The Fox's Den [PVE] Revival | 3x Action, 10x Action

Recommended Posts

Fuschia


Fuschia has been underpopulated since it was launched and it's format didn't really work for Wurm Unlimited's current PVP landscape, so at this point and after long consideration, I will be making some major changes to the server as a whole, hopefully making it easier to get into PVP for new players and veterans alike.

 

The Future of Fuschia
Fuschia format is to change drastically, creating more of a pick up and play style without to much worry about losing gear from other servers and some major key changes are going to going to go in effect upon it's relaunch.

 

Skills and items will be entirely separate from PVE clusters, meaning you will have a different skillset on Paradise and Fuschia which leads us to some changes that will be only effective on Fuschia;

  •  Skills will start at 50
  •  Starter tools will set at 60-70ql.
  •  Skill ramping will differ from Paradise/Viridian drastically to accommodate a faster playstyle.
  •  Deed upkeep will cost less however still remain to encourage deed raiding and partaking in certain events that grant money.
  •  Animal bounties will be quadrupled for a certain amount of time after server launch.
  •  Deed tax will be disabled due and will only be active on PVE servers.
  •  Monthly silver will still exist on PVP servers, however it's amount will be slightly less.
  •  Action timers will be tripled.
  •  Full player looting and raiding will remain the same on Fuschia.

Players will also be able to create portals on Paradise and Viridian to transfer to Fuschia on their own deeds and will work as such;

  •  Players can create portals on their deeds to teleport to Fuschia and vice-versa.
  •  Each time a player uses a portal, they will teleport back to their last used portal unless it has been destroyed or decayed away. If there is no portal, the player will be teleported to their respective starter deed until one is created on that server.
  •  Skillsets and items are separate from PVE servers and Fuschia meaning also deeds, permissions and non-drop items will not transfer.
  •  Skills that were gained on their respective server will remain on that server until transferred back to it.
  •  Players will be able to sail to Fuschia, however items and skill sets will still be seperate.

Just as a side note, due to how Wurm's intraserver code works, I cannot make this a separate login server will still maintaining the server within the server cluster. We want to create a new experience within the cluster without taking away playerbase as a whole.

 

Some other noteworthy changes are as follows;

  •  Randomly generated villages will pop up on the map from time to time to create some goals to raid, loot to obtain, and some revenue to gain for your deeds.  
  •  Uniques will be buffed drastically and become more of a challenge to take down.
  •  Map is subject to change and will most likely be increased to 2048x2048
  •  Player Made Kingdoms are a possibility at this point but will need some changes to their creation requirements due to lower server population.

All of these things mentioned are subject to change as launch grows closer, and suggestions aswell as constructive criticism are welcomed. I wish to create a better play experience out of Fuschia that is more appealing to a pick up and go playstyle without some of the risk involved of loosing everything you worked for on PVE servers, creating more of it's own play experience.

 

Let me know what you all think and I'll keep you updated on changes and progress as it happens.

Server Updates

  • Pet Card Bundles have been added to a special voucher merchant at each starter town.
  • A voucher merchant at each starter town has been added selling strange special items.
  • Stat ramping has changed and follows a different ramping curve now. More Details below.

 

Vouchers
A new voucher system has been added and works as a new currency that players can obtain from making donations, doing certain server events, slaying dragons and gaining certain achievements!
While this system is still a work in process and will have many new features added to it over time, I've included some interesting items that you can buy and use now once you get vouchers!

 

Buff Cards
Certain specialized items and buffs could be purchased from a 'Voucher merchant'  for vouchers at each spawn town, some of which are:
Rarity Chance Up, Bounty Increase Up, Cast Chance Up, and many more!

These buffs will only last for a certain amount of time but will offer a marked increase in an aspect for a certain amount of time.


Some items were also added such as: Source Compounds, Nametags, Tower Converter Cards and much more!

Ofcourse, there are many more to be added in the future!

 

Stat ramping
Skill multipliers for body, mind and soul stats have changed. Previously they scaled with the overall skill ramping modifier that was based on skill, that has now changed.

 

  • Body Strength, Control, and Mind Speed Skill Modifier is now 2.0x at 40 skill and scales downward the higher it becomes.
  • Body Stamina Skill Modifier is now 2.6x at 40 skill and scales downward the higher it becomes.
  • Mind Logic and Mind Speed is now 3.0x at 40 skill and scales downward the higher it becomes.

