Britannia’s Ship Decay

edited March 17 in General Discussions
Had my brit ship disappear after a week of not logging into that account.  Is it possible it decayed from non use?  

I tried getting a rune from the harbor master but says it can’t be found.

 No one else had permission for it so I don’t think it was hijacked, if that is even a thing?

any thoughts?  I’m not super impressed since I paid for it recently.

    I might be remembering it as wrong but, since the Britannia Ship cost real money (Sovereigns at the UO store which cost real money to buy), it was my understanding that it could not decay ?

    But perhaps I might be remembering it as wrong ?

    Im unsure since this is all still pretty new to me.

    can they be scuttled by random NPC ships and sink?

    All ships Decay, including the Brittanian ship. it decayed and went *poof* Sucks I know, It happened to mine before i chose a lighthouse Veteran reward. you need to refresh the ship every couple of days by boarding it via the Mooring Lines to avoid this.

    This is what the UO Wiki says.

    Decay

    If not refreshed your ship will sink/disappear. Refreshing is done through opening the plank on a small ship, or double clicking the rope on a galleon. Since publish 110, March 2021 refreshing can also be done by initiating mouse movement or opening the ship’s cargo hold.  Ship decay follows the same steps as house decay, in the following time sequence:

    • Slightly Worn – 3 days
    • Somewhat Worn – 3 days
    • Fairly Worn – 3 days
    • Greatly Worn – 3 days
    • In Danger of Collapsing – 1 day

    This means the ship will ‘sink’ at the end of the 13th day.


    Now if this is not true and with the up coming event than this should be fix ASAP if not sooner, like NOW PLZ.  @Kyronix @Bleak

    Just logging in does not refresh.  Need to know when ship was last used.  He could have used his ship 2 weeks ago but logged in 1 week ago.  Just getting the facts.  I never leave my ships out and I do not use ships every time I play so it could be weeks between ship usage, this could also be the case of the OP but he leaves his ships out.  The reason I state this is because I did what the OP did and forget to refresh it the week prior that is why I no longer leave my ships out.  Also there are areas that if you leave your ship for an extended period it gets moved/deleted

    Have you lost ships that were under the 13 days?  You hear about this occasionally of a player losing a ship, IMHO if it were well documented then where are all the I lost my ship today post flooding the forums and where are all the bug reports.  I am not saying people have not lost ships before but we all know that some people, not all, tend to leave out facts to make it look like UO is at fault.  I am not saying the OP did this.  Will damage decay your ship faster?  Was the ship in Fel or parked where the beacons/pirates spawn.  Do they still delete ships that are blocking Sea/Cliff mining.

    That's about all he can do is make a 1 sentence observation.  If he really uses ships so often he could name one a date and not use it and prove what he says.

    I also dock my ships after use, so I would be fine if the decay was 3 days.  That would keep shipping lanes less cluttered.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Ah that sucks, but thanks.  I figured it decayed, I should have just dry docked it knowing I’d be out of away.

    This is probably the cause.  I used the characters but there’s a chance I didn’t actually refresh the ship since I was training fishing last.

    I’ve read on others that this has been an issue, and even read that it’s go into the moving crate if lost.  I did check that, but it didn’t work.

    I was going to check UO website or just buy another one. But both things are down lol

    I didn't play for a while and lost an  Orc ship with 6 Pumpkin Cannons.  Sux to lose stuff, but the seas are already crowded with un manned ships.

    IMO if a Brit ship decays, it should go into your bank box.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    • Greatly Worn – 3 days
    • In Danger of Collapsing – 1 day

    This means the ship will ‘sink’ at the end of the 13th day.


    Now if this is not true and with the up coming event than this should be fix ASAP if not sooner, like NOW PLZ.  @ Kyronix @ Bleak

    The OP said a week is that 13 days 
    Just logging in does not refresh.  Need to know when ship was last used.  He could have used his ship 2 weeks ago but logged in 1 week ago.  Just getting the facts.  I never leave my ships out and I do not use ships every time I play so it could be weeks between ship usage, this could also be the case of the OP but he leaves his ships out.  The reason I state this is because I did what the OP did and forget to refresh it the week prior that is why I no longer leave my ships out.  Also there are areas that if you leave your ship for an extended period it gets moved/deleted
    I'm on multiple ships multiple times a day I'm fairly certain the timer being broken is well documented 
    Have you lost ships that were under the 13 days?  You hear about this occasionally of a player losing a ship, IMHO if it were well documented then where are all the I lost my ship today post flooding the forums and where are all the bug reports.  I am not saying people have not lost ships before but we all know that some people, not all, tend to leave out facts to make it look like UO is at fault.  I am not saying the OP did this.  Will damage decay your ship faster?  Was the ship in Fel or parked where the beacons/pirates spawn.  Do they still delete ships that are blocking Sea/Cliff mining.
    If you're not sure or don't believe it's a bug feel free to search the forum 
    So that is the best answer to all the questions I asked, TY
    That's about all he can do is make a 1 sentence observation.  If he really uses ships so often he could name one a date and not use it and prove what he says.

    I also dock my ships after use, so I would be fine if the decay was 3 days.  That would keep shipping lanes less cluttered.
    I should have docked it, but I didn’t think about it.

    lesson learned I guess.  I’ll just buy a new one.
    I didn't play for a while and lost an  Orc ship with 6 Pumpkin Cannons.  Sux to lose stuff, but the seas are already crowded with un manned ships.

    IMO if a Brit ship decays, it should go into your bank box.

    I totally agree, considering that it is an item that cost real money to have, since it is bought on the UO Store with Sovereigns which cost real money to get.

    @Kyronix , can we please have this change to have the Britannia's Ship go to the bank box rather then decay ? Thank you.

    The timer is broken 
    How so?  I do not leave my ships out for any reason.
    This is what the UO Wiki says.

    Decay

    If not refreshed your ship will sink/disappear. Refreshing is done through opening the plank on a small ship, or double clicking the rope on a galleon. Since publish 110, March 2021 refreshing can also be done by initiating mouse movement or opening the ship’s cargo hold.  Ship decay follows the same steps as house decay, in the following time sequence:

    • Slightly Worn – 3 days
    • Somewhat Worn – 3 days
    • Fairly Worn – 3 days
    • Greatly Worn – 3 days
    • In Danger of Collapsing – 1 day

    This means the ship will ‘sink’ at the end of the 13th day.

    Can be earned through quest as well so no need for protection just fix decay speeds

    There Popps

    was there a need for the stupid super copy quote. NO

    SHORT.........SHARP........CONCISE

    please learn this and apply to your future posts

    People may actually read and dare I say it agree with you........

    Decaying Britannia's Ship to bank box.

    Have you thought about the amount of programming required for that?
    Or the number of possible exploits that might make possible?

    No other item in the game does that and they have never been able to get the light house to work 100% of the time.
    It has a simple solution Dry Dock Your Ship  everyone else would appreciate it


    It's unthinking suggestions like that that gets my blood pressure up and probably why the programming team rarely comment here (They have to be polite)

    He quoted the part he liked.  :D
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Yes I did and I still think it going to bank box is a good idea and @Pawain is the one that came up with it and I did not quote the rest because I do not agree with it.
  • TimTim Posts: 797
    I don't
    Leave it in the water lose it is the best solution.

    There are 5 ships parked on the other side of Winterspur on LS.  Parked ships should be sent out of the beacon areas after a few hours unoccupied. 
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    I prefer the idea of if left in beaconed arias they decay much faster.
