20/JUNE/2016 - BETA - 1.0.0.7 Update

Patch Information
We are pushing an update out to the beta branch to address issues regarding that branch before it moves to live. We apologize for the short notice, but as some of these changes are fixes for the much anticipated Cave Dwellings feature, we felt they needed to be included.

Due to the pack issues mentioned before, this will be another large download.

There are no breaking changes between client and server, so there is no version bump for this beta update. The version number will remain 1.0.0.7 as to not prevent clients from connecting to servers already running at 1.0.0.7. See the "Going forward" section below for an important note on future versioning.

While there are no breaking changes, it is strongly recommended that all servers update to 1.0.0.7 due to the bugs fixed by this update.

Edit
Beta has been updated to address the issue with the settings window not opening. It will also now be an always on top window to assist users when it would open behind the main game window.

Cave Dwelling fixes
  • Layer check for tile border actions.
  • Fix so merchants will appear in caves when used there.
  • Restricted traders to surface only.
General Changes
  • Removed the check preventing gift items from being created (these now require a GM account)
  • Fixed an issue that could sometimes allow for corpses to be looted on PvE
  • Added generic templates for rift items and creatures.
    Note: These were added so that Wurm Unlimited users can have fun with the rift feature assets without needing to mod them in.
  • Fixed issues with graphics.jar containing older .dae models and missing the rift assets.
Going forward
We realize that adding code changes without much lead time may make things difficult for server administrators. We will be moving to a new versioning system that will only force same version when there are breaking changes or if the administrator has strict versioning enabled. More information on this system will be made available after the next update to live.

This IMO is the best fantasy sandbox game in existance. It's not perfect. There is lots of room for improvement and the development is ongoing. You can see all the time I've spent with it (it doesn't include all the hours I've spent on the online version) and I'm nowhere near being bored with it yet.

I bought this game hoping for a good experience... I didnt get that thrill... It is a terrible game, just moving is clunky & the graphics is bad in todays terms...I understand its an old game revamped, but it should have stayed at the back of the game cupboard...
I would NOT reccomend this game to anyone...

Community: Very friendly, people construct towns together with complete strangers and form bonds just like in real life.
Gameplay: Dated, but very solid and compelling, deep. Turn-based combat mixed with realtime movement
Visuals: While not as highly detailed as newer games on the market, Wurm's forests and mountains feel very real and get many things right that other games never will.

Excellent game for those who desire a greater sense of depth, adventure, and progression from their survival sandbox type experience. Wurm Online (Unlimited is basically a player-hosted version of WO) is a very old game, and you will not find a game that plays quite like wurm to date... a very specific niche in gamefeel that makes this a hard game to recommend without one first trying out Wurm Online for free. Creation in wurm arises from necessity, players construct the very crucial highways and sideroads that span across the world, everything seems to have a purpose. This is because everything that isn't natural landscape is player-made, giving every server and every world on the server a very real, breathing sense of life and wonder. For those who admire an abundant amount of roles to fill and an elegant (if hard to get used to at first) style of crafting, where things can be constructed based on what makes physical sense and not just what the developers want you to put together, Wurm is possibly the perfect game.

Bottom Line: It's great for the people that find joy in living peacefully instead of constant looting and pillaging (although there are places for that in wurm), it's great for people who enjoy turn-based games like classic roguelikes who want a compelling multiplayer experience that is a bit more up their alley. Wurm is a great game for many people but it is certainly a very unique experience, which is not very easy to break into without a bit of effort.

Avoid unless your are comfortable opening ports on your router, going to your router website etc.
I wanted to play singleplayer. In Ark and any other game I achieve this by hiting one button.
In this game you will be told it can't connect and make sure to opeen ports etc.
If you are not a technical person or have no experience starting your own server then I reccomend avoiding this game because a major headache awaits you.
The fact that the game even requires you to do such a thing is mindboggling in this day and age.
Anyway goodluck, all the so called playtime on my accojunt if from being on the start screen about to toss my laptop out the window from frustration.

This is it!!

If you liked wurm online but could not stand the people, staff or their twisted version of PVP this is the game for you. I was not the only one who loved wurm but just could not stand the carebear focused mindset of the "played forever and willing to grief you to protect the pve they call pvp" player base. Rolf made a wonderful game but blew it listening to the wrong people. It is great to see that someone talked him or his funding company into releasing a game people could get behind.

Wurm is now a real game and no longer bound to a twisted world which makes it a joy to play again. There are 100s of private servers that are fully open to the public and many with useful mods; none have a monthly fee. Unlike WO, Wurm Unlimited gives the power of play back to the players and allows those with the means to host their own servers. If nothing else support Wurm Online and deny WO player base from runing anyone else's entertainment.

I do not actually have an hour of play time as my Steam record says -- that is actually just the accumulated time I spent today and yesterday watching the game continually tell me it could not connect. It doesn't count the hours I spent reading discussion posts, getting started guides and lookng for videos to figure out how I can launch this game.

I was really excited about this game. It looked to be exactly what I was looking for! Unfortunately, you cannot even start this game without some decent technical knowledge of how to set up servers, I know, you are thinking, "but I don't want to play on a server, I just want to play single-player as it is advertised." I WAS trying to just play single player as it is advertised but I still evidently needed a lot of technical knowledge to even do this. I read numerous posts describing how to trouble-shoot the launch that are so technical, I don't understand about half of the terms. I am an intellegent, college-educated adult. I can usually figure things out for myself, but this is ridiculous. Steam needs to put a warning in the store game description that this game is inaccessible to even a reasonably intelligent person if they have no advanced computer knowledge.

