Kappinski posted a topic in General DiscussionPeople are still worried about their ships so here is an idea. What we need: - 1x claimed island - 2x new structures - 1x ship The claimed island could be the island of any company with a good amount of gold in their bank (or flag?) They will build a new structure, which also solves the need for a requested feature. The Dock I imagine docks like they are done at DarksideRP they have a mod for that but thats about the cosmetic part So you have a dock structure that you can build and snap onto each other so we don't have to use wood structures. The Bollard This snaps to a dock and you can attach a ship to it. They could look fancy. You can set a gold price per hour that a ship has to pay to stay attached to this structure. As long as a ship is attached to a bollard it is invincible no matter what phase the island is in. The gold is payed from the ships resource box. And the gold doesn't vanish into nowhere. The gold goes directly into the bank of the land owner. The ship could be any ship. If it is a ship of the same company as the bollard it costs nothing. Or you can make some settings in your claim flag what enemies, allies and company members have to pay. But why? This is an easy way to make gold. Every single player wants to have its ship protected. As solo player or just a group of new players you could anchor in the harbor of another company. The ships would be invincible as long as they have gold. This would give players who build their harbor a meaningful decision about how to build it. You can protect it with automated NPC cannons but then nobody that isn't part of your alliance can anchor there. So less gold for you. Or you make it open to everyone entirely and provide a safe option for traders and player shops. This would also lead to more gold on ships because they don't have to pay only the crew. And that could lead to more piracy in open waters. If you know a famous port where many players park their ships you could patrol this area. The big advantage I see here is that if that works and players open their ports to others. You don't need a base on your own to protect your stuff. You could just play with your ship as a base. Other thoughts The question is whether the bollard and the dock it is attached to becomes invincible as well or not. Because you could destroy it. Does the effect for the ship still stay as it was? Just details
Hi Atlas Dev. I have some suggestion for claiming system. 1. Spamming flag everywhere Trouble: for new comer will have hard time to claim territory because all island fully claimed. suggestion: Once a company created. Owner will receive 1 or 2 claim flag. If you want more claim flag. you need to go freeport to buy another claim flag with gold. 2. Flag protection Trouble: Some people lost they claim when they gone offline. Suggestion: Player need use gold to buy protection via flag for couple hours to prevent they territory got claim. 3. Inactive territory Trouble: (PVE Server) I found an inactive territory but sadly i cannot take over they territory because there is 1 sleeping player that has 4hp n never die. Suggestion: i - if player inactive for long time like 1 week real time. New player can kill the inactive player. ii - Sleeping player can die cause of thirst / hungry iii - (addition from no.2 suggestion) Other player can stole territory when flag protection is expired. can only be contested when territory owner online in the area. Sleeping player cannot contest the claim.
I think it'd be an interesting mechanic for claims to have certain upkeep costs (resources or currency). Maybe having a management screen to see the values of each claim. This is more of a city-builder way of handling it (think most large map RTS games), but it might help balance a lot of the issues with mass claiming. I've heard mentions that it should be limited per-user, but the company's numbers would make more sense to dictate the claim count (i.e., member, resource, or currency count). Please, let me know if I'm missing something regarding the claim requirements in the game. This is just feedback based on limited experience and listening to what others have to say. P.S., this could also open doors for automation (earning specific materials with a timer provided a structure or NPC is assigned to it).
