Decay system how is it so far?

where do i go to see these decay timers? I play on official servers only.

Use a repair hammer and look at everything.

Well i guess what i am asking is it working as intended?

No. It’s not. Hopefully soon.

Do you have some links to post saying its not working i cant seem to find any and with some people on this thread saying its working and some people saying its not more info would be much appreciated. (that are after launch I know pre lauch it was broken)





I’ve seen quite a few more than this, too.

The launch build was mostly the same as what a lot of us were playing on weeks before official release. The testlive build. It was broken then, so it’s still broken.

so the first 3 are from two weeks ago before lauch the guy talking about wheels going poof said they dont have decay on so thats not a decay bug and the other guy is talking about a wheel to so i am assuming its all the same problem. I cant find any posts saying the timers are not working.


Yeah I know there are more that talk about decay issues but sometimes people don’t use words to make them easily searchable.

Also, sometimes people have decay on and aren’t aware of it. In singleplayer/co-op, normal mode says decay is off by default, but it isn’t. So stuff starts disappearing for no apparent reason.

Here’s how it works, you spend hours or days harvesting and building, then while you’re asleep new players come and clog up the server population and either build crappy unimaginative box houses near you, or you cant get back into the server for days, and when you finally can get in, all your stuff has been demolished.

So, you go join a newer, less populated server, you spend hours or days harvesting and building, then while you’re asleep new players come and clog up the server population and either build crappy unimaginative box houses near you, or you cant get back into the server for days, and when you finally can get in, all your stuff has been demolished.

So you find a newer, even less populated server. you spend hours or days harvesting and building, then while you’re asleep new players come and clog up the server population and either build crappy unimaginative box houses near you, or you cant get back into the server for days, and when you finally can get in, all your stuff has been demolished.

So you just start playing solo until the new PVE conflict servers come out, and you hope upon hope that you dont spend hours or days harvesting and building, and while you’re asleep new players don’t come and clog up the server population and either build crappy unimaginative box houses near you, or that you can get back into the server and save your stuff from being demolished.

Yeah not being able to log in is a problem too. :slight_smile:

Ok thanks guys think i got all the info i need :slight_smile:

It WAS a Decay problem. I had set up my server prior to Launch Day, and when I wiped it for launch, it apparently reset the Decay settings. It defaulted to “on”, which wiped our freestanding wheels.

Does logging in reset decay timer? Or do you have to physically interact with each piece?

I believe you have to come within range of the structure you built for the decay time to reset for the connected structure.

From what I’ve read, it starts to decay after an hour of not being around it, but I still havent been able to find out the rate or how close you have to be for it to reset.

I Thinks its repar hammed distans so to say…

What is the range that the timer starts to refresh? I read it was 200m, but also read that 1 foundation square is 1m, and a 200 foundation block radius is far to big and is not the correct distance.
