Adding V-Matrix Safeguards
Disassembly Mode has been a great help in reducing the burden on players when disassembling nodes, but it is missing some important safeguards.
Currently, if the player has a node already selected it is not automatically deselected when entering Disassembly Mode. This is potentially dangerous for players as they must always remain vigilant in deselecting nodes before using this feature. If for example, a player has just enhanced a node and then decides to enter Disassembly Mode, the node they had just worked on would still be selected and the player might end up destroying something they had just worked on.
You can see this happening below:
Here are a few suggestions for an improved V-Matix.
- When entering Disassembly Mode, the currently selected node(s) will be automatically deselected.
- When in disassembly mode, the selected nodes should turn red. The current white/blue outline does not have good visibility.
- When a leveled node is chosen for disassembly a warning should popup either immediately or when the player goes confirm. This window should probably appear independently for each leveled node selected.
- Node locking: A lock icon would appear in the Selected Nodes dialogue box. Clicking on it would either lock or unlock the node. This lock feature would prevent the node from being used as either material for upgrading nodes or from being disassembled. I'm unsure if a node should be allowed to be enhanced while locked so long as the materials aren't locked themselves, however, I can see there could be a reason not to. This feature could also go a step further by requiring a PIN/Password to unlock nodes.
I believe with these safeguards in place, most instances of accidental disassembly can be avoided.
Aside from the things I mentioned, the only thing left would be for Nexon to develop the tools necessary to recover lost nodes in case the safeguard I have proposed fail or are circumvented. My understanding is that these tools don't currently exist
despite 5th Job being introduced nearly a year and a half ago.
