Patch Notes: 1.9.0.0 Beta: Gone Fishing https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/23/patch-notes-1900-beta-gone-fishing/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/23/patch-notes-1900-beta-gone-fishing/ Mon, 11 Mar 2019 15:00 CET Greetings Wurmians!This beta update is HUGE with a capital, well, everything! It catches Wurm Unlimited up to 1.9.0.0 with Wurm Online, containing the archaeology cache system, priest overhaul system, and the new fishing system.

The priest rework notes are also quite extensive, so will be in a separate post

The new fishing system is the last project worked on by senior developer Tich, before her passing. Unfortunately she did not live to see it go live, but we finished it off and launched it in her honour. To further honour her memory we have included a statue of Tich, doing her favourite thing, fishing!)

Changed classes is pretty extensive, and as such will be included in a separate link later on.

We expect this beta to be around for 2-4 weeks before going live, during which we'll be performing one or two updates to tweak and update to add a few performance improvements due in WO in the next update.

As usual, please report any bugs you find on our Steam forums, official forums at http://forum.wurmonline.com , or discord at https://discord.gg/wurm

And as always, Keep on Wurming!

The Wurm team.
Changes and Additions:
New: Archaeology changes and additions.
  • Wood types have been added to wooden items.
  • New statues have been discovered.
  • Fix for some moonmetal fragments.
  • Tweaked base difficulty for investigating to be a bit easier overall.
  • You can also now get an extra bonus in areas that are considered valuable according to Archaeology, making fragments a bit easier to gain at higher levels in those locations.
  • New: Archaeology caches have been added
  • Once a report is completed enough, the center tile of that deed can then be found via “Get direction” on the report.
    • Using the “Get direction” function on the center tile of that deed will unearth an archaeology cache.
    • Inside the cache will be an assortment of unidentified fragments including a larger percentage of statue fragments and a relic of the former deed.
    • Amount of fragments is determined by archaeology skill and report ql with a minimum of 10.
    • Once unearthed the report will be consumed.
  • Change: Archaeology journal improvements
    • Journals will now hold a number of reports up to the ql of the journal, with a minimum of 22.
    • Placing a piece of paper or papyrus greater than 30ql inside the journal will automatically turn it into a blank report
    • Reports can also now be moved in and out of journals via drag and drop.
    • Tweaked the chances for location info to be recorded in a report to be a bit lower than previously to balance for caches.
  • Some Archaeology statues with solid bases can now have items placed upon them.
New: Fishing is now interactive with many new features and items.
New item: Fishing rod
New fishing reels
  • Light fishing reel
  • Medium fishing reel
  • Deep water fishing reel
  • Professional fishing reel
Fishing Reels

Fishing Reels are added to rods so that they can be used for fishing. A fishing reel holds up to 1 line (which in turn may contain other things), and may be placed in a rod. Fishing Reels will take damage from use, with rare fishing reels taking less damage and less likely to break rod.


Rare reels make it easier to reel the fish in.


New handles for fishing:
  • Handle -  same item as current in-game version.
  • Wrapped handle -  same item as current in-game version
  • Reinforced handle
  • Padded handle
New fishing lines:
  • Basic line - used on pole, may only contain a (wood or metal) hook
  • Light line - used on basic fishing reel, used to catch smaller fish
  • Medium line - used on fine fishing reel, used to catch medium fish
  • Heavy line - used on deep water fishing reel, used to catch large fish
  • Braided line - used on professional fishing reel, used to catch ‘special’ fish
Floats
Floats can be added to lines which affects which fish are more likely to be caught. There are 4 types of float:
  • Feather - part of butchered loot from rooster, pheasant and hen.
  • Twig - found on bush tiles.
  • Small moss - taken from moss.
  • Bark - found on overaged birch trees.
Floats will take damage over time when used, and will need replacing from time to time.
Hooks
  • Hooks are added to lines to catch fish. There are 3 types of hook:
  • Wood - same as current item, better for fly fishing
  • Metal - same as current item, better for deep water / sea fishing
  • Bone - made from goblin skulls
Hooks behave as a container, which may contain bait, and will take damage over time as they are used.

Wood type will affect how fast a fish turns up
Bait
When used on a hook, bait increases the chance of catching particular fish. There are 12 types of bait:
  • Fly - You catch these using a pottery jar with a bit of honey in it, on animals that require grooming.
  • Cheese Piece - Cheese Broken into smaller pieces.
  • Dough Ball - a small ball of dough.
  • Wurm - Found on dirt and mycelium tiles.
  • Sardines - Caught using fishing nets in shallows.
  • Roach - Caught in shallow waters.
  • Perch - Caught in shallow waters.
  • Minnow - Caught in caves.
  • Fish Bait - Small fish chopped up.
  • Grub - Found in shrivelled trees, prised out using an awl.
  • Wheat Grain - from wheat!
  • Corn Kernel - from corn.
Each time a fish bites on a baited line, the bait will take damage (e.g. the fish eats a bit of it). Bait is not required to catch fish (i.e. you can catch fish without bait), but the chances are a lot lower. Different fish prefer different bait.
Fishing Net
The fishing net can be used to catch small fish in shallow waters. Small fish may be used directly, or turned into bait to use on larger fish. This is the only way to catch sardines.
Keep Net
A keep net may be attached to a boat, and is used to preserve freshly caught fish (i.e. reduce decay). It can also be planted on the ground next to a player. Note that it must be planted, in water, to behave as a container; just dropping it will not allow fish to be placed in the keep net. It can only be picked up when empty.
Tackle Box
The tackle box is a special new container designed to streamline fishing. As well as being a convenient place to put spare floats, lines, bait, and other fishing paraphernalia, it automatically replaces fishing consumables as they are used up. In particular, as bait and floats are consumed (i.e. reach 100 damage), if your tackle box contains a suitable replacement, it will be automatically be moved to the rod when it gets to 100 damage at the end of the fishing action. The tackle box needs to be in inventory to work, and a consumed item will only be replaced by the same type of item (e.g. a feather float will only be replaced by another feather float; it will not be replaced with a moss float).

