    Rubble that is locked down just decayed/despawned in my house.....

    Lost:
    Half a rubble boat
    2x Rubble Fires
    Half a Display case
    Half a tapestry
    Fire pit

    I saved the rest of my rubble. No non rubble items missing - Chessy had just come up from server down.

    Makes you wish EA had heard of QA. Commiserations.

    i lost 1 yew table part that was in a secure box (in my magincia house). There were 6 pieces and one is now gone. Also, when i transferred some rubble from the rares fest, I swear I lost some part of a rubble picnic bench.'

    Yep, i had 2x 3 piece picnic benches, the middle section on both are gone from my bank box. Weird.

    Doing another survey of my museum, looks like a rubble dock piece (Top rope pier piece) is gone as well.

    missing from same sector as mag? or just from anywhere on shard? or just the isle?

    looks like their mag cleanup routines grabbed more then just items stuck on the ground but also rubble items from event.

    That's my guess too. Something turned on to remove the remaining stuck rubble and it's affecting regular rubble now. Why my bank box was affected, I don't know.

    Well, your bank box was affected because all items are stored in a database, with a few fields designated to naming the location, and x,yz coords.

    So, the rubble in your bank might be listed as:

    Rubble - Bank Box - Player ID Number - 120 - 34 - 1 - Mag Rubble

    That will make the rubble show in your bank box in the same position every time. Unfortunately, the 'Mag Rubble' property seems to be the same as the Mag Rubble on the ground, so when the script they used to clean the ground "DELETE * FROM items WHERE type = 'Mag Rubble'",
    it doesn't discriminate from where the location is, just that it is of proper type.

    They should have been more clear in their command, to exclude bank boxes, private houses, and backpacks.

    Yeah, hilarious. Someone loses hundreds of millions because of a mistake purely on EA's side and you find it funny.

    And you're a moderator?


    If anything, that's amusing.

    Was your character in Magincia? As your bank is stored on your character I believe.

    yah, I think this is correct..... I'm steering clear of that island for now, and I didn't even get a plot there

    Here is the weird thing. I had the rubble on LS in a bank there. Before I transferred, something didn't look right, I usually pair up parts to complete them. I noticed my tables and benches were incomplete but I was moving a lot of stuff around so I didn't think about it.

    Transferred and this morning I took another look and I'm missing sections. To be honest, I don't care much except for the one middle yew table part for my bar. I had 6 pieces in a secure crate and today just 5?

    I emailed mesanna too. But people should check their bank boxes and any rubble they had stored on magincica.

    I had posted a picture of all the crap Dev's never cleaned up - people just laughed at me. Like IRL.. You bought property that had demolished buildings and debris everywhere, Then you mixed yours in near it?? It's an automated cleanup system. While I'm really sorry for your Permanent loss of items, <opinion ends here>
    Can't you just wait to buy in to the Next Great Thing that's released?

    I checked my house and everything is fine.This must be Mag houses and if this is going on I would give your rubble to someone else to hold until they find the root of this. I wouldn't even leave them in your banks.

    Question...was there a way to test this on TC since it was a backup
    of GL. Did anyone place and maybe deco and not notice or did it not
    go poof there?

    Mesanna Emailed me back. She is working on the issue. Patience young skywalkers.
     
  21. Wish I would've known this was an actual issue... I had a piece disappear 3 days ago on Origin.
    Half of my rubble bench was gone, but since the other half was still there, I thought I had accidently unlocked it, but I remember mousing over both pcs to make sure they were locked down. It just didnt click at the time that maybe I wasnt losing my mind.
    *sigh* sorry all.. if I had known this was a problem and not my mistake I would've said something before you guys had a chance to place and deco. =(

    Lighten up Jr, it was a joke, it's only a game. I myself lost some, so you see me crying over it? And mine was no where near Mag!

    After sitting & taking care of my mom for the last 2+ weeks with stage 4 cancer, loosing a few pieces of rubble is the least of my worries.
