    Go back to publish 79.

    Is it me, or does it seem publish 80 created just as many new bugs as it purports to have eliminated?

    This "bug fix push" was a massive net negative in terms of actually removing bugs from the game. "Pentagrams no longer move when you customize your house, also your house was reverted to before you bought it, and the character you transferred was deleted. LOL."

    In my experiance in any game I have played and through all the years of uo. Anytime you work to fix something, something else is normaly impacted. Some of the buggs they fixed was with us for around 10 years. All you can do is follow the pipeline of bugs so to speak till they are all fixed due to one minor change. Takes time and takes people reporting them. But I am no expert.
    I think the house bugs is from the new retrieve option that was put into the game, to help players with thier house though i havn't played with it much.

    My suggestion is they dont do a big push - Do a little one, test it, and get it right.

    ...

    Yep, do a small one, get ir right, get it out, do the next small batch and so on. Large bug pushes have ALWAYS been problematic when patched/published all at once in the past.

    For the next BIG publish can we just have a Common Sense publish?

    I have to say, though, stacked fish pies = :heart: for me. So maybe we need to work on the priority of bug fixes, lol...but, I'm a hoarder, so...

    Actually I think if there were a publish that did nothing but identify and make items stackable that should be stackable would be a great hit with just about everyone.
    They could even make craft tools combinable like fish baits so when I make 20 or 30 mortar and pestles, I can combine them into a single tool with a ton of charges.

    "I think the house bugs is from the new retrieve option that was put into the game, to help players with thier house though i havn't played with it much."

    I am still confused why this was even done...and if it is the culprit that caused some of the housing
    bugs...definitely remove it.

    the why is clear - unreachable items in the house (i.e. such floating in air after customization) have caused a high amount of GM calls. By making all items retrievable from where ever in the house you are this part of GM business should be history.

    The thing I would like to see most in coming publishes is stackables. There are plenty of lists out there, but this would free up more storage than anything else could.

    Power crystals
    holiday deeds
    goza deeds
    Heritage tokens
    SS Fragment Tokens
    - Any tokens of a like kind really
    Grass/Snow tiles
    Powder of Fort

    Man that would clear out about half my storage right there. Tons of other items could use this feature too. In my humble opinion doing a small publish where they focus on making 50-100 items stackable would have a huge impact.

    Then... most importantly... make things stackable going forward as new items/deeds/gifts are put into the game.
