The stability system doesn’t work. It seems random at best. I have walls next to each other that are 99% Stable, then 52% Stable, and a door that’s 23% Stable… On a second floor with pillars. It makes no sense. If I add pillars under a roof the stability does not increase. If I destory the roof and rebuild it, it does… So the stability is not dynamic then… I built up and then removed the pillars and the roof was still 99% stable!! /sigh
It’s the reason for the exploitive raid towers.
Please just junk it… till it’s working at least…
Replace it with a simple height calculation? Twig structures are limited to 2-3 stories in height. Anything more and they collapse. Pillars could boost this to 4-6 maybe (so finally, a use for pillars that isn’t just exploitive raiding).
Wood could go up to 10-15? Stone could go 20-30. Armor up to 60? Etc.
Please Gary :zoid: You’d fix the raid tower glitching, you’d limit the buildings on servers so the collider limit wouldn’t be hit as soon… and stop weird ass building limitations. Like having stability of 0% next to something that’s 50% stable etc. I built out from my base and couldn’t complete a wall because it inexplicably decided it was too unstable. Yet the one next to it was fine?
…but I walk out of my front door and see huge ass raid dive towers over my neighbours. I’m not even talking about people trying to get to rock bases here btw… I am talking about bases on the ground, but it’s easier for thrm to just glitch their way in through the roof.
Survival (base wise) is tough enough in RUST (which is why many build in water or on a rock in the first place) but you shouldn’t have to worry about people parachuting in from the air too… It limits your build options even more. Why shouldn’t I be able to build an open top base as long as it’s high enough? It should be perfectly secure. But oh yeah, because raid towers and alt+f4 jumping… this isn’t a legitimate raid strategy it’s just exploiting a bad implimentation of stability. Screw people who think this is ok “because I want to raid lel”.
Allow ladders to be placed against rocks only. So people can’t complain they can’t reach them, but so it can’t circumvent legitimate defences.
