    I just wanna put up a warning for thoose of you that consider to resize (or place new house plot with classic client).

    This happend in Luna / Drachenfeld last night.

    I used resize command to prevent others from placing on the plot. The original plot size was 11*14, but it was space for 12*14 on the same plot. Everything looked fine, house was emtied - finally got the gump to work....and the the nightmare started!

    Anyhow I tried to place, I got several strange messages. First housing could not be created in this area, then it stated it was a obstructle blocking. The last message came on every way I tried to place. Even the last size was not possible.

    I had a GM come there, he investigated the area and it should not be any hidden objects at all. He made a new case for this for seniors and escalated it. I managed to place a small plot 10*8 - was the max size I was allowed.

    After over a hr with GM and he try to solve it, it was no other solution than to wait for today and have a Senior GM look at it.

    After GM left, I thought - I will do one last try. I loaded enhanced client and patched that, so I could try there too!

    Used resize gump in classic client, and got same message it was a obstructle blocking. Logged out of Classic Client, and into Enhanced Client - and voila!!! No problem, on first try I placed 12*14 with no problems!

    So - clearly, it is a bug in classic client with house placing. This plot was so basicly out of the book, and open and clear area - it should not have been any problems....

    In this post - some players posted reasons;

    Hope you can look into this and fix it.

    This problem only occurs when the game play area within the classic client window is not in the upper left corner.
    After selecting the house type in the house placement tool menu, the ghost will be attached to the game cursor with an offset too far left / up - calculated as if the game play area would have been in the upper left corner.
    Due to this, when finally placing the house after aligning the ghost visually, the coordinates transmitted to the server are not congruent to the ghost seen in the game window.

    I was able to reproduce the issue where you were able to place a larger house when using the enhanced client and have submitted a problem report in to the system.

    The second issue related to the gameplay window position affecting the ghost image and placement cursor is a known issue that is already in the system.
