Hello Exiles! I am wondering about the recent patch note which states:
- Fixed a case where some placeables could be interacted with if you were not the owner and should not be able to.
Prior to this change, the mechanics of boxes, chests, and vaults meant that…
- If not in a clan, any player can access an unlocked box, but only the player who owns the box can access it if the box is locked.
- If in a clan, any player in the clan can access any clan-owned box regardless whether locked or not, while any player could access an unlocked box.
The change mentioned above causes many placeable containers to display a message that “You do not own this.” I am not currently in a clan, and I have found that I can no longer open other players’ unlocked boxes. As a result of this, my friends and I are considering forming a clan. (We didn’t before because clan ownership of containers created communication problems, as it was hard for all of us to keep track what is shared property and what is personal.)
So now… does locking a box when a member of a clan make it so only you can access that box? Or can clan members still access all clan-owned boxes no matter locked or not?
