Possible Vet Reward Bug

Discussion in 'UO Homes and Castles' started by Flora Green, Aug 31, 2008.

    Today I tried to re-deed my hanging skeleton and it wouldn't allow me. The message said I could only re-deed if I was the house owner or placed it. That was with a character on the owner's account. Fine. I logged in the house owner and received the same message. Next I decided to place walls over it to move it to the moving crate. That also didn't work. Finally I cleared the design back to the dirt foundation. Only then could I re-deed the skeleton. I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this before I submit a bug report. I only use the skeletons once a year, but don't recall that happening before.

    not skeleton, but had some trouble with a shield.. only the character that had placed it could re-deed it, and I've never had that happen before, or if it's been like that all along I've never noticed

    Well I'll submit it tonight if I get time. The steps I outlined above are essentially what I did so it won't be a problem remembering. Much easier than trying to report the plant bugs which are all over the place.

    Thanks. :)
     
  5. I've recived problems with my 18x18 and castle but not with vet rewards but with Xmas reefs... and I actually got a GM to talk (Gasp) and they said that they couldn't remove them since they were to heavy :| so there is a problem just don't know how to fix it :|
    I too a bit back submitted one,

    Found this post and I too am having same problem...am now 13 in queue.
    Hopefully a GM will show, and I will still submit a bug report.

    Thank you to GM Thowe for peeling that nasty skeleton from my
    wall. Suggested I use bleach next time. :):):)

    I have a skelton deed that wont go away either. iirc I used an account old enough to place it as the house owner then xfered the house back to the younger account. I think this is security to prevent folks from doing this. It seems like a real hassle. It would be nice if deedable rewards could be used by any age account. You just have to be the right age to obtain one (free).

    I still have that skeleton in my house. I just really hate bothering with GM's. At Christmas it was hidden by the holiday trees and when the fix goes in to allow us to display them year round, I'll put them back up and hide it again. Currently I have plants around it. :) Never had a problem with banners though.

    The GM that helped me and i had a discussion about it. He said if it keeps happening to send feedback.

    So far, I can't figure out why this one deed does it all the time.

    This is something, with what only a GM can help (and they do) if it happens. Had this two times (not sure, if this has to do with changes of the house owner while the skeleton was on the wall).

    I was the original house owner and that char placed the skeleton
    deed. If it weren't for the fact I was moving I would have left it there.
    But, it does seem there is a problem with these deeds. I did send in
    a bug report.
    Fortunately , I tend to stay in a place for a few years so when I place
    it again, the skeleton will stay stuck to the wall for quite some time.:D

    i've had similar problem with different deedable items but not a skeleton deed. when i dont use the circle of transparency it seems to correct the issue.

    Twice I couldn't move a hanging skele and twice a GM came by, got me to log in on house owner, and got it down for me....pretty annoying but what can you do?

    I've decided mine was such a dedicated employee of the shop, he died there. Out of respect, I won't move his skeleton. (Beats waiting in line for a GM to show). :)

    I'm trying to recall how I moved mine...... I think I built around it trying to force it into the moving crate but that didn't work it stayed on the wall but then I remembered that re-naming the house "refreshes" it..... and I think that did the trick ...... But I had to be on the house owner.... Also might try changing the foundation..... if that doesn't work...or you can't (ie if it's not a custom home) try renaming the house.... I think that works sometimes...
