    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I logged on and the 3 vendors that I had in my Magincia house had fallen. Each was set to re-new, was free, and had over 100 mill on them for a total of 400 (100, 100, 200)...

    When I went to reclaim the vendor inventory, only 2 of them showed up, so I attempted to reclaim the 2 (while thinking where is the 3rd). When I reclaimed them, the journal said 200 mill deposited in your bank 7 items in your pack, 100 mill deposited in your bank 5 items in pack.

    I click on house tool, only 200 mill in the bank.... so re-cap. I had 3 vendors fall, was only able to reclaim 2 vendor inventories, and only got 1 of the vendors money.....

    And yes I checked bank and emptied it out, re-logged, etc.. 200 mill is *poof* in space!

    BE CAREFUL with your vendors!! (this took place on Atlantic!)

    I'm waiting on GM, will update you all if I find anything.

    Is this in New Magincia, or is this a house that was placed on the beach?

    Maybe it's the new way of fixing the screwed up economy.

    so, I guess you didn't see if this bug was repeatable?

    Might not be Magincia specific. I've never heard of anyone trying to stuff that many gold checks into their bank box at the same time. Might have just overflowed and went *poof*. Someone with some time should try it on test center.

    No, but I wish....
    Hmm a while back there was some issue with vendors just "falling" and people could not access the money...were they placed with rental contracts or employment contracts?

    Ok.

    Then in what way does it fall in the bank? I guess it can´t be 600 Mil checks right?

    Yeah the game can drop 100s of items into your bank box.

    The trick is that if the game drops items that exceed your bank box limit, then you can't place anymore items in your bank box until you start emptying it out.

    If your bank box limit is 150 items and the game drops a bunch of things that boost it to 200, you have to withdraw 51 items if you want to place anything in it.

    Thanks for replies, guys.

    So, If someone was packing storage to go inactive for a while, toons full, banks full, then just put all the money in a vendor, collect, money goes in bank too - Instant extra storage?

    i just logged into my zento vendor house on atlantic and one of my 3 vendors mysteriously had fallen. was set to renew. had 10m gold on her. got it all back from house sign, but WTF??? the other 2 vendors are still there. this is irritating at best, just glad i didn't lose gold like the OP. hope you get it back somehow!
    ps - vendor was there as of about 9am this morning, but gone now.

    i am a programmer and here is my guess.

    the first vender reclaim worked as normal and it overstuffed your bank box.

    if you had removed from bank box enough to get it down to size then the next reclaim would work. instead you tried to reclaim immediatly and thus your bank being already overstuffed then it rejected the new deposit.
