Travel off deed, some ideas

Recommended Posts

1. Sleeping bags/swags:  I often travel by cart or boat and need to log out in the middle of nowhere.  I was wondering if we can get a feature of portable swags or sleeping bags?  These could be made from fur and sheets and be rolled up and carried in inventory or in carts and wagons, for those times you have to log out somewhere off deed.  Handy also if you see the 'server shutting down in ...seconds' come up and you are half an hour from your deed.


2. Portable ovens for ships.  These could be handy if you want to live on your ship, together with the sleeping bag mentioned above.


3. A way to secure your horse in the field, e.g. using a staff or other peg type device, this can be placed on a tile with the horse roped to this peg, while you log out.  Nobody can remove this but the person who placed it.  You can only ever only have one animals pegged to the ground.  Pegs decay in three irl days.  This is handy if you need to log out due to server shut down.  Also handy if you can do this on someone else's deed while you visit them.  You can log off and log back in still being able to lead your horse.


 


These are just a few ideas for travel and making it possible to live on boats and ships.

If you tame the animal, you can get it to log off with you, add a saddle and even if it respawns due to becoming untamed it will just stand there with a saddle on.


 


Branding allows you to identify the horse as yours in the cases of visiting a friend and leading on other deeds after a disconnect or restart.


 


+1 to a bed in the cart and/or on the boat, i used to love camping as a kid in the back of the station wagon, ah the sweet claustrophobic memories   :D

As long as the Sleeping Bag doesn't give Sleep Bonus, if you want that then sleep properly in a Bed.

The game already provides methods to secure your horse while traveling as mentioned in posts above.


 


-1 to SB from portable beds.  sleep bonus is a perk/bonus, not something you permanently carry around with you to use under any circumstance.

+1 to all. As said above the 3rd is optional as already implemented in a way.

 

Make sleeping bags hard to make (harder than beds, not necessarily requiring skill though), and give sleep bonus or half sleep bonus.

+1 to all, the addition of a peg would allow you to secure a horse you are leading as well. Half sleep bonus for sleeping bags sounds like a good option.  And while we are at it, why not add tents made from more fur, leather and a few ropes?  Just a quick hut type house in the field.  Can provide some protection against smaller animals (cats, cave bugs, lions, wolves, bears) but no against larger (crocs, scorps, spiders, trolls, lava fiends).

This. Even at half bonus, that defeats the purpose of getting a bonus in somewhere you've set yourself up.

+1 on the road travel, gypsy lol. Who said you need a house.
I'm not a fan of the horse logging off system.

This; +1
