I have even started a Topic on Steam and will also link this Tread on this site also on Steam, so it would be great a Mod or Admin could link this here to, you will find it in the discussions with the Title: [SUGGESTION] Thall rework needed! or (last part of the link) 1651043958643403200/?tscn=1559450484 Thanks!
One of the main problems this game actually haves is that really dumb system around the Thralls. You have no effective way to micromanage them anyways. The next point is that there is always a bunch of T1 & T2 Thralls & Animals that people no longer need, so these are placed somewhere on the server as garbage.
Options and ways to solve those problems in my opinion …
Following options and so on:
· Follow / Unfollw. (Allways InGame)
· Defend and hold the actual position. (For Structures, Thralls and ner by Allied players )
· Stop! (Instantly stop all actions even attacking!)
Even missing is a patrol System to guard your Buildings:
You can add a craftable Item like a Simple waypoint Flag. (Some Rocks a Stick or Bones some Hide, something like this.) After placing those you can add a limited number of Thralls which will patrol between those points. (About a maximum of 3 will be ok for the beginning)
The next point is to stop ppl. placing their unused Thralls & Animals all over the map… So there is a decay needed! If Thralls & Animals don’t get any food for more than 24 hours they have to die, this will keep any server clean and will reduce delay/lags! At this point, the interval for the good of the Thralls must be buffed, so that it is consumed slower otherwise ppl. will start crying about that fact because they have to spend more than 15 minutes with a cleaver to harvest some meat for some days.
On Steam the User: “snoclown” haves the Suggestion to limit how many Thralls a player could have. In my opinion, this is even a good idea because the Purges are not that hard that ppl. have to flood an area with more than 30 Thralls and Animals. (You should exclude Thralls for any workstations here.)
This Tread will be updated with suggestions of other ppl. on Steam!
