Make Structure Pickup Timer Infinite

There is a setting that allows you to set the time limit for how long you have to pick up a structure piece in vanilla ARK before it’s permanent. I think we should set it so that there is no timer, and players can pick up structure pieces whenever they want, and as often as they want. Aside from making building in ARK easier and less resource heavy, it would also have the benefit of giving players the ability to, for example, set up a trap, use it, then pick it up and take it with them instead of leaving it there or having to demo it. It just makes sense to me.

    I disagree on the infinite part, as that’s an S+ feature on the Patreon servers. However, I do agree with increasing the amount of time to an hour, maybe 2 solely for the purpose of taming pens.

      I feel like just because it’s a feature with S+ on the Pat servers doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be an option on vanilla. Granted, I’m not a Patreon anymore, but I feel like the majority of the reason people use S+ is less to pick up building pieces whenever and more to make use of all the automated bells and whistles the mod has to make things easier for people.

      Besides the trap useage, players could have an easier time building bases without having to worry about placing a piece wrong and having to demo it, and a lot of other pieces, to correct the mistake way later, costing them not just a ton of time, but resources.

    i completely agree with nast on this one.

    when building bases and traps and then having to demo it because you found out something was wrong then spend the next hour farming resources again is a pain in the butt.

    S+ is great for automated features and should stay on the pat servers but the feature to be able to pick up and move should be enabled as i belive it would GREATLY decrease the clutter of traps on each server because people are not worried about the cost making the items anymore nad move it to another location with ease

    While being able to pick up items indefinitely is a great feature of S+, it’s not the only or even the best reason to use it. Building is much better in and streamlined.

    Allowing all servers unlimited structure pickup would improve quality of life tremendously without detracting from the usefulness of S+.
