Glitched spinning wheel

Discussion in 'UO Homes and Castles' started by Beauregardchick, Aug 15, 2009.

  1. so i was spinning wool and cotton i had gotten the other day and one of my spinning wheels glitched out to where it wont stop spinning. i like it but its not useable now, i would realy like to know how to get rid of it because i tried axing it and it said "currently in use" well then i paged a gm and he couldnt even remove it *which i was furious at i mean comeon they should beable to do that* but i was just posting here as an last resort kinda, i was told customizing the house would fix it but i have ALOT of items that would needed to be redeeded and then there would be a bunch of items in the moving crate. anyway any answers are gladly welcomed thank yall so much =D and if anyone wants i can post pics of my house.

    Try turning or raising it with a dec tool. Thats the only suggestion I have (other that customizing your house if you can do that).

    hmm, not a bad idea guys

    Beauregardchick, maybe slap goza mats under it, raise them up, put another just like it on the mats, lower it down into the other one, and that one should be working while the other one just looks pretty spinning
     
  6. would be a great item at a small stream.
     
  7. i tried to redo the foundation and didnt work, and i was spinning about 400 wool and i guess it just glitched cause i didnt stop spinning after i used it. im upset cause i cant use both now and im scared cause i dont want to do it to both wheels. its cute as deco but just cant use it. im gussing i will have to try customization later. *sigh*
     
  8. its kinda growing on me little by little.

    I've had a spinning, spinning wheel in my keep for just over three years now ... i liked it though, so i just placed another one next to it to use ;-)

    been afraid to ever axe or attempt to move it though, in case it stopped spinning.
     
  12. well i decided to customize to try and remove it but now i cannot custoimize it and ive taken down just about everything thats not locked down...i have no clue what to do *sighs*

    Ahh a new padlock eh? although how to create such a padlock is still unknown I may have to play with that sometime although my other padlock is much easier =)
     
  14. so im guessing there is no way i will beable to remove the spinning wheel since 4 pages to gms havent done anything, 1st gm said he couldnt do anything bout it then other 3 sent me to the same webpage about bugs and i filled in the form and sent it..nothing back.

    You would think they'd be able to remove it tho since they can do everything els in the game but noo one little spinning wheel defeats them.. *sigh* sorry i didnt mean to sound mean if i did but its just really upset me cause i love to customize my house and do differnt things but i cannot now cause of it.
     
  15. Update!!! alright guys so finaly i decided to give one last page and Guess what...A GM REMOVED IT YAY *throws confetti* basicly the convo went like so...gm "i can destroy the item if you like but you will not get it back" myself "okay i asked you to destroy it a week ago and you said you couldnt but yes Destroy it please i dont want it"
    Gm "*silence for a little bit* Okay show me where it is please"

    Same gm too btw that told me he couldnt remove it a week ago...wonder what changed his mind?

    So now the question is...how can you bug one to run active all the time if you want it for deco? Continuous use until it "bugs" to run all the time?

    Or was there a series of events or steps that you can trace back to in order to get it bugged?
     
  17. ive only had it happen twice while playing uo but this last time all i did was have alot of wool and was going back and forth between two spinning wheels like right after it was done i'd use it again, the last time i did this i had a non customizeable house so it didnt really bother me but that was years ago. *lol side note..iam not using my spinning wheel anymore ima go to a tailor shop* *laughs*

    I don't know how its done, but if I was to guess it was during a server save period. It's just a guess! I'd probably try spinning right before server down and then see if when the shard saved it glitched my wheel.

    Remember when there used to be like 3-5 doors on often-used NPC shops? It was always my suspicion that when the shard when down and a door was open, it would come back up, see the door was missing and replace it...I don't know if that's valid at all, but I think weird things can happen when the shards go down...

    *makes spooky noise oooh EEE oooh*

    I remember them removing tons of doors in fel because they had 10-15 doors there.
