On Monday the flag color changed on the cluster, so last night I was transferring to my base on each map to update to the current flag color.
When I got to my RAG base, I noticed that my Thylas and Rexs were all out of order. And it was obvious that they had found something, and were now farther away from my base than they should be. this surprised me, because these dinos were in a dino leash containment zone, and the zone was surrounded by plant X turrets. Notice this was worded in Past Tense. All of my dino leashs and plant x turrets were gone!
I checked the tribe log, and all of them had "auto-decayed" the previous day. (Tuesday), yet I was just at the base on Sunday, so how could they have decayed in 72 hours, when they have been fine for 3 months prior, including me not logging on for 5-6 days at a time. I can only assume this was some weird bug, and best I can tell, I only lost a couple of my Thylas. So I'm guessing it was an alpha that spawn and was kited into my base area.
On this cluster, the admins give plant X turrets that hit for 32k each shot, they do this to help reduce lag, and tell people not to build huge walled/gated bases. It normally works great, but in the case of this autodecay bug, it sucks.
Anywhoooo, I spent the rest of the night getting the dinos back in order, cryopodding some for safety, and redoing the dino leashes and turrets. I also added some regular turrets and loaded them with ammo, as back up.
Because I have been spending the majority of my time on Extinction and Valguerro, I think tonight I will go back to RAG, and cryopod or transfer (to Val) most of the dinos.
I can then also reduce my "land claim" area on RAG, as I won't need it for the high number of dinos I originally had. (Rag was my Rex breeding base originally, but will move them to VAL)
My small base on the Island map only has a couple Ptera and a few cryo'd dinos. It is small and takes up very little land. My base on Scorched is literally a 4x4 base with a bed an storage. And my base on Aberration is larger more of a 6x15 size, but is way off the beaten path, and no one else is even near me. I only have a couple ravagers and Pteras parked inside the base, and a couple tek stegos parked on the roof.
I have a base on each map, because of the lost character bug. To get around that, I actually have a toon on each map, so I need a base to house them safely. Though when I logged into SE last night, a Pego was attacking my character who was lying in bed, and it had already killed my Jerboa. Apparently Pegos can get thru open windows. I was not aware they could do that, but there is no other way they got inside the tiny base.
