Retrograde here with the first of our monthly Wurm Unlimited Devblogs! Giving you insight into our current projects, as well as reviewing what’s happened over the past month. Being the first of these there’s a bit to cover, so stick with us.
New social media!
As many of you might know, we used our Wurm Online social media pages for Wurm Unlimited news and info, but that’s no longer the case. We now have official Facebook and Twitter pages for Wurm Unlimited, where we can keep you all up to date with the latest happenings in Wurm Unlimited as well as showcase events and of course, give away free Steam keys from time to time!
June saw the addition of cave dwellings, and powerful rift creatures from Jackal added to the list of features in Wurm Unlimited, and it’s been incredible seeing what people have designed with their underground homes, from small workshops, to castles under mountains!
New client rendering engine
Testing continues for the new client rendering engine, currently available on Wurm Online and the test server. With improved performance, lighting, shadows and shading, your world will never be the same again. We’ll be pushing a beta version to run testing with the client in Wurm Unlimited closer to its release.
A new domain system is on its way, currently live on most Wurm Online servers, this system allows crossing of domains from underground, as well as improves portability of altars, allowing all altar types to be pushed and pulled!
Currently on the Wurm Online test server are adjustments to armour types, healing spells, and some boat travel. The current changes are still in the testing phase, and will continue to change until we’re happy with how they work, full changes will be listed with a beta update or next months devblog.
New Cloth Armour Types
We also have some cloth armour types coming, allowing better customisation and showing off your style! The new clothing additions are green tunic, green cloth sleeves, green cloth pants. Red tunic, red cloth sleeves, patchwork pants. Black belted vest and black cloth pants.
Events, show off your server!
Admins, hosting an event and want to show off? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share it on social media! Simply send us details of your server, what’s going on and we’ll do our bit to spread the word.
That’s it for this month! I’ll be back in August to show off what else is coming in Wurm, but until then, don’t forget to follow us on social media and keep up with all the news!
