    I found out that the horse feeder and spike can be used to trap players, so I guess AI raiders are gonna have a hard time, lol.

    I know AI players can destroy spikes they have done it to me plenty of times and the horse feeder was patched a while back.

    Not sure what advice you are looking for just put as many layers of walls between your valuables and the open zone around your base.

    The only thing I will say and I am sure the majority will object to this: honey combing is unimaginative, wasteful and counter productive and there are many better and less resource intensive base layouts you can come up with

    Anyway its all moot, if any pvp base raiding is ever introduced it will be in sec7 not your homebase...

    I agree with you though, honeycombing is very unimaginative.

    Thanks Z, but...

    What is wrong with me!

    1 days? Sorry... honeycomb seems to be the best for most of the players. It is ugly but working.Also some bait boxes outside for the raiders.

    Actually…
    We could honeycomb with a maze made of a few doors and make a few of the endings traps so that they can't raid and keep away without our game lagging cause of a million doors opening.

    Well, isn't that imaginative? If they try to follow the doors, make it so that a few of them are trolls, or make all of them trolls and make a completely different entrance.

    At the end of the day its your base built it however you like; but no honeycombing is not imaginative, its ugly, its resource intensive and very very intellectually lazy.

    I agree, I didn't make a honeycomb base, because it looks awful. I choose not to raid, 2 stone rooms is enough for me from the horde.

    Another idea by Albert Einstein:
    What if you use troll boxes and refined melting furnaces to funnel people?

    I put 3 layers of stone walls between the outside and my valuables room. So thats 4 walls. I didnt start raiding until at least i had all inner walls made of stone. The outsides were still 2nd lvl wood. Countless runs to the oak zones, yes. But it's worth it.
    And yes a bait chest with low dur armor is needed outside. Or 1 air filter or electronic board thing or anything. I just put low dur armors. And try to put some 2nd lvl wood walls so they make a lot of noise trying to go inside.

    And raid is kinda frustrating yes. Dont get your hopes up too much, but one every like 20 raids you get rich bases with lots of swat sets or guns. I got 2.5 full racks of guns now and by doing police dept and bunker, i replenish enough not to shrink the collection even tho i use it. You'll find the balance.
    After every raid you get a revenge raid in a period of about 24 hours. The task to get a normal raid is hard sometimes. But you'll get used to it. It's all i do now anyway, besides trying to find steel for walls. I only just finished my 3*3 steel room omigosh thats so hard. I'm still nowhere as rich as those youtubers but i can see i'm heading there now. Still love this game but i only play for 6 months now (since april1st) so who knows what i think in a year haha

    Congrats, in my 6-8 months (don't remember) of gaming I made only one layer of stone walls. I didn't play very intensively.
