September Devblog!

Hi everyone,

Another busy month here on the Wurm team, with the wonderful sights and smells of all the cooking changes (Okay, maybe just my imagination). We've a few things to go into this month so let's get started!

Combat and PvP update
This month saw a balancing update come in for PvP combat and various armour types, the way body strength works for Damage Reduction (DR) has been modified, and we've adjust the armour type DR's as well.

Body Strength Formula, linear line is old, curve is new.

Armour also carries bonuses for material type:
+10% for glimmer, +5% for addy, +10% for seryll
rare is 103%, supreme is 106%, fantastic is 109%

The aim of this update is to allow for some flexibility with armour options, as well as avoid the snowballing effect that body strength had on DR.

There's also been some changes to other functions, such as the ability to teleport to deeds via Karma and Meditation abilities can only be used after being a part of a village for at least 24 hours as well as other small changes.

The beta update will be out early this week!

New Rendering Engine update
Work continues on the new client renderer, with many bugs being interrogated and squished. We haven't forgotten about a WU release for this, but we do aim to ensure that the major stability bugs are ironed out before any testing on WU. so stay tuned!

Cooking sneak peaks
We've shown some teasers about the new cooking update, including new bushes and trees (Oranges!) and the addition of beer and other alcohol, we've also announced that this cooking update will also include the ability to store liquids decay free via sealing them, and also the removal of decay on decorational items on deed! That's a big one for me, and I'm super keen to be able to decorate my deed without worrying about decaying statues and the like!

The larder will slow decay on meals

Another interesting feature will be the recipe system!
Players who create a meal, can write down that recipe on papyrus using a reed pen filled with ink or dye, and then they are able to trade, mail or sell the recipe card, and allow other players to use them to learn new recipes.

Rumour has it that certain humanoid creatures in the wild also have their own unique recipes, ones that cannot be cooked without knowing how to make them...
Another WU specific teaser is that we are working on the ability to have server owners create their own recipes to go into the game! This means that if you run your own server, you can create your own meals for players to make!

That's it for this months review, we'll have more on the upcoming update next month, with a key giveaway in the works too, so make sure to keey your eyes peeled!

Retrograde & the Wurm team.

Slow pace community building game. Enjoy the rich crafting of items, and feel that you really did something.
Shape the land for your own liking, decorate and build your very own fortress, castle... or even a little shop if you like.

ps.: You need dedication!

This game......oh this game. I love it. The grind is real tho kids, like REAL. But once you get somewhere you really feel accomplished. Not for fans of games of instant gratification, this one you really gotta get to work, and learn and grow as a character, oh and do not go deep in the woods, there are some messed up creatures that will do nothing short of kill your face

If you enjoy the feel and general aspects that MMO games give you but you have always wanted a game that allows you to enjoy that completely offline solo and by yourself then this game is for you, This is a modified version of some MMO game called "Wurm Online" (i dont know much about that one since i dont have any interest in playing online only or multiplayer only games i just want to play solo offline hence why i have this game) but wurm unlimited takes everything that it has and allows you to enjoy it in your own little standalone game that you can enjoy completely offline by yourself in your own world of course you can invite your friends to join you if you wish much like how a minecraft server works and to top it all off you can even give yourself full game dev power and have full control over spawning,skills,items etc. So this game is without a doubt a great experience that you can enjoy completely offline and by yourself or even invite your friends to join you and no dumb monthly fees or in game transaction shops either! so go ahead and give wurm unlimited a try and i am almost completely sure you wont regret it :D

This game is a masterpiece!
It is so deep, so complicated and so slow, but it is all on the positive side. It has the deepest crafting system you ever saw. You can change the world around you literally, everything in the game can be modified, like teraforming and so on.
I really love this game and hope that more players will find out about this treasure of a game.

Dont let the bad reviews stop you from getting Wurm Unlimited the fact is this is a good game. now it does take some time to learn all of the controls. If your looking for somthing simple this isn't it. but, if you like a challenge and sense of accompishment its for you. its more advanced than most other sandbox games. but, you can find tutorials that are very helpful on you tube and once you get the hang of it. This game is very fun!!!

