We now have a few player deeds, a road in the works and even a single classic noob shanty near spawn. :P

 

Updates 14/02/2016

  • Fixed an issue with crates destroying items over their vanilla capacity (blame rolfcode!)
    • From the logs it looks like only some dirt was lost to this, but if you somehow lost something you care about - open a ticket and I'll replace it.
  • Added server to wurm-unlimited.com (see banner in the OP) - Please vote if you like this server.

I'm also planning another quick restart either later today or tomorrow to apply a few more tweaks and fixes and update some software on the server.

Not sure if it was my client or your server but:

The server denied your connection attempt for the following reason: <Error while authenticating the user with steam.>

I've seen this error myself playing on other servers... don't think anyone figured out what's causing yet. Nothing useful in server or client logs, just steam being derpy. It fixes itself after a while, switching steam to offline mode then back online helps sometimes too.

Another small update:

  • Fixed max carried weight increase not working correctly
    • Max weight should be 1.5x normal, with slowdown applied at 75% and 90% of that.
  • Farming, Animal Husbandry and Animal Taming skillgain buffed a bit.
  • Added some debugging code to steam authentication code to maybe shed some light on those "Error while authenticating the user with steam" errors

 

@akaedis please try logging in again when you can, either it will work now or give some more useful debug info.

For people who want to know the basic amounts you can times your Body STR by to get your max and your slow down amounts I listed them below.

 

For max carry weight 10.5 x STR

For First Slowdown Mark its 7.875 X STR

For the Second Slowdown its 9.45 x STR

I've been looking at the ore distribution and i really don't like it. Everything except iron is way too regional, there's way too little gold and silver and way too much iron/copper/lead... to the point that in many regions you wouldn't be able to mine more than a few tiles in one direction without bumping into a vein, making any future tunnels way too much pain in the arse.

 

I'm planning to regenerate the cave layer in the next few days, once i'm sure i can do it without breaking everything and i'm happy with the distribution we get.

 

Existing mines should stay intact, and uncovered veins will be kept, but everything else (including prospected but not uncovered veins) will be nuked.

 

If you want to keep something that you prospected it might be a good idea to uncover it now.

It is a little weird, isn't it.  The on-deed mine I dug has three lead tiles, two iron tiles, and a copper tile, all in a four-tile-long tunnel (including the entrance).  I got lucky and the one rock tile I uncovered was between two lead tiles.

Zombies - maybe, if i can figure out how to convince them to not be friendly to players :P

 

Not sure about valrei mobs, most of them are way too much pain in the arse for my taste. 

 

As an idea, i might make an area (possibly one of the islands) with increased chances of treasure chests and maybe moon metals - and make valrei mobs spawn there.

Mine layer has been regenerated to be more reasonable. As planned, the existing mines and all uncovered veins were untouched. I don't think i broke anything but in case i did - tell me about it here or via /support :P

 

In other news the mod that fixes action times was updated to fix a small bug (i will release the mod for others soon™).

 

The number of spirit shadows at Irkalla was getting out of hand, so i nuked most of them. No idea why they keep spawning, probably some bug somewhere *sigh*.

 

Edit: for those wondering, the old mine layer looked like this: http://imgur.com/PJiLNdv ... yeah.

love all the mods in this server, it has a nice feel and you can get setup quickly and you have the option to hunt in spooky mycelium forests x)

 

bug report: logged in today and there was lots of guards again at spawn and i think grass is quickly taking back the mycelium, also couldnt meditate on the rug there, not sure if its a bug or deed setting

Yeah i have no idea WTF is going on with guards at spawn, they somehow manage to lose their association with the deed, so the deed spawns more, then the new ones lose their association and so forth. It must be a bug somewhere in vanilla code (none of my mods change anything in that area) but so far i haven't found what causes it.

 

I have a fix in the works for grass overtaking mycelium, i'll apply it today hopefully. Wurm really doesn't like myc on PVE servers, i've fixed it in one place when i opened the server (otherwise it would all rapidly revert to grass) but missed a few other checks.

 

The rug should work... just spawned a new character and he was able to meditate. You can't gain skill above 20 without choosing a path, but you should be able to meditate.
