Storage for archaeology fragments

26 posts in this topic

First off - thank you devs! - I'm having too much fun with the new skills and have uncovered lots and lots of fragments.  Some of them are going to take a long time to find enough to restore the whole thing and the fragments take decay in storage, even on deed.

Not sure if it's already being planned or not but some way to store the fragments are going to be essential down the line! Something unique for archaeology, similar to the alchemist cupboard for dyes, themed appropriately (maybe like a display cabinet?) as I know of a number of people who's made dedicated buildings for archaeology already :)

That's right, I'm planning my own Archeology Office and I'd love to have possibility to storage it, or even display. Also it doesn't make so much sense, that fragments were laying in the ground for years, maybe ages! And then these fragments decays within a week once collected.

Curios.   Let's introduce display cases already.  Cause let's face it, we're all materialistic in this wurmian fantasy!

I was considering that maybe we ould preserve identified fragments - until the completion of an item - wrapping them in some sort of waxed paper (/me looks sad at her useless 3k beeswax in the bsb and counting), and for extra protection, stored in a container like Kasumi and the rest of people suggested, an Archaeologist cupboard for fragments, display cases for finished smaller products.

 

There can be even more added to it, complete a series of objects and place them in display cases, and get a bonus of some sort / a special look for the room /  a plaque or something .. endless possibilities here.

 

But first: specialised storage, pretty please!!!

I have yet to see decay on these, but its only been a day or so, as for storage a storage rack unit with barrels/backpacks seems to be working for the 100s of parts I been piling up.

+1 I love seeing new storage containers in game and they'd come in really useful!

Yeah +1 we need something for sure, a magic chest shouldn't be the answer to everything.

 

I've suggested being able to bsb identified fragments, since you need so many to make items and they can decay otherwise.

Something akin to the Alchemist's Cupboard (maybe "Archaeologist Cupboard") in terms of looks (with its own unique theme of course!), with the ability to store 1 shelf per 20QL of fragments (so 100-500) without decay.

About a day or so in my cart on deed:

I wholeheartedly support having a storage 'display case' that would only be able to hold only fragments (both unidentified and ones identified but not completely combined yet) with very low or no decay while they're in it.  Perhaps the no decay inside case would be for on-deed only to lessen any database issues.  The max storage wouldb e 100 items, just like any other non-bin container.

 

Some fragments require just too many parts to combine or are rare enough that they won't be all found in enough time before decay that some container like this lessening or halting their decay is very necessary.

 

In the meantime, I've heard some players are creating storage alts for this purpose.  There should be no need to have that as the only option.

 

Until then, it looks like I'll have to keep my fragments in a backpack and pick it up to have it in my inventory when I log off as the having in inventory-preventing decay does work with archaeology fragments.  But please, it's alot more interesting for the whole archaeology concept in Wurm Online to have a display cabinet for them so your collection can be viewed by others whether you're logged off or not without a high risk of decay.

I'd bump to a 1000 items, with 10 slots using that container function they've been doing in previous items. 100 items seems pretty low, and I don't want to have tons of these cases on my deed.

I found the alchemists cupboard to be virtually useless for storing my dyes, as most of the batchs I make and want to keep are far more than the containers inside the cabinet hold.

 

On the other hand, the size of this cupboard is ideal for storing the half a dozen or dozen fragments you would actually want to keep as you slowly find more bits to add to them and this would make perfectly good sense.

 

There certainly is no need to have something just to store tens of thousands of pieces of junk on the other hand.

Low, flat, glass-topped display cases are standard for displaying real life artifacts. something similar for Wurm could be cool. Would be nice to use them to create a museum feel in any room or building, just for archaeology artifacts and other display pieces.

Part of why I've held off on pursuing archaeology after the first day of release is the realization that the fragments were going to take up such a large amount of space =/

+1. display case for completed items tho. a worktable would be more likely for the fragments. with storage on the side/top area. a bit like this? so can store and assemble them in there.6c37cb3bbb6287fbf6e80c5957fd9f59.jpg

Such a fun new feature, (kinda like scratching off lottery tickets, lol). Shame it's slightly marred by this little annoyance. I understand the need for decay on fragments if dropped in the wild or we'd soon have the lands littered with perma-frag piles.  On the other hand, it's a real drag to have our fragments just decaying away so fast. Not everyone can do archaeology all day every day to get more to combine em so they sit there and decay away. 

 

I know most of them are junk but it's still a drag. Archaeology should include preservation, as well as discovery and restoration. And I've already got a few frags of things I want to keep, that need an exorbitant number of pieces and so will take forever to get them all.  Guess it's time to make a couple more free alts to stand around in my archaeology house. lol. 

 

+1.  Better if we had some way to preserve them other than free alts or magic chests.

+1 as well.

 

As casual archeologist I'll never manage to get an ore lump, the first fragments are decayed before I find another one to combine them!

I mean the fragments were buried in moist earth for years, and then decay away in days when you put them in dry chest?

Way more than a half dozen to a dozen storage needed. This is what i have so far and it could take many months to complete them all.

I am pretty sure the database would appreciate some kind of bulk storage. I know from working on it I have about 1200 fragments on deed at the moment. This kind of stuff is why bulk storage was added to begin with.

well you could assemble that parts as you get them, but as a friend pointed out this makes it hard to trade parts piece for piece so I can see why a need for a 1k storage cupboard is needed

 

plus I just went through my friends wagon of rafts and back packs the other night, thousands of parts sitting there decaying and pulled out 500 parts just for tools/weapons/amor

 

so we really do need mass storage cupboards with many shelves 8)

 

display cases!
