Increased Decay Timer on Official Servers

Good news everyone:

We’re going to be increasing the standard decay timer on our official servers! Currently it will take your settlement 6 days to reach a state of abandonment. At this stage anyone can walk up to it, hit a button and demolish your abandoned building. The structure will demolish itself automatically if you wait an additional day. After 7 days in total it will be gone.

We’re bumping this up to 8 days, with 7 days until abandonment and then a final, 8th day for automatic demolition. This gives you a little more time to refresh your settlements.

This change will go in effect as servers restart at 5am local server time today, but you need to log in and refresh your buildings for the extra time to be added. It won’t happen automatically just because we change the settings.
