WU - Wurm Unlimited / [SERVICE NOTICE] RE: New Guard Towers
« on: October 17, 2017, 04:28:51 PM »
This is a public service notice regarding the new kingdom guard towers. There is a bug in the code we are currently trying to identify that breaks the tower's ability to spawn guards if you rotate the tower.

Simply building the tower, imping it, etc. and the tower will function as intended. Keep in mind the door of the tower will face opposite the direction you are facing towards when you complete it, so you have the need to rotate it for now.

We'll post an update once the issue is resolved here and the weekly update/patch notes report.

EDIT: Testing indicated a tower that has been rotated with fix itself after a server reboot, and guards will spawn properly.

WU - Wurm Unlimited / Re: Proposed changes to Stjerna and Stjarna
« on: October 16, 2017, 07:03:03 PM »
You know looking that over again I think that was the wrong spell. All priests have break altar so I made a goof there. I need to reduce Stjerna's total spell count by one for fairness so need to choose something else. Looking over my old notes again I think I intended to remove Tentacles since its similar to the other tile spells and Stjerna will already have Ice Pillar and Tornado for AOEs.

If someone has another suggestion feel free.

Greetings Midnight Wurmians,

This is your weekly maintenance and updates report [server patch notes] for the week of Monday, October 16th, 2017.

NEW FEATURES, MODS, FUNCTIONALITY, ETC.:

New Mods & Updates:

More new content this week! A feature that has been LONG requested.... Kingdom Guard Towers!!!!
Yes you too can own a shiny new JK, MR, or HotS style tower for the low low price of just .... wait sorry was channeling my infomercial voice. Anyhow you now have a choice when building your guard towers. Eventually we will have at least 2 more introduced to the game but these 3 are ready now so they are coming out now! For those of you who don't know what the other towers look like please reference the wiki article that has screen shots. https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Guard_Tower
Note: While I typed this I clicked the wiki article and noticed the image is outdated. The physical models are the same but the 3 other kingdom towers have had their "skins" refreshed since this image was taken. They look better then the wiki article. I guess like the other stuff I need to get around to taking some screenshots.

The new towers are available under the "Towers" category in your crafting recipe book, and require identical materials to the freedom tower.

As for the content we've released over the last nearly two months: In the example materials village in Twilight all the flags, and banners are on display so you can see them up close. Additionally, for a limited time all the wagons are on display until I can get decent screenies taken and uploaded for them somewhere. I'm not wanting to leave them there forever because well its a lot of messy clutter, and looks a bit trashy. Since tents can not be placed on a deed I don't have an easy way to display them however they are on display on our test server should you want to see them.

Voting Rewards: Last week the Midnight Wurm Control Panel went live. What it can do from a player point of view will not be a lot initially but will continue to gain features as we go. The big initial feature is the ability to receive a reward for voting for our server to the tune of 10 copper per day. While that isn't a lot by itself that can add up to nearly 3 silver over the course of the entire month! You can claim this reward on any of your characters each day, and of course only 1 reward per day. Your character you wish to receive the reward must be online at time of redemption of reward. Upon receiving your reward it will display your bank balance so its a great way to see what you have. Also information about all the villages will be available and some basic info about your toons. Future planned features is the ability to check your live bank balance, details about each of your characters, and more. I'll be updating the website with this link later today. The URL for the Control Panel is http://gs1.mwmgamers.org/wucp

UPDATES

Upgraded the main and test servers to 1.5.2.1 this is only a version bump for the servers no actual changes exist. Fun wurm fact about wurm versions. 1 is the core version number, 5 represents the 'major' branch version, the 2 represents the 'client' version, and the final 1 represents the 'server' version. It's a easy to know if there are client or server changes. So for example when 1.5 went live we had version 1.5.0.1 there have been two client updates hence we are now running 1.5.2.1.

Tweaks and Adjustments:

None this week.

IN THE PIPELINE:
Currently we have a number of projects in the pipeline but here's some details on what is close to breaking the surface and becoming a reality within the next 30 days.

    More Potables: A mod author released a mod recently 95that will save me coding work. One of the things I've had on the roadmap is making some more things be plantable in the planters. Additionally this is a big help for long term development because I plan to introduce new plants and some new recipes! To quote a favorite Star Trek: Voyager quote of mine by Capt. Janeway: "There be COFFEE in that nebula!" I love tea but the server requires coffee plain and simple haha. So anyhow I've moved this mod to the test server to begin working with it and running it through the paces. Except this to be released if all goes well by month's end.