The auto-replacing will happen at the end of the Fish action. The auto-replacement depends on fishing skill, with each item type having a specific skill requirement:
  • Bait will be auto-replaced at 10 skill
  • Hook will be auto-replaced at 30 skill
  • Float will be auto-replaced at 50 skill
  • Line will be auto-replaced at 70 skill or at any skill if reel exists.
  • Reel will be auto-replaced at 90 skill (does not apply to fishing poles as they don’t have reels).
When an item is consumed (i.e. it wears out), you will get a message at the end of the fish action.
Spears
In addition to rod fishing, this update includes spear fishing. This utilises the current spears already in game, with no functional difference (as far as fishing is concerned) between metal and long spears.
Fishing Rod Rack
The rod rack is a new container for storing fishing rods and poles when not in use. It operates in a similar fashion to a polearm rack, and has different models for empty and utilised states. Rod racks may be placed and secured.
Fishing Buoy
Buoys can be used to mark fishing spots. They are floating items that are anchored to a particular item, and may be used to show special fishing spots, for example. Buoys use the same placement rules as sign posts, except they need to be placed on underwater tiles. They operate as light sources (similar to a street lamp), and may be dyed. If blessed will not use fuel, but do require fuel to be lit.
Water
All water tiles are now categorised into 6 groups:
  • Sea - open water
  • Sea shallows - open water shallower than 25
  • Lake - enclosed water, larger than a pond
  • Lake shallows - enclosed water shallower than 25
  • Pond - enclosed water, not big enough to be a lake
  • Water - not big enough to be a pond
Note: Any water tiles underground, uses Lake or Pond (or Water)

Note: The calculation is performed on server start so modifying water sources will not change their type until the next restart.
Brackish water
Lake water is considered fresh, while sea water is considered brackish. Brackish water can be drunk and used for cooking as usual (with no ill effect), and can be boiled to make salt - 1 salt per kilogram of brackish water.
General Attributes
All fish now have a set of attributes which determine where and when they are more likely to be caught:
  • Preferred water type (lake, sea, etc)
  • Minimum and maximum depth.
  • Feeding height.
  • Rod types.
  • Time of day - some fish like to feed in the morning, afternoon, evening or even at night
  • Baits - each fish has a favorite bait, some baits it likes, others it is less likely to eat, and some it will never touch.
  • Outside or in caves - some fish are only found underground
  • Rare fish can only be caught on special tiles (which are out at sea).
Special Tiles
Special tiles are an area where special (rare) fish may be caught. They will now move with the season, and have been recalculated (i.e. they will have moved on server restart). Non-special fish types may be caught on special tiles, but special fish can only be caught on special tiles, and a lesser chance if close to a center spot. These areas can overlap, so its possible to find places where two special fish can be caught.

Special tiles are only found in open water (i.e. sea). Finding and recognising tiles is unchanged, and uses a pendulum.
Misc Info:
  • Added lore action to rod/pole on boat, and rod/pole/spear/net on tile. Gives a little information on what might be found in areas.
New: Chicken coop added
Requires 50 Fine Carpentry skill to create and continue.
Coop info
Coops contain multiple sub items inside.
  • Nesting Box, This is where the loaded hens reside.
  • Feeder, this is where you place food.
  • Drinker, this is where you place water.
  • Egg Box, this is where you get the eggs from when they are laid.
Locks and permissions
  • Coops are lockable and spawn on creation with a 1ql small padlock.
  • Coops have manageable perms, like any other lockable container.
Loading
  • You can only load hens into the coop.
  • To load a hen, one must first lead one, then right click the coop and click "load creature".
  • To be able to load the creature there must be water in the drinker and food in the feeder.
  • You can only put food in the feeder that can be planted. Example: pumpkin seed, or corn.
  • Loadable chicken count is QL / 10 + rarity (max 13 for 100ql fantastic).
  • QL must be greater than or equal to 10 to load a chicken.
Feeding and watering
  • Polling for the feeder and drinker happens every 4 hours at which time, creature count in food is subtracted from the feeder. E.g. if there are 4 hens loaded 4 food will be subtracted.
  • Also 250 grams of water for each hen will be subtracted from the drinker.
Egg output
  • Eggs will be created every 12 hours.
  • Eggs will have a small chance of being fertile.
  • Egg ql is dictated by the ql of the coop.
  • Egg count is equal to the count of the chickens.
  • If either the feeder or the drinker is empty on egg poll the chickens will be unloaded on the center of the tile where the coop resides.
Misc. info
  • You cannot load a coop with chickens in it.
  • Chickens in a coop, on deed, count towards the ratio.
  • You cannot bash a coop with chickens loaded.
  • The egg box will only hold 100 eggs.
 
New: Tower influence chaining system on PvP servers:
Influence Chaining
An influence chain is any land that a kingdom has influence over that is fully connected (chained) back to a valid starting point for that influence. All kingdom capitals and starter deeds (for base kingdoms) are considered a chain start point, and any tower or deed in a kingdom must connect back to that start point via influence chaining.

In order for a tower or deed to be considered chained to a kingdom’s influence, it must have a continued chain of influence (from kingdom towers) back to a chain start point. Towers radiate an influence out to 60 tiles from their base, and deeded land has influence as well. Because of this, any new towers built must be built within a 100 tile range of another tower of the same kingdom (minimum range remains 50) in order to continue the chain.

In order to carry over the current state of towers on the servers at the moment, any tower within 120 range of another will still be considered chained, and allows for a valid spot between those two towers to build a new one to maintain the chain should one tower be destroyed after the update (and can no longer be rebuilt at 120 range).

There are a few penalties involved with this system to promote completing and holding chained influence:
  • Any tower outside of chained influence will no longer respawn tower guards.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will respawn spirit guard waves 3 times slower.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will no longer have guards maintain fences, bridges, floors and walls - similar to when a deed has less than a month of upkeep remaining.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will have on-deed mine doors take 3 times as much bashing damage.
Tower Conquest
Towers will no longer be able to be conquered to convert them to your kingdom. To remove a tower, you will have to bash/destroy it, then reconstruct a new one within your tower influence chain.

Bashing a tower will now spawn waves of guards when it reaches 30, 60, and 90 damage, and waves will become more challenging as the damage increases.

At 90 damage, the kingdom that owns the tower will get a message in the Deaths tab stating that the tower is under attack.When the tower is destroyed, there will be a global message to all kingdoms on the server that the tower has been destroyed.

New Journal system added
  • The journal system is designed to guide players from their first steps in Wurm to more advanced steps.
  • Completing 50% of a tiers goals will unlock the next tier.
  • Completing 100% of a tiers goals will give the player a small reward.
  • This update includes tiers 1-7 as well as a tab for tutorials.

