Wurm Unlimited beta 1.9.2.7

Recommended Posts


Greetings Wurmians!

Todays update is a little bit of a bittersweet one, marking the end of official content support for Wurm Unlimited. Over the past four years we've introduced many new features and shared many things. It's no secret that the mods brought to Wurm have made the game far more than we have with the vanilla version, and this update makes a few things easier for them to implement mods, both mechanics, client AND graphical.

We'll continue to work with modders and address any major issues raised and of course, Wurm Unlimited is still on the store and we will still be supporting those with questions, technical issues and the like.

With that said, these notes include a guide on how to create a resource pack, easy addition of mods (just place them in the mods folder!)

We'd also like to thank ago for giving us permission to integrate his moad loader, as well as those who worked on it and provided updates to it as well.

Wurm Unlimited wouldn't be the game it is without you all, and we deeply thank you for that.

And as always, Keep on Wurming!

 

Added ago’s modloader to the server and client.

  • You can now, as previously using the modloader, put mods in “mods” folder in both server and client files. You can find mods at https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/forum/259-mods/
  • Installing mods is at your own risk and can contain potentially dangerous code, make sure to verify their origins prior to using them.
     

Added user resource packs

So if a server and client already had his mod loader, then it’s no change? My Hoster uses a special line to point to his patched client launcher so does this have to change now to just point to the normal Wurm launcher and no need for the special patched one?

All hosters will most likely break completly with this update. So if they install the update you will no longer be able to start up your server, if they are not prepared for that.

They need to give you new instructions on handling the new situation plus they need to fix their setup so the modloaders are not fighting eachother.

When they updated, the server started fine but acted like the mod folder was empty. 
 

not sure why, so I had them revert back

Ago's modloader updated independently of WU in the past. What happens if a new feature is needed for the modloader now that it's integrated with WU? Since WU is no longer being updated are we now effectively stuck with the current version of the modloader as well?

 

I haven't seen this discussed anywhere so I would appreciate comments around it.

The modloader & javassist will be loaded as a jar lib.

Glad to see the modloader myself, will help with my work on a texture pack for WU ^^

Just also sad that we won't see content updates, especially some of the recent stuff WO has gotten :(

They don't want money sucked away from their Steam WO so they abandon WU and hope it dies? Don't really understand the reasoning myself.

Silly me, I figured the resource packs were for on the server, like current serverpacks mod that get pushed to the client if they have the client serverpacks mod.

 

Just did some testing and yeah the resource packs go on client machines, so if you did this as a server admin everyone who joined your server would need to d/l and install your resource packs.

Yup. Would be the same as it is now with players trying to install their own mods and such. A surprising amount of people just do not know how so they miss out on all the hard work people put into making the new model or textures.

since all the collisions are client side, this could ruin pvp really. a resource pack for client that makes all doors including mine doors nothingness means a player could literally just walk into enemy base like it was nothing.

just checked and my current server is version 1.9.1.5 

did this patch end up getting released at any stage in the last 2 months or is it still in Beta?

The update is unfinished and bugged, releasing it would be ridiculous.
