  2. I think I’ll be buying WURM Unlimited, but at some as yet unknown date in the “near” future. I’ll likely then explore the world of servers, start a server or tinker in solo. I’m still very curious about having a small server with skilling and building significantly spead-up. Not too mention maybe create a “pre-built” Island with some very few, and very sparse, but flavor-adding things like a castle — something to make it unique and perhaps offer players something.

    I’m sure you’re aware, I’ve been all about Indie — working on my indie website and now tinkering with RPG Maker MV.

    I have to echo your thoughts on GW2 a little. In one small way, it’s become my Vanguard — a game I tell people is great and can be fun, but have I been playing it anytime in the last many months? Nope. (Of course it’s not Vanguard — nothing is Vanguard. Vanguard will forever be mourned and missed).

    I am still on this kooky expedition to come up with just the right set of tools that can all work together to let me feel like I am playing an online game, when in fact I might only be playing and offline, single-player indie game.

    Believe it or not: I still get nostalgic and long to try Runes of Magic again, but I can’t — the current state of the official server is still too shoddily coded for me to even run the game, and the only cough-private-cough server I found kind of scratched that itch, but it turns out if you give players the ability to manage a game… they will put a company to shame with how badly they scrape people for “micro-transactions”, and how they manage it — ya know, for all the complaining we could find on game forums. The private server also had XP cranked up so high, you kill a level 1 mushroom and become level 10 — yeah it’s that bad. So it manages to at least let me visit the game I played and loved for many years, but that too fell away rather quickly.

    Take it a day at a time, and all that good advice banter. 😀
