    could be wrong, but are you certain they were actually there? I see ghost houses sometimes when I've been on test building and trying designs and then go to my home shard without shutting down the client..... sent me into a frenzy one day cause I thought someone got one of my accounts and the first thing they chose to do was destroy my house design :D

    I found them on Atlantic, in Malas. Approximate co-ords are 6Nx33E.

    I am goin to check again about the ghosting.

    Devils own nailed it. I went back and it still looked like 3 houses together. Shut down the client and re-logged. They are back to normal. For a bit, I was excited lol.

    Lol, ya I have had that happen. Kept seeing a partial 18x18 in the water just off shore by one of my houses. I paged a GM to see if it was legit or some kind of exploit. The GM actually showed, I greeted them and thanked them for showing up. The GM then threatened to ban me unless I told them what 3rd party program I was running to be able to see them. I insisted that they just showed up on my boat next to me and thats when I greeted them. Then then said they could see no house, and wanted to know what kind of exploit I was using to place a house on water and hide it from GMs. I had to explain several times that I was the one who paged with that exact question, that I was not using any 3rd party program, and that They (the GM) is the one who showed visible. I then got a little snippy and recomended they learn how to use their invis function before throwing around accusations, and also that they read the page before showing up and accusing the person that paged of running an exploit when I explained everything in the page itself. Turned out later on I figured out it was a cache problem and nothing client side... there was no house there at all, it was just a graphics glitch. Talk about lowering your faith in Customer Service/Support when you page on a problem... and not only can they not solve the problem or tell you whats going on... but they then accuse you of exploiting because of their own incompetence in running their software, and their own lack of game mechanics. (Sorry, years later and Im still a little aggravated about that experience)

    it's some kind of bleed-through when you go to the same co-ordinates on 2 facets. If I don't log all the way out when switching chars and then go to Justice in Ilsh I see my house and all my neighbours, since it's the same co-ords as my house in Tram, Yew.
    Lags me like hell too!

    Actually, this was a part of my neighbors house, on GL. The part that wasn't really there, as I was on Atl at the time. They just happened to line up perfectly I guess. Its there every time I look, heheh. And I drool at the mirage every time. Oh what Id give for like a 36x18 or something crazy like that.
