@RexXxuS only a suggestion as we have no really sensefull possibility to deconstruct ships in a decent time.
Is it possible to implement a tool to sell ships for credits or maybe combatsteel/resources to the server?
Maybe it could work with a chatbot command like “cb:sellship ID” where you put the ship’s ID of one of your owned ships, the ship gets fully deleted and you get a kind of refund in form of credits or resources.
I guess the server can not check how much blocks from which material are used to build the the ship, so there would be several ways to exploit that.
Therefore the refund would have to be much lower than the ships value (e.g the value of a ship constructed with the cheapest material normal steel or the like) or prohibit selling ships if they have one ore more blocks out of normal steel/hardened steel.
Some indications could be taken from the current market prices, so a 20k block ships out of combat steel would have a value in credits of round about 800k credits (999 combatsteel ~ 40k), then reduce that amount by some kind of fee maybe 25% - 50% , so one could get a refund of 400k credits or 10 stacks combat steel.
Such kind of tool also would make much sense for captured ships and in case of credit refund would push the market as well.
So far… we dont know what kind of blocks (but that might change one day ;)), but we know how many blocks / devices the structure has.
Paying back only part sounds good to minimize exploits. ore/money… needs to be defined.
But such a function is possible. We thought about a destroy function too (for totally bugged ships) but this would be even nicer.
Block L would mean combat blocks. So we can’t give you even 1 sathium back because your whole ship could be build only with S Blocks. So yeah… currently wouldn’t be satisfied for everyone we think. Soon we have more options but now we need a different way.
