Maybe the newb worlds around SWI will magically open up canals as the boats try to pass through.  I am picturing something like the fireplaces in the original Santa Clause movie.

I think you are a little confused.  The bridges he was talking about drawing are the kind you use for dental work.

Well, since you'll only be able to take off from SWI, I won't have to worry about putting additional boundary checking in Wink

So basically only anyone with a base on the old world facing towards swi has to worry about securing their docks? Making this thread almost useless to 99% of the tw community?

I would like a few more definite facts.

How many weeks do we have to 'secure our docks' ? Theres over 100 in my base so it will take me a long time to put up fences.
Will unfinished docks need protecting ?
Will you actually be idiotic enough to allow people to land at docks before giving people the ability to destroy all the old docks ?
Since this is such a major change to game dynamic, have you considered wiping old docks to protect people who maybe, I don't know, don't check the forums a lot and have lots of left over docks ?

Well, right now only the docks in the old world facing SWI need secured.  Docks will be destroyable eventually, and they may wear out. I'm not sure yet.

Right now, however, the only dock that will actually work is the one on SWI.  Every player in the game will be sent a PM explaining the change before I make all docks work.

so would this also mean u have a time limit on the boat? if your launching from swi, then your woodduck would trans u back after the alotted time.

right?

I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day...

DAMNIT. I keep forgetting that other people have a time limit on SWI....  @#$^

Well, I guess that you'll have a limited time on the boat.  When I add the quest in, there will be some modifications to not transport you back after you start....
