Bug reports / Nameless Villager
« Last post by cobaltnine on September 20, 2018, 11:27:26 PM »
Relatively busy Driik village and I found some nameless villagers.  I know there were some adjustments to make names not duplicate themselves in a town.  I don't know exactly how many people are in the town - it looks like at least 20.  I also found another woman with no name, distinct from the first.  It is a fortified town in Driik and there's a good amount of inventory as well.

Gameplay questions / Re: Dont understand how trapping fence works

I found an answer how to build fence.

It should be along water, animals often walk on river and lake banks. Open area is easy to check. Half or third of a tile in the place where tracks most visible is enough.

It is better to have small fences in different spots than large in few. If the animal is there, sooner or later it will step on the trap. You rise your chances if you trapping more animals, han putting all effort to catch one. I have never caught bear or deer. Most of the time it is moose. So I guess animals are inhabit certain areas.

I always walk with bull. It carries all tools and staff so I can lower weight and decrease skill penalty.

For a normal user, I believe it's counterproductive on Linux to install an antivirus (as shown in this case..). Just have a decent password and don't install stuff from dodgy websites, use the repositories instead :)

Clam antivirus is mostly used to scan Windows partitions for viruses, or in special cases. Luckily we have even less malware than MacOS around, and that's almost non-existent.

My suggestion: uninstall clam antivirus, uninstall urw, reboot and reinstall urw. Let me know the outcome, we'll take it from there.

There isn't much color variation in wood (at least not those that would have been available in Finland at the time), although there are some slight ones, so it would be a matter of hue rather than color, and would increase item count (not to mention having to deal with displaying mixing of wood in items such as walls, fences, and doors). Brightly colored trees are nice in games not rooted in realism.
Mining is not thought to have been practiced in the area at the time. The somewhat more advanced Vikings used bog iron, not mining from mines, so there's no reason to assume the iron age Finns used mines.

Well i would still like such house. All  houses look the same in game and this is boring. Well, logs, wooden stakes, boards... of different kind of trees could have different color so that entire house or parts, fences and other wooden items would have different colors. This would enable color creativity.
Pickaxe could be used to find iron in caves in order to be able to repair iron armors and create iron tools and weapons. Or to break big stones (of course not in villages with big stones walls).

Sorry, forgot to mention, uninstalled Antivirus but still could not reinstall URW. Thinking about starting over with a fresh wipe and reinstall of Ubuntu Linux.
