Potions not working on plants

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Phineas le Monge, Aug 5, 2010.

  1. I logged in to care for my plants, and I can water them, but cannot apply any potions. Some of my plants are infested and will need care ASAP!

    I went in and checked my Gardener who tended plants yesterday morning. The keg in her pack still said Greater poison. I then filled a bottle from it and it changed to deadly poison. The bottle from it, labeled Greater Poison, went back into the keg fine. The next bottle came out deadly poison.

    I tried tending an orange petal plant with the deadly poison keg. The plant took two doses as if it were greater poison. The keg weight did not change until I filled a bottle from it again and put it back in, whereupon it showed the two dose lighter weight. I repeated with a second plant and the same thing happened. Both plants are at the 1/8 resource stage.

    I double dosed the two plants with greater heal & greater strength potions. I'll add to this post tomorrow whether the plants get sick from two un-needed poison doses.

    The plants are apparently seeing the keg contents as greater poison.

    Keg being used was in a backpack inside her main pack.

    ========================================

    Plants tended normally with the keg labeled deadly poison.

    The keg returned to the normal empty keg text upon running out.

    The next keg stayed labeled greater poison until I filled a bottle from it. Then changed to the deadly poison label.

    The bottles labeled deadly poison give a greater poisoned weapon.

    The bottles labeled deadly poison give the greater poison pain message when drank.

    (I used to do service calls over the phone. The more info about a problem the better. :) )

    ==============================================

    Both poisoned plants survive so far. One mildly & one severly poisoned. Both showing healthy. :)
     
  4. I was using stacks of bottles not kegs. The bottles are labeled correctly. And its not just poison - cure is doing the same thing. I've been taking care of these same plants this way for days - didnt have this problem until last night.

    I'm using the EC - will try with the cc and report back.

    I was able to tend to my plants using potions in bottles. Hmm, what client do you use?
     
  6. FOUND THE PROBLEM! It appears if you have ANY kegs in your backpack, even empty ones, it fouls up the process of caring for your plants. This keg bug passes itself on to everything - so dump your kegs before you water - and check under that cloak just incase one is hiding in there!

    My gardener is having no problem tending plants in the usual fashion other than the the keg name change if I take a bottle out of it. The plants take the rest of the potions from the keg without any problem.

    The gardener carries the kegs in a work pack within her main pack. Maybe that is doing the trick for her.
