180605 Patch Notes 5/JUN/18

Happy Anniverary!

  • Premium character can investigate on a tile during the week of the anniversary to get a “special fragment”.
  • Find 3 and identify them all before combining to get one of a few different gifts for Wurm’s Anniversary.
  • Chance to get a special fragment is 1/15 upon finding any other fragment.
  • Once combined, players won’t be able to combine another, or find any more special fragments.
  • Finding and combining these special fragments is available only during Wurm’s Anniversary week which will start on the 6th of June and end on the 13th.

Changes and Additions:

Archaeology changes:

  • Archaeology items can now be found in all metal types:
  • If you investigate and find a metal fragment that is NOT ore or a lump, it’ll get the “metal” material.
  • If the fragment you found would have had the steel material (instead of iron), it’ll get the “alloy” material instead.
  • Any existing iron fragments can be combined with metal fragments (they will be converted to “metal” material when you start the combine action.
  • Same deal with steel and alloy fragments.
  • When you complete an item from fragments of the metal material, the final item will have a chance to become any base metal type (iron, tin, lead, gold, silver, copper, zinc) depending on how well identified the fragments were – heavily weighted towards iron.
  • When you complete an item from fragments of the alloy material, the final item will have a chance to become any alloy metal type (steel, brass, bronze) depending on how well identified the fragments were – heavily weighted towards steel.
  • If alloy fragments are extremely well identified, upon combining they will have a small chance to come out as a moonmetal (seryll, glimmersteel, adamantine) – though steel is more likely again.
  • “metal” material fragments can only be combined with other “metal” fragments, and “alloy” material fragments can only be combined with other “alloy” fragments.
  • New: You can now create an archaeological journal to help record your investigations.
  • Add report pages to the journal by activating paper or papyrus sheets and right clicking on the journal – Add report.
  • 22 reports will fit into the journal.
  • Data will be added to your reports as you investigate and gather information.
  • New information will be added to the report as you continue to investigate.
  • Once you’ve found enough information for a single report, you will be able to use that report to help find that deed again whenever you want.

180426 Patch Notes 26/APR/18

PvP Affinities and rank rework:

PvP Rank:

  • Rank is now more evenly split between attackers. Rank gained/lost depends on the total average rank of all attackers versus the killed player.
  • If there is more than double the number of attackers worth of rank to be split, half will be spread evenly and the other half will be spread based on the rank of each attacker (lower ranked attackers will gain more than a higher ranked attacker).
  • If there is only enough rank to be split evenly, then no bonuses will be given based on attacker rank.
  • If there isn’t enough to be split evenly, then it will be split based on attacker rank only.
  • Killed player will lose 75% of the rank gained among attackers, instead of 100%.
  • (e.g. 20 rank split across 5 attackers: Each of the 5 will gain a base of 2 rank each. The other 10 rank will be split between attackers based on their relative rank – lowest rank attacker might gain 3 bonus (total 5), next 3 might gain 2 (total 4), and highest rank might only gain 1 (total 3). Killed player will only lose 15 rank instead of 20.

PvP Affinities:

  • Affinity will now go to a random attacker instead of the “max” attacker.
  • Changed the chance for the affinity to be lost without transfer: If the chosen attacker already has at least 2 more affinities in the chosen skill than the killed player (before the affinity is lost), they will only have a 50% chance to gain the affinity. If the do not gain the affinity, another random attacker will get the chance instead.If no permanent affinity is gained, a week long timed affinity will be given to a random attacker instead. Killed player will still lose the affinity.
  • All other attackers will gain a timed affinity of between 1 and 2 days in the skill of the lost affinity.
  • Champions will now lose an affinity on death even if it is their only affinity.
  • If a killed player doesn’t drop an affinity (due to only having one, or none as a Champion), a random timed affinity between 3 and 6 hours will be given to all attackers.

PvP Mission changes:

  • Properly check the correct region when building mission structures on pvp.
  • Lowered the number of players required for x player missions on pvp.
  • Fixed rewards string for build missions.
  • Changed create/sacrifice missions to take into account more number of items properly (bell tower is more than 2 items, for example).
  • PvP servers should get less “requires x players” missions at higher difficulties.

General changes

Bug Fixes:

