    Gold metal boxes, and Some metal chests facing south will not dye to dye them you need to turn them to face east.

    Does this not strike you as something you're not supposed to have?
    Do you expect the Devs to "fix" this issue for you then?

    I don't expect the Devs to fix this issue I'm perfectly capable of using the housing tool to turn them to dye them, and turn them back if I choose to.
    The gold metal boxes I have are from idocs that I have done when a players house fell back when you could get the boxes.

    Please keep in mind, that the strong boxes we get from fishing are the same type of item. When they fix the newly added fishing strongboxes, the old gold boxes will be fixed aswell.

    Thanks for the clarification. I was curious why i still couldn't dye the large chests but could now dye the strong boxes. My strong boxes were all facing east and the large chests were facing south. That is why i didn't get the error message in the first place.

    I don't think these are boxes from moving crates. As far as you know you can't get boxes from moving crates. The 25 item gold boxes are the old 'co owner' boxes from before AoS.

    Your right the 25 item gold boxes are old co owner boxes before AoS.
    I think there also was a 125 item gold box that spawned as a server up rare long time ago.
    When they first added in customized housing, and moving crates with the 125 item gold boxes if you left things in the moving crate demolished or a house fell you got the 125 item gold boxes. Now you can't demolish a house with things in a moving crate, and now if your house falls with items in the moving crate the items fall to the ground.

    Not true, I've gotten several of the gold boxes from IDOCs in the past few weeks. One of the houses was public so I KNOW that the gold box could have only come from the moving crate.

    You know what these chests are? Back in the day, Co-Owners used to be able to place their very own strong boxes which could only hold 25 items. When that was done away with, these strongboxes turned into the gold chests that only hold 25 items. There's nothing illegal about them.

    In that case, the co-owner boxes were most likely sitting in the moving crate. The gold moving crate boxes aren't limited to 25 items like the co-owner boxes are so it doesn't really make sense they are dropping.

    What Im talking about was true at that time, but that doesnt mean what your saying isnt true.The gold boxes could be back when the houses fall, but then again the house owners could of had the gold boxes customized where the boxes went into the moving crate, and they never took them out. I havent been able to do idocs like I use to I only take the time to do the ones around where my places are, and all I've gotten out of the moving crate was bags,wooden boxes, and loose items.
