Once we've prepared the server changes, I'll post an announcement, but you will have at least 2 weeks from today (or more depending on how long it takes me to do this) to modify or / relocate your bases.

Planned changes:
  • Remove UAV and terminals. They are WAAYY OP, even against expert opponents.
  • Implement a "no floating safes" rule. Now all flags and safes must be reachable if explosives are used to breach a base. This is just common sense.
  • Implement the flag stealing feature and associated notifications. This should encourage people's bases to be out of high traffic areas.
  • Review/test the safe hacking and code lock grinding configuration. Current config should be that this is enabled only when 5 or more players are online and only 3 safes can be hacked per restart. Also need to verify that batteries are available for grinders.
  • Since all flags and safes are in-play, base-raid explosive costs will be increased. Now you have something to spend your millions on.

The changes are now live:

RULE CHANGES
Flags or safes cannot be floating or over water. All flags and safes must be reachable if lock grinding and/or explosives are used to breach a base. The bottom of the pole must be accessible and not hidden inside of an object.

DOOR LOCK GRINDING
  • Grinders and Batteries can now be purchased from a Hardware Trader.
  • Grinder and batteries just need to be in your inventory.
  • There is a chance that your grinder breaks or you fail

SAFE HACKING
  • 5 players must be online
  • A laptop must be in your inventory
  • There is a chance that your laptop breaks or you fail

FLAG STEALING
  • 5 players must be online
  • The higher the territory level, the longer it takes to steal and the higher the reward is for selling it/restoring it.
  • A "Stolen Flag" box will drop on the ground which you can sell at a Trader.
  • The thief will appear to have a flag on their back
  • The pole will remain, but the flag will be missing
  • You have 7 days to go to the Office Trader and pay ransom to get your flag back or the territory will be deleted.
  • You must then restore it at the pole.
  • After 6 days, your doors and safes will unlock.

UAVs
  • UAV backpacks and UAV terminals have been removed from all players, containers, and vehicle inventories
  • AI should no longer spawn with UAV equipment
  • Our anti-cheat tools should detect unauthorized UAVs. If you see someone using one, please let us know.

NOTIFICATIONS
  • Grinding, breaching explosives, safe hacking, or flag stolen will notify you via the Exile Discord Bot.
  • To turn on Bot notifications, you must do the following:
  1. Join ExileMod Discord: http://www.exilemod.com/discord
  2. Verify your phone #
  3. Find the bot 'Exile Mod XM8'
  4. Direct Message the bot "!help" for all instructions
  5. Direct Message the bot "!steam" to link, or verify you have linked, Discord to Steam. Click the link that appears and login
  6. Direct Message the bot "!grant HY5F" HY5F is our server ID, which you can also find in your in-game XM8 under the Mobile XM8 button
  7. You should see this message:

FYI - grinders and batteries are expensive now. They can also be found as somewhat rare industrial loot.
