With all of the wonderful builds this game has to offer, we have malicious and non malicious things that happen to builds that – for a lack of a better way of saying it, have met the end of their first life.
I have on a number of occasions found a beautiful build starting to decay or the beacon expired and I wanted to save/rebuild it. But there is that one person who comes by, or maybe there was the click bug where you happen to have a bomb in your hand-- or maybe you selected what you thought was a heal bomb because you hit the ground hard enough and wanted to heal yourself… And instead… it was a regen bomb… The build is gone, or blocks are destroyed like wiping the area.
I would like to suggest a protection like Meteors do on recently expired beacons. – Now… You can still manually break blocks, but you cannot regen the place. This will allow people if they are trying to save something, or maybe transfer plots/builds and avoid bad things from happening. And if all you can do is hit things, at least the blocks stay behind.
Obviously, natural decay will progress on it’s own, but maybe after a period of time the beacon itself will finally fade? I don’t know in what ratio things naturally degrade on their own-- if it’s machines first, or blocks? or from the top down? Or just random?
Either way, It’s a suggestion I think could benefit a lot of people. And prevent trolls, or accidents from happening in the future.
