Things in Wurm Online are getting a whole lot prettier soon. The devs have posted a variety of looks at the sandbox’s graphical overhaul. The update to the visuals mostly focuses on volumetric lighting, which is already improving the game’s atmosphere as well as bringing some new beauty to the day and night skies of the title.
There’s also been an update to long-distance Z-fighting, which is what causes textures on the same level to flicker due to the client not knowing how to display them correctly. The post offers an animated before and after look at what these improved Z-fighters do, but in summary it stops distant water surfaces from fluttering like a flag in a hurricane.
We’ve put together a gallery of Wurm Online’s visual updates below to help players let the sunshine in.
