    How long does this last? This is ridiculous.

    I was camping an IDOC with a friend..of a house of a friend who quit..and it fell, of course you have the delay period before you can place again...so I was trying ot place every few minutes..eventually I got a message "You have attempted to place a house too many times recently. Try again later"

    I have had that message for 30 minutes..

    What gives? How stupid is that. I understand to protect from scripters..but uh..Im sitting here trying to place..

    How long does this last? Id page GM but we all know that would be pointless.
     
  2. The more you click on it the longer it takes.. once you get a cool down could be 5-10 mins ..but keep pissing the tool off it will be 20-30mins

    You want to hear infuriating? I had this happen to me when I was trying to resize my own house! I used the resize option... I try to place my 18x18 2 tiles farther south and it would not take.. so i try placing at its original location and still no take, then I get that message. Had to log out for a few hours, then log back in and tried it again, went through about a dozen attempts and got the message again. Had to log out for a few more hours and finally got my house to place late in the evening. Luckily it was a semi secluded location and no one stole my plot. I shudder to think if I had tried this on a castle plot. This REALLY needs to be fixed... If your resizing your house you should be able to make AS MANY attempts as you need to in the time period your allotted.