  • Essence Drain [61 faith, 100 favor] (Libila) - Targets items. Enchant that serves as Libila’s version of Life Transfer. However, the healing done is only 1/3rd of what Fo’s Life Transfer grants. To counterbalance, Essence Drain also deals a wound at 10% of base damage as internal damage.
  • Focused Will [31 faith, 10 favor] (Magranon) - Targets wounds. Heals 5% to 20% damage, based on cast power. Drains stamina from the caster equivalent to the amount healed.

Religious Demises & Protection
  • All of these demise and protection enchants have been removed from existing items. They will no longer apply to weapons and armour. These spells instead been reworked into the following spells to enchant jewelry.
  • All of these spells conflict with each other and Nolocate, meaning you can only have one of these enchants on a single piece of jewelry at a time.
  • Stacking two or more of an identical enchant across multiple slots results in a penalty to each one. This penalty is 33% reduced effectiveness for two identical enchants and 50% reduced effectiveness for three identical enchants.
  • Offensive Jewelry Enchants
    • Blaze (Magranon) - Grants a 2.5% to 5% increase to fire damage dealt while worn.
    • Corrosion (Libila) - Grants a 2.5% to 5% increase to acid damage dealt while worn.

  • Prayers and sermons now grant favor to the template deity instead of having a new pool for every demigod.
  • Rites now function off of template god favor pool when cast by a demigod.
  • Rites no longer require a specific amount of players in local to cast, and their deity favor cost is no longer dependant on the amount of players on the server.
  • All Rites now create a 24 hour window for players to claim the reward. Upon casting, any player of the same template deity as the caster can pray at any altar or applicable location (for example, Magranon can pray on rock) to obtain the bonus.
  • All Rites now grant up to 5 hours of sleep bonus and 0.2% towards 100 of a certain characteristic.
  • Rite of Spring - Now grants 0.2% Mind Logic towards 100 instead of a flat 0.1 increase. Still grants 5 hours of sleep bonus. Now doubles all boat speed on the server it’s casted on for 24 hours.
  • Ritual of the Sun - Now grants 0.2% Body Stamina towards 100 and 5 hours of sleep bonus. Now heals all structure walls and fences within Magranon & his demigod faith zones.
  • Holy Crop - Now grants 0.2% Soul Depth towards 100 and 5 hours of sleep bonus. Now performs a Genesis cast on all applicable creatures within the domain of Fo and all template demigods.
  • Rite of Death - Now grants 0.2% Soul Strength towards 100 and 5 hours of sleep bonus.
Healing Rework
  • Healing spells now work off a global healing resistance debuff. This debuff is applied based on how much health is healed on the target, and will reduce all further healing on the target from any of the listed healing sources based on how much time remains on the debuff. The maximum time is about 20 minutes, and the reduction scales linearly from that mark. For example, if you have 10 minutes on your healing resistance, you’ll receive heals at 50% effectiveness.
  • Cure Light - Now heals 15% + up to 5% more based on cast power. Previously healed 15%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Medium - Now heals 30% + up to 10% more based on cast power. Previously healed 30%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Serious - No longer heals a wound fully. Instead, heals a wound for up to 90% + up to 30% more based on cast power. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Heal - Now heals 40% to 200% based on cast power. Previously healed 30% to 150%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating they were healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles.
  • Life Transfer - Amount healed remains the same, but no longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Also bypasses the minimum damage threshold for healing, and will always apply some amount of healing as long as damage is dealt with the attack. Now works off the global healing resistance.
  • Light of Fo - Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Still limited to 5 wounds. Cast power heavily impacts the severity of wounds that are able to be healed. Cast time increased from 10 seconds to 15 seconds.
  • Scorn of Libila - Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Wounds healed limit increased from 2 to 3 per target. Now heals at minimum 3 wounds even if no damage is dealt. Each target that is dealt damage now allows up to 3 additional wounds to be healed, increased from the previous 1. Difficulty reduced from 60 to 50. Area of effect adjusted to 7x7 - 11x11 based on cast power.
Spell Resistances
Many offensive spells in the game now also have their own resistances. These function identically to the healing resistance above, but have much lower maximum durations for their resistance values.
Drain Health - Resistance applies to both the offensive and defensive portions of the spell. For example, using this to heal will give you a resistance to Drain Health, which not only reduces healing received from consecutive casts, but also reduces damage taken from others attempting to Drain Health you. Resistance is capped to 5 minutes.
  • Fireheart - Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes. with 1.5 seconds resist per power [Shared with Shard of Ice and Rotting Gut]
  • Fire Pillar - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Fungus Trap - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Hypothermia - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Inferno and Worm Brains].
  • Ice Pillar - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Inferno - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Worm Brains].
  • Pain Rain - Resistance capped to 4 minutes.
  • Rotting Gut - Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes with 1.5 seconds resist per power [Shared with Fireheart and Shard of Ice].
  • Scorn of Libila - Resistance capped to 5 minutes. Applies to damage portion only. Healing is affected by global Healing Resistance.
  • Shard of Ice - Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes with 1.5 seconds resist per power [Shared with Fireheart and Rotting Gut].
  • Smite - Resistance capped to 5 minutes.
  • Tentacles - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Tornado - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Worm Brains - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Inferno].
Locate Rework
  • Locate Soul - Now has a 2 minute cooldown. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Nolocate - No longer able to be cast on creatures/players. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Lurker in the Dark - Now has a maximum radius of 100 tiles. This is reduced by up to 50 tiles based on the highest equipped Nolocate jewelry of a player. This is reduced again to 25 tiles when it’s a stealthed player.
Locate Resistance
  • When located successfully by another player, you obtain “Locate Resistance” with a duration based on the highest Nolocate power jewelry you have equipped. This resistance prevents you from being located by any player until it expires. At 100 nolocate, this duration is 5 minutes. Being located by other players in your kingdom will not apply a cooldown, even if you have Nolocate.
  • If the casted locate spell does not beat your nolocate (the power is lower than your jewelry), the Locate Resistance is not applied and the locate spell fails. The locate spell will still receive a cooldown.
  • The messaging is identical whether you resist a locate due to having a higher nolocate power or have Locate Resistance. This means players cannot know for certain whether you are resistant or whether their specific cast did not defeat the threshold required.
Specific Spell Changes
  • Aura of Shared Pain - Removed from Magranon. Added to Libila.
  • Bearpaws - Damage bonus for players has been increased significantly. The new damage bonus is roughly triple the previous values of Bearpaws. Bonus damage for non-players remains the same.
  • Bless - Followers of Libila no longer need to Bless a creature in order to tame it. They can still bless a creature to prevent a white-lighter from taming it.
  • Bloodthirst - Epic changes to Bloodthirst now apply to all servers. Now deals up to 33% increased damage at 10k instead of modifying base damage. Additionally, Bloodthirst now has a power / 100,000 chance to inflict an infection wound on the target (10% at 10,000 Bloodthirst). This infection wound will ignore enemy glance rate. Infection wounds now heal or worsen every minute, and will rapidly worsen. Bandaging or treating the infection wound will stop the worsening effect, but it will still tick every minute.
  • Break Altar - Now costs 20 favor to cast on normal altars. Remains 80 favor to cast against WL/BL.