 

Skill modifiers for all other skills still work the same and follow their previous scale

  • 0 to 60 = 5.0x Skill Modifier
  • 65 to 70 = 3.5x Skill Modifier
  • 70 to 80 = 2.0x Skill Modifier
  • 80 to 90 = 1.5x Skill Modifier
  • 90 to 98 = 1.2x skill Modifier
  • Over 98+ = 1.15x Skill Modifier

Server News

12-21-20 to 12-25-20

Livemaps operational! All live maps are working again!

Paradise: http://kkamui.xyz/wu-map/

Viridian: http://kkamui.xyz/wu-map/viridian

Fuschia: http://kkamui.xyz/wu-map/fuschia

 

All maps are updated every day for now to help with server performance.

 

Degraded Network Performance

The server has been experiencing degraded network performance and might be for a while.

My ISP lists me as in a outage area and nothing can be done to really at the this time as it is in their hands. Occasional latency and loss of internet entirely has been par for the course at this point and all I can do is restart my modem as it happens (which usually helps to a degree or outright fixes it for a certain amount of time)

 

I will keep you updated as much as possible.

 

Fuschia Server Planned Changes have been cancelled

Major reconsideration for Fuschia over the past months have made me reevaluate my stance on it and at this point I will be canceling the Fuschia plan for now, reasons why below

  • PVP Servers are dependent upon medium to high player counts of dedicated players. At this time we do not have such a high playerbase to support a PVP server.
  • Massive rewrites of how portal code would be required and while this would normally be fine, I do not currently have the time to complete this in a timely manner by myself. This could change if I had help from another developer.
  • PVE Mods and changes are my main focus as that is where the main player base is currently, shifting focus entirely to a PVP server that might or might not take off could be detrimental.
  • The playerbase is very small at the moment, splitting it up further would be detrimental.

All these reasons have led me to shelf the Fuschia PVP server plan for now until we have more players or interest becomes overwhelmingly positive to the idea.

It is also yet to be determined if Fuschia as a server itself will stick around, current ideas are to change it to a hunting PVE server with an extremely high mob count or just another PVE Map to the cluster.

Thank you for understanding and I will keep everyone updated on this in the future if interest picks up again.

 

New suggestion forum has been added and can be found here

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Server Retirement

All Wurm Unlimited servers will be taken down due to lack of interest from players and myself until further notice. If there is demand or interest in the server again, it will be put back up.

Maps and player data are not being deleted but backed up and put on a storage drive until further notice and player interest has picked up, which I think is unlikely due to the low player count for months but I can hope.

Upcoming Shop

I will soon be adding a new shop to the site in which players can donate to the server by buying items not normally found in-game such as spyglasses, masks, shoulder pads, and other bundles. Ofcourse, there will be events on the server in the future to obtain these items but any items bought from the shop will go directly to server costs and development.

Developer Applications

A reminder that I am taking developer applications and server admins to help with the server.
For now they are volunteer positions with the possibly of being paid in the future as the server earns more income. Any help at all is greatly appreciated

These is no set maintenance schedule yet but updates will be either every Monday or Friday around 1-3am or 1-2pm

I apologize for the period where there was no live map, it took some time to try and go through my options of getting past the data corruption but in the end, a full format was the only option. All is well now and I'll start working on Wurm Unlimited updates regularly again along side the Minecraft server!

Highway Portals Mod

Highway Portals are Player craftable portals that allow teleporting between deeds on the same highway network.

  • Start by crafting an Inactive town portal (mortar+marble brick to start).
  • Place the portal on your deed, right click it and activate.
  • You can teleport to other villages with portals that are part of the same highway network if either…
  • That village has “Highway routing” enabled in settings. (Portals in villages with this setting are considered public and anyone can teleport to them).
  • You are a citizen of the village.
  • You have “pass gates” permission in the village.

Rules

  • Portals need to be at least 10 QL to work.
  • Portals can only be activated on deed that you own or are allowed to manage.
  • Portals must be placed on a relatively flat ground and outside buildings.
  • Portals can’t be placed on bridges.
  • Only 1 portal can be active in a village.
  • You can drag items and lead animals through portals.
  • You can go through a portal riding a vehicle or mount, but you will be dismounted. The mount/vehicle will teleport with you but you’ll have to remount.
  • Passengers will be removed from vehicles when teleporting and will have to teleport manually to follow.
