Are homes safe from orc/brigand/gyspy spawns now?

    I haven't played since January and at that time, items in my castle were disappearing due to orc spawns. Has this problem been fixed? Thank you in advance.

    I kind of miss searching for the gypsy camps to get the moonstone jewelery. That was a pretty addicting/fun idea. A friend and I would go out at least once a week and raid the camps. Spawn rates could be somewhat obnoxious in some areas though like my alliances player run town but overall I enjoyed it. I hope they'll fix the issue soon and bring it back.

    that was their fix? to stop them from spawning instead of making it so they don't delete locked down containers?

    Yep, expect them to be turned back on shortly after they fix the bug with blessed items in containers being stolen with the container. (which they addressed by disabling the ability to steal anything flagged as a container, which for some reason includes bags of sending)

    Should know by now, this is how the UO dev team fixes most bugs, simply turn off the entire feature and call it good.

    Pfft on your moonstones... are you going to compensate me for the spawns rippping up my carpets or goza's?? the 3 Rare chests??? The odd piece of furnature that is sooo messed up that I cant even axe it to get the deed back?? hmmm??

    No Sugar they turned it off when it started to look like muteny around here when rares and things started to poof like carzy.....

    I wouldnt doubt they are looking into it, but the eta of the spawns returning is not known.

    I want them to have the gms go see the bits of stuff players cant redeed and fix the problem or replace it. that happening is the same odds as me winning the mega loto over 300 mill!
