Not sure if this is by design or not. If it is, it is beyond stupid.
I placed a ship resources box and placed 982 gold in it. I didn't like the placement so I picked it up before the timer expired. I had thought the gold would be in a bag on the floor where I picked the box up. It was not. So, I had hoped it was like a water barrel and would be inside the box when I put it down again. It was not. The gold is just gone. I do not belong to a large company. We do not own an island. We play lawless. 982 gold represented a lot of farming for me. This is a broken mechanic and needs to be hotfixed. I will chalk my loss up to a learning experience, but it should not ever happen. There was in no way anywhere that I can find where this has ever been broadcasted as an issue. So, here it is. DO NOT EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PICK UP A SHIP RESOURCES BOX WITH GOLD STILL IN IT!!
