I had this before myself with my exo tokens… that was the reason I started charging for the tokens but decided to go back to free… sucks to see players doing such a thing (unless it was accidental instead of taking one they took all) I don’t see the reason to go that low and take tokens
I think it would be better to have a stand/basket/display that allows only one item per player.
I do think it would be nice to have a history log of actions that could be seen by a planet founder, guild leader, etc. That way, if someone with permissions removed things they weren’t suppose to, you could take action.
Definitely an annoying issue. Seen happen many times. Experienced it my self few times. Maybe a stand they is attached to a portal that will automatically generated the tokens?
Also thought it would be a good idea for a non owner interaction on inactive portals that would allow a player to obtain the token directly, this way the owner doesn’t have to worry about restocking the tokens.
Curious if they could add in a set of commands like we have in other games.
12:03 Jimmy removed 3 portal conduits
12:08 Sally added 100 oort shards to a portal -100N 1294E
01:16 Sam placed 157 refined meta blocks
03:44 Dan donated 2345 coins
05:23 Sarah opened a portal -45N 934E
Yeah this is basically the approach I plan to take or some very simple UI additions … See what they track and don’t and how easy it is to add some history to it or something. I feel honestly adding some log to shop stands might be nice for those running shops so they could follow-up, etc. No matter what I would be careful on the effort to achieve.
Regardless of the thief-deterrent reasons, I think it would be great to have a “last purchaser” record. One of the sadder parts of having a shop stand is not knowing who came to buy your stuff. I think it would help foster friendships and relationships
I am also strongly supportive of the X-per-patron shop stand idea.
The last thought I have is that people in general should not think of portals as zero-sum. People have as many portals as they find useful. There’s nothing to actually be gained by trolling other portal hubs on the same planet. If I want a portal at X place, having no tokens available there won’t deter me, I’ll just PM the owner… if Y place wants portals they need to provide a useful hub.