For the first time in my 33 years of life; I took the time to get a refund for this mistake I made. The trailers may be spot on, but in the 28 minutes I played; I found the game to be repetitive, tedious, and clunky to the max. Started the game with my usual settings of 1920-1080, started playing and realized that there is no way at all to change the GUI scale or even lower the resolution while playing. So all my interface text and chats were super tiny. That's a little thing (pun intended) and I could have restarted to fix it, no real challenge there. So I kept playing for a bit, the game tells you you're gonna need food and water, and that I can forage for food in the wild, and fill water at fountains in pots and such. Tried to do just that with a pot they start you with, couldn't figure out how. (Been playing MMO's for 15 years BTW) Everything you want to interact with, you have to right click, open a menu, select your section, select your subsection of what you want to do, then do it. While foraging for food in only 5 little plots of grass, I realized that this was gonna get old fast.

So, aside from the annoying, I pressed on for a tad longer; I started playing with the GUI elements, character screen, crafting menu, etc. found them to be outright overwhelming to a beginner of this particular game, couldn't find anything to show me MY stats (the STATS menu at the top shows useless info like distance walked and framerate crap only). So, when I picked up two random logs that I might need for crafting something later, my movement speed slowed down, but I have no idea why, or how much, because I didn't see any sort of carrying capacity or encumbrance level. As I continued to play around with GUI stuff, I saw one of of the menu tabs that said GUI; so I was a little excited for a bit, until I clicked it. When I did, all of my interface components disappeared for the purposes of screenshots or immersive play I imagine; but when I tried to hit escape, or every other key on my keyboard, it never came back. I am sure there is a way, but it would have been great to know what it was before being allowed to turn it off.

So, as I said, it's clunky. I am sure it has it's good points, but it sure wasn't the game for me. I had hoped this might be a good stopgap until Chronicles of Elyria was released; but it seems I shall look elsewhere. Happy gaming to all, and kudos if you have the willpower to play this one.

I played Wurm Online for a good 9 solid years. I was genuinely hitched on it.
Ultimately I burned out and after a good year hiatus I got Wurm Unlimited.

If you've ever played Wurm Online, that's the gameplay you're going to get, but with some changes you can make like the rate you gain skills, the amount of creatures, speed of crops.

Unfortunately, there really isn't much more than that.

This is probably one of the messiest pieces of software on the Steam store from a functional standpoint. You're given barely any maps to use in your servers, and if you want more you'll need to use programs that aren't packaged nor even mentioned in Wurm Unlimited to get them.

The actual launcher client for picking servers is pointless in its design, as it just shuts itself down once you're in and if you don't like a server you're going to get really annoyed when you have to keep relaunching the full thing to just pick a new one.

As for customization, this was clearly an extremely quick job when they decided to let Wurm be privatized. The UI is extremely annoying to navigate, it has search options when trying to spawn items that can't even search for things when you type them exactly right or only partially, you have to get the amount it wants to search for just right.

You want to customize something on your server? That means restarting of course. But not just the server. Turns out if you are playing your server you will be forced to shut down that client too before you can host a server again because the game is poorly integrated to cope with Steam relying on one-instance being up.

Wurm itself is a very *VERY* dated game and it's been suffering from that for a long time. It's received no quality-of-life improvements in the last few years, and for its age and graphical fidelity, it still has pretty horrendous performance on the CPU side of things.

It's a shame there's no really good modern alternative to Wurm, but it is time to admit this is just too old to work these days. The performance is horrendous even on CPUs like an i7 6700k, the UI is extremely dysfunctional and tough to use (nor can it even scale properly). They keep stacking features on overtime but it's just devolving into a mess that's struggling to still be called a program that can run.

Since it is now "unlimited" promising single players to get your own server, I purchased the game. Buyer beware. Look at discussions. People cannot work out how to get that 'own' server. I played Ark, 7 days to die etc etc and have been a gamer for more than 25 years, but according to some advice on the discussion of this it says to try 'simpler' games, i.e. calling me to dumb to play this game. Hence, I am so wise to cancel and ask for refund. Advise you to do the same.
