All structures, animals & creatures that have not been loaded by the owning company for 12 days will be marked with a red hammer, this is the warning that these objects will soon decay.
If the 14 day threshold is exceeded, the corresponding objects will be deleted from the game.
All decays as well as the warnings will be recorded in Discord under: #decay-warnings-and-logs.
You can view them at any time!
The Decay works only directly during the server restart and has no influence on the performance
Please note that Decay markers (red hammer warnings) will not disappear before a server restart, but this is not a concern if you have visited them in the meantime.
Vacation / Absence?
If your entire company cannot play for a certain period of time (e.g. vacation) you can create a ticket and be added to the exception list.
Please note that this does not prevent a claim that has not been rendered for 10 days from being stolen in PvE.
Also, no admin will actively prevent this by joining the company!
Please also note that animals can still starve and ships can sink due to the wear of the planks.
So take precautions before your absence!
For the following islands there are special regulations, which you should absolutely pay attention to.
Please also pay attention to the regulations for these islands, the decay regulations support them, but are by no means a free pass, e.g. for permanent parking combined with daily rendering!
Nassau & Other Cities
Ships & animals in cities decay if they have not been rendered by the owning company for 48 hours.
Ships will have a debuff that will cause them to decay after 3 days, even if they have been rendered! You can remove this debuff by changing the grid!
Powerstone Islands, Yeti Cave
Ships & creatures on these islands will decay if they have not been rendered by the owning company for 48 hours.
Ships will have a debuff that will cause them to decay after 3 restarts, even if they have been rendered! You can remove this debuff by changing the grid!
Structures decay after every restart (except Radioactive Atlas)!
