The Test Server is open for testing an upcoming intermediate patch. This coming patch is primarily intended to resolve issues with carts that have been a burden on the Guide team. In addition, recent minor changes and fixes will be patched.
Once this patch is out, we'll resume on the farming and cooking update.
Carts are marked ACTIVE and SAFE if the owner uses, opens or has the cart attached.
Carts on tribe land, not ACTIVE for INACTIVE days can be moved by the tribe leader.
Carts on tribe land, not ACTIVE for DESERTED days can be opened and contents taken by the tribe leader.
Carts are additionally marked SAFE if they are on the owner's tribe land.
Carts not on SAFE land and not ACTIVE for ABANDONED days become abandoned.
Carts can only be traded by the cart owner.
Owner can destroy carts.
Currently, for testing only, the time values are set as follows:
INACTIVE = 5 game days
DESERTED = 10 game days
ABANDONED = 10 game days
My proposed values are:
INACTIVE = 1 real day. This will allow tribe leaders to move carts in the way of projects.
DESERTED = 1-3 real months. This will allow tribe leaders to use goods in carts left by inactive tribe members.
ABANDONED = 1 real week. This gives the owner time to reclaim a cart left behind on public or other tribe land.
Please provide feedback on the these time limits and list any additional concerns regarding carts.
