However, you have to take into account why we are introducing local banking.In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.
I do think this issue is greater than you realize, and it's a must have for launch, or let me rephrase, a must have for when the game is advertised for the masses, bc atm I'm not sure that will be the launch.Stealing mount is nr 1 grief factor of newbies.Blocking people into buildings is nr 2. I do not know a solution for nr 2, does anyone? How was in UW? Why wasn't this there a problem? I know pushing afk people with mounts was, but why couldn't you block people into buildings in safe zone?
if you add a channel time for mounting up you basically make bunny jumping the only way possible to escape. is that really what you want?same goes for mount always being out. DF is a fast game if shit hits the fan you don't have time to run back to where you parked your mount, or slowly spawn one and mount up.
It is still planned, but before doing that we need to solve issues with mounts being used as a way to block/grief other players.Not forgotten, just lower priority than other things.
