    Since the old guild stones are a somewhat unique part of our game history, and with starting to remove the old OSI owned houses I would like again to ask for a change in house decay:
    If an IDOC is falling, currently guildstones as all or at least most other deedable house add ons are deleted with the house.

    Would be nice, if at least guild stones could be converted to a deed and so survive the house.

    Demolishing a plot with placed add ons manually shows, that this would be possible - in this case the add ons are redeeded as well and can be picked up from ground.

    Save the remaining guildstones!

    I'll go along with that. There are not many of us that have our Old Guild Stones still. I still have 2 & one Fresh never put up one in the bank that my kid got yrs ago before she quit. Memories are worth more then all the gold in UO.

    Guildstones should be dropping to the ground in deeds along with all house add-ons. If they are not then it is a bug.

    the most house add ons including guild stones and vet rewards never dropped to ground on an IDOC (I have yet to see a single one, which did, but others say they got add ons from IDOC which have not been locked deeds before).
    Or maybe explicitely locked down add ons behave different than only placed add ons, not sure.
    At least a manual demolished house returns the add ons to deed form, while the IDOC crash destroys them by my experience over several years.

    Btw.:
    I could return a guild stone to it's original guild on Drachenfels just a month ago, as those players returned to UO.

    Ive never seen a deedable item fall as a deed or as something that could be retreived. Some would stay,water troughs and example, as they were placed and needed a GM to remove.

    This has been brought to EAs and Jeremy's attention several times already. Guildstones never redeed that I have seen, all other deedable items are hit and miss at best I have seen it happen both ways. It is sad that we lose these things. You know what will make you cry even more? Watch an IDOC with deedable furniture/containers that are loaded to the gills with loot and the containers go poof with all contents! Seen it happen too many times!
