    I'm so annoyed by this I'm beyond words. But I might be able to find a few, lol. NONE of the new stuff shows up in vendor search! Much of the old stuff doesn't show up in search. No marble bars, crystal skulls, forged artwork, nothing! What should have been one of the greatest features ever has turned to crap. If I want a Blackthorn bunny I can find it on an internet UO search engine (Maybe hire *that* guy) but our dev team can't seem to pull it off. Some internet web site will show me a kitten or puppy if I want to buy one. Can I get this in game? Nooooo! If you don't have a Luna vendor the search in UO is our life's blood. I kept thinking this is such a great feature it wouldn't get forgotten and ignored. I was wrong. Come on guys, pull it together and do this right. It's important. Thank you.

    *begins to write optimistic comment, then looks at the huge pile of unfinished/broken/useless patches that have been released over the years and never fixed* *deletes optimistic message and posts this instead*

    Thank you for the report. The database needs to be flushed with the latest batch of text IDs, after the flush, those items will populate in your search results.

    I assume this will be done on all shards or is it a global database?

    It will add all the new text IDs globally.

    Thank you Kyronix, even though the *request* to fix it was less then stellar, you always get the job done when you're able.

    Honey and vinegar people...just sayin.
    :heart: the vendor search, glad it's an easy fix :)

    This is NOT the first time I've asked about it. The first several requests were nicer, lol. And it doesn't explain all the old stuff that doesn't show up. An example would be kitten, puppy, and I can't think of them at the moment but there are many :)

    Just to add I was harsh and I apologize. But I brought this up when the signs and trader quests books came in. I've brought it up before that also and no one seemed to care. I see stuff in Luna selling for 4 times what I ask on my "out of town" vendors and it gets pretty frustrating. But if we can get this issue resolved permanently I'm a happy camper. I'd like to make a living too :) I'm leaving Kyronix's head on spikes out front till this gets resolved :p

    Well when it was working it was working great. Everything I could think of was showing up. Unfortunately it's timing out now with the "too vague" message.
