    I have a couple of questions concerning the increasing number of water troughs being left across the lands.

    It would appear that after the housing changes concerning water barrels etc that now, when a Idoc house falls, the water troughs become a permanent feature of the landscape.

    It used to be that after the fall you could use an axe on them and they would redeed, this no longer works. It seems that they do not decay either.

    So, 2 questions.

    1. Are the devs aware of this and working on a solution?.
    2. Do the troughs interfere with the placement of a new house?. If they do this could soon be a problem, the troughs are everywhere.

    I agree...I used to axe them whenever I came across them but can't anymore...another thing cluttering up the lands is the puddle of bubbling stew from cauldrons.

    They'll probably want us to go around and make note of the coordinates, and then come back to Uhall and post them. So they can thank us all for our hard work, and assure us that they'll be deleted, but then never delete them ala DSFASFA....thanks again for that huge oversight Jeremy.

    When you try to place on a water trough they disappear. Even just testing placement without hitting ok, will get rid of them.

    That and the statues.

    It's odd, there is a spot I want to place a house, there was house there a week ago, but since it dropped, I get a message that this area cannot be placed in. I know it's a post AoS house too since it was custom. Did the houseing locations get screwed with lately? I couldn't even drop a 7x7 in a place where there previously stood at least a 10x13...la

    The water troughs and the parrots as well as many other items do delete when you try to place over them or they move to the corner under the house sign.... either way that will get rid of them.....

    Rico... as for the statues... if they are the ones that were acquired per the age old bug... that put them into a crate and also made them so you could not ever pick them up.... the only way to get those removed is to page a GM.... however..... and unfortunately I have found that this method is so so for removal..... after 3 months and countless pages I either finally worded my request successfully enough to get a GM response.... or the GM felt sorry for me... either way he did come remove the statue... (At which point my char got down on his knees and gave praise to the Gods)....

    I believe I mentioned in my request that the item in question was a blight on the land and was stuck there do to an "exploit" and needed to be removed..... as it did not belong where it was and was mucking up the lands.... And could they please remove this blight... so I could place my house... I can't recall exactly what I said but it was eventually and finally removed....

    Good luck....

    Strange - I came across a half of a trough hanging in the air thursday, and was able to axe it normally (course, being broken, I didn't get a deed from it).
