My security advisor has the Valve Corp and its affiliates on a restricted list he updates for me every month or so. It would be very unlikely for me to go against his advice. Hopefully the game will continue to be available outside of steam for a long time even if updates are delayed.

<t>Sami, any thought to having focused donations toward specific features? Perhaps a list of future features with a dollar value based on the estimated time to implement. It probably depends on your style of design. I know some programmers like to jump around on a project whenever they get inspired....

<t>My supervisor is an amateur competitive archer. I'm not sure if he shoots any primitive style bows but with his competition gear he can group his arrows inside a 10cm circle at 40 meters all day. I'll see if he can get his hands on a simple primitive bow and do some distance samples with stationa...

Yep, I see the issue with the raft is addressed in the latest dev news. Not too worried about the reset. I have gotten better at running through the whole game course in a few game days if I get set up correctly.

I hope public beta is soon. I have a long weekend coming up. After working 30 days straight it would be great to sit down to some new UrW features. ;)

On another note: The auto spell detect in the forums thinks UrW is a misspelled word, blasphemy!

Hmm do I sense a fundraising possibility? Custom made swag from the developer himself? It could fetch some serious &#036;&#036;&#036; for rabid UrW fans.

The basic version of the game has a stone-axe recipe. "Shift+M" to bring up the Handcrafting Menus. Select Weapons. Stone-axe is at the top.

To make a stone-axe you will need Slender Trunk, Stone, Rope (or cord), and a Knife.

<t>Fantastic!<br/> <br/> I was also thinking about for those with low tracking but good hearing. How about a command that "Detects direction of the noise"? When you issue a command it does an ability check against your hearing level and points your character in the direction of the noise with the ac...
