    Things are changing and I was hoping someone knows this. A house falls and it looks like a nice spot. I have a house now. I place a new one... How long do I have current have to move outta my old place before it drops?

    @Capt. Lucky At this point I wouldnt ever trust UO when you are trying to move a house. Have your stuff boxed, have 5 packies and house teles ready to move in under 30 minutes. Do not trust the system.

    This was fully tested on TC 1 for over a month and all known issues were resolved prior to publishing on Origin.






    Oh, Wait! No it wasn't. Never mind.

    And yet things still manage to be broken/buggy once a publish goes live to the rest of the shards.

    There are still a ton of bug fixes that I haven't seen anyone mention testing/verifying that they work which worries me....this publish had NOTHING to do with IDOCS yet everyone seems to have horse blinders on.

    As far as housing..I placed a new house on Origin Friday morning at 10:20 AM Central. It is currently Somewhat worn.

    Edited to clarify...I HAD a house and placed a new one which condemned my first one.

    personally i wouldnt move until at least a few weeks after the publish so any bugs might be revealed by unfortunate players. if it does appear stable, i would move as fast as possible. in years past, i was very casual with moving taking about 3 days. i wouldnt do that anymore. next time i move i will be moving in the immediate hours following the condemnation of the first house.

    I second what Scribbles says. It "should" be 5 days but do it ASAP. Grab some house tele tiles and a few pack horses and off you go. Don't forget to check moving crate also.

    Right now I've been hearing that all the houses that are falling right now fall exactly 4 hours after they go into IDOC status.

    I am sitting at one right now on Origin that has been in IDOC status for over 7 hours.

    I think with the new publish, things are going to be very different :)

    Edited to update...I posted this at 6:38 my time..it's now 11:24 and the house is still standing...ZzzZzzzz

    So I hope other people are testing the OTHER bug fixes PLEASE! :)

    Te IDOC That I was sitting at fell around 5:30ish in the morning....from the way this one looks that I am at now..it could be the same time.

    Currently it has roughly 2 hours before the first 5 hour fall time.

    My own house is now Greatly Worn, so should fall sometime tomorrow, putting it at exactly 5 days from Like New to Collapse.

    There have been instances of houses falling before the 5 days so it's always better to be safe then sorry.

    On a side note, I was at 2 IDOCS yesterday...YES I finally got to be at a few! But alas no grubbers spawned. Now, granted there was very little inside the house...so my question would be, will grubbers spawn at EVERY IDOC or just the ones that have *good* items in them.
