Devblog: March

Hi Everyone

After months of long waiting, we finally have a release date for 1.3! Wurm Unlimited will be updating to version 1.3 on the 6th of March!

We’re keen to see this hit Wurm Unlimited, and we know you are too.

This of course catches Wurm Unlimited up to Wurm Online completely, with both versions being at 1.3, and means that a lot of things that have come to WO since the release of 1.3 (as  well as the bug fixes) so there’s a bit to share here too.

This update will bring the ability to equip unicorns with gear to improve speed! They will be able to wear gold and silver horse shoes, as well as the saddle and bridle. They won’t be able to wear any barding though! Unicorns require 26 body control to ride, and need to be tamed.

Extra wide mines

1 tile wide mine entrances are so 1054, and we’ve decided its time for expansion! You can now create 3 tile wide mine entrances, with a few guidelines:
Wide tunnel entrances

  • Tunnel entrances can be up to 3 tiles wide.
  • To widen a tunnel entrance, the tile you mine must only be connected to ONE open tunnel only.
  • Mine doors cannot be placed on tunnel entrances that are 2 or more tiles wide.



Need somewhere to store stuff? Tired of looking at coffins and carts and anything else you can jam your items into?
Well, with 1.3 we’re bringing new storage options! We’ve included the planter, amphora and barrel racks, but we also have the Large storage unit, able to take big objects like fishing poles, and the alchemists cupboard, which can hold up to 10 lots of 2kg liquids and greatly slows decay!

Cooking update guide

To get your head around just what comes with this update, we’ve of course got the cooking document, make sure you read it while waiting for 1.3 to land!

Forums downtime

We’ve recently migrated hosts for our wurmonline forums, which has unfortunately led to some extended downtime. We’re still working on it and hopefully it’s not much longer.

Wurm Unlimited website

As you can see we’ve switched our patch notes and blog from just Steam to be posted here, allowing us to share much more info with you all, and include full patch notes. Make sure to bookmark it and keep an eye out for news and updates.

Voting time!

We’ve taken you suggestions over the past week, and have stockpiled a massive list of recipes (some of you cook very weird things!) We’ve picked our top ten and will be opening voting in the next day. The top ten are:

  • Cthalpa’s Lemon Herb Battered Chicken
  • NESGamepro’s Chocolate Milk
  • SilentSmith’s Chicken Parmigiana
  • Robbycrusoe’s Poutine
  • Deadfire’s Fish n’ Chips
  • Army’s Mountain Gulasch
  • Dorian’s Cherries Jubilee
  • Til’s Take out
  • Thor’s Austrian Dream Schnitzel
  • Belrindor’s Maple Bacon Pancakes

The top three will get their names on the recipes ingame, with the remaining seven just having the generic name. We’ve had to modify a few of the recipes to fit in with what we currently have, but they all still fit firmly with the suggestions.

We’ll be opening the voting up on the forums when they come back up.

There were plenty of really good entries, and we may just see more come to WU as the time goes by!

Bug reports!

To streamline sensitive bug reports, we’ve introduced a new entry form for bug reporting. Based off how well the Wurm Unlimited 1.3 Alpha reporting went we’ll be offering this as a way to report bugs using an entry form to and include console and client logs and information.  We’ll still be using the steam forums as well, but if you wish to report a bug that could be a sensitive exploit, use this!

That’s it for this month, but it’s not all! We’re looking forward to the sixth and there’s plenty of work on the way. Until then though, keep on Wurming!

    @Retrograde – your bug tracker OS list is mysteriously missing Windows 8.1 64 bit…Seeing as I can run both Wurm Online and Wurm Unlimited on this OS – This has got to be an oversight.

    Mine carts need to be a thing. in fact more things with moving parts like windmills and waterwheels would be nice.

    look forward to seeing what else is to come 😀

    When are sunhats going to be fixed? It’s rediculous to put it on and end up with a bald character. More clothing options would be great. Silk, actually being able to utilize cotton for clothing, the whole thing needs to be fleshed out. I’m dying here without options and aesthetics.
