    After many hours on several chests - i finaly found a chest - cant dig it up because im standing on top of it ! so i move 1 step in each direction and i get you stop digging because you cannot see the correct location! i agree many ppl left T hunting - mainly because you never get good items ! so now we got to contend with a spawn of up to 8 guardians ! ok - but im not going to wander up and down getting cramp in my fingers clicking on random places on the off chance of getting lucky! with 120 magic, music,peace prov, 100 lp cartog. i cannot have mining . this could finaly make me give up UO ! not happy!

    Try from two tiles away in all directions around it, maybe that will work. If not, you could always send in a bug report so they may be able to fix it in the future. Good luck!

  3. I've got one chest that gives me the exact same message. I have tried from every angle, from every tile that is still close enough to still allow me to dig and it keeps telling me that it stops digging because I can't see the correct location.

    The best I can say is the Developers are aware of these issues, and supposedly if you wait 30 days the location will reset.

    (19) level 6 maps attempted:

    (10) maps worked without a hitch:
    They were in Luna/Malas.

    (9) maps did not work:
    One was in Luna just below the city in the edge of the abyss/darkness.
    Four were in the water in northern Yew (all different spots).
    One was in Compassion desert (got the same message you guys did).
    One was in the middle of the ocean, west of Brit.
    One was in Yew, north of the northern sheep pen, under a large tower.
    One was in Yew four screens east of the northern sheep pen (same message).

    These were all level 6 maps.

    I have GM mining to widen my success rate on finding the locations.

    These were all brand new maps I just received since the publish.

    It seems fairly obvious that maps spawning since the publish are the ones that are messed up. Everyone I've talked to has not had the same problems I've been having in Trammel.

    A friend of mine surmised: "I *guarantee* that those maps are borked because it's generating Malas locations on a Brit Trammel Map set. Some dev cut and pasted too much code without modifying it appropriately".

    **Edited to update numbers**

    Out of the 20 or so I've done so far, haven't had a problem finding them. All Tram and new from the Hag Quest.

    Are those level 6 maps?
     
  8. I can think of no reason the level of the map would affect not being able to dig up the chest. I would guess it's caused by the randomness of the maps and rough terrain, and that right now more level 6 maps are being hunted. But, what are you thinking or rather, how do you see the chest level causing a problem?

    Nope, 3's mostly. Will be moving onto 4's tonight. As the old man said, I don't think level has anything to do with it as it's all randomized.

    Dismount

    I can wander around digging while mounted and find the chest OK. A few of the chests could not be dug up until I dismounted. BTW I am doing old maps.

    Question: What Tokuno creatures give maps? I tried a few Yamadons, Tsukis, Lady of the Snow, Fan Dancers. Nothing. Are those the wrong monsters, or should I just keep on camping them for longer?

    The maps have been fine since the latest update Old Man.

    I've only gotten 1 bad map out of the 30+ I've done since the latest update, and that one was underneath the stable just west of Brit.

    I haven't kept track of how many T maps I have done, but I have a a bag of almost 15 bad maps now. They include:
    2 that are under a house.
    3 that are in water with no land mass in sight
    4 that are in water that might be possible to get to with a boat.
    2 that give the message I am standing on top of the chest and 1-3 tiles away I cant see it.(100mining)
    4 that are in impossible spots like in the middle of mountains, out in the black void of malas and so on.

    The most fun I had was the level 6 that I dug up in the Jhelom bull pen. I made some tamers very unhappy when I spawned 3 balrons and 2 AWs.
