Suggestions / wishing for socks and undergarments

*Praying to the URW Old Man w/ grey hat*

Oh Great Spirit, my feet and I come to you asking for but a few socks and undergarments to be found in shops scattered throughout the land, be they linen or wool. Forgive me for not acquiring the one pair of footrags I saw when first I stepped into the wanderer's life.


Bug reports / not installing on Ubuntu
« on: September 17, 2018, 09:18:24 PM »
Installed Ubuntu 18.04 on a borrowed Lenovo 4446-25U. Installed urw_3.51_amd64.deb using Software Install & played for over an hour. Installed Clam TK Antivirus. URW disappeared. Could not reinstall. The URW3-Linux folder is still there with many files. Downloaded urw_3.51_amd64.deb, still could not reinstall.

What happened and how do I fix it?

Suggestions / Wild boars can be very aggressive

Wild boars are real life monsters of legend. They are also very smart. They usually run first, hide, backtrack, conceal their tracks, have exceptional sense of smell, good hearing and poor eyesight. Herds are female, single boars are male, usually. During rutting season (November to January), males develop subcutaneous armor. They hunt small prey, eat almost everything, even plants poisonous to us.

A male, in rutting season, might attack without provocation. Females in a herd might defend their young if I stumbled into their midst.

Suggestions / Markers on zoomed-in map

I dropped all my items to hunt and afterwards, could not find where I dropped everything. Especially likely in wooded areas.

If I am not in a rush, I drop my items in an open area or I chop down trees around where I want to leave my things but, when the encounter finds me and pulls me into the zoomed in map, and it is wooded or crosses several areas, I have to rely on luck to find my things. Would that it were no so.

Another possibility; my footprints would be visible and would have a different appearance than all other footprints. Then, I could "retrace my steps" (a commonly heard phrase).

General Discussion / weight of dried fish vs dried meat
« on: July 21, 2018, 02:38:53 PM »
Why does dried salmon weigh more than dried bear? The whole salmon is dried and the bear meat is a chunk or slice of meat. BUT, they are similarly nutritious and less weight of bear is more filling than salmon. Not that it matters in URW gameplay but, there might be a RW reason behind this strange anomaly. Because, after all, URW is a caricature of RW.

Suggestions / selling animals back in town

I had too many dogs. They were eating more food than I could manage to supply. I felt bad about my virtual  dogs starving and I felt terrible about taking one of them out into the woods to politely ask for a set of dog fur mittens for some bear ritual I remember seeing.

Suggestions / Linseed, woolens, metal

I am shocked at how useful linseed plants are (linen cloth, linseed oil wood preservative and cloth water proofing, flax seed food). I really did not know flax, linen and boiled linseed oil all come from the same plant. Hemp has a little competition.

I search the UR world over for quality woolens. I would love caring for a herd of sheep (eating my turnips and getting eaten by lynx and bears despite my best efforts) so I could collect their wool and make my own MasterWork woolens.

Now, metal crafting is a monstrous can of worms in URW, mining, smelting, alloys, smithing and imbuing with  ritual blessings and powers, that is a lot of programming work. But, I would like a more reliable source of my most coveted weapons and armor.

Or, OMG! A spell to find where that one masterwork woodman's axe is in the world?! LOL, not to mention where I saw silver jewelry and an anthill to request an audience with The Great Man of The Forest.