    Spell Changes: We finally have the ability to control the religion system, and spells in an intelligent way. What this means is we will soon be making the changes to the twin gods we have always planned to execute since their inception. The deities spreadsheet linked on our main page has always outlined the proposed changes, so folks were always aware of what would be coming down the road. Since enough time has passed the changes in the spreadsheet are not considered final and will be re-evaluated. Once the final changes are drafted I will post the notice here in the weekly update and start a forum post thread specifically on the subject so you can provide feedback. Lastly, in the end if you are unsatisfied with the changes to the twins those that are followers of the twins will be granted a free god change without loss of faith. 10/16 Update - The proposed changes have been updated on our deity data spreadsheet, and discussion is open for comments about your support for, disagreement with, and suggestions. http://mwmgamers.com/forums/index.php?topic=28884.0

GENERAL HOUSEKEEPING ITEMS, RAMBLINGS, ETC.:
MONTHLY RAFFLE: As you should all know as a thank-you for voting for our server https://wurm-unlimited.com/server/2668/ each month I give out a prize to 2 lucky voters. There are 2 categories a 15 votes and up (receives a sleep powder), and a everyone category (receives set of 80ql horseshoes). Once the 15+ winner is selected the are then excluded from the everyone category for that month. The winner is announced here after the first maintenance of the new month.

We missed our goal of 200 votes by a mere 15 votes last month. I know we can do it this month! We get special acknowledgement for hitting certain thresholds on the site so let's make it happen. Rock on folks!

STORE UPDATE: I'm please to announce some new highly requested items in our server store. We have added Silver Mirrors that you can purchase so you can now change your character's appearance if you feel you goofed something up or just want a fresh look. (In the future we are also looking to offer an item to allow you to change your toon's sex as well).

Additionally I have added the HotA statues which was the #1 most requested items from our recent player survey results. As that statues serve as a light source at night they come in a standard white glow or for $1 extra you can purchase them with a custom RGB color value of your choosing.

http://wurm.mwmgamers.com/store.html

EDIT: As a special limited time bonus through the end of the month if you purchase 2 or more statues you will receive a free sleep powder. Buy 3 get 2 powders, etc.

GM MERCHANT: - For October we are featuring "Yellow Potions". All potions have been created at 99ql and last ~33 minutes per use. See this wiki entry for full details on this fun and entertaining illusion potion. Each potion is just 15c. https://www.wurmpedia.com/index.php/Yellow_potion  As always the monthly special has a buy limit of 2 per player please. For this month there is no buy limit on the potions, and we will continue to restock the trader throughout the month as needed. These are just fun so enjoy. All other items still remaining on the merchant from previous specials have no buy limits.

COMMUNITY ASSISTANTS: Applications for additional community assistants are still open. The form can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/aO88EqM80cYVwW9C3
This is a volunteer position and can be done while on your regular toon, doing your own things. No special character is required for this position. The short description of the position is a person who assists the community by monitoring the CA HELP and Freedom chat channels. They provide answers to questions to the best of their ability about the game mechanics and the community. Provide links to relevant wiki pages, or forum posts as relevant. Assist the Game Masters with basic player support tasks as able/willing, and responds to or adds notes to support tickets within their scope. We are currently looking for 2 additional individuals from any region.

Please join me in welcoming to our CA team:
Valdred

Valdred has been a player of wurm for even longer than I and you don't find as many wurm veterans that old mature wise, meh you get the idea that have stuck with the game this long. He's been wurming since the 'gold' release and that's way over a decade. That's really saying something. We are very excited to have him join the team and assisting you our players customers.

RL/OTHER: We are currently running an auction for a SUPREME rarity large cart which runs thru next Thursday. As a note rarity does effect max vehicle speed. Check out the post for more. http://mwmgamers.com/forums/index.php?topic=28879.0

FUN FACT: There are 900 potato fields on the server right now, the highest of any one crop. Currently there are 5,529 total tiles being used by fields on the server. (Wemp and cotton hold the 2nd and 3rd place).

As always if you need support always feel free to open a support ticket in world so that your GM team can track your request and respond in a timely manner.

WU - Wurm Unlimited / Proposed changes to Stjerna and Stjarna
« on: October 15, 2017, 12:05:13 PM »
Thank-you for your patience as its taken longer to get this out than planned. The time has come to make some changes to our twin gods in the name of balance and god theme.

Stjarna came out pretty balanced from the start so I'm proposing minimal changes to her. She is also the only god to be truly neutral at 0 in her alignment. She has spells one could consider both good and evil and that fits.

