I’d like to make a suggestion for community life in the game.
Currently we have clans. Everything is owned by the clan and granting every player equal access to everything. This can be an issue with adding new members later on.
What I think would be nice is to be able to become your Friend.
By becoming Friends, my thralls would not attack you, you can open my unlocked chests and use my workstations. If we also had lockable doors, then you would also be able to open my unlocked doors.
Your buildings remain yours, our resources do not get murged into a clan.
This option would be great for those casual encounters with solo/duo players who you want to help out or team up with in your area.