Per Wikipedia, Wurm Online started beta back in 2003 and went gold in 2006. In 2015, the developer completed a standalone version of Wurm Online and packaged it as Wurm Unlimited.

Pros
- I like the soundtrack and find it soothing. There's something soothing about mindlessly mining ore and listening to the audio that keeps you in a trance.
- Lots of parameters can be altered to generate the experience.

Pro and Con - depending on your perception:
- In depth crafting system. A large amount of resource gathering is required to build end products. Building ships, buildings, etc. involve quite a bit of resource gathering and give a sense of accomplishment when you finally build the finished product.
- Age of game. You get a product that has been around for quite a while. This means that people have worked on it for quite a while to develop the systems (Pro). It also means that you're not likely to get a "fresh interface" or the latest graphics (con)

Cons:
- Declining population:
Steam charts - http://steamcharts.com/app/402370
Steam charts - http://steamcharts.com/app/366220
Per the above, you can see that there's never been more than 2000 players online playing this game at one time. The population and number of servers continue to decline.
- Cost:
As of June 2016, the regular price for this game is $30 ($29.99 for those worried about a penny).

As far as would I recommend it to others... Overall, I enjoyed playing this game, but I would have to give it a no based on the current price tag and current decline of the population. Truthfully, this game is not for everyone. If you can find the game on sale at a significant discount, then it's worth picking up, but only if you like games that involve an extensive resource collecting experience where you don't mind finding yourself spending a considerable amount of time playing solo.

So, as a long time Wurm Online player, I saw several issues in WO that bothered me - but not a whole lot could be done about it. What Code Club AB / Rolf says goes, and that's sad because there's a lot more to this game that could be there and arguably should be but isn't.
This is the answer, and is definitely worth playing if you either A) know how to host a server, use all the tools and mods at your disposal (or create your own, even better) to make it something that's not just worth playing but a GREAT game, or B) know a server that does that all.
I play on Razor's Edge and I'm extremely pleased with it. Frankly I'd pay the sub fee for WO if Rolf was more like Razor; but I'm looking at WU as being Razor's Edge buy-to-play. Great staff, lots of cool stuff going on in the background, fantastic map design, quests, treasure and dungeons and such.. it's pretty ridiculous. If you're interested in checking that out, go take a look at http://razors-edge.enjin.com/ - whatever links and info you might want is pretty readily accessible there and at the forums (add forum to the end of that link).

But I've also played on my own server, hosted by a professional server hosting company, with a friend.
Wurm is for a certain kind of person, and though that niche is very small, it's definitely holding me through while I wait for Chronicles of Elyria.

Wurm Unlimited was the move that Code Club AB needed to make. It is what you make of it. If you have the thirty to spare, and don't mind basically playing a MUD/MUSH game with graphics, give this a shot.

Wurm Unlimited is a funner version of the online MMO, Wurm Online. Single player or multipleyer. Servers are very configurable. In Wurm Unlimited players can obtain many useful items which the online MMO dished out to only select players. This game can be fun solo, but grows so much more when teams come together to build large projects, shape terrain, and trade their crafts based upon their most level'd skills.

I describe this game to my friends as "very slow minecraft". I don't see the details and slowness as a bother. For me it makes the world larger and more immersive when i can't dig 1 cubic meter of dirt per second, nor carry around 3,500 cubic meters of dirt without breaking a sweat.

Enormous amount of depth. The learning curve is immense, and Wurmpedia is your friend. I play on Llama City server and the community there helped me a ton!

If you liked Minecraft even a bit, you'd love this game.

Great game. I feel it's not recognized enough by roleplaying communities and people who love sandboxes.

It can be tweaked in pretty much any way you like, only problem is finding a server that has an active community, a community you like, and all the skill modifiers you prefer along with being your preference of PVE or PVP.

I just started playing Wurm unlimited. No idea what i was getting into.. For the price i did get other games where you craft and survive for cheaper ( 7 days to die, rust empyrion galactic...). I bought it and decided to give it a fair shot! Honnestly it is a great game! Ok i admit coming in going wait a minute this aint wow no question mark telling me where the quest giver is. Old school kicking in. I can forage. I can build a fire but i need to chop wood make kiddling use flint and steel. etc..etc.. Omg this is so realistic and fun. I actuly need to find food and water to survive not just use to buff. I tried all mmorpg out there. I tried all kinds of survival sandbox game.. I love crafting, exploring questing. This game is a Gem! You really do it all! Understand there is no class you do what you want raise the skills that you want. Live the online game that you want.

This game is something everyone needs to experience for themselves. It takes the minecraft concepts of a voxel world/tiling system with the eve online depth to skill progression and the grind in years to acheive some of the few ultimate things there are in the best SANDBOX mmo experience of your lifetime. It will play differently for anyone who wishes to pledge their devotion to such a game, but it excels in a group setting whether it be wurm online ( unlimited is the offline/standalone edition) capable of setting up your own private and public dedicated servers. Each server can manipulate the rules in anyway it chooses amongst thousands of GM commands this game is limitless and the ultimate game that everyone has overlooked.

did i mention... that you can connect multiple servers together each with its own rules or keeping them all fluid for a "cluster"

I could write this review, and explain every detail that I have experienced, started to understand, understand that I still don;t understand everything but want to keep playing and learning and growing and just one more server tick, one more cycle of crop rotation, one more fence to be made or sword to be improved, god to be .......

If you do not like sandboxes, mmo's, rpg elements of all kinds, beautiful views, realism beyond anygame currently still playing, and monthly updates free of charge, then this game isn't for you. Lastly, this is not a short term or short attention span game in the slightest.
