Petition Regarding: Ships vanishing after one year
Posted 06 February 2012 - 05:34 PM
This is not documented anywhere in the game and players are not warned in any way shape or form that this is going to happen.
Immortals have also stated that policy is that no reimbursement or restoration of the ships will ever be granted.
FWIW: I have not lost a ship in this way, simply posting this because in the course of guiding I've seen numerous people who return to the game ask where the hell their ship is.
If you agree that this is a silly policy and should be changed, please post here and see if enough people speak up to get it changed to at least warn people of the 'feture' if not have it removed entirely.

It seems as though it would fit in there, though if this section of the help file is accurate, it also seems as though ships getting deleted wouldn't be a problem. It seems to give the impression that they would merely be dry-docked.
In any case, I voted for the option of warning. If the ships are not dry-docked and are simply deleted to conserve space, I don't like it. However, if it needs to happen, some steps need to be taken to notify the owner of the ship.

It would be great to get a comment from the staff on this, a) in regards to why, and as to why people can't get stuff restored from a clearly ridiculous policy.
Also it would be good to clarify if this happens if the user doesn't sign on in a year, or simply the ship isn't used in a one-year period. What actually determines "inactivity"?

If I buy a house with RU and a ship with RU, why would one disappear and not the other. In the worst case they should be restorable with a renewal token

Why not just start deleting gear, homes, and other in-game obtainables after some arbitrary time period?
Gear, homes, and other in-game obtainables used to be deleted for inactivity all the time.
Down with hoarding! Burn the village! Arrrr!

For what purpose? To save a bit of primary/secondary memory?
Deleting anything due to inactivity is pointless. People come. People go. People return. Every additional active player in the game adds to the dynamics, it is the fundamental source of Success for MM. I remember times when I would be the only player logged on, and that is not the place we should be aiming to be.

They will autodelete after unuse if not wrecked, after 48 months, which is 4 years. I can probably remove this, though.
They do auto drydock after 240 days of unuse, though, to keep the harbors free.
Oh, and they autodrydock if they are left in SPK after a reboot, as well.
I should check the help entry and make sure it's accurate.

If so, I am mistaken.
I do remember a couple of months ago, at least two people came back within a couple weeks time to find their ships deleted, and Sueno stated pretty emphatically that ships are deleted after 1 rl year, and that no replacements are offered.
