So with the current chat system, it is next to impossible to really coordinate sanctuaries or really even chat, because too much chat makes it really hard to donate because the donate windows will move. Most people don’t want to go off game just to communicate with alliance members, so we end up with what my alliance sanctuaries look like.
Everything is a mess. We have a ton of level 5s and usually only one or two that break the magical level 7. The reason is that, when a person goes to put their dinosaurs in a sanctuary, they put all 4 in the same spot or as many as they can fit. This creates a feedback loop. No one wants to care for dinos that aren’t in the highest sanctuary they have dinosaurs in, and they’re usually only caring for one at a time. A prime example is I am working on tryko. Therefore I only care for my kentro right now.
I’ve tried communicating with the others to only put one dino in each sanctuary, but most of them still just do the easy thing and dump as many dinos in the sanctuaries as will fit. So our sanctuaries never make it above level 7.
The solution? Make the person who creates a sanctuary the manager of it. Meaning they can impose rules on what is allowed in. One dinosaur per person. Only rares. Only epics. Only the same species. The customizability would allow those of us who want a higher level sanctuary to work together.
Also it would keep people who are still learning from dominating a high level sanctuary. We used to have one member(before they left for unrelated reasons) who was putting nundasuchus in the highest sanctuary we had every time they got the chance.
But I caution against letting people kick dinos out of sanctuaries. I think that would be too much power.
Edit: also maybe allowing people to name the sanctuary if they choose. Example I could name mine “kentro sanctuary” and tell people it’s accepting only kentros.
