I hope its ok to link forum posts – sometimes they disappear before people even know they have been there. Well: http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/70253-wurm-deserves-an-award-for-its-environment/
ourstuff down below is fun and all but we could never in a million years do anything like this (and we know it).
I wish someone would just show this thread to the right people (the ones that gather nominations/organise awards). Wurm so does deserve an award and a lot of recognition for this work.
I defy anyone to show me another published, running game with a persistent working ambient environment that gets even close!
