I’m not worried about my animals. I am talking about how somebody can leave a horse near your base, leave the server, and you can’t build there now. There is a horse literally in an area I intended to build on. I would be happy to wait a week for it to decay, but for some reason, animals and thralls don’t actually decay. A base decayed next to ours, 4 months ago, and the thralls are still there. Why? Why is there not a reasonable timer on them?
But then, what if somebody were to just place thralls near your base, and keep going past to reset decay timers?
So here is a suggestion. If a thrall is away from it’s base, it automatically returns at least once every 24 hours. Now, which base? You designate it with a flag. The thrall returns to that flag. You get one. It decays like a torch. Place it in the world, away from your base, it’s gone in an hour. If you have no flag, the thralls decay without the chance to reset the timer, until you place a flag. Once you place the flag, the thralls and animals return there within 24 hours.
Something needs to be done. This is beyond frustrating. I’m getting to the point that I am starting to think Conan would be better in single player. I would prefer to play with other people, but there are just too many things causing frustration, associated with servers settings, and other players.
