    Something strange is going on with my vendor that I haven't seen before. Is this normal and I just noticing it for the first time? Is this some kind of Bug? Should I be concerned?

    I dont see what your issue is. Everthing there looks normal? (for KR that is)

    Is your issue that the vendor isn't at full health? If so then I'm not sure if I've come across that before.

    From the way you have KR set up it doesn't seem like your question would have to do with KRs display methods.

    The issue is with the health bar. My vendors is losing health! Yikes!

    I'm not sure if this is UOKR related or not. Maybe it's a timer. It's all good so long as he doesn't drop dead or that there is some bug out there where a player can cause a vendor to die and loot it dry!
     
  6. No need to worry. It won't drop dead on ya, and it's the same in 2d as it is in KR. I had a vendor do the same thing and I had it up for months with no problems.

    Well my guess was either that you were new and didn't know about that bug, or you were simply showing off your fancy schmancy Luna vendor. :)

    I too had that bug in a vendor and was scared. It appears to be so random that you might not see it even as a long time vet. Watching my vendor with valuable stuff on him slowly going red-line was too weird for me. I replaced that hard working NPC with another who stayed healthy as usual.

    Enjoy! :danceb: (have always wanted to use this smilie)

    I've seen a LOT of vendors with dropping Health Bars, and I play in 2D, it seems to be tied to the amount of gold they have on them. Apparently there is a critical limit below which the vendor starts counting down the time until it's out of gold and winds up in the Moving Crate of the house it's in. I tested that theory with one vendor (someone else's) who was selling something expensive I wanted to buy. Before I bought the item, the vendor was nearly red-lined, but afterward it was back to full Health.

    Not *certain* that's what's going on, but try giving the vendor more gold and see what happens. It couldn't hurt. :)

    Be well - Pax

    this "bug" your seeing is because the vendors have 0 mana/life regen. Its usually caused when you put something on the vendor such as a bloodwood suit for example where it increases the HP of the vendors. When you take said items off of the vendors paperdoll, it should go back to normal or so.

    This was addressed in a 5 on friday a while back and im not gunna bother to go find it.

    If you are asking is it weird for the vendor to teleport outside the house when you access it, that would be no. This happens if you are accessing your vendor from outside the house and your vendor is too far away from you or on a higher floor than ground level. It will teleport back into position after no changes have been done for two minutes.
