Claim Block Limit Increased [Main Server]

Postby sorifiend » Sat Jan 05, 2013 4:35 pm

We have updated claim blocks for the Tasman world.

All ranks receive 20 blocks per hour online.

Bonus blocks per level:
Lv1: 300
Lv2: +1000
Lv3: +2500
Lv4: +5000
Lv5: +15000
Lv6: +160000

Bonus claim blocks per rank:
Donor: +2500
Donor: +5000
Donor: +15000
Donor: +160000
Mod/Admin: +5000

A higher level/rank also receives the claim blocks for the levels below it.
Eg: A Lv3 player gets 3800 bonus blocks (Lv1 300 + Lv2 1000 + Lv3 2500)

Updated (2013-07-23): To encourage survival players to level up, and to give donors a better bonus.

Awesome. Does the rank Builder get any extra claim blocks?

Yes, builders get an additional 1000 blocks, however this does not stack with any staff rank

Those seem like fairly good numbers, although there is one small issue I have to bring up. Someone could get to Green Donor Level 6, claim a massive area of space, and then disappear for a while, say, on school camp or a holiday in some other area. Could that become a severe issue for sufficiently lengthy disappearence periods, and if so, what can be done about it? I know getting to Green Donor Level 6 is very hard, but as time goes on, it could become a major problem, since more and more people will become more and more experienced, and ranking up will be easier for a larger mass.

Didn't all mods get a 5000 block increase around the start of tasman?

Hey Buddy

Most of the long time or higher level players will often build in a remote location so claims should never be an issue.
We can and do remove large silly claims that are made near spawn areas, just let me know if you find one.

Claims also expire automatically:
    Claims made with a spade will expire after 30 days of no activity
    Claims made with a chest will expire after 7 days of no activity
