- to take over a settlement (As the bigger one) you’d need the permission of the warden in game.
- if you do not, encircling the settlement so they can’t expand would be considered greifing and you still won’t absorb their prestige since that would require you to have the wardens permission.
This concept would do a main thing really. It would give the power to the smaller settlement which with guilds goes half way. not everyone wants to be absorbed by bigger settlements and not everyone wants their hard earned prestige to go toward a settlement that might be hostile to them.
As it stands now (as far as im aware of, let me know if it’s otherwise) a big settlement can take over and absorb your prestige regardless if you are guilded. and there is nothing you can do about it. your prestige get’s ‘used’ to get them or keep them at the top of the world and your plans and desires won’t be taken into consideration unless they decide to, at which point they might not be hostile anyways. We need a way to defend our settlements completely from those who desire to play aggressive toward everyone. The planets are big yes, but apparently sometimes this isn’t ‘big enough’.
Please be civil in the disccussion, i want to hear your ideas on this both pros and cons. Especially if you believe there can be another way to do this. than just needing permission from the warden of the settlement.
