    Were we not supposed to customize? How would one know if they don't say so on the splash screen?? I customized a house the last two days and I had no problem.

    That's because most of the problems have been fixed. The only problem that remains as far as I can tell is house teleporters/doors from the finished design becoming "stuck" or visible in custo mode. The last time somebody asked this there was a report that on Siege someone had lost items (they had all unlocked and certain items had been kicked to under the sign) but that's the only thing I saw. The unlocking bug was a result of the devs fixing a problem where locked down items did not "disappear" when in customization mode, which caused exceptional difficulty customizing for those who had a lot of items in their finished design. However, that bug has been reported as fixed, and I've successfully customized on Atlantic and Lake Austin without losing anything.

    The system still seems pretty buggy to me....

    I have not experienced any items being released or kicked out of the house, however as Elizabeth points hout it can be difficult to manage the doors and teleporters if you are trying to move them without clearing the plot. I have also noticed that it seems to have a hard time being consistent with its treatment of like items. For instance, I did a customize with 5 fountains of life in my house. All had been turned with the deco tool, were lined up side by side, all with bandages inside... after customize mode, 4 of them returned to their original location, the last one remained a barrel in the moving crate. I also had roughly 11 maniquins on the house (all dressed)... 4 of them disappeared when I entered custom mode, the other 7 were still standing while in custom mode. After committing, the 7 that had remained standing were still in place... the remaining 4 were in the house sign as deeds.

    Considering that the Dev Team's been either dealing with the Atlantic Revert mess - or on Holiday since the problem arose - I don't think it's been fixed yet.

    I built a new house today but had many problems with doors that couldnt be deleted or suddenly disappeared.

    Didn't have item in the house though.

    If you scroll down a bit on the splash screen it does say "House add on issue" with a description under that heading. I dont know when it was posted there but has been there for at least 5 days.

    "It is now safe to enter house customization mode."

    http://uo.com/article/Fixes-Publish-80

    There's not been another post since that saying it broken again.


    >>>> i used that same information. DONT. i customized my house on siege and alot of my items dropped outside my house under the sign!

    i would advise unless there is a further confirmation NOT to customize.

    Welcome back UO Dev Team, hope you had a wonderful Holiday with your familie and I wish you a Happy New Year, buth fot you and for UO.

    You sure deserved a break, fixing bugs use to activate more bugs and sometimes it can get crazy. I hope you are filled with new energy to fight this nasty bugs and get the houses to act nicely and don't forget the ghost vendors we have in New Magincia on Siege, they refuse to leave the house spot, even when old house is gone and a new house spot is placed. The GM's even moved them once, placed them a little away from the spot. Next day, they was back ghosting the house.

    So good to have you back :grouphug:
