    locked FF despawned and it's now in the spawn location

    Hi guys,

    The FF on our server was locked with a vehicle inside and after a few days it despawned and it's now in the spawn location.

    I'm quite sure we used it 3 or 4 days before it despawned. And yes I'm absolutely sure it was locked after we used it.


    Has this happened to anyone else?

    One possible reason is, that every vehicle despawns after about 4 days, if no one gets into it.

    The second reason could be, every Admin on Lf-servers can "reset" the flying fortress or the excavators, so they will despawn and respawn at the spawnpoints.

    I think we had our FF locked for longer then that. And it didn't despawned.

    I'm the owner of the server. None of the admins reseted the FF or the Excavator that was stored inside.

    The FF will definitely despawn if it is left untouched for 4 days. I don't know if you have to actually unlock and re-lock it, but that's what I did just to be sure it was "interacted with" and wouldn't despawn.

    I will give u another 2 versions:

    1) FF unlocker, it is very rare thing from sectors B's major, last time we found it - we was able to hack ff with 10 bataries - this is legal way of stealing.

    2) Cheaters, who can spawn unlocker + batteries. If there is big and old clans on server they can have it even dupe it, so it's not hard to loose FF in this case.

    P.S. common despawn time for every vehicle in the game is 5 days.

    I don't think it was unlocked. It would take then quite a while to crack a 6 digit code.

    It probably despawned. We didn't knew about the 5 days.
    But still, should a locked FF despawn?

    Honestly, it probably wouldn't hurt to make the FF not despawn when locked, other than it may be more difficult because current vehicle code doesn't work like that or something (complete speculation, I don't code)

    That's an issue for the devs to consider.



    To clarify the above about hacking the FF, there is an EILSC HACKING TOOL from Sector B that is a very rare spawn. It takes batteries and multiple tries but it will unlock the FF without any code at all. It's used to balance the fact that there is only one FF and it can even be locked in the first place, so you can't keep (literally) all to yourself for eternity

    Here's another idea, someone flew a heli into it to blow it up. The thing is worthless.

    The FF was locked. Even if it was destroyed like that it would have move the the location where it was locked.
    Even hithing it with a car would work. The FF would move to the location where it was locked.
