As I’ve mentioned in my last post, I’ve been very busy working on Ravenstone. Based on the idea of a small medieval-like village, I ended up constructing three buildings: a workshop, a smithy, and an inn. These three buildings are the hub at the center of the deed; they are usually the first things visitors notice and I am constantly running in and out of them as I do my daily tasks.
You see, buildings/housing are a key feature of Wurm. They have the best security on a PvE server: if you lock your doors and all the walls have been completed, no one can get in unless you allow them to. Players also love to build them because of how customized they can be. They can be just about any shape you like, even donut shaped now (the size restricted by your carpentry skill). A single tile of wall can be made of either wood or stone, and can be a solid wall, a window, a single door, a double door, or an archway. Each wall can also be dyed any colour you imagine if you choose to do so. Inner walls can be used to create rooms within a building. And with the addition of multistorey, several different floor and roof types, and parapets/fences…it’s amazing what you can build now. Just take a look at this forum post where players are showing off their new buildings.