  • Dominate - Power of the cast now uses Channeling as the primary skill check, with Soul Strength added as a bonus. This is the reverse of previous functionality. It should be easier to dominate creatures if your Channeling is higher than your Soul Strength after this change. No longer able to be interrupted by taking damage during combat.
  • Drain Health - No longer heals a set amount when cast. Instead, it now heals for double the amount of damage dealt. Uses new spell resistance (see above).

  • Flaming Aura - Now bypasses the minimum damage threshold and will always apply a wound, regardless of the target’s armour.
  • Forest Giant Strength - No longer limited to having below 40 body strength. Instead, it now applies a temporary “curve” to Body Strength based on cast power.
  • Fungus - Renamed to “Corrupt”.

  • Heal - See Healing Rework above.

  • Humid Drizzle - Cooldown reduced from 15 minutes to 30 seconds. Cast time reduced from 40 seconds to 30 seconds. Creatures now gain a 15 minute resistance to Humid Drizzle when affected. They will not be able to be affected by another Humid Drizzle until the resistance expires.

  • Tangleweave - Reworked into essentially a new spell.

  • Venom - Favor cost reduced from 120 to 100. Damage conversion now occurs before glance calculations. Still deals poison wounds, but those poison wounds do not inflict poison status (that causes the instant kill). The 20% damage penalty has now been scaled based on cast power, with 100 power completely cancelling out the damage penalty altogether.
  • Vessel - Faith requirement reduced from 38 to 31.
  • Web Armour - Added to Magranon.

Player Demigods
  • Demigods now have a “template” deity that their religion is based on, selected from the four base gods.
  • These templates affect the affinities that each demigod provides. For example, demigods with Vynora as their template will be able to pray on water and get double favor from sacrificing pottery. Any demigod following a different template is unable to obtain these affinities.
  • Priests can now link with any priest of the same template. For example, this means that any Libila priest can link with any other blacklight demigod.
  • Demigod passives have been rerolled with the exception of the template passives (listed above).
  • Passives are now more likely to align with the template deity, but some will be outliers to create interesting combinations.
  • Demigod spells have been completely rerolled using a new system to distribute the spells.
  • The new system uses the affinities of the demigod to determine what type of spells they should obtain, as well as avoiding overpowered or useless combinations that render a god too strong or too weak.
  • Updated information regarding their current passives and spell lists can be found in this spreadsheet on the second sheet (Deity Information).
Miscellaneous & Messaging
  • Spell List Improvements - The Spell List window has been completely overhauled and has many new features to offer.
  • Larger Window - The window that displays is now larger. This should prevent having to resize the window in order to see all the passives and spells available to you.
  • Passives Display - Now shows how strong your connection to your deity is (based on your faith level). This is then followed by the passives the deity is currently granting you.
  • Spells Sorted - Spells have now been placed into a sortable table. You can now sort spells by faith requirement, favor, name, or description. Targets are also available, but not exceptionally functional.
  • Updated Descriptions - All spells now have new descriptions which should more accurately represent how they function.
  • Existing players with deities can have a one time transfer by using /transfer. There is currently no planned date for this window to end, any planned date will be announced in advance.
Enchanting Improvements
  • Certain spells now target specific item types instead of any item. Attempting to target any other item than a valid target will result in an error.

  • The longsword is already enchanted with something that would negate the effect.
  • The longsword is already enchanted with Blessings of the Dark, which would negate the effect of Wind of Ages.
  • Effect descriptions for many enchants have been updated to better reflect their function.
  • Many additional objects are now able to be enchanted and mended, specifically containers such as pottery.
  • Examine messages for enchants now have color. These colors can be edited in your client settings under the Text tab.
  • Natural favor regeneration has been improved. It now regenerates every 5 seconds instead of every 10 seconds, and also replenishes more per regeneration tick.
  • Certain potions from bloods and similar now have an effect:
  • Salve of Frost - Converts damage from a weapon to frost.
  • Salve of Fire - Converts damage from a weapon to fire.
  • Potion of Acid - Converts damage from a weapon to acid.
  • Damage from all spells, including karma spells, now uses Soul Strength in damage reduction calculations instead of Body Strength.
  • Damage dealt to non-players is now modified heavily. Targets can take anywhere from 4x to 0x damage based on their armour and Soul Strength.
  • Maximum cast power for champions on home servers has been increased from 30 to 50.
  • Tile spells now use multicolor line messaging for casting, similar to creature casts.
  • Creature enchant spells will no longer give “would never help the infidel” errors when attempting to cast on an allied player following a deity that doesn’t agree with yours. Instead, this error now only occurs when attempting to cast on enemy players.

    Patch notes: 1.7.0.0 https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/10/patch-notes-1700/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/10/patch-notes-1700/ Tue, 03 Jul 2018 14:15 CEST

    Hi Everyone,
    This update brings several major things including updates to our archaeology system, animal cages, and the ability to place items on tables. We've also removed PvP centric personal goals, making the system much easier to get into, full details below.

