I think we should have a timer visible on beacons just like you see for portal gates. This would help everyone know when a beacon is going down beyond just the strength of a flame.
I was trying to set up a house and there was someone’s beacon but it appears completely dead. Yet somehow all the plots still showed owned and there was no way to tell if or when the timer would end. If I had some sort of count down at least I could know if this was a bug or that I just needed to come back in 12 hrs, etc.
Not to mention if we saw a beacon that was low but we knew the person we could give them a better estimate on how fast they need to resupply it, versus just a “umm the flame is out” which could be days to minutes left.
If you aren’t wanting to let people know when beacons we don’t own will expire then can we at least have a better way of telling if they are close to being dead.
