Bring Back Rupture Potions?

    Before the server reset, Rupture potions were an excellent way to break down unwanted things on an island, like old or unwanted schematics. Now that those are gone, tearing things down or changing part of an island (when a full island reset isn't in order) is extremely tedious. I'm not sure why they were removed in the first place (perhaps griefing became an issue?), but it seems like a very useful mechanic has been removed from the game.

    If Rupture potions were removed due to griefing or player complaints about mis-throwing a potion and accidentally destroying things, I'm wondering if an "Are you sure you want to do this?" mechanic could be implemented, sort of like schematics have--you have to click a couple times to make the change to your island, and that sort of mechanic would prevent misclicking and accidentally destroying things. Alternatively (or additionally), using the potion could be limited to the Owner of an island only, or perhaps a manager, to prevent griefing. If only the Owner can use the potion, griefing is virtually impossible; if only the Owner or Manager can use it, griefing is still virtually impossible, provided players really trust their island mates (and if they don't, that's not the server's fault...)

    Basically, I wish there was a speedy way to get rid of unwanted schematics or clear areas on my island. I have a few builds/schematics I wish I could get rid of, but can't bring myself to put in the time to destroy, and I love my entire island too much to reset the whole thing. So, bringing back Rupture, with some tweaks, could be a great solution. Anyone else agree?

    (If there were other reasons for removing it, I'm very interested to hear about those!)

    I would love to bring back rupture pots. They were very useful before the reset and they would be very useful now.

    I believe they were removed because they were abused. If only managers+ could use them on an island as well as «are you sure» message, it would be amazing. Good idea! +1

    I agree, rupture potions should be re-added as they help out tremendously when taking down something you don’t want!

    I do miss the rupture pots, and I think if they could come back that’d be great. Maybe only owners using them.

    I think that they took out the pots because when the structure was shredded, many entities would fall off of it. Maybe if there was a way just to completely obliterate anything connected to the structure you want to destroy would allow the items to fall into the void, making it alot less laggy.

    Would love to see this make a comeback with some of the changes you’ve suggested! Thanks for making the suggestion. :D

    Ohhh, that's really interesting. I never thought of lag due to falling entities as a potential contributing factor to the pots being taken out of the game. If that was a reason, perhaps the explosion/damage effect could indeed be adjusted to include damage to entities, which would destroy a lot of them and prevent lag from them falling. Additionally, a cool down might be useful? That way someone couldn't throw 10 or 15 of the potions in a row; they'd have to wait maybe 30 seconds, which would give the server time to process the changes.

    I always used rupture potions to break down large schematics that were placed incorrectly on my island. I think adding a cooldown and having a confirm message to throw the potion would be a good idea as well. +1

    Agree with this! Rupture pots were so nice to remove misplaced schematics.

    Honestly, if you mess up adding in a schematic etc then that's your fault, you have a confirmation there xD -1

    I know, I didn't say misplaced. I said old or unwanted. I make sure not to misplace them. Sometimes you just get tired of things and want them gone, but don't wanna reset the whole island.

    Talk about frankens am I right. Xd
    But I could definitely see this pot coming back if changes could be made to the entities. Make it so they don't drop destroyed blocks?

    Full out thing that everyone should know by now, you guys do realize you can overlap schematics instead of finding a different place for an identical one.

    Yes, I'm aware, and I think most people know this. I do this for money-making schematics like Franken. Rupture would be nice for making larger scale changes to an island, though, like tearing down buildings and so on, in which case overlapping schematics would just make things worse rather than better.