  • Bugfix: Fixed the issue where all names on the UI friend list went blank instead of just the specified removed friend.
  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue which allowed you to plan a structure greater than your skill with no option to finalize or destroy the plan.
  • Bugfix: Bridge pavement is now removed when a bridge section is destroyed and reverted to a plan.
  • Bugfix: Recipe Cherries Jubilee should now be in everyone’s recipe book and can actually be made now.
  • Bugfix: Building door history is properly recorded whether or not you have an item activated during the lock/unlock process.
  • Bugfix: You should now be able to tar a floor board underwater to the same depth you can lay them.
  • Bugfix: Prying catseyes and waystones on deed should do more damage than off deed.
  • Bugfix: Fixed the double pray in the context menu for Nahjo on a water tile inside a cave.
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug which caused damage to water instead of a reduction of weight to the water during a failed tailoring advanced creation attempt. (Ex. Using water on a cloth shirt to make a black vested shirt).
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug which caused items with glow runes attached to never cool down.
  • Bugfix: Fennel seed should no longer show as being made with a mortar and pestle on any spice in recipes.
  • Bugfix: Freedom Isle missions should properly reset after 3.5 days if the mission is less than 33% complete. Note that this only applies to missions that gradually tick up (not tree, traitor, build etc missions).
  • Bugfix: Followup fix to the January 2018 change to further address the lag on Elevation.
  • Bugfix: Items should properly decay and cool off while inside saddle bags and saddle sacks equipped on horses.
  • Bugfix: Additional fix to check that the 5% tax is not taken from crates stored in racks as soon as they are moved off deed.
  • Note: This fix does require a tax check to occur on deed prior to taking off deed to correctly update the period between taxings.
  • Please allow a few weeks for everything to get a tick before reporting issues.
  • In the meantime, continue to move items from crates in racks to new crates in order to prevent the immediate tax deduction off deed.
  • Bugfix: Special wounds of same type and position will now stack, similar to normal wounds.

Example of this is a FA weapon causing multiple burn wounds to the same position on the body if hit there multiple times. The normal weapon wounds would mostly stack (with some randomly causing a new wound), but fire wouldn’t stack. That fire wound will now stack with any existing fire wound at that position.

  • Bugfix: Creatures should once again lose aggression if you walk a distance away and choose No Target.

  • Change: With the addition of adding a second dye color to some items, all dye amount requirements have been reviewed and adjusted.
  • Change: Adjusted affinity gain chances to favour skills more than characteristics. This change is aimed at avoiding the majority of affinities being characteristics and to result in skill affinities being more common. We will continue to monitor and adjust affinity chances in further updates if necessary.
  • Change: Meditation abilities that only affect yourself are no longer affected by deed permissions.
  • Change: Increased post grace period decay rate for offdeed red catseyes and waystones with only one valid link.

  • To place an item, it must be possible to be in your inventory (not heavy objects or vehicles).
  • Right click the item, and select drop > place.
  • Default move is free move with the mouse.
  • Holding CTRL will align to an 8×8 grid within a tile(64 squares within the tile).
  • Holding ALT will align to a 4×4 grid within a tile (16 squares within the tile).
  • Mouse scroll will rotate the object.
  • Holding shift while mouse scrolling will rotate slowly for better precision.
  • Improved loading times of settings window.
  • Wood type will now show on equipped wooden things such as mallets, bows, and shields

Once the pile is full, the resources will go into inventory. This is only available via the keybind which can be set in the console or in the keybind tab on the settings page.

Affinity System Adjustments:

Overkilling Changes: (Note: Overkilling is the mechanic that stops any skillgain, affinity gain, rank bonuses etc from killing a player too often)

  • The time limit of 3 hours between kills to trigger overkilling of another player (after having killed them at least 3 times already per player) has been increased to 6 hours.

Overall kills on a single player are now tracked, and will count as overkilling if killed more than 3 times by any other player in a short time.

  • When killed in PvP a player will gain a death count and a 3 hour timer will tick down.
  • If killed while that timer is ticking down, another death count will be gained, and the timer will reset to the 3 hour mark and start again.
  • After this timer has ticked down, a death is removed from their count and the timer will reset if any death counts remain.
  • If a player’s death count increases over 3, then any PvP kills against them will count as overkilling until that death count is again below 3.

Affinity Changes:

  • When using a skill premium characters will now have a small chance to gain an affinity in that skill upon a successful skill check.
  • On average once every 2 hours, a character will open a 15s window of time where every successful skill check will have a chance to gain an affinity in that skill. (e.g if you are mining during this window, you could gain an affinity in mining, pickaxe, miscellaneous items, body stamina, body strength, soul strength, mind logic, mind, soul, or body)
  • The chance to gain an affinity is 1/500 if you have no affinities in that skill, 1/1000 if you have one affinity, 1/1500 if you have two affinities, 1/2000 if you have 3 affinities and 1/2500 if you have 4 affinities.
  • If an affinity is successfully gained during the 15s window, the window will reset and no more will be able to be gained until the next window on that character.
  • This window will remain open and check every skill tick until an affinity is gained or the 15 seconds is up.
  • We will be monitoring these chances and making changes as necessary.
  • Stealing affinities upon killing a character in PvP has changed:
  • If the dead character only has one affinity total, they will not lose that affinity and the killer will not gain an affinity.

If the dead character has more than one affinity, then a random one is lost and may go to the killer. If the dead character has more affinities in that skill than the killer, then the killer will gain that affinity 100% of the time. Otherwise, the chance for the killer to gain the affinity is dependant on the difference between the number of affinities in that skill each player has (before the dead character loses the affinity). If the difference is 0, the chance is 50% for the killer to gain the affinity. Difference of 1 is 25%, difference of 2 is 12.5% and difference of 3 is 6.25%.

  • If an affinity is lost by the dead character and none gained by the killer, then the killer will receive a timed affinity in that skill that will last for a week.
