Newspring? More like -a better view-spring! (I'm sorry)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! 

 

it's time for another Wurmian eye for the starter deed... guy

 

We're looking for players to form groups and submit design ideas for the Newspring starter deed, just like we've done for other towns.

 

The layout is fairly simple, the deed is a set size of 41x41, and has a large perimeter, we're looking for a design that shows off what's possible in the game, as well as give it that community style for the island that truly belongs to the seals.

 

We'll be taking entries for the next two weeks, then you will all have the opportunity to vote on which one you want to represent your little rock pizza with seal toppings.

 

Entries will need to have a deedplanner file of the proposal, a few screenshots from deedplanner, and a little blurb detailing your proposal. You don't have to worry about materials, as we'll provide them all. (Assembly required, extra nails and shafts may be found at the bottom of the box)

 

The current deed plan is available here:

So grab a friend or three, and get planning!

 

Entry timeframe closes when this counter expires:

do we need to keep some buildings? like the current trader building or all can go boom so long as new ones are put in place to fill the void?

edit: also any idea how deep the rock layer might be? or no need to worry as tnt (or equivalent.. moonshine anyone?) will be provided with the materials

You can remove all buildings and even have the traders moved. 

 

Rock Layer I'll leave up to someone else to answer on.

all buildings can go boom, rock layer can be adjusted.

Here is my vision of Newsprings.

 

https://pastebin.com/h5N2uc1T

The idea was to demonstrate a lot of what can be done in Wurm without making it look too patch work, whilst retaining a aesthetically pleasing feel. I tried to make it functional by having buildings which serves a purpose, such as a work building which houses most of the harder to make tools like kilns and smelters and loom and such so new players could always default to the starter town when in need of such things. An Inn to house the bar tender NPC that feeds newbs and a trade house near the docks for the trader NPC.


The portal would go in place of the spirit gate.

 

Load it up in Deed Planner, screenshots don't do it any justice in my opinion.

Newspring Makeover

 

I would like the starter deed to be open and colourful, with many different looks and sights for inspiration.

All highways lead up with a pleasant slope to the token and main assets (traders, bartender, mailbox), creating a low pyramid with terraced quarters, that show different aspects of wurm living. Sixteen towers are connected at tree height with rope bridges, from where every part of the deed can be overseen. The deed blends in with the forest at perimeter, but can easily be recognized from afar.

From the token area four entrance buildings lead into each part, featuring the archeology statues of the related main gods inside. More decoration will be added to give detail to workshops, the entrance buildings also will show related tools and furniture to the aspect of the quarter. A little downtown area contains ‘The Drunken Seal’, a friendly inn and place to rest.

I am a Newspring guy since i started playing several years ago. The plan was shared and discussed with friends and neighbours of the Newspring Alliance, that offered help to build our new starter deed.

 

Where are the seals?

The mine entrance leads to an illuminated grotto at water height, where the mysterious Sealspring is located. It seems that seals that roam the island derive from this point.
