As the title suggests the building claim should only extend to actual building structures, not chests, not camp fires, not torches, not a chair not a thrall, I believe if I want to set up a small camp fire and a chair to rest until morning or a small chest to squirl away stuff in a hidden location it shouldn’t claim land. (Would improve RP aesthetics and enjoyment plus survival) However I believe the actual structures used to build are fine and should also be adjusted to be adjusted the actual building structure claim radius should be reduced by 10-15% in the claim radius.
I don’t know the number for the base radius this is my experience with trying to build as the radius is a small amount too large right now it’s obviously fine but a small reduction would help and assist with people making MASSIVE STRUCTURES an with such a structure they seem to claim a huge portion of the land just by making a long line this should provide balance I believe the 15% would suffice.
I also believe the decay duration should also be adjusted based off the tier of materials used such as sandstone should not last for 300+ hours with a MASSIVE structure, but I believe 80 hours based on the amount of blocks used would suffice for a big building structure vs 300+ hours made of sandstone I can’t even being to think what would happen if you adjusted the modifier to the maximum setting obviously the highest it should be should never exceed 300 with out the modifier. I also find that the increments based on the structure being big should be 80h with sandstone with the next T2 materials should be 160, T3 add another 80h obviously increments of 80 provided they reach a building side requirement it would also mean that people that want to play on official servers have to actually play not just make a massive structure and leave for 2 months and not have it decay at all, make 1 visit and then leave again, forcing the fact that have to actually play to maintain a land claim. Freeing up a lot of land.
I would love to hear others suggestions on this subject.