    This update also brings a new distributed JRE version 1.8u172

    Changes and Additions:
    Archaeology changes:
    • Archaeology items can now be found in all metal types:
      • If you investigate and find a metal fragment that is NOT ore or a lump, it'll get the "metal" material.
      • If the fragment you found would have had the steel material (instead of iron), it'll get the "alloy" material instead.
      • Any existing iron fragments can be combined with metal fragments (they will be converted to "metal" material when you start the combine action.
      • Same deal with steel and alloy fragments.
      • When you complete an item from fragments of the metal material, the final item will have a chance to become any base metal type (iron, tin, lead, gold, silver, copper, zinc) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards iron.
      • When you complete an item from fragments of the alloy material, the final item will have a chance to become any alloy metal type (steel, brass, bronze) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards steel.
      • If alloy fragments are extremely well identified, upon combining they will have a small chance to come out as a moonmetal (seryll, glimmersteel, adamantine) - though steel is more likely again.
      • "metal" material fragments can only be combined with other "metal" fragments, and "alloy" material fragments can only be combined with other "alloy" fragments.
    • New:  You can now create an archaeological journal to help record your investigations. ( Special thanks to Wurm Unlimited modder Bdew for some ideas in implementing this!)
      • Add report pages to the journal by activating paper or papyrus sheets and right clicking on the journal - Add report.
      • 22 reports will fit into the journal.
      • Data will be added to your reports as you investigate and gather information.
      • New information will be added to the report as you continue to investigate.
      • Once you've found enough information for a single report, you will be able to use that report to help find that deed again whenever you want.
    • Changes:
      • New statues have been added.
    • Fixes:
      • Fixed a bug which allowed investigating to bypass max inventory weight.
      • Paved tiles should properly reset the investigate flag.
    Item Placement:
    • Items can now be placed on tables and certain objects
    • To place an item, simply right click it from your inventory and select drop > place. You may then move the outlined object onto the table, clicking will place it at that location.
    • The following surfaces can have items placed on them:

    • You cannot load a creature with items on it.
    • There are specific models for the following stored creatures: bison, sheep, ram, cow, bull, horse, foal, hell horse. All other stored creatures have an enclosed cage graphic.
    • Max of 4 creature cages per tile.
    • A caged animal will move around and cause damage to the cage.
    • When a cage hits 80 damage, the animal will escape.
    • If an animal escapes a cage while in a boat in water, the animal will end up in the water and begin taking damage if they are not a swimming animal. If agro and not tamed, you will not be able to tame them while swimming.
    • You cannot repair or improve a cage if it is storing an animal.
    • The number of cages that can be carried by a vehicle is as follows:

    Devblog: 1.7 Incoming! https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/11/devblog-17-incoming/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/11/devblog-17-incoming/ Wed, 27 Jun 2018 17:12 CEST
    As some of you may have seen, Wurm Unlimited 1.7 beta is now available, and we're preparing to launch it live early next week! In case you haven't seen what's in it, I'm here to give you a bit of a quick overview, so let's jump in!

    Creature Cages!

    While the ability to transport animals is an existing mod, we've introduced an official way to transport creatures, the creature cage.

    This cage will hold any creature you can lead (it must be tamed or dominated if necessary) and can be carried by vehicles too. We're also introducing a new vehicle that can hold more cages than other land based vehicles, the creature transporter.

    If your server consists of multiple servers linked by sailing this will also allow you to transport creatures between them, meaning you can take your favourite horse with you always!

    Items on tables!

    Long desired, and again appearing as a mod by the awesome modder Bdew (seriously, check out his mods) is another huge feature, the ability to place items on tables! No more eating on the floor while your fancy marble dining table sits unloved, this addition really brings out the interior decorating in you, and opens up a whole new aspect of designing your home

    Archaeology Updates


    With Archaeology coming out in 1.6, we're expanding upon it with this update, adding the ability to find items of any material type, record details about deeds, and also adding new unique statues to find!

    You'll be able to make an archaeology journal, and as you explore and investigate, you'll find information out about old deeds, and thus add them to your journal.


    Newer servers need not fear being left out though, there's a command to seed servers with fake villages and mayors, giving you a server filled with old deeds to explore!



    Future works:

    Graphical improvements

    A long standing issue many have had with Wurm is the dated graphics, and we're all too aware of just how it can look sometimes. A big focus of ours at the moment is to really up the ante on the graphics and overhaul a lot of it with the addition of a few systems, improved lighting, and the addition of normal and specular maps.

    Distance shadows:
    We're working on some improvements to terrain textures, but this update will have something that smooths out the shadows on distant terrain, making the mountains and shadows look far less blocky than before.


    Normal maps: Normal mapping is a layer placed over an existing model, that simulates more lumps and bumps, allowing for rendering of shadows and light without actually requiring complex lighting calculations or more heavily detailed models, this means models and textures will look less flat without causing major performance penalties.

    Specular maps: Specular mapping is a way of dictating how a model or texture "shines" on certain parts, e.g. Making that golden part of a model shine without the stone part shining too.

    An example of just how amazing this can make things look, we have some work in progress shots of metal shields, check them out here:
    https://youtu.be/uAVnxuLi5fA

    Both of these will add quite a significant change to just how a lot of things look and feel, but that's not all!

    We're also adding a new lighting system which will remove issues with dynamic lights flickering without impacting performance greatly, with this new system you'll be able to see all the lights in an area, and it'll look amazing!



    The full beta patch notes can be found here:
    https://steamcommunity.com/games/366220/announcements/detail/1699429024565457994
    We'll be preparing to launch this all to live early next week, so get your tools ready, there's work to be done!

    Until next time, keep on Wurming!

    Patch notes: 1.7.0.0 beta - Archaeology changes, animal cages and items on tables https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/12/patch-notes-1700-beta-archaeology-changes-animal-cages-and-items-on-tables/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/12/patch-notes-1700-beta-archaeology-changes-animal-cages-and-items-on-tables/ Tue, 26 Jun 2018 02:15 CEST

    Hi Everyone,
    This update brings several major things including updates to our archaeology system, animal cages, and the ability to place items on tables. As usual the beta will be available for a week or so before it becomes the live build which is currently planned for Tuesday, 3rd of July. As usual, any issues please report them via the forums.

    -First edit.
    We've bumped the version up to 1.7.0.0 as to avoid issues with new clients connecting to older servers.

