Well it depends how you are using those numbers, 4x4 8x8 and 16x16. Tiles or kilometers or ?

If you look at Wurmpedia here on servers, it is as Schiann says, same size as Indy and Chaos, or 4096x4096:

Put jk on the south middle island (they are lowest pop group atm right?) And move bl to top right, then it solves issue of island being to small for the big group, and spreads the kingdoms out fairly. @Darklords

Do I understand correctly that character creation will proceed the same as always, the only difference being the presence of two new destination choices on the Haven portal?

Starting tomorrow, new characters will start on Golden Valley and the portals there will have the new servers as added destination choices.

I don't think the starter zone distance is going to matter all that much in the end. It would be more equal (equalateral, in fact) to move BL to south center island, but how many upper level  PVP factions are going to be living on the starter island anyway?

Will the players who are joining through the steam client still need to register a new character on the wurmonline.com site?

I have a character on Golden Valley can i use him to go to the steam servers? Will his items/skills or coins transfer??? 

What if i traded items to a newly made character from my GV alt? Would they transfer to the Steam servers? 

 

Not that i'd really leave golden valley for that reason. I'm curious where they will spawn on Golden Valley. I want to go there and wave at them.

No, you create characters through the launcher when using the Steam client.

I'm puzzled with new characters starting on Golden Valley how is the tutorial going to work ? is there a duplicate tutorial on Harmony or is it moving back to GV for everybody ?

Or Steam people don't get a tutorial  ?

So update on the pvp map, we regenerated the map with a bigger southern middle island for BL this did not change the rest of the map except for the placement of tiles like sand/steppe.

Not that I mind much, but is the ease of travel to the mainland similar across the three starter islands? Having some regions able to more easily explore the mainland might give large advantages to one side or the other.
