I love updates in Wurm Unlimited and I wasn’t expecting another for a while because we just had the enormous cooking update not too long ago – but then the developers went and announced that we’ll be getting some new wall types. Along with those wall types come new paving options, and I think I even saw some new fence options (all of them matching the wall options).
Excited? You bet I am.
They’re also updating hell horse models to have a few new colours, and while most of these updates are simply graphic changes I’m still excited. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to re-do any of my houses (I tend to like the stone / timber look) I am pretty sure I’ll be updating my roads.
Tomorrow is my birthday, and then this weekend is Easter, so I doubt I’ll be on too much (or if I am I’ll be AFK) but I still have some smaller goals in mind. I reached 70 in hot food cooking and ropemaking, bringing my total title count to 62. Today I’d like to get some pottery under my belt (I’ve never raised it) and make a few more coal piles. I transformed 4 peat tiles for Tomservo and now I’m creating 4 for Wreck, except the combines were frowned upon by the RNG gods of Wurm and it took a lot more than I was expecting, so I ran out of coal. Go figure. Sometimes it seems like even if you have high skills RNG can still mess you up.
Take for example my Vynora priest casts. I have really good channeling, wear cloth for the 30% cast bonus, have a deed bonus of 25, and have a 50ql gold altar – when I cast on other peoples things I get pretty good casts. Yesterday I landed my first 100 circle of cunning – on a tool created for someone else. When it came to casting on my own tools I managed to land a 10. The RNG of some skills is just too much.
Are you excited about the new wall types? Going to take down any buildings and redo them just because you want to try them out? Let me know in comments, and as always, happy gaming. No matter where you find yourself.

Happy Birthday :-) I was very excited to hear about the new wall types! Hopefully they wont take as long to come to WU as the cooking update did! Because I recently had to start over on a new server it’s great timing for me as I only have 2 buildings done so far so I’ll have plenty of opportunity to play with all the new options :-)
Happy Birthday and Happy Easter!
Happy bday! I’m excited about the new house textures too. I can’t decide which ones I like best but I’m leaning towards the red brick. We have an old civil war fort nearby that I’ve visited and the red brick used there looks really similar so that gives me some ideas.
