    So having a trawl of the workshop and looking at some cool mods, was looking to gauge opinion of both devs/admins and community. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1648830674 One Pay Crew - Unlocks a tavern where u can recruit crew 100 gold & 2 grog but no Maintenance. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1646246826 Indiaman Ship - NEW SHIP that is all. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1628611721 Automated Atlas - Rip off of the Ark AA but would be a great addition https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1634787296&searchtext= Advanced Structures - AUTO OPEN AND CLOSE DOOR.... life begins here lol Just a starter for a discussion 🙂

    I just cant understand what the big deal is on a 6 times server. You can tame a level 40 bear easily, take it out on treasure hunts or get it to kill alphas for a day and its level 80 and strong. So tames are not really that big a deal, you could even donate to the server and get a set of tames for pretty cheap if you really wanted. Not only is it 6 times easier to get everything here but there are constantly new servers opening up and plenty of space for new peeps to get the head start they need so they can make a strong base and have some sort of deterrent against opportunistic raiders. If a decent size group come prepared, even if you are ONLINE you are still going to lose everything if thats what they want to do. Your only option ORP or not is to build a well fortified base guarded by npcs.... If you are not doing this and doing other things before this then you are not playing the game properly and hence cannot really complain about people fucking you over. Whats it going to be next "they raided me when I was on my own as 5 and I lost everything, its not fair". Come on. It sucks to lose your stuff but its part of the game. Come back stronger next time or find people to ally with or to join if you cant make it as you are. Learn why they were able to get in to your base and at least cover that hole. If admin remove barrels honestly imo there is no excuse for not fortifying your base properly any more and personally I think simple nerts to items or buffs to walls etc. is the way to go as a compromise between this and official. I am sorry to say it but without the option to offline raid the threat and excitement is dulled and things can just get boring.

    Today I got the message that deleting peoples bases is a life ban. Yet we can still steal their land and use their base.... This doesn't make any sense and in reality as harsh as it is any sort of restriction on raiding does not work for a multitude of reasons. TL:DR: If I want to take your base. I will find a way to take it from you. At the very least I can make it so you need to set up another base somewhere else to get what you will need to take your original base back. Its basically a pointless rule and the people who want it will always lose their shit as long as their is PvP involved.. It just doesn't make any sense in this game to try and protect peoples bases and even less sense on this server in particular as we have 6x XP and 4x farming. This means I can level my bear to 100 in one session and I can build a mega base as a solo player in a couple of days. What is there to be that sore about when you get wiped? Just learn something from it and try again. One point I want to make is about the word 'bullying' being used. Deleting someones base is not always bullying, this is a PvP game and a lot of the time its about self preservation. I am a solo player and a group of four people come to my server and settle on the main island near me. They raid someone elses base etc., or like they did to me today they try and wall off the iron deposits from the entire server. Why am I going to let them do this? So they get big enough to raid me and kill all my tames? And again sure I can abide by your rules and kill them all destroy all their beds, take the land and then leave the base standing after emptying it. But you think I am going to let them come back and settle? I patrol that island every day. I know whose on it and whose not. the day they are back I will raid them again. This is PvP I am protecting my hard work. And this annoys me a lot. I am playing the game and working really hard to try and make it so its incredibly difficult to offline raid me. I see a lot of ship yards with galleons and brigs and tons of ships, and then like a box in the middle of the island with nothing... no defences, no tames patrolling, no outer walls, no puckles no swivels , no nothing.... Like come on, at least try and make ur base hard to raid before complaining about offline raiding. At least before you are building ships you should be trying to make something secure. If you are not then you can't genuinely complain as you are not really trying or even thinking about it. I really like you guys on the discord and all the hard work you put in but I think you are underestimating the number of people who will not like this rule and will not bother with the server because of it. If I had known from when I joined that I cant delete bases that threaten me I wouldn't have bothered settling here in all honesty. You call it bullying, but its honestly complete common sense for someone like me playing on my own. Why am I going to let people come here and overtake me? At least not on my island I am not. I have put a lot into my fortress and donated so I will stick with it whilst I am having fun but honestly if people come here and are just allowed to overtake me because they might cry if I send them back to freeport then theres nothing here for me long term and I can promise you a lot of people will feel this way. And again it comes back to the point that its pointless anyway as I or anyone who is trying and using their brain will find a way to stop you from taking your base back if they dont want you to have it back. So in reality it achieves nothing and is just lip service to people who are going to cry anyway eve when they are raided legitimately and their base is left intact. The worst thing for me about it is this is x4!!! Its EASY to rebuild here... like what is the issue here? If you put a ton of time into a base it should have layers of walls, turrets, towers and patrolling defensive tames... People won't just be able to raid that and delete you easily. Anyway just my thoughts as this doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Or maybe if that someone doesnt want to pvp, they should play on a pve server ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Removing explosive barrels will remove almost all of the raiding/ base defending problems. ORP seems really anti pvp.

    Can someone explain why they think this is a good idea? Can't see any benefit at all. It would more than likely make the servers dead during the week.

    I thought I heard Fad saying he may even consider removing them. Either way I think this nerf could be a good compromise at least at first. No need to goo all in ORP if thats what a lot of people would like. Can just maybe try smaller indirect changes to help people survive off line initially and see how it goes.

