    1000 for one hour. Activated by paying at the Bounty Boards in town.

    Enhances player tracking for the one hour duration. Your compass can be set to point to the player with the highest bounty within 3000 blocks.


    This works the same way that the old player tracking worked, it would not require much coding.

    It would help with the current status of pvp, which is almost entirely Wildgrass Base fights. It would be nice to find a fight without setting it up in chat. It also makes having a high bounty more dangerous.

    Sheriffs shouldn't be able to purchase this.

    1k gold for 1 hour of tracking is way too strong for whoever is doing it.

    Agreed, but I like the idea. Maybe 5k?

    I agree sheriffs shouldn't get it xD and maybe 6k so 1k for 10 minutes.

    This sounds like a pretty good idea as it would lead to a consequence if you were to gather a high bounty. Currently, unless you are rogue, there is no way for bounty hunters to track you down and find you.

    Also I think that heads should be worth a little more.

    I don't think it needs to be that high, If there is a way, it should depend on what the highest bounty is. I wouldn't wanna spend 5k on some booster, and not gain profit from it, especially if I'm not active that entire hour.

    I feel 1000 gold is too cheap for 1 hour for an otherwise overpowered advantage, and yet if it was more expensive no one would buy it because the profit would not be worth it (would just lose money). Most of the time, the people with the highest bounties are robbing conductors, so they would be in towns anyways. The only other people with bounties that are actually worth going for, are at wild grass fighting sheriffs as a team (occasionally bandit wars but bounties don't go up that high in bandit wars). -1

    What if you change it up so high bounties in towns don't show?

    The tracker pointing to some noob who is robbing the conductor a bunch of times in no-pvp is part of the downside to this tool. It's not meant to be all powerful. In the past this issue was not game breaking even when you could track people 100% of the time

    So why not just reinstate the tracker? With its capabilities nerfed (perhaps from 3k blocks -> 1k blocks), it'll be both balanced and a viable addition to Wild West Pee V Pee.

    I think this may actually work because unless they aren't rogue, you are going to have to search for them yourself. With the 3k blocks, you can go to each town and pick almost all places on the map. Now, you can go to a town and not even be able to see if they are at a spot unless you start traveling there. This addition made me think this should be added.

    The highest bounty player is likely in the closest rebel base to that town anyway. I don't see a huge point in this.
