Chrissy/Regina Or Someone....Troublesome NPC's

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Connor_Graham, Feb 24, 2009.

  1. Since things are kind of on hold for the moment for swapping characters...

    I've got this problem with the local dockworkers and fisherman. They hang out in front of my house at all hours of the day, drinking and carousing. There are ale and liquor bottles floating in my pond from their activities, and I even caught one peeing over the side of the bridge in my yard, using the poor bullfrog like the soap cake in a men's urinal.

    Seriously though, these 4 NPC's are stuck right out in front of my house and I don't believe they should be that far up. I run a vendor mall from my house and trying to mark runes around the paths these NPC's walk is like walking a maze. The actual area they should be located at is 2 screens east of where they're standing now.

    Is there any way at all that these NPC's can be moved to where they belong? It would sure make UO life a hell of a lot easier on me and the people that frequent my shop. I get complaints nearly every day that recall spots are being blocked by the NPC's when they wander around. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thats not asking to much. How about freezing dere butts in one spot? :)
     
  3. That would work too. Those 4 NPC's walk nearly the entire front area of my house, and the one at the upper corner even wanders around over there on the side some.

    If you could pm me the account name (no passwords) that owns the house. I will forward it along for someone to take a look at it.

    Heh. I've got the same situation in Trinsic with the Gypsies, but I kindof like it. :lick:

    I'm suprised at how many jokes my friends and I can come up with.

    I hope they dont change stuff like that. I like the random NPCs wandering about....
    I have Paladin's that come visit my home often. It's endearing.
     
  8. Wow, lol, that was quick! Thank you!


    Um....er......uh......should I be worried? :D
     
  9. That's the problem with these though, they're not random NPC's. They're the static ones that are supposed to be at the dock area but for some reason they're 2 screens away and making a mess out of my front yard with all the empty bottles.

    I've had to take the poor frog to the vet twice already. He's been looking even more green than usual lately.....

    Yeah, I own a home in North Zento and I like the peasants that wander into my stables :) But I would be uber annoyed if there were static ones blocking runes and such.
     
  12. I'm waiting to see what's happened to those NPC's now that the server has gone down......

    *wonders if fire will be involved....*
     
  13. And they're still there....

    That is their spawning area. They are supposed to be there.

    It would make my life a bit easier if I didn't have the heavy creature/monster/camp spawns in front of my house. But that is just the way things are.

  15. They don't "spawn" there. They're static. It's not a random spawn it's a fixed one. One that doesn't quite fit the terrain since the docks are 2 screens away.

    Either way, Chrissy and Mesaana both said they would try to help me out with it, so I'll PM Chrissy and let her know they're still there and see where it goes from there.

    I can't believe you took time out of your day to fix this stupid problem.

    "Oh no.. I'm playing an online MMORPG and there some NPC's walking around in front of my fake house.... the end is near!!!!"

    I am still trying to figure out why all the Gypsies whom land in my NW Brit front yard on Siege suddenly turn into *COWARDICES* after they all land in me yard....are they all 'a'scared' of all my parrots or something ??

    As for Chesapeake...house is public...ZENTO...14k visitors...all of em npc samis and ninjas...:) they are NOT very talkative though.

    All creatures in the game have a spawn point, even static ones. Problem is no mater how many times they're killed they'll always respawn back at that spot either at the end of the respawn timer or next server up if the timer is removed.

    Only solution while keeping the NPCs is to make a patch moving the spawners, since its already been demonstrated that the code to make spawners stop working is completely broken (the NPCs killed by Berserkers were supposed to stay dead, after all).

    When I had my Chessie home on the Minoc shore...public museum building...seems even the goats cows shepherds gypsies and the occasional lizardman would tour the faciltiy...problem was that the Lizardmen just did not seem to fathom the finer arts of a cerebreal building full of reading materials regarding shard history. :) They would enter all crabby attack visitors, I would try to civilise em...but in the end...they became spined tunics on display in the museum. The occasional ettin or lizardmen just did not GET IT ! :)
     
  22. Yes! They've moved down to the docks now! If they move again I'll let you know.

    Thanks so much!
