    Can Britannia Galleon decay like normal ships? I can't find this information on the website. Just to be sure in case I forgot to refresh it.


    Thanks

    Unfortunately yes, and I think that for an in game item that players can purchase with real money, this is not a good thing for the game.

    Personally, I'd much prefer that upon decaying the Britannian ship, rather than simply vanishing althougether, would transform back into "deed form" and be placed into the Bank Box of the Character that owns it.

    The hold's content would be lost (would get deleted during the process of changing the Ship into "deed form") but at least the player who bought it with real money would not loose it because it vanished totally....
    Also, this would still ensure that the Sea Lanes would not be annoyed by a number of non decaying large ships.

    I like the idea, but what would happen if, by some nasty quirk of fate, your bank box just happened to be full?

    Well, I guess the same as it happens with Holiday items. If the bank box is already at full capacity, the holiday items can exceed that limit. the player can only take items out of the bank box but not put in untill the limit has been met again.

    That is, as I see how it should work, the ship deed would not get lost, it would still be stored by the bank box in excess of the limit.

    That would work... I agree that the new expensive galleons should not decay and disappear...
