Dear Wurmians

 

Things have been a little quiet on the news front, and I'm incredibly sorry, and to make it up to you all, I've gone combing through buddas desk, and aside from all the empty bourbon bottles, I found some really interesting things, so lets see it!

 

Personal goals

For a long time now personal goals have been a feature that can be quite frustrating to some, with hard to attain goals vs simply getting lucky with RNG. We outlined our desires to improve this system but also explained that a large danger is how the personal goals system draws the goals, without actually saving them. This meant that any changes to achievements could lead to everyone having their goals re-rolled, causing countless headaches.

 

With a lot of careful work, and repeated testing, we're now able to address this issue, and will be removing some of the more tricky diamond personal goals. If you previously had one of these the system will now generate a new achievement of a equal tier. 

 

The following personal goals will be removed:

  • Create fantastic item
  • Conquer the world
  • Rule a kingdom
  • Become a demigod
  • Become an arch mage
  • Become a planeswalker
  • Become a shadowmage
  • Become a magician
  • Mine a fantastic gem

 

In the long term, we are working towards a complete overhaul of the way personal goals work, and will be removing the current system in its entirety. If you wish to receive the winner title and rewards for completing your personal goals, we'd advise working towards that, as the opportunity may be gone later.

 

THINGS! ON TABLES!

 

Long long long desired, (and even appearing as a mod) is the ability to place things on tables and shelves. We've wanted this as both players and devs for a long time now, and we're really proud to be able to unveil it today!

It's functionality is directly tied with placing objects, so to put an item on a table, simply right click > place. then as you hover the green outline over the table, it will display on the table. Moving the table around (or even picking it up) will carry the object with it.

 

The list of items that will be able to have items placed on it are the following:

  • square table
  • round table
  • dining table
  • bed
  • bench (stone)
  • bedside table
  • open fireplace
  • canopy bed
  • tripod table
  • high bookshelf
  • low bookshelf
  • round marble table
  • rectangular marble table

 

We'll also be introducing three new items:

  • Empty low shelf
  • Empty high shelf
  • Bar top

This feature has huge design impact, and will really open up possibilities about showing off and decorating. We're extremely excited to see it finally come, and hope you are too. Once it's launched, we'll be running a room designing competition, so think about what you'd like to do with your decorations!


 

Introducing the content creation club Valrei Entertainment Network!

Last news we had a small competition for suggestions to title our new streamer support program, and there were a ton of great ones, we eventually settled on the Valrei Entertainment Network by CIRAY, as the name.

 

We've had a few applicants and will be reviewing them all over the coming week or so, expect an announcement in relation to it soon!

 

Animal crates

A little feature no one really knew about that we haven't told anyone about is animal crates! (just kidding, we don't have amnesia) And we're readying up for some public testing with them over this coming weekend and maybe a little next week.

Still just a rat in a cage

 

We'll be looking to check server crossings mostly, as our wonderful tester Alectrys has been hard at work breaking them in every other way. We'll have a thread up in public testing detailing everything we're looking for, so I hope you're keen for them!

 

Now, I know you're all wondering "How long until this comes in?" and I have good news! These features should be in with the next update! As for the hard date on that it's not yet firm, but we are planning for this and more in time for wurms 12th anniversary, so buckle up!

 

There's a lot to get ready for, from building tables, to working out which personal goals you want to achieve, to comforting your animals before moving them to the next server, so you all get busy and make sure to come on to test!

 

Until then though, keep on Wurming!

Retrograde & the Wurm team

If you complete it before the update, it will remain as your personal goal as completed.

 

Only those that have one of the above ones as incomplete will have it removed and rolled as something else.

If the dev team wishes to sponsor the last remaining tome, I will do that for sure ❤️ 

If not and I get "imp an item to 99QL or higher" I will personally throw @Retrogradeat all of you devs ;) 

 

With love 😘

Remove drain a settlement too please. While it's bad enough 25% of my goals are pvp for a pve player, ones requiring extended time on a pvp server just aren't gonna happen.

@Retrograde Dyable weapons and other equippables, when? Having partially-dyed equipment is awful. As is the inconsistent dying for seryll helmets.

Thanks for removing this, but some goals are still broken, for instance create 5000 litres of wine.

Awesome news, great work guys! Love all of it, except maybe not losing the pvp goals for pve players, so mine won't ever be completed :)

What about those who already won the game? Will we lose titles? If not, will we be able to win a game within new system? Will there be a new title to separate new and old winners?
