Awesome. We are actually getting ready to appoint one of our Citizens as an activity coordinator to start planning some fun server wide events and contests in town. Just trying to get our docks built and our shops open.
Looks really good! Are you sure there is an issue with sandstone though? According to the wurmpedia you are only supposed to get like 50 actions on sandstone and we get that on ours. - EDIT: I actually just looked again and it says 1 to 10,000 but I do remember reading some where that you only get 50.
The head developer for Wurm Online, Budda, explained there was an issue with certain WU maps so that they only got 50 hits. He posted a fix that WU administrators can use but I think it then messes up other existing ores and collapses all existing mines or mine entrances. Or something, I am not sure. Sklo posted in that thread several times, so they are aware of the issue here. On some servers they run a script to fix them, on others the GM will visit your mines and manually fix them.
Wurm Online servers get the correct 1- 10,000. Sklotopolis's other server, Liberty, gets the correct 1-10,000. They got theirs fixed already. This is how we know it is not "intended" for Novus to be limited to 50.
Even though I have several veins, I am not eager to deplete my veins if waiting will mean I get the normal amounts and not 50 (which is not enough to make even a tiny sandstone house) I did nibble at about 16 per vein to get enough for my sandstone sidewalks but I want the houses to use sandstone also. Sandstone is very pretty.
I think right now, the new map plus the HUGE influx of new people from the Humble Bundle deal, means Dominikk is seriously over stressed at the moment, so i completely understand that this is not an urgent issue at this time.
I have other things to work on before Sandstone buildings anyways.
