Happy for the discourse around this change. The one thing to keep in mind throughout the discussions is that the only reason for pull/retrieval times existing at all is for anti-griefing. It's far from bulletproof but early on in Foxhole's pre-alpha development we found through testing that it eliminated a huge percentage of griefing and players taking more items than they need. Not a lot of massively multiplayer games have open public sharing of items like Foxhole does and this is one of the things that helped make it work in the first place.
I'm not saying there can't be a better solution but just want to clarify that this is the main reason for it's existence in the game today. It's not there for realism or because we're intentionally trying to make things harder for anyone.
Even if a better solution were to present itself, it should be implemented more intentionally and not through a piece of content like the BMS Mineseeker.
