You will be able to reset the outpost after you beat the game
Great news. Haven't finished the game yet, but I've cleared the first island and it was very dull getting around with no pirates about. Used to walk everywhere but ended up fast traveling most of the time once the outposts were done.
Glad to hear that they are listening to the community and adding things everyone has asked for. True there is still more to be done and fixed but it seems like they are slowly getting everything perfect for this game.
