Yes. I'm sure such a solution would work but it would mean a complete rewrite of the code.

I talked to Loftar about this at one point and he said that their are issues with that solution for decay tics, it was quite a while ago but iirc it was that it would end up creating too much load on the servers at certain points, so the solution would have to be to create a system that during off peak times tiles that hadn't been loaded in a while would have to be loaded have their decay tics calculated and then unloaded and it required more recored keeping, server resources, some systems to be rewritten, and just required more work than it was worth to be added it.

Top kek, I have no idea how the code is structured, I can only make assumptions. Sounds like it isn't modular enough. I like to break code down into many different functions and have it so function X takes Y parameter, and outputs Z result. That way you can swap out function X with function W and have it take the same parameters and produce the same result. That would make it way easier to optimize and expand.

Have you guys thought about letting dedicated autists volunteer as programmers?

Is this why the server status says there are over 400 players per day? Around 40 of us logging in 10 alts to grow fruits. What a crap mechanic!
