    I am thinking about resize my house but I am worried that some of my items will drop to ground. become unmovable and prevent house placement. For example, old guild stones, some really old statues, etc.

    Anyone know wheter they will prevent house placement? Which other items will prevent placement? Thanks!

    Good grief ftw!!
  5. omg! Thank you for sharing that with us. People should wait a while for all the bugs to get fixed with house resizing. There are still ways to cheat.

    There are even "Invisible Objects" that will block house placement. I tried to resize my house the hard way (before the placement changes). I filled my bankboxes and toons with as much items as i could and let a couple of things fall to the ground while i tried to resize. I couldn't even put the same house back there and it turned into a nightmare trying. In the panic that followed :sad4: i ended up placing a smaller house and locking my stuff back down before anyone noticed.

    WARNING: House Resizing

    There is a known issue with house resizing at the moment - if you have items in a moving crate and resize your house, the moving crate goes "poof!" with all the items in it. We will have a fix for this in the next publish, but in the meantime, make sure you've emptied your moving crate!

    Also, something to keep in mind - your ability to place your house will be dependant on the *current* house placement rules. It's possible that some older houses were placed under a less-restrictive set of rules, and if the house is demolished, the original square footage (tileage?) will no longer be available according to the current rules. A buffer zone is required of five tiles north and south, and one tile east and west. Be careful!

    Just a thought about that "lost house in luna thread"(chessy) ... mmmmm nope, just checked, pretty large placement in place ~~11x14 ...

    Shame we got no further info on "whuat huppened" ... tool use ... blockage ... campfires ... *sigh*
    but, then again ...
    some of those moongate houses ...allowed, disallowed, allowed but "no more" ...

    just saying ...someone is BOUND to try and resize one of them ... eh?

    Another question: I have seen luna houses on multiple shards that look quite strange - two houses connected by a 3rd house in south-north direction that has no space between them. This 3rd house has no steps nor house sign. What is the deal with that?

    Just for the few who may not know. Just because a house will fit, or can even be placed at all, on the Fel side, does NOT mean a house can be placed in that same spot on the Tram side.
