Despawn rates need to be adjusted!

Recommended Posts

Hi Devs, 

I've been playing this game since launch. There's a few despawn rates that REALLY need to be adjusted. Here they are:

1) Lighthouses despawn after 5 days?! (I had a busy week, and I came back to no lighthouse - no fun).
2) Billboard signs - THESE should only be 5 days before despawning, not the current 30+ days. I keep having people place signs on my property that never go away!
3) Foundations with ONLY a bed, fireplace, or a single pillar. If the foundation can be deleted, the rest should be too!
4) Rafts - I've STILL got rafts at my base from the INITIAL server online after the wipe, and they don't despawn, yet our larger ships will. That's just dumb.
5) Sloops from freeports - Same issue as the rafts, and they're cheap, so they can be spammed!
6) Chests on the ground by themselves - should be 10 days like everything else.


Please fix these despawn rates!

You prefer the multi-month abandoned rafts? They collect like lice in islands adjacent to Freeports. Some of those islands look like beaches for the homeless. 10 days would be reasonable.

These make a lot of sense on owned islands where the owners are marking important locations for building, resources, and shops, but those aren't even eligible for decay. 95% of these I see outside of that usage are in little clusters for animal traps that nobody ever cleans up. I'd say 10 days would be reasonable.

The developers did this on purpose apparently, and are quite proud of it. No idea why, I agree with you, but don't expect them to see it your way.

There are so many Pros And cons for those structure Timers if you Start to think of it. Billboards are ugly and are used too much for taming. 90% of all lawless Islands Are Filled with traps And billboards And those one way ships.
