I have 5 alts living together in a cluster and had all of them connected. Yesterday I changed something and now cannot get my fifth alt to reconnect to the rest.Ive tried [plotting and unplotting, but I must be missing something. Ive been playing a long time, but I’ve never had this much trouble reconnecting a settlement before. Pretty sure this is user error not a bug, hence posting in General. Any suggestions are welcome.
hey photodylan nice to see you still playing longtime no see
sorry no plot expert just saying hi
Check your beacons, did your unplot cause you to end up going uncompact on one of your other beacons? A recent change they’ve done is the compactness system will 0-value a beacon’s prestige (And thus it won’t count towards settlement) if its too sprawled out. Got a location I can swing by to have a look?
I see here is a string of plots that appear to be “road” plots according to the settlement visualization. If these plots are necessary, try filling out that area a bit more to being that in to the settlement, @Photodylan.
Still having issues?
Thanks to everyone for their help but I think I need Dev help on this. I have over 16 weeks of Gleam Club left but when I look at my alts beacons they say unfuelled removed from world. But if I load the alt whose beacon it is the beacon reverts to fueled and acting normally. If I then switch back to the first character the beacon now reads as normal. Havent checked all the beacons yet, but I checked 2 and they had the same condition.
Can this get moved to support or do I need to cross post?
Hey, good to see you again as well. I quit and restarted like 3 times, but still hollowing out mountains for relaxation.
It is a known bug. The expired beacon thing that are not really expired.
Thanks for the help everyone. I tried a bunch of stuff then placed a new beacon, switched it to my master control and both beacons magically reconnected to the settlement. If a Dev has time to take a look at the situation I would appreciate it as I would hate for all this to keep happening.
