I’m sure this has been mentioned before, but please consider adding a way to prolong the decay timer for a base.
With summer vacations approaching, 6 days is not nearly enough time on PvE and PvE-C servers, especially if you’re a solo player. I understand that 6 days is to prevent foundation spamming and the like. For that reason, I think you should implement some sort of craftable object that can be used to give some extra time to a base before it decays. The materials could be absolutely obscene (5k hardened brick + 5k shaped wood… or whatever, make it 10k), but as long as we know a vacation is coming up, we could farm the necessary materials to extend the decay by a week, two weeks, etc.
I think this would be a fair solution. I’m sure there would be some super dedicated griefers out there to take advantage of this, but if they’re that dedicated, nothing is stopping them from logging in everyday to refresh their bases anyway. I’ve seen far too many people on my server so far who’ve had to be away for a few days and they come back to an empty base (you can loot it after 5 days) and they quit for good. As for myself, I’ll have to go to the US soon from Europe for a week or two, and I know my ping will be too high to connect to the European server. So right now I’m facing the possibility that everything I’ve done so far will go poof given that there is absolutely no way to prolong the decay timer without logging in (or having clan mates that will log in in your absence).
Not very healthy for the game IMO.
