You’ll be pleased to hear that we’re just rolling out another update to Boundless! Those of you who have tried out the latest testing version will be familiar with what’s coming, but let’s go over it all here;
First up is the new Beacon Reclaim system we’ve implemented. From now on, when a beacon expires, the contents won’t be simply lost, but instead will be stored within the beacon itself ready to be reclaimed by the owner. The aim of the beacon system is not to punish players, but to protect land. This will provide a safety net for those unfortunate accidents when a beacon is allowed to expire.
A side effect of this is the new Spark item - any unused Spark in the beacon will be converted to a new Item, which can be bought and sold as normal.
It’s important to note that Beacons still need to be fuelled, and that the beacon expiry system is otherwise unchanged.
We’ve also introduced a new range of signs, with Glass Pane Signs now useable. Further to this, those citizens with Gleam Club membership can now use Emojis on all their signs.
After some time on testing, we’re now implementing the Beacon Compactness rules. These will ensure that players aren’t able to work around plotting restrictions, and have been described at length over here;