    Changes and Additions:
    Archaeology changes:
    • Archaeology items can now be found in all metal types:
      • If you investigate and find a metal fragment that is NOT ore or a lump, it'll get the "metal" material.
      • If the fragment you found would have had the steel material (instead of iron), it'll get the "alloy" material instead.
      • Any existing iron fragments can be combined with metal fragments (they will be converted to "metal" material when you start the combine action.
      • Same deal with steel and alloy fragments.
      • When you complete an item from fragments of the metal material, the final item will have a chance to become any base metal type (iron, tin, lead, gold, silver, copper, zinc) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards iron.
      • When you complete an item from fragments of the alloy material, the final item will have a chance to become any alloy metal type (steel, brass, bronze) depending on how well identified the fragments were - heavily weighted towards steel.
      • If alloy fragments are extremely well identified, upon combining they will have a small chance to come out as a moonmetal (seryll, glimmersteel, adamantine) - though steel is more likely again.
      • "metal" material fragments can only be combined with other "metal" fragments, and "alloy" material fragments can only be combined with other "alloy" fragments.
    • New:  You can now create an archaeological journal to help record your investigations. ( Special thanks to Wurm Unlimited modder Bdew for some ideas in implementing this!)
      • Add report pages to the journal by activating paper or papyrus sheets and right clicking on the journal - Add report.
      • 22 reports will fit into the journal.
      • Data will be added to your reports as you investigate and gather information.
      • New information will be added to the report as you continue to investigate.
      • Once you've found enough information for a single report, you will be able to use that report to help find that deed again whenever you want.
    • Changes:
      • New statues have been added.
    • Fixes:
      • Fixed a bug which allowed investigating to bypass max inventory weight.
      • Paved tiles should properly reset the investigate flag.
    Item Placement:
    • Items can now be placed on tables and certain objects
    • To place an item, simply right click it from your inventory and select drop > place. You may then move the outlined object onto the table, clicking will place it at that location.
    • The following surfaces can have items placed on them:

      • tripod table
      • high bookshelf
      • low bookshelf

    • New Decorational Items that items can be placed on have been added too:

      • Empty Low Bookshelf
      • Bar Table
    Creature Cages:
    • New Item: Creature Cage - Requires 60 carpentry skill to create and continue.
    • New Item: Creature Transporter - 25 Fine Carpentry to create.
    • Must have 23 body strength to load cage onto vehicle.
    • You cannot load pregnant animals.
    • You cannot load hurt animals.

    • There are specific models for the following stored creatures: bison, sheep, ram, cow, bull, horse, foal, hell horse. All other stored creatures have an enclosed cage graphic.
    • Max of 4 creature cages per tile.
    • A caged animal will move around and cause damage to the cage.
    • When a cage hits 80 damage, the animal will escape.
    • If an animal escapes a cage while in a boat in water, the animal will end up in the water and begin taking damage if they are not a swimming animal. If agro and not tamed, you will not be able to tame them while swimming.
    • You cannot repair or improve a cage if it is storing an animal.
    • The number of cages that can be carried by a vehicle is as follows:

    Greetings Wurmians!

    Todays beta patch brings the return of creature conditions, meaning each conditioned creature (raging, greenish, slow, etc) will now have subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) colourings distinguishing them.
    This update also brings a few tweaks to the mission system and metal system, as well as a few PvP centric systems.
    This update should work on existing 1.6.0.0 servers until they update, but if you are experiencing issues you can use the beta branch previous_version.

    NOTE: If you encounter graphical issues such as the one below, setting "Limit max dynamic lights" in the settings to 8 or fewer will fix it, we will be releasing a client update once it is available


    Happy Wurming!

    Changes and additions:
    • Heal spell will now heal a minimum of 30% and scale up to 100% depending on cast power.
    • Sacrifice creature success for missions will now take player FS and creature CR into account:

        • (e.g. 20 rank split across 5 attackers: Each of the 5 will gain a base of 2 rank each.

Killed player will only lose 15 rank instead of 20.PvP Rank:
    PvP Affinities:
    • Affinity will now go to a random attacker instead of the "max" attacker.

If the do not gain the affinity, another random attacker will get the chance instead.If no permanent affinity is gained, a week long timed affinity will be given to a random attacker instead. Killed player will still lose the affinity.
    • All other attackers will gain a timed affinity of between 1 and 2 days in the skill of the lost affinity.

    • Lowered the number of players required for x player missions on pvp.

    Wurm Unlimited 1.6 Patch Notes https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/16/wurm-unlimited-16-patch-notes/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/16/wurm-unlimited-16-patch-notes/ Fri, 06 Apr 2018 14:15 CEST
    Wurm Unlimited 1.6 is now live!

    With new skills, overhauls of many systems, and major features, this update is quite large, and may break servers, so never run this version without making a backup copy of your existing server!

    As always, you can report bugs via our steam forums or official forums here:
    https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/forum/269-technical-issues/

    Enjoy!
    The Wurm team

    Urgent PSA for server owners!

    If you upgraded your server from 1.5 you are likely missing the following important lines in your wurm.ini:

    # DO NOT ENABLE
    USE_SCHEDULED_EXECUTOR_TO_UPDATE_ITEM_OWNER_IN_DATABASE=false
    USE_SCHEDULED_EXECUTOR_TO_UPDATE_ITEM_LASTOWNER_IN_DATABASE=false
    USE_SCHEDULED_EXECUTOR_TO_UPDATE_ITEM_PARENT_IN_DATABASE=false

    It is extremely important that these are added and set to false, as these features are not currently stable. We will be releasing a fix for this in the next beta but in the meantime please update your wurm.ini file and restart your server.

    Thank you Bdew for raising this with us!

    General Changes & Additions
    • New: Archaeology and Restoration skills have been added.
      • Players can now investigate tiles with a trowel to find fragments of items.
      • Investigating on old disbanded settlements has a chance to yield unique items.
      • Unidentified fragments will need to be identified with the use of a chisel or metal brush.
      • Each identify action will reduce the weight of the fragment.

      Bug Fixes:
    Overkilling Changes:
    (Note: Overkilling is the mechanic that stops any skillgain, affinity gain, rank bonuses etc from killing a player in PvP too often)
    • The time limit of 3 hours between kills to trigger overkilling of another player (after having killed them at least 3 times already per player) has been increased to 6 hours.
    • Overall kills on a single player are now tracked, and will count as overkilling if killed more than 3 times by any other player in a short time.
      • When killed in PvP a player will gain a death count and a 3 hour timer will tick down.
      • If killed while that timer is ticking down, another death count will be gained, and the timer will reset to the 3 hour mark and start again.
      • After this timer has ticked down, a death is removed from their count and the timer will reset if any death counts remain.
      • If a player’s death count increases over 3, then any PvP kills against them will count as overkilling until that death count is again below 3.

      • Glimmersteel and Seryll armours now have a 10% movement speed bonus.
      • Adamantine armours now have a 5% movement speed bonus.
    • Changes to damage type damage reduction modifiers on armours (lower % means less effective against that damage type, 100% = no modifier):

      • A cast of under 70 power will give the creature a rare glow, a cast of over 70 will show a supreme glow.

