Patch Notes 06/JUL/17

Recommended Posts

  • Wurmian dendrologists have noted that the girth of Olive and Chestnut trees has diminished. (olive and chestnut tree trunks are now thinner by 60%)
  • Cave entrances can now be reinforced, prepared, and paved like other cave floors.
  • Priests that can dig without going faithless can now dredge.
  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue where keys ended up in a bugged state if they were inside a bank or mailbox when the lock was destroyed.  Now the keys should be destroyed as well.
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug that caused cave ceilings to examine as floors and require remove reinforcement permissions when above a reinforced floor.
  • Bugfix: Hota should no longer break if there is a server restart during an active event – remaining pillars should spawn seconds before the shutdown.
  • Bugfix: Fixed the issue causing decayed organic material from being stuck in a your bank taking up a slot until server restart.
  • Bugfix:  Fix for some underground bridges causing errors resulting in players rubberbanding as they travel across the bridge.
  • Bugfix: Possible fix for Epic to Xanadu first time teleports so that you end up  at the starter town chosen instead of a random starter town. (Fix did not work)
  • Bugfix:  Metallic Liquid will now come in a potion bottle when looted and will actually work when ‘smeared’ onto an item.
    • The imbue will start with 100 power, no matter what your actual skill is as long as the action succeeds.
    • Protect against items “cracking” 5 times, lose 20 power from the imbue every time it “forms cracks”
    • Protect against a single shatter. As long as the power of the imbue even exist listed on the item, it will be protected.
    • You can NOT smear another potion to “refill” the lost power, effect must be gone.

That's a relief.  I've always hated how big the olive trees were.  I never wanted them anywhere near my deed.  Maybe now, I'll be able to tolerate them. :)

that should address half of the woes concerning collision once it's back on. 
Thank you for the compassion.

In truth, there's too much to say thank you for,  this is a big update.

No mention of the buggy bridges, but I assume the fix went live as my underground bridge now works just fine.

Wonderful news :)  Any chance of oak trees being given similar treatment ?  they are somewhat over large atm.

Keep oaks the way they are. I am assuming the smaller olive and chestnut trees is to prepare for reintroducing tree collisions. Oaks never had an issue since they kill all the trees around them leaving space to walk around.

 

I love my huge oak tree!

Oak trees are the right size, given that they clear out a space around them. They could use some tweaking so they are a bit more in the ground instead of almost floating above it.

Slowly but surely, this game's getting better every day.

Thanks for your hard work dev team. Despite how often I complain, really appreciate all the new improvements that have been coming out recently.
Now just add slope limit to NPC and fix up PVP a bit, I promise I'll never whine again. :P

Floating corona seems to be fixed on aqua Lady HOTA statue but not red dragon, still floats up above. This is on unstable btw.

how come they don't hire you :P

$$$

There are some extremely talented people that play Wurm, but have full time jobs, so could not be hired away, on Code Club's budget.

 

Pretty sweet patch here!  So much goodness.  We are on an insane roll of great fixes and upgrades.  Such a difference from just one year ago.  Huge props to the dev team.

The infamous paint render bug on the unstable client has now vanished.
(painted walls became unpainted if you traveled more than 15 tiles away from the surface)
I have tested this with post processing on and off, both positive.
I have waited so very long for that. Thank you so much for fixing it. 
Also, the mines are looking wonderful, those of us that aren't suffering the blank screen phenomenon. 
Perfectly lit
Still getting the flickering problem if more than one colour is used but it's bearable now that the lighting is subtle.
