Devblog: Where's the update?

Greetings!

After a brief Christmas break, the Wurm team is back in the saddle for another big year of Wurm, but first, let's touch on the late 1.3 update.

1.3 Delays

1.3 was released to Wurm Online on the 22nd of November, and we entered a phase of bug fixes and tweaks over the next month or so, with a scheduled release close to Christmas for Wurm Unlimited. The problem we encountered was that the scale of the changes to databases and other systems were quite large, and took much more time than anticipated to adapt to Wurm Unlimited. We're also future-proofing the system as to avoid any potential further issues with future major updates to database systems.

Ontop of that, we've had a few fairly major bugs occur from 1.3 that we must address prior to it coming to WU. The effects of these bugs are kept in check by our development team having direct access to the database to make changes and correct issues that arise leading to a short turnaround for any players affected, but releasing this to Wurm unlimited would be irresponsible at best, and disastrous at worst.

I know you're all champing at the bit for a taste of what is to come, 1.3 is a huge update with a whole ton of new features and items that all rely on each other. This means we can't split the update into several releases, as they all rely on major changes that cannot be seperated.

We know it is frustrating to have the update delayed and we share your disappointment in not having it out already, but we can assure you that we are working extremely hard on this and will have a beta up as soon as the major roadblock issues have been addressed.

Other works
With that said, there's a fair bit that is also in the works for 2017, of course the new client renderer is undergoing the final bugfixing phase with the few remaining major bugs being addressed prior to the release of that for WU and making it the stable client in WO but that's not all.

Those of you who follow the Wurm forums will already know that a major update for 2017 will focus on an overhall of the user interface, bringing it up to a more modern look and much more functionality which has been a major issue for those who have been trying out the game. We're also looking at improving the server launcher UI to make getting into the game much easier and intuitive.


That's not all though! We're also in the process of identifying other areas we can work on based on feedback and reviews, and will be sharing some of that as the weeks go on, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for that, and as always, keep on Wurming!

November Devblog! Things are heating up in the kitchen

Greetings wurmians!

I've dragged myself away from the kitchen to bring you all the news and info from our Wurm Online 1.3 update, giving you the low down on what to expect in the next Wurm Unlimited update!

Wurm Online launched version 1.3 (the cooking update) on the 22nd of November, and we've had huge amounts of feedback and tweaking since then, addressing various bugs and issues, as well as balancing and adjusting based off feedback, we're continuing to work on that to ensure that things are smooth before moving to a Wurm Unlimited beta, but I'll go into that more shortly.

We've shared a whole bunch of teasers about what's coming in the next update, with the release of it all into Wurm Online this means it's all available on our site! Check out the major notes at http://www.wurmonline.com/2016/11/22/wurm-online-1-3-update-patch-notes-22nov16/

Runes
Those of you who follow Wurm Online might be aware of our Jackal events, rifts which spawn the curious beasts of jackal and various resources.

From these resources runes will be able to be crafted that provide various bonuses, from a ql boost from harvesting, to faster speeds in winds, or even larger volumes!

While runes will be available to crafted in Wurm unlimited, the resources required will need to be spawned in by a GM, as the Rift mechanics are only in Wurm Online which is why we haven't touched on these before.
The ability for resources to spawn in the wild is being looked at as a possibility for you all though.

Recipes
Of course, One of the major changes in this update is how cooking and recipes work, instead of a few basic meals that aren't affected by their ingredients, the new system will heavily depend on what you put in, with plenty of different combinations meaning many different things to cook, but thats not all.

Wurm Unlimited will be coming with an initial release of about 80 or so new recipes, covering a lot of the old combinations as well as a few new ones as default, but there's a unique system in place that places customisation in your hands.

Recipes can be stored as specific files and will be loaded from a folder within the server configuration, to add a recipe, simply place it into the recipe folder and launch the server!




While it may look a little confusing at first, This format will allow those inclined to create a tool to generate recipes, or allow those who wish to do it themselves to write them, and simply place them in the folder.

We'll have more info on how to use this system when the beta is released.

We'll be creating a space on our forums at forum.wurmonline.com to allow for those who wish to share their recipes, as well as to discuss them and collaborate.

Creating and sharing your recipes will be easy as pie!


WU Beta

This update is a huge one, both in terms of new content, but also behind the scenes changes. With the addition of all the new items, recipes, and other various features comes new database tables and such, which I'm sure you all understand we need to make sure works perfectly with existing WU servers. With this in mind we'll be spending the next few weeks addressing that, making sure that by a time a beta comes out it will allow server admins to update and test backups of their servers to ensure they run smoothly.

This does mean that the cooking update will take a little while to come out, but there's a lot to look forward to, that's for sure!

And don't forget...
This of course isn't all that's coming with the major update, we'll also have the following:
  • Improvements to various Epic settings, including improving dragon armour with leather, and how missions work.
  • Bees!
  • Removal of decay from decorations on deeds with over 30 days upkeep.
  • Chopped vegetables will now give ql/20 favour when sacrificed for all priests. Libila priests will have slightly different favour, giving ql/33 * potency for healing cover items.
  • New shield skilling system.
  • Message boards!
  • Barrel and Wine barrel racks to allow for easier storage.

As you can see, there's a ton coming with this, and we're hard at work preparing to see it come to beta soon.

To coincide with this update we'll be giving away 10 Steam keys on Facebook, and 10 keys on Twitter, so make sure to follow us and keep an eye out for that!
