Disable collision in docking areas

As the title says. One or two afk boats can cause a complete block of a docking area, making you unable to leave it.

If we are going to use the normal server model (with no choice of channels), such a feature needs to be implemented to make docks even remotely usable.... At least in Velia.

This reminds me of the kiddies that blocked bridges in ArcheAge.

It doesn't just block entering and leaving, but also locks summoned boats in place. If there are a bunch of boats already there, don't even think about getting yours out. At that point, all you can do is spin in circles. I actually got stuck on my boat a few times when this happened. I had to hop channels to get out, but ended up stuck away from my group due to the channel timer.

What if a player instead could mark a boat afk boat which is in the way and send it to the npc, i love seeing boats at the dock and this way you can remove afk boats that is in the way yourself.

Excellent idea! Though this should only be usable within the docking area, not outside of it. 

Would be a humongous **** move if someone sent a boat back to the dock at a random island because its owner was gathering on it.

Used to kill so many cats and asians in AA by blocking them in and bombarding them.

Agreed. It's nearly impossible to take off at the docks in Velia on KR. There's a ridiculous amount of boats on every channel.

In favor of this one! (finally an idea that is actually tackling a real problem) 

Found out just last week that i cannot leave port with my rowboat, because of all the boats already spawned. This is definately something that needs to be considered! Maybe a timer for 30 seconds in which the boat can pass trough other boats. This gives you 30 seconds to hop in your boat and leave port, enough time to get past the AFK blockade

As someone who comes from a fishing/seafaring family background, I can tell you what happens to boats left unattended in port areas. They are IMPOUNDED. That's right, they take your boat and charge you (forgive the pun, but it is intended) a boatload of a fine!

So, I suggest that AFK boats have a time on them. % minutes, and the boat is impounded and the player has to pay a VERY heavy fine to use it again. 
If you want to sit there and let your AFK boat block others, thereby preventing other players from enjoying gameplay, then you need to PAY the game...

Good idea, but again, only in docking areas :)