Stjerna on the other hand has full positive alignment like Fo yet has a number of evil (Lib spells) that simply don't make sense with his lore. Stjerna ideology wise is a blend of Fo and Vynora, a healer, command of water and plants, and watcher of creatures and man.

Reference our lore as a guide: http://wurm.mwmgamers.com/world.html

The Deity Data spreadsheet has been updated with my proposed changes. This thread is to discuss those changes. Offer up your support of a change or lack thereof or counter proposal with a new idea. If offering a new suggestion be sure it keeps with the theme and explain why the change should happen and offer your logic behind it.

WU - Wurm Unlimited / Re: 1.5.0.1 Update and what you need to know

We are now live with 1.5.0.1

WU - Wurm Unlimited / 1.5.0.1 Update and what you need to know
« on: October 09, 2017, 09:24:38 PM »
The 1.5.0.1 Update went live an hour ago. It breaks several server side mods such as HotS Fixes so it is recommended you do not convert to Libila without the help of a GM until this is fixed. Existing Lib followers should have no issues. Also the Prospect mod is broke, so you will not be able to use Prospect inside mines for the time being.

Client wise it breaks a number of things. Our custom installer will need a bit to be updated so you'll need to update your mods manually. First, AGO's mod loader itself has a critical update as so some of the other mods. LiveMap for example will not work until updated and will crash your game. Below are the links where you can download the 2 downloads you'll need.

Download the zip file, and expand it somewhere then copy the contents into your Wurm installation folder.
By default of most people this will be where ever Steam is installed C:\Program Files\Steam or C:\Program Files x86\Steam
then \steamapps\common\Wurm Unlimited\Wurm Launcher is where you want to copy the files in the mod loader download. For Live Map be sure to goto the "Mods" folder under Wurm Launcher and copy its contents there.

https://github.com/ago1024/WurmClientModLauncher/releases/tag/v0.5-beta2

https://github.com/ago1024/LiveHudMap/releases/tag/v1.6-beta1


Dougan has already updated our custom-installer download it via its usual link. [MwM]-Custom-Mods-Installer

These are the releases for the beta version so there will most likely be another update in the next day or so from AGO to the final versions. We'll post information once this happens and get our installer updated as quickly as possible.

So we are live with 1.5.0.1. You will notice a few things right away shadows are different and all dyed items look WAY different. Also you can finally read the stupid small and large signs now. Also we pushed our custom graphics pack out tonight. You'll see a number of terrain changes that was announced previously now in effect after your client has downloaded our custom pack (you'll see after the second time you login). Dirt textures, tundra, gravel, etc. are updated. The loom, spinning wheel textures refreshes our out as well.

What's changed check the official patch notes: http://www.wurmunlimited.com/2017/10/10/live-version-1-5-0-1/

Greetings Midnight Wurmians,

This is your weekly maintenance and updates report [server patch notes] for the week of Monday, October 9th, 2017.

NEW FEATURES, MODS, FUNCTIONALITY, ETC.:

New Mods & Updates:

No new mods or in-game content this week.

What's next: So at this point new content releases will be on hold until the WU update is live. As many of you know last Thursday CodeClub released the 1.5.0.0 BETA and I began merging our code with the new code base and have been conducting a lot of testing the past 4 days. We are ready as we can be despite several mods being broken for the live release. We were expecting the live release today however they delayed the public update in favor of releasing the 1.5.0.1 BETA to fix a number of things that were borked in the other BETA release. On one hand I want the new content and want to get this over so I can get back to coding new stuff but on the other hand I've been saying since the beta came out this was RUSHED. Basically its only been available for 4 days and a few hours and that is a shotgun wedding if I ever saw one. They have not provided a new release date but I'd guess we are looking at later this week or next Monday at the latest providing there are no new issues. I need to do testing on this new beta now to make sure there are no new issues but I'm not expecting any as far as our code is concerned.

As soon as I know more it will be posted.

As for the content we've released over the last month and a half: In the example materials village in Twilight all the flags, and banners are on display so you can see them up close. Additionally, for a limited time all the wagons are on display until I can get decent screenies taken and uploaded for them somewhere. I'm not wanting to leave them there forever because well its a lot of messy clutter, and looks a bit trashy. Since tents can not be placed on a deed I don't have an easy way to display them however they are on display on our test server should you want to see them.

