Terrain Reversion is running on the Test Server at an accelerated pace.
Terrain reverts to its original height over time on public land.
Water on public land rapidly reverts to its original level.
Terrain on tribe land plus a buffer around the tribe does not revert. Currently the buffer is 10 meters.
Terrain reversion on public land is blocked by buildings including ghost buildings.
Small objects such as bins and bundles on public land move with reverting terrain.
Long and short logs decay and are removed.
Currently terrain reversion should have affected most public land.
In addition I have cleaned up the database to remove old objects that apparently should have deleted but were still in the database.
Note: Terrain reversion affects terrain and water heights only. Terrain surfaces are not going to revert with this current implementation.
- Buffer zone adjustable and set at the tribe totem allowing the buffer to be set between 0 and 10 meters.
- Logs on road surfaces do not decay.
- Stumps decay and are removed.
I require feedback on:
- Are bundles and bins properly moving with the changed terrain?
- Are logs completely gone from public land?
- Are buildings properly blocking reversion?
- Are there any problems with water reversion?
- Are there any problematic areas with reverting terrain?
- There are locations where players moved a totem around to terraform outside of their tribe boundary. These changes will revert to the original state. Is this a big issue?
- There are locations where players lined roads with logs. I could not have logs on 'road' surface decay. This, however may lead to a lot of logs not decaying because many abandoned tribes are entirely paved with 'road' surface. I would appreciate player thoughts on what is best here.
- Are there any other concerns that I am overlooking?
Cleanup - Important!
- Are your tribes and contents of bins and inventories normal? (The data on the Test Server is from Sunday June 8)
If you encounter any locations with problems, please post the zone number and coordinates.
