Today is the day that Darkfall releases. A thread was created by a beta player showing the draw distance of players and creatures Darkfall. It was pretty good. Better than say Wow or Lotro:

The game looks pretty good as well. In general I wish them luck even though a lot of our players will disappear for a while to try Darkfall. Hopefully they will return of course:)
The reason that I comment on Darkfall is that it is the game that has most features common with Wurm Online. The feature lists sure are lookalikes.
Even though DF is competition I am glad that it gains attention because like Wurm it represents what I think online games should strive for when it comes to player freedom and interactivity.
Anyways, I just HAVE to show the Wurm Online view distance as a comparison. The screenshot is from the test server with a crazy amount of manually spawned boats. If you can't see people on the boats it is because I don't think there are any. There's a troll down left at least. If you are waiting to play Darkfall you might as well download and try Wurm in the meantime so you have something to compare with. It's free(!)
Note that in order to try the full loot PvP in Wurm you have to purchase premium time in the web shop and head off to the Wild server. It's only 16x16 kilometers of terraformable war lands:)
Here's the screenie:
