A small favor to the Dev Team

Discussion in 'UHall' started by The Home Guild, Apr 8, 2009.

  1. It's been around for sometime but if someone designs thier home with block steps it causes the 5 tile/space rule to be null and void.It becomes 6 tile rule.
    I'm sure it wasn't intended to do so and probably noone has mentioned it cause they don't know any better.

    In the future can you please fix this "bug" 6 space rule?
    Thanks in advance.

    This is not a bug, there are five tiles in front of one house and one tile behind the other making 6 tiles. There is nothing wrong with the placement.

    No you're wrong and he's right.
    In the front it should be 5 tiles but with certain stairs it becomes 6.
    My guild had access to a house like this when no one could place stuff we changed the stairs and got a castle down.
     
  4. Yes,i can recall many times a certain guild used this tactic to block castle/keep spots from going.
    I had to recently pay my neighbor to change his steps untill i replotted and then he changed them back.
     
  5. I place homes,i sell homes,i do idocs and have been for many years.
    I don't make stuff up just to make a thread.
    I challenge you to goto test center,place a home make block steps then use another acct or a friend and have him try and place in front of you.It will only place at 6 tiles not 5.
    It's a small problem but a bug indeed.

    ps.There is 5 space rule front and back not 5 in front and 1 in back,sir.
