Here are my fore-warnings
1: This is my first Topic on the boundless forums… or any other forum to be honest.
2: Sorry if this has already been discussed and I missed it, please tell me if I did and I will remove/end it.
3: I will probably edit this quite frequently (Spelling and grammar)
At the moment when you share a beacon with another player they are given access to;
- Warp conduits.
- Terrain editing.
However they can’t
- Edit beacon plots.
- Use beacon control.
- Contribute their plots to your beacon (Ends up with confusing places such as the Temple in Pixel gate)
What I am suggesting here is that as owner you can modify each member of your beacon to give or remove access to part of your beacon (This will also tie in with guilds when they are introduced)
The second part of this that I am suggesting is some changes to tokens and also a few new ones.
- Portal tokens, At the moment I think these fulfill their purpose perfectly and don’t need any changes.
- Location markers, At the moment I don’t see much purpose to these other than for temporary portals. My suggestion to improve these is to make it so that a player can convert a marker into a saved location. This would mean that if you are trying to share a mine or far off location with a friend you can simply give them a token which they can then use and set as a marker.
- Permission token, These are an extension of the beacon permissions suggestion. To use these an owner of a beacon would create one of these to give to another player, for example you could create a door access token for your mine beacon and then sell it in a plinth. If a player wanted to use your mine they could then buy a token and use it which would add them to your beacon with that specific permission, In this case Door access. Using this players could create paid warp links, Sell access to mining locations, Create premium shop areas or even make a museum.
Thanks for reading! If you have any ideas on how this could be improved or potential problems feel free to reply. I usually check the forums once or twice a day and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. (^-^)/
