Current State of WU....

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi people of Wurm Unlimited..... I've been playing WO pretty much since the pandemic "started" and I'm absolutely, 100%, totally in love with Wurm!! 

 

I wanted to introduce some of my best friends to WO - but times are tough & although they like the game and want to play, they cannot afford premium to enjoy the full game. So I thought maybe I could set up a server for my gang using WU.

So here I am.... 
I'll teach myself Java. I'll learn to create mods. I'll lurk forums and marathon YouTube how-to videos until I'm blue in the face. But I can't leave Wurm now that I've found it, and I definitely want to get my friends hooked too.  That having been said - 

(1) Who lives here? Who is lurking this forum and reading this overly-long post? Who are the big names around these parts? 

(2) Are modders still actively modding? I know that in a situation like this, the parent-company is screwing over part of their player base, but still controls enough of the game that they could very well actively steal mod content for "updates" to the game & player base that they are still getting money from - I know that modders stop making their mods publicly available or easily accessible to protect their creative IP. .... but, um, all I want to know is are y'all still out there making mods, like, at all? 

(3) 3rd Person view. I want it. I prefer it. I saw a 3rd person mod on the subforum - does that still work? Is 3rd person actually in WU somewhere, and I'm just  missing it?  I'll be able to live without / teach myself just about everything else, maybe... but this one is big for me.... (also, WTF WO, not at least giving WU a 3rd person view update?! That's super crappy. I really do think y'all kinda owe us that one.)


Aaaaaand, that's about all I got right now. Like I said, hello I'm new in town. I'm diving into WU head-first. 💜👋

yeah there are a few modders still pretty active, the great thing about WU is every server is different, if 1 server doesn't fit what you are after you can try another server.

as for modding here is a little video I made which may help you get started. Hope you enjoy your WU experience 😃

Just so as not to repeat what has already been said but basically this.

There is a WU server of almost every flavour.  I would recommend rather than setting up your own, trying out some of those and see which fits, at least for a start.

 

Wurd of warning, though, you will find some of the dynamics and mechanics SOoo good that their lack in WO will be a frustration.  Be prepared for that.

 

I have not and likely will not abandon my first WO character (and will probably invest time in my second on the new servers), but I am also semi-active on 2 WU servers, inactive on 2 others and had a couple disappear out from under me.

 

Everyone will have their preferences, but my 2 preferred servers are Sklotopia and Terra Australis.  Both are well balanced, and the second is a bit specific for us antipodeans.  Check the recruiting threads in the WU subforum for some info about the various servers.
