House Question

    I took ownership of a house on an account that alrdy had a house. I then realized i used the wrong account and my reg house went idoc, so i ASAP removed the house from that account. My house is still idoc one day later. It didn't refresh at server up so I'm asking if anyone knows if it will ever refresh or do I have to transfer this house to keep it from going idoc?

    Once Condemned/IDOC you will have to transfer it to another chara Bud on another account. No way to save it on that acct. If you have more then one acct, which I figure you do, just shuffle houses around. Then once all have been done, you can always reshuffle them back to how they were (back to orig owners) after the 7 day wait period

    You will have to transfer the house.
    It's a pain, which has been introduced to hit "professional" placers who needed to keep open a separate account for placing their loot and sale plots.
    Now, with the delay after a house falls I see this becoming rather obsolete.
    (Ok, people could still place for loot plots on IDOCs in several areas on several shards, but the quick place and sell mentality is not bringing enough profit any more on the most shards to keep extra accounts running.)
    Besides that the current rules make it nearly impossible to help somebody with house placement, if the own account already has a house. Especially if the other person seems to be unable to hit the spot. In earlier times one would have placed himself and traded the house in such situations. And if you are in the time penalty for 7 days, you cannot even "showplace", since the valid plot does not stick long enough for the person you want to help to see where it is. The timer should only hit at the confirm placement in my opinion.

    ....I could have sworn this was a by product of the one house per account per shard Based on the huge population UO had when they put that rule into effect, I don't think it had anything to do with idocs back then. Unless you are talking about the 7 day rule, that one I don't remember where it came from but it really has nothing to do with his problem =\