    • Scale and drake armour will no longer drop upon leaving the world.
    Player Gods
    • Once a player has ascended to demigod status, they still control a random hex, allied to the god that favours their kingdom and hostile to others. Being defeated in combat will remove them from the board.
    • If their god wins and can promote an ally, the player god will ascend to godhood and become a full god.
    • The player god is then removed from the Valrei board, but still is allowed followers, priests and a spellbook, they will no longer move on the valrei map or give missions.
    • Deity statistics have been changed from Vitality and Strength to:
      • Body Strength, Body Stamina, Body Control, Mind Logic, Mind Speed, Soul Depth, and Soul Strength
    Deity Fights
    • When gods meet on the same tile they will move into a smaller hex map for the fight. Fights can be viewed and replayed from the valrei map

    • Sorcery spellcasting - Mind Logic, Soul depth
    • Spell defence (passive) - Mind speed, Soul strength
    Mission Difficulty
    • Missions will now generate on a difficulty scale, with higher difficulty missions providing more scenario points, sleep bonus, and karma.
    • Current mission difficulty, available sleep bonus and karma can be viewed in the mission details window
    • For each successful mission completed, the difficulty will go up by 1 for the subsequent mission.
    • Failing or not completing a mission will lower the difficulty of the next mission by 2.
    • If a member of another kingdom sabotages a mission that is possible to sabotage (e.g. cutting down a tree), the mission will be failed and lower the difficulty of the next mission by 2.
    • Mission types are separated by difficulty, with home servers getting easier missions, and enemy servers getting harder missions.
    • Sleep bonus is now divided amongst participants similar to how karma is
    • Successfully completed missions will also provide boosts to deity stats. If a deity wins the scenario they will keep the boosted stats into the next scenario.
    Mission Changes
    • New mission types
      • Destroy guard tower in enemy territory
      • Sacrifice creatures
        • This will require lowering the creatures health and then using a sacrificial knife on the creature in the corresponding gods domain,
      • Kill tower guards
    • Changed mission types
      • Missions involving creatures to be killed or sacrificed will now spawn those creatures specifically for the mission..
      • Traitor mission creatures will be marked with a special effect and will also have oakshell.

    Scenario Rewards
    • Rewards from completing scenarios will now be split across three tiers
      • Tier 1 (1 winner): top 20% of contributors - random single use tome.
      • Tier 2 (3 winners): Top 50% of contributors - 3 random tome fragments
      • Tier 3 (5 winners): entire pool of contributors - Seryll lump or random tome fragment
    • If a player has already won a reward, they cannot win again in that scenario reward pool.
    • Tier 1 winners that are also in the top 5% of contributors will have a small chance to win a huge egg or key to the heavens instead of the single use tome.
    • Deity rewards upon a scenario win have been changed slightly to take into account the new skills used in fights, and more balanced rewards.
    New Affinity System:
    • When using a skill characters will now have a small chance to gain an affinity in that skill upon a successful skill check.
      • On average once every 2 hours, a character will open a 15s window of time where every successful skill check will have a chance to gain an affinity in that skill. (e.g if you are mining during this window, you could gain an affinity in mining, pickaxe, miscellaneous items, body stamina, body strength, soul strength, mind logic, mind, soul, or body)
      • The chance to gain an affinity is 1/500 if you have no affinities in that skill, 1/1000 if you have one affinity, 1/1500 if you have two affinities, 1/2000 if you have 3 affinities and 1/2500 if you have 4 affinities.
      • If an affinity is successfully gained during the 15s window, the window will reset and no more will be able to be gained until the next window on that character.
      • This window will remain open and check every skill tick until an affinity is gained or the 15 seconds is up.
      • We will be monitoring these chances and making changes as necessary.
    • Stealing affinities upon killing a character in PvP has changed:
      • If the dead character only has one affinity total, they will not lose that affinity and the killer will not gain an affinity.
      • If the dead character has more than one affinity, then a random one is lost and may go to the killer.
        • If the dead character has more affinities in that skill than the killer, then the killer will gain that affinity 100% of the time.
        • Otherwise, the chance for the killer to gain the affinity is dependant on the difference between the number of affinities in that skill each player has (before the dead character loses the affinity).
        • If the difference is 0, the chance is 50% for the killer to gain the affinity. Difference of 1 is 25%, difference of 2 is 12.5% and difference of 3 is 6.25%.
      • If an affinity is lost by the dead character and none gained by the killer, then the killer will receive a timed affinity in that skill that will last for a week.
    GM Changes:
    • GM Tool: Arch+ now has the ability to remove a single recipe from a single player as well as removing a named recipe from a player.

    • Bugfix: Fix for bulk bins taking the 5% tax tick immediately when moving them from deed to off deed.

    • Example of this is a FA weapon causing multiple burn wounds to the same position on the body if hit there multiple times.

    Wurm Devblog: 1.6 incoming! https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/9/wurm-devblog-16-incoming/ https://wurm-unlimited.com/blog/9/wurm-devblog-16-incoming/ Thu, 05 Apr 2018 23:35 CEST
    Retrograde here with a quick overview of some of the major features coming with 1.6 which is due out tomorrow! There are a few bugs that will be addressed in a later update some time next week, but since this update has been delayed long enough, it's time to check it all out! This update is planned for around midday CET on the 6th April, so not long now!

    Make sure to update any mods and check with server owners about any potential issues!

    Archaeology and Restoration

    Archaeology and Restoration are two new skills coming in this update!

    When using a trowel on ground tiles, you'll be able to find fragments of items across the lands of Wurm. As you search you will find remnants of ancient, long forgotten deeds and also learn a little history about the deeds and those who occupied them.

    Investigating will only yield small fragments, and you'll need to work on them with a chisel and brush to identify what they might be. once you've worked out what the fragment is you'll have to piece together multiples of the same fragment in order to restore the item to its former glory.

    Items restored via Archaeology and Restoration have the chance of having unique runes, as well as multiple enchants that are normally not possible via enchanting.

    There are also Archaeology only statues, such as the statues of the four deities of wurm, as well as various creatures:



    Valrei Changes

    There are a fair few changes going on with the Valrei system on both Epic and normal server systems so we’ll just touch on a few of the main points for now.

    First up, and one of the larger changes to how Valrei works, if that player gods will no longer roam the board on Valrei. Players that use the key to the heavens will still exist on the Valrei board while they are demigods, but once they fully ascend to godhood they will be removed from the board to live out their days as gods. Existing player gods will also be removed from the board when this update goes out, however they will still provide missions and all other benefits of being a god to players. Missions for player gods will act as other missions, but will not affect the Valrei board in any meaningful way - instead they will just provide bonuses and rewards to the players completing the missions as normal.

