Please add a multiplier (CONF option) to extend the decay time of dungeon mob corpses. This would be a multiplier applied after regular decay options.
After running some of the side quests in Deadmines (collect miner cards, kill Thistenettle), I realized that the 10 minute mob respawn timer simply isn’t enough when it comes to instances.
By the time I had completed both quests in that little area off the main path to Deadmines entrance, all the mobs I had killed to get there had respawned.
My current CONF option is 10 minutes for “looted” which works great for overland zones but in dungeons it simply isn’t enough.
I propose adding the following:
Description: Multiplier for Corpse.Decay.* to configure how long creature corpses stay
in dungeons. This delay is applied AFTER all other delays
Rate.Corpse.Decay.Dungeon = 1.5
So when calculating the decay, you would apply the dungeon multiplier last:
[ol][li]Check what type of mob it is to get the base decay[/li] [ul]Corpse.Decay.NORMAL
[li]Corpse.Decay.RARE[/li] [li]Corpse.Decay.ELITE[/li] [li]Corpse.Decay.RAREELITE[/li] [/ul]
[li]Determine if it is looted and apply the multiplier[/li] [ul]Rate.Corpse.Decay.Looted
[li]Determine if it is in a dungeon and apply the multiplier[/li] [ul]Rate.Corpse.Decay.Dungeon
Defaulting to 1.5 allows the dungeon mobs to decay at a slightly slower speed than overland mobs. Server admins can then tweak it in either direction as they see fit.
