PRIZES! The Awesome Potato PC Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi Potato fans

 

Do you have an old computer running Wurm?

 

Retrograde's comment about 'playing on Potatoes' in tonight's WurmOnlineOfficial twitch stream got me to thinking -

 

How many of us are currently playing on 'potatoes' - old computers with old graphics cards, or maybe just computers that have to be on low graphics settings due to overheating or other problems...

 

...or maybe you prefer the performance or visibility on low graphics settings?

 

It's snow joke, really

I remember the first laptop I used to play Wurm had to use the minimum graphics settings, it was just too old. 

The screen was so bad that in winter with the low-detail snow textures, I really could not tell the difference between round cobblestones and rough cobblestones, in fact I thought they were interchangeable - I thought 'round' and 'rough' were a typo and meant the same thing.

As I could see no visible difference between the two, I just used whatever materials were to hand, and when my courtyard was complete, it all looked fine and uniform ...until I got a new laptop and of course realised that it looked like a dog's dinner.

 

I would love to hear your anecdotes, and see your screenies.

 

Here's your chance to show us what a potato can do! :)

Win a Potato Prize!

 

Below is an unedited screenshot of Wurm in glorious low-resolution!

 

What is it? The first person to correctly identify what this is, will receive a rare vegetable in the mail! ;)  

 

If you can reproduce this image - or give a close match - please post your screenshots below - or if you have another much cooler image - please post that instead!

 

The poster with the best screenie (in my humble opinion) by the end of Sunday 15th March 2020 will receive a large crate of 99ql woad - winner to pickup from U18 Deliverance! :D

Isn't it a willow trees leaves? Reminds me of it but it's been so many years since I played on low settings proper. I used to play on a GeForce 9600 which was budget in like, 2008? And I was using it around 2013.

 

I'm positive it's tree leaves of some type though

Yes - it is Madnath - a random rare vegetable is heading your way!

 

Good call CreZ - the willow leaves work in the same way as a trellis..

 

This is looking through some holes in the willow leaves where you can see light shining through similar holes on the other side of the tree.

 

Well done!

 

Please everyone post your cool pix and let me guess what they are! :D

Ah, I guess you're not running in true potato mode. That's why I couldn't recognize them.

Here is one of my favorites. It's not much of a mystery though:
