Yeah, we’re playing on an official server so I would think the admin theory would be off the table, but I guess we shouldn’t reject the possibility entirely. I asked other players in global chat if they had experienced similar issues, but apparently not so it’s not looking like a server wipe was the culprit either.
You make a good point in that building our base was probably the best time that we’ve had so far playing the game, but I guess the question that I’d have to ask is what purpose does that serve if someone can just exploit a bug to walk though the walls.
The sad part is that hacking probably wasn’t nearly as common as it used to be, but after being subjected to other players ruining the game experience over and over again using exploits, I guess I could see how someone would eventually give in and turn to the dark side, realizing that trying to play the game legitimately is a lost cause. I wouldn’t do it myself, because it defeats the entire purpose of the game, but considering the number of people that are flying around on my “official” server, it’s not so hard for me to understand why someone might eventually cave in and use the hacks just to make things even.

At the very least I think it would be cool if facepunch started a forum group to report hackers with a well defined set of rules in place for submission (requiring video capture of the offenders or something along those lines), but at the same time I can understand why they probably haven’t because it would most likely be immediately inundated with kids saying “player x just KoS’d me… he’s hacking!”. That pretty much comprises 25% of the global chat on our server (not to say that some of the complaints aren’t legit, but I would expect nearly half of them are just kids whining).