Voting Rewards: I'm pleased to announce the Midnight Wurm Control Panel is live. What it can do from a player point of view will not be a lot initially but will continue to gain features as we go. The big initial feature is the ability to receive a reward for voting for our server to the tune of 10 copper per day. While that isn't a lot by itself that can add up to nearly 3 silver over the course of the entire month! You can claim this reward on any of your characters each day, and of course only 1 reward per day. Your character you wish to receive the reward must be online at time of redemption of reward. Upon receiving your reward it will display your bank balance so its a great way to see what you have. Also information about all the villages will be available and some basic info about your toons. Future planned features is the ability to check your live bank balance, details about each of your characters, and more. I'll be updating the website with this link later today. The URL for the Control Panel is http://gs1.mwmgamers.org/wucp

UPDATES

None this week.

Tweaks and Adjustments:

Not technically a tweak or adjustment but I've added mediation rugs to the Twilight Cathedral so you have a place you can meditate while in the city now. Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, lol.

IN THE PIPELINE:
Currently we have a number of projects in the pipeline but here's some details on what is close to breaking the surface and becoming a reality within the next 30 days.

    More Potables: A mod author released a mod recently 95that will save me coding work. One of the things I've had on the roadmap is making some more things be plantable in the planters.

Janeway: "There be COFFEE in that nebula!" I love tea but the server requires coffee plain and simple haha.

    Spell Changes: We finally have the ability to control the religion system, and spells in an intelligent way. What this means is we will soon be making the changes to the twin gods we have always planned to execute since their inception.

Lastly, in the end if you are unsatisfied with the changes to the twins those that are followers of the twins will be granted a free god change without loss of faith. 10/2 Update - I've had a chance to review my old notes and have updated some information I should have a post out this next week detailing the exact changes and opening the floor for discussion. 10/9 Update - So I apologize I didn't have time this week with the abrupt launch of the beta to get the change details posted I will get those up this week, so we can discuss.

    Admin Phase 2: 8/14 Update - A few weeks ago we partnered with another developer on this project so that other server operators will be able to take advantage of project. We've already laid out a development plan and have begun work. 9/18 Update - Progress has been amazing and Alpha testing has begun. We hope to move the beta code to the live server in the next couple weeks, and release the new player side component. 10/2 Update - Moved project to beta status and rolled out to the live server for additional testing. 10/9 Update - Phase 2 is now complete. This phase will now make a number of administration task SO much easier. The final planned phase, Phase 3 is on hold for the next month to concentrate on some other areas.

More Guard Towers: Testings has been going well, and there are just a few minor details to work out regarding the release of the additional kingdom guard towers. Work is on hold until the WU update is complete but expect these coming soon after.

RL/OTHER: Not really much for this category today other than we had a record breaking number of players at War-Hour yesterday! We had 20 unique players on site at one time, not including a number of players who were online but didn't participate! That's amazing, rock on!

FUN FACT: There are currently 1,346 meals waiting to be eaten on the server, hiding in containers around the world.  8)

WU - Wurm Unlimited / Re: A sailboat to claim
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:55:00 PM »
Since this sailboat has been abandoned for over 3 months and there have been no takers since Erika kindly announced it's existence; I'm going to take a personal claim for the abandoned vehicle which I'd rarely do. If there are any other takers while the required "claim" period is running you are welcome to it. Otherwise if there are no takers I could use a boat in the north and will claim it myself.

Claim period starts date of this reply.

WU - Wurm Unlimited / [GM AUCTION NOTICE] One supreme large cart
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:38:21 PM »
In accordance to our abandoned property guidelines for rare and above goods....This is a public notice that a supreme quality (blue glow) large cart of 21.6ql is being auctioned off from our collection of abandoned goods inventory. Auction ends October 17th, October 24th, at 10PM EST/UTC-5 and a timer is provided below so you don't have to guess. Auctioned good is currently sitting in the cart park at the Twilight Public Crafting area. As a courtesy if the winning bidder is unable to "load" or have a vessel large enough to carry the cart; a GM will assist in the delivery of the cart for this particular auction.



Starting Bid: 5 silver
Minimum increment: 50 copper
Snipe protection: 1 hour
(Bids placed in the final hour of the auction will extend the auction by 1 hour, note the timer above will not extend automatically.)
Reserve Price: None
Buyout Price: Not Available

Rare cart versions often sell in WO for 10+s for a mild comparison. Vehicle rarity does effect speed.



EDIT: I should also point out this is the first supreme large cart (well actually first rare+ cart even) we ever had on the server, so it is a historical treasure. Auction extended a week since I forgot to add it to the weekly notes for exposure.
