Now that we are done with the debate regarding ladders and walls (hopefully), I think that the next step would be to change how sleeping bags work.
Currently, you can place 7 or 8 sleeping bags until they don’t show up anymore on you the respawn screen. If you place more than that, you’ll have to delete some for the others to show up.
What does this mean? It means that a group of raiders can place like 10+ sleeping bags next to a base, and they don’t worry much about dying. The owner(s) of the base that is being raided will have little advantage in killing the raiders. If a raider gets killed, he’ll respawn immediately in another sleeping bag and loot his stuff.
Naked guys will also think twice before attempting to attack other naked guys.
**Here are some ideas on making sleeping bags implemented in a better way, and please share your thoughts with me:
1- Make sleeping bags much more expensive and increase their health. Say you need 5 pickaxes to destroy a sleeping bag.
2- Limit the number of sleeping bags than can be placed by a player. Or make it limited by regions. Example, you can have 3 sleeping bags in each part of the map?
3- Double the cool down duration before someone can respawn in the same sleeping bag (make it 10 minutes). Now people will think twice before taking any reckless decisions, and it will be rewarding to kill a person raiding your base, taking into account the limited sleeping bags that he can spawn next to your base!
4- Add a building blocked area inside and around rad towns.
5- Reduce the number of cloth plants around the desert area. Last time I played on Singapore server, I was gathering cloth like crazy, and I had around 1000 cloth in a matter of minutes. Spamming sleeping bags couldn’t get easier.
6- Add a building blocked area around a sleeping bag (this will only affect the placement of sleeping bags). If you place a sleeping bag somewhere, you can only place another one 20 to 30 blocks away. However if a player is inside his base or has building privilege, he the blocked area between sleeping bags can be much smaller.