    I have over 2k hours logged into Ark and have admin'd Ark servers that were well populated and active. ORP kills pvp servers, as raiders who raid or harass you will just combat log making them invulnerable to retaliation.

    ORP can be abused to shit, i can buy atlas on a 2nd steam account, put my entire base on that toons company, and keep him offline and only log in with him every couple of days, then put pin codes on everything so my main company can still use the base. Server is x6, with rules against more then 50% dmg done to a base. No point in ORP other then to abuse the shit out of it. Also gold is ez to make even solo, so no excuses to not have ur base defended by npcs.

    I understand this is a PVPVE sever, but getting raided with no way to defend yourself, especially large vs small companies is rough. Granted it's part of the game, to get raided and rebuild but it's frustrating. I think this is the number one reason people are looking into custom servers like this. They are tired of getting wiped etc. PVP can be fun, and we can have some epic ship battles etc, but building a galley and spending hours/days on it to log in and find it sunk, same with your base is causing lots to quit in my opinion.

    Today I got the message that deleting peoples bases is a life ban. Yet we can still steal their land and use their base.... This doesn't make any sense and in reality as harsh as it is any sort of restriction on raiding does not work for a multitude of reasons. Bold and sweeping statement as well as an opinion not a fact. If rules are set in place and a criteria set that can be viewed and judged upon, then it simply becomes a case of ensuring consistency of the Judges. It just doesn't make any sense in this game to try and protect peoples bases and even less sense on this server in particular as we have 6x XP and 4x farming. Why ? The reason most of us are here is because of the zerg tactics of the Chinese on the official PvP servers where you work you arse of to build something then poof next day the Red Flag with Gold stars is flying about it and 2 weeks worth of work is now being used as a staging post for the 200 strong clan for the next occupation. I think it will be difficult to set up a set of guidelines to follow but not impossible. The additional farming and XP whilst is excellent and helps still means you have to put in a few hours to get a base which is defensible. One point I want to make is about the word 'bullying' being used. Deleting someone's base is not always bullying, this is a PvP game and a lot of the time its about self preservation. WI thing the point the admin was trying to make was an isolated incident rather than a generic remark however Bullying, Griefing being a dick...all results in the same end result. Deleting someone base when its against the pre laid down rules and then doing in 4 mornings on the trot can be seen as bullying. Like come on, at least try and make your base hard to raid before complaining about offline raiding. There is not a base in this game you cannot raid with the correct weapons and the argument is not about raiding Vs Defence its about Raiding Vs Breaking the excessive destruction rule. I really like you guys on the discord and all the hard work you put in but I think you are underestimating the number of people who will not like this rule and will not bother with the server because of it. And his is the crux of it. Trying to find the balancing act between allowing PvP to happen but at the same time making the game balanced for all. I think you are underestimating the number of people who do want that balance and will flock to the server if it is done right. If I had known from when I joined that I cant delete bases that threaten me I wouldn't have bothered settling here in all honesty. You call it bullying, but its honestly complete common sense for someone like me playing on my own. So go find another server with x6 XP and Harvesting and no rules. I'm sure it will only take you a couple of hours to get a mega base and bear to 100. Again the bullying remark I'm sure was pretty specific - So in reality it achieves nothing and is just lip service to people who are going to cry anyway eve when they are raided legitimately and their base is left intact.See my comments about Devs doing Dev stuff. The worst thing for me about it is this is x4!!! Its EASY to rebuild here... like what is the issue here? If you put a ton of time into a base it should have layers of walls, turrets, towers and patrolling defensive tames... People won't just be able to raid that and delete you easily. Let me come and test your base defences and we will see how long it takes to get in! Not a threat, although it sounded like it but and honest appraisal. I bet you 10000 gold we break in to any room within an hour. In conclusion - The devs are trying to make a server which is both friendly, exciting and gives the most amount to the biggest community base. Some things are gonna work some arn't. However we need to help refine these things and control our natural urges to kill everything LOL aswell as work together in these early days to make this a great community. D>

    Whats the point of having rules if you are not going to enforce them? Kraken Company started taking some of our flags last week, when i found them and ask them to stop ( especially since there was plenty of unclaimed teritory on the island) i was pretty much mocked in french so we decided to go and show them we are ready to pvp and defend whats ours. First night we sink 1 galleon, 2 brigs and a sloop or something like that with another galleon running away, next morning i find the coward galleon next to one of our outposts so we sink that too, get around 4000 gold from it. They attk back, sink all our ships which is fine, then we retaliate back sinking another galleon, another brig, and raiding their dock for a nice prize of 24k gold. They retaliate again, destroying about 25-30% of the mini dock i had made. We now prepare for our response including over 200 explosive barrels when we are told to their main player Milenium is crying that he is a solo player ( he is not) and we are harrasing him. We dont attack since he said he would not attack anymore either. Then the next morning we wake up to our main base destroyed well over 70% ( screenshots included in the post). Now my question, WHY do we have rules if we arent going to enfore them? Can i also go destroy a players base over 50% and just get a warning and a slap on the wrists?
