May Devblog!

Hi Everyoine!

It's been a bit since we last caught you up with all that's going on in Wurm Unlimited, but I'm here with the latest news for you all to enjoy!

This months devblog focuses on a few things new to Wurm Online and a few things in the works, so lets get started!

New Bridge types
With the new housing types coming out, we'd be remiss to not strike while the iron is hot and expand on this! We'll be introducing the new material types for bridges in a coming update!

Pottery brick


Round stone


Highway system
Teased a few weeks ago, a new highway system will be coming to Wurm. This system will allow players to designate highways and protect them from vandalism! They will also be used to denote routes to nearby villages, as well as give information about how far it is to each village connected.


Deeds will be linked by catseyes, which form the backbone of the system, waypoints will denote junctions, allowing morew routes to be connected.

There will also be a few new GM and admin tools for tracking roads and systems too! This opens up potential new features that utilise the highway system, you'll have to wait and see what comes of it!
The Almanac

An almanac is an old guide used for all sorts of record keeping, and in wurm, it can be used to track harvest times for fruits and bushes! PLayers will be able to study a harvestable tree, bush or trellis while it is in season, and will be able to generate a report based off this. This can then be used to track upcoming harvest times with quality of the report determining how accurate it is.

With the reports inside the almanac, players will be able to check what's in season by typing /almanac as a command, and will get all the info on what's ripe!
New bushes
Ever wonder where blueberries, raspberries, and lingonberries come from? well fear no more! We've added these three new bush types to come in with the next update, bringing a lot more shrubbery to a neighbourhood near you. While blueberries and raspberries can be planted from sprouts found foraging, lingonberry will only grow on tundra, and sprouts cannot be found, you'll need to set up a dedicated tundra spot for them to grow on.



Cave paving and cladding
Old reinforcements are boring, and we've decided to change that up! With the next update, you'll be able to decorate and pave reinforced cave walls and floors, with all the new wall types and pavement types as well!
Plain Stone

Round Stone



Pottery brick


Floors can be reinforced, then prepared with mortar and paved, where walls are reinforced, and then constructed upon similar to house walls.

This update will also include tile borders and corners in caves, meaning you can see the slopes!  These changes  add even more design options to underground living, and there's even more to come! What is coming? You'll just have to wait and see...

Until then though, keep on Wurming!

Patch Notes

Some older user generated maps will have some issues with the new sandstone veins, as the map generation tools did not count on new veins being added. if you find Sandstone veins having only 50 or so ore in them, please use this tool from the forums:

Changes and Additions
  • Oleander can now be used as a herb in cooking
  • Gates and doors that both players can move through will no longer block attacks
  • New method for getting rid of unwanted hedges:
    • Hedges can now be cut down similar to trees and bushes with a cut down action or the CUT_DOWN keybind.

  • Dredging additions and changes:
    • You can now flatten and level with a dredge.
    • You must not be embarked when using flatten or level.
    • When dredging from a boat, the dirt/sand/clay will go directly into the hold if there is room. (You must have room in the dredge for this to happen).

  • Keybind MILK added.
  • Hot cross buns have been added as a recipe.
  • Distributed Java has been updated to the newest version
  • Golden Mirror added:
    • The golden mirror will allow a one time gender change and face customisation.
    • After being used to change genders the mirror will only allow the face customisation .
    • Upon the face customisation being completed the mirror will be consumed.
New housing addition
    • Will act like marble or slate vein.

Siege weapon changes:
    • New algorithm now used for Catapults/Trebuchet projectiles that properly takes into account starting power, gravity and firing angle of the siege weapon:
    • Starting power determined by number of winches for catapult, and loaded amount for trebuchet – power directly relates to starting velocity (so 20 winches is 20m/s).
    • Arc of the projectile is checked along it for any walls, floors, bridges or fences it hits, otherwise it will travel the full arc until it hits the ground.
    • Anything within a small radius of the landing position will take damage, radius depends on the size of the thrown projectile.
    • Weight, quality, and final velocity of the projectile all add into how much damage it deals to the things it lands on – metal and stone projectiles do the most damage.
    • Projectiles still have a maximum of 20 damage per shot.
    • Added new actions to catapults and trebuchets to allow changing of the firing angle.
    • Firing angle defaults to 45 degrees, can be changed to be between 5 and 85 degrees.
    • Added messages when winching and changing the firing angle of a catapult or trebuchet that will give an approximate firing distance of the projectile.
    • Action time for winching now takes skill into account, will be 33% faster at 100 skill.
    • Projectile landing messages now give a full breakdown of everything they hit, and how many of each thing – as well as naming which structure(s) received damage.
    • Rewrote how the checks worked for roofs and floors
      • A projectile that clearly passes through a roof now should hit it and land there.
      • The box it uses for this isn’t exact to the model, so if the projectile is going over the roof, try lowering your angle or power slightly
      • landing closer to the bottom of the roof than the top of it will be more accurate.
    • Minimum 21 body strength to use it.
    • Uses the War Machines skill for skill checks – action time is 33% faster at 100 skill with a base timer of 30 seconds.
    • Checks a short area in front of the ram for anything to hit, first thing it hits will take damage. Area should be closely lined up with the model.
    • Can only be used by one person at any time, user must be quite close to be able to use it.
    • Damage dealt increased by the ram quality and the skill check result.
    • Ram does double damage to walls underground.
    • Citizen or ally with destroy wall permissions will deal bonus damage.
    • Cannot be used on steep slopes.
    • Added a 30 second window between somebody uses a battering ram and another person being able to drag the ram. The user of the ram should be able to drag the ram within that window still.
    • Turrets and archery towers now have increased range based on their quality – up to 5x their base range at 100ql.
    • Turrets and archery towers will now shoot faster based on quality – up to 33% faster at 100ql.
    • Turrets that fail to fire anything when they have a chance to will now do a firing animation without sending out a projectile.
    • Changed the projectile starting positions of turrets and archery towers to line up with their models – This should allow them to fire from anywhere they have proper line of sight to a target.
    • Turrets should now be able to fire from the top of a house or bridge
    • Archery towers now have a damage falloff, the further they fire, the less damage will be dealt
    • Only one archery tower or turret will fire at any one tile (and anything on it).
    • Which one will fire at a tile is determined by the QL of the tower or turret, and the distance to the tile, in a similar manner to how altars work.
  • Added a 3x bonus to damage when bashing arched walls manually.
  • Dye requirement for large and small crates has been reduced to 2.50kg and 1.50kg respectively.
  • Merchants who move on due to poor business (self-dismiss) will now return their goods and coins inside a backpack through the mail system instead of returning each item individually.
  • Cultivate option is now present on grass, steppe and mycelium tiles.
  • You will now be able to forage and botanize on mycelium tiles.
  • Planter racks will no longer fit in large storage units. Plants inside planter racks currently in large storage units will no longer grow.
  • God conversion changes:
