Islands on the Official Network now have a maximum z-value for how high Claim Flags can be placed, unique to the island. These are based on the highest terrain points, before considering mountains, large rock formations or steep pillars. The in-game HUD will let you know whether your current claim flag is in a valid location. If your claim flag is not in a valid location, when attempting to place a new one you will receive HUD feedback informing you whether a spot is valid or not. Players will have approximately a month (Mid/Late November) to reposition their flag to a new location. We’ll provide a more specific date closer to the patch which changes this. When placing the flag at the new spot, it will automatically destroy the old claim flag and transfer the inventory into the new flag.
Unofficials can activate this setting by changing the following config in their game.ini:
MaxSettlementFlagZ = 999999 (default, which means FlagZ can be placed at 99999 z height).
This is an offset value, if you adjust this, it will use the per-island specific max height + the offset. For example, making it 3000 will look for the highest ’legitimate’ location on an island, and then add an additional 3000 z to that height to determine the flag’s maximum location.
The following game.ini config can be used to destroy all invalid claim flags, please be advised that this cannot be reversed once done:
Fixed a bug which prevented Unofficial Servers on Xbox from being able to see the map.
