Why does Freedom gets a CA overhaul and epic is still left with the horrible system in place? Without a merged CA help channel we will never ever see new people on epic.

Because the CA changes for freedom are a simple setting we can do ingame.

 

Addressing the Epic situation requires a lot more, and will take more work. That's not to say we arent working towards a resolution with the issues epic faces with CA help, just that they're different.

So something like this?

I think there are a lot of people out there (myself included) who wishes that we had - as one of the wall types - just the "sides" of the arched walls. That way we could make very tall openings and stack as many "arched wall sides" pieces as we like to make super tall openings.

 

+1 Please please please make this happen-- the ones presented are definitely a step in the right direction but that horrible middle bar is the biggest eye sore

Hear ye hear ye! and welcome to the latest edition of the Valrei International, filling you in on what's been going on and what's in store for all Wurmians!

 

Make a date!


With final testing on siege weapons underway and the new housing in the works we're able to set the date for the next update! Pending any issues with the implementation of the graphics we have scheduled the next update for the 13th of April, so make sure you're all stocked up and ready to roll!

Spot something?

 

Community Assistant admin changes


We've had a few delays in pushing this out, but we're making a few changes to CA administration and CA help. Lead Chat Moderator Shrimpiie will be taking over the admin duties of the CA team, bringing them back into the fold of the LCM team and he will be handling the application processes from now.

We'll also be looking at taking steps towards merging CA help across all freedom servers in order to ensure that we have the absolute best coverage as we can. This means that if a CA is on anywhere they'll be able to answer questions and provide support, and also means we can track the helpful players and drag recruit them into the CA team!

 

The transition has been a tad delayed so I'd like to apologise to those who are waiting to hear back on their CA applications, and we'll work on having them all processed as soon as possible.

Sign of the times

Next update will also include text on signs in WO! they've been in WU for some time, so we're glad to see them come to WO as well

New tiles!
Well, last week teased the new tiles, but showed no graphics, so I'm pleased to share the new graphics here!

tiles.png
Those of you with a keen eye will notice that the sandstone slab floor is the old stone slab floor, the new stone slab floor for houses will have the same grey stone texture as the tile slabs, and sandstone slab floors in houses will have the current stone slab textures.

 

Based on feedback concerns about sandstone availability, I can confirm that sandstone will now be a vein type, and can be created with a transmutation rod!

 

Siege weapon testing

Seige weapon testing continues over the weekend with release planned for next week, so make sure to continue testing and giving feedback, there's plenty of supplies to do so on the PvP server and PvE server, if you need anything else, just post on the thread or jump in IRC!

 

Valrei spawn tweaks
Next update will tweak how valrei creatures spawn, instead of spawning 10 in one area, they will be spawned in a wider area across the server, avoiding the congestion of many in one place becoming too hard to overcome. This will hopefully improve the valrei creatures being somewhat annoying on epic as we work on addressing them individually in a future update

 

Community Content Contest

So with the new houses coming next week I'm sure you're all itching to get your hands on them and build them all, but what will you use?
It just so happens that I have a very shiny trowel that needs a new home, and I'm giving you all the chance to win it!

To win this beauty, we'll be having a contest for this weeks community content, it's caption time!

Simply provide a caption to this image, and whoever wins will be the brand new owner of this supreme steel trowel, with a 100(!) BotD cast.

We'll also be running this on Facebook, so get on there and submit your captions too!

 

That's it for this week, I hope you're all busy preparing for the deed remodeling! Until then though, keep on Wurming!

Retrograde & the Wurm team.

You steal my gauntlet....I steal your horn! Oh wait...this didnt have my gauntlet! Next!

Not possible, a wall section just missing doesnt exactly make sense, and would mean permissions on that building don't exist.

Would be even better if the CA help channels from epic gets merged with the freedom CA help. Then it even gets moderated (which doesnt happen now coz there is no CA's) which is a win win.

A whole wall missing - that's understandable, but what about the option of having wall types that work as extensions of arched walls, as below?

That arch is three tiles wide, so a double arch without pillar is possible
