Idea: Grace Period Triggered by the Tool Cabinet's Destruction
0 replies, posted
some people have already said they wanted a 'grace' period before decay, but I can't see how that would happen. It seems like people would just put the resources in for a single tick, and then take them out to reset the grace period.
Bases rely on the tool cabinet to keep
their hard work standing, and to keep potential assholes from greifing
the base beyond repair. With the added ability to store a large amounts
of resources inside the TC, raiders will seek it, to get the loot inside
it. Once they have the loot, there's nothing stopping them from putting
their own, and walling it in so that all your hard work decays away.
A grace period that is only triggered when the tool cabinet is destroyed.
Once the tool cabinet is destroyed,
the base will continue to emit the last known building privilege area
for a period of time(time scales up with base size). The building also
stops decaying for 2 hours. If authorized player is on during the grace
period. The UI will show them the time left on the grace period, and
that the TC has been destroyed. They will be able to place a new TC
inside the building privilege zone, which ends the grace period and
resumes decay. If no new TC is placed and two hours pass, the base would
begin to decay as usual. Then once the Grace period's time has fully
expired, the base's building privilege would stop being emitted.
Players might destroy the TC to abuse the grace period.
But since the TC takes time to destroy, only
halts decay for 2 hours and placing a new one down ends the Grace
period. it wouldn't be worth the effort.
Notable side effect
The Grace Period could be used to relocate the
Tool Cabinet safely, Great for building compounds.
