I see a facility with a blast door at the entrance, I break the lock and go through. Now what?

Will that freshly broken lock be open to me still, if I turned around (after going through the door), or do I have to break the lock again?

if it remains unbroken, is it always unbroken to me? Is it only unbroken to me, or is broken to everyone?

If I'm the facility owner, do I have to downgrade and then rebuild it to secure it again?

Just curious.

Thank you.

After a door has been successfully hacked, it is set to open and can be moved through. However, there is a 50% chance that the owner of the entity will receive a warning that one of their doors has been hacked.

That doesn't explain if the door needs to be replaced to be locked again... although if someone hacks your door you might want to put a better one in anyway.

I'm kind of curious to know the answer to the second half of this question.

Open means open, lock it again to re-seal it, no need to replace the door (at least that's how I interpret it).

How long (timer 30 mins?) does it take to hack a lock?

the same time for all door grades?

And me thinks a warning should be issued Only when you fail to hack a lock..

otherwise you get nasty situations where before you even know if you hacked a door or not the owner gets a (too damn) convenient message sent to their inbox -_- image if the owner is in the next room -_-

50% is too random (unpredictable) & do i get a message the owner has been warned, if i'm doing the hacking?

This is a good opportunity for a droid to fill the role of warning you if someone unauthorized is on your ship OR trying to hack your door open, unless its disabled with a restraining bolt first -_-

It took me 6 hours to hack one of my own blast doors. I'm not sure if the time is static, or bonuses are given for certain skills.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I got 30 xp for successfully breaking the lock. I think I may have also come across a bug, where I was able to break a lock on an unlocked door.

It was 6 hours per attempt on a blast door. i'm not sure if the times vary for regular and reinforced.

Also, I didn't lose any ELBs per attempt.

I was just thinking aloud don't get so upset so easily..

But the Other Forum is 'LOCKED' -_-

Is it going to be 'unlocked' now?

It's not locked, you are probably just banned from there for... you know... making bad suggestions?

Nah more like admin is still butt hurt for some reason & takes shit very personally.

No point repeatedly telling me to post in section X if i can't in the first place -_-

And pretending 'you' don't know why is also, extremely, wack.

There is equally little point in continually posting your thoughts in a section not intended for it, particularly if you ever want to be unbanned.

Hans, if you want to raise a query on your ban. Make a support ticket. Complaining on the forums isn't the best way to go.
