    Maybe they are going to fix account age again. I seem to be 2 or 3 months behind where I am supposed to be.

    Only thing I have noticed in the last few days is there is severe lag in my main characters castle now that I can barely move around in it since the last patch. It all started more just the other day too with me. Nothing has been added to the place in the last 3 wks to a month. I could move around in the house easily before, now it's a complete lag fest. Even logging in with characters that are logged out in that castle takes an enormously long time to load up. Any other house they log out in is not an issue, but be logged out in that Castle takes forever.


    Just a thought, now could this lag be in any way connected to being able to lock items down in courtyards of castles? I don't have any, but possibly related could it be???

    Yikes! Was it set as a primary residence, or was it grandfathered? Had you placed another house in the interim?

    :( You might want to contact Mesanna. I don't know if she can do anything, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

    What do you mean "unlimited" ????

    Players log in, check their rewards and it says "unlimited" ? Or does it say an extremely high number ?
    Or is it the regular number but claiming them does not deduct from the total tally ?

    "Unlimited" rewards really does not explain much of what happened...........

    Was it suspended for more than three months? If so, your house probably decayed.

    Anyway, you can send a private message to Mesanna here on Stratics.

    If your account was not paid for/inactive for more than 90 days it starts to decay and will collapse.

    That would make sense. This guy no one has ever really seen popped on Siege selling vet rewards pretty cheap and never seen him since that one day. He said they were all accounts he had reopened and was looking for gold.

    Maybe you did use the setting in UO Assist to hide the gump?

    Maybe this is an account wide option of UO assist once configured for one account, just don't have it on my hands here at work.
    But easy to try: Start UO client without Assist.