    We’ve also revisited all mission types, difficulties and rewards to hopefully be a bit better than currently. Each mission type will have its own related difficulty levels and rewards scaling with difficulty. More info will be available in game for these missions than currently available, showing what needs doing and what the player (and god) will receive when the mission is completed. Successfully completing a mission for a god will cause the next mission to spawn at a higher difficulty (and higher reward for completion), where failing a mission will cause the next mission to be at a lower difficulty.

    Related to this is a rework of how end of scenario rewards work, where the rewards have been split up into different tiers based on scenario participation by the player. More participation in missions across the scenario will mean a higher chance to get a reward at the end of the scenario, and also a higher chance to get a better reward than those with less participation. The god that wins a scenario will also have a reworked reward system over what it currently used.

    We’ve also changed how the entities on Valrei fight each other when they move. Currently the entities on Valrei have two stats for their attack and vitality - these stats are used in fights when one entity tries to leave a tile that contains an enemy. These stats will be completely changed and reset in this update to instead be related to the 7 characteristic skills that are in game - Body Strength, Body Stamina, Body Control, Mind Logic, Mind Speed, Soul Strength and Soul Depth. All of these stats will be used in a more complex fight system where the entities can move around a smaller game board with various actions available to them - such as ranged attacks, casting spells, and melee attacks. Once a fight occurs, a history of it is then saved on the server and will be available to players in game where you will be able to watch a replay of the battle and see exactly how your favourite god lost (or won!)



    Coloured armour

    Another long long desired feature is the ability to dye and colour armour. Allowing players to show off their own style and customise further, we're really excited that this has come to fruition! 



    We're keen to see what fashion sense Wurm Unlimited players have (or don't) so make sure to share your results with us too! 


    Bulk movement

    Another thing coming with this update (there's so many things!) is the ability transfer items between bulk containers without constant clicking! Moving from one container to another will trigger a timer, that moves as many as you can carry each second (ignoring 100 item count, just weight limit). This will surely make Shifting contents of bulk storage a breeze (and save those wrist injuries!)

    Leaky roofing begone!

    This last update introduced a long desired feature, and one of the benefits of the new client, rain occlusion! This means that rain will no longer show indoors! This has been a long frustration for many a wurmian, with leaky roofing leading to poor sleep and all sorts of maladies, but no more.
     

    Drag to container


    I'm sure absolutely everyone has had to move items between containers in the past, so I don't need to go into detail how annoying it can be managing big windows as you shuffle it all. Reducing the amount of windows needed open is one focus of ours with the new UI works, and we'll be introducing a new feature within the next update



    Normally to drag items into a container, you will need to have the window of the container with the items in it open as well as a window of the recipient container. With this new feature, you'll be able to drag items directly from the window of the container with the items in it onto the model itself, it will then place the items inside the container

    Affinities

    As we all know, (or for those who don't) affinities grant a 10% skill gain bonus to the skill they're attached to. The existing mechanic with affinities is each player starts with one (hidden until premium), but it can be lost through a death to an enemy kingdom player when above 20 fight skill.

    With the next update, we’ll be changing how affinities are gained and lost, as well as expanding on a more PvE friendly mechanic as well.,

    Firstly, we’ll be introducing the ability to gain new affinities via the use of skills, with a small chance to gain any affinity of a skill you’re using, including characteristics, parent skills, and sub skills.

    Secondly, gaining affinities via PvP will be changed to take into account the killer’s existing affinities in that skill, where there will be an increasing chance to not gain the affinity lost by the deceased depending on the number of affinities the killer has in that skill. This will mean neither the deceased or the killer will get that affinity.

    We’ll also be making some changes to how the overkilling mechanics in PvP work, so alt abuse is less prevalent. Firstly with overall kills on a single character being taken into account rather than just the number of kills on that character from a specific other character, and secondly with tweaking how the existing overkilling timers work.

    Forge cleaning

    A long running request has been to have a way to utilise forges in order to generate ash, and in the next update we'll be adding the ability to collect ash out of unlit forges

    It will take a few things into account including firemaking skill, and we'll have the full details available in the patch notes

    Shiver me Timbers

    A long long time ago, on a server far far away, each boat wood type had their own textures, from cedar to willow to olive (the best). This was all changed with the addition of new models such as ships and bulk storage, but that may soon change...




    Dye improvements




    With this update, we'll be introducing the ability to dye the sail separately to the rest of the ship, requiring less dye, and allowing for greater showing off, the colours are more vivid, and don't turn the boat the entire shade too, meaning you can show off your wood type AND favourite colour.

    But also...



    Yep, the personalisation doesn't end at sails, we've also added better dye systems to many things, allowing you to colour the cushions of your chair, the sheets of your bed, and most importantly, banners!

    Metal types

    With the work on introducing shaders for wood types, we began to expand our horizons in ways the new shader system could be used, as well as some long term projects we've been wanting to implement for some time, and next update, they'll be here!

    We'll be introducing shaders for metal types as well, from silver to gold to steel and bronze, metal weapons, shields, tools will all have the shade of the metal used to make them.

    but there's one slight problem! Most metal items are limited to either just iron or steel, or very limited in terms of metal choice, which renders the shader system a little less effective.. but not anymore.


    Coming in the next update, we'll be introducing the ability to craft many metal items from any metal, rather than just iron or steel. Be it a bronze hatchet, a brass rake, a copper halberd or lead great helmet, you'll be able to create your custom items and show them off! Some items such as nails and ribbons, as well as altars will still only be craftable using their current recipes however.
    Each material will have slightly varying properties compared to iron, as shown below:

    A little to the left

    if you've ever tried placing an item in just the right spot on the ground, you know it's a major hassle of pushing, pulling, gently pushing and pulling, swearing, crying and throwing cobs of corn at it, but that's about to change

    In the next update, you'll be able manually place items on the ground! Simply select drop > place via the menu, and you may move an image of the item around. Holding ctrl while moving will align to small grids, while holding alt will moving will move in larger grids. Scrolling the mouse wheel will rotate the model. Once you have lined up the perfect place, simply left click, and it appears exactly where you intended!

    This can also be used on items existing in the world already, simply right click > place. If the item is too heavy to pick up normally, you will automatically move it in push motions, with the distance moved depending on total weight of the item.




    That's by no means all that's coming in 1.6, and it's simply way too big to include it all in one post, the full notes are currently available via the beta notes, but will be again posted when the update goes live.

    As always, keep on Wurming!
