    A Note On Mouse Holes

    If you place a mouse hole on top of another mouse hole, the void thus created shatters the stability of the local reality metaframework and the holes will be removed to an orthagonal dimension.

    In other words, don't stack two mouse holes on top of one another or they will go poof!

    No more so than if you try to put two wall torches next to each other, and miss the tile by [] that much, and one over-writes the other one.

    They've got bugs with their item placing stuff, and as usual, it's our responsibility to find them and point them out, because they absolutely refuse to leave stuff on Origin for more than two, three days.
  4. Does the mousehole do anything? Is it worth getting?

    There are far more problems with mouse holes than just putting them on top of each other. I know of two people now who have lost mouse holes, and one lost two. First she tried to use circle of trans to place the hole on an outside wall (she didn't realize you "couldn't" do that), her mouse hole vanished forever.

    She got a second mouse hole, tried to redeed it at one point, and this one also vanished completely. My other friend also had what happened to her second mouse hole happen to his. He tried to redeed it, and it disappeared. In both cases they was no second mouse hole involved.

    The mouse holes are seriously bugged, my advice is, if you have the deed, don't use it until they are fixed.

    They are just deco, very small, hard to see deco. If you polymorph into a slime, or use the rat ninja form, if you try to enter the mouse hole, you will be kicked out and fall a floor in your house, if the mouse hole is not on the first floor, complete with a cute little message. :)

    All shards will be published with the following during their next regular maintenance:

    * Archery Buttes should now be useable when placed
    * Blue players are no longer able to heal faction members in Felucca
    * Event Quest items such as Bloodied Parchment, Soggy Parchment and the Note from Casca are now blessed so players can not lose them
    * Melissa’s Cloak can no longer be used as Powder of Fortification
    * Corroded boxes will no longer get stuck on the ground when opened outside of a backpack
    * Issue was fixed with the Mouseholes so they can be axed to deed form.
    * Guards will not be aggressive to newly tamed pets in town nor will newly tamed pets be ignored by mobs
    * Yonns will now accept Mininova Wands, Jaana’s Hangover Cure, Pink Champagne and the 300th Anniversary Coins
    * Yonns will no longer accept House Decoration Tools

    for a decoration that actually does nothing useful and can't even be noticed, it's a wonder why people choose this reward. but when they vanish like this, especially from something as SIMPLE AS STACKING, it is very disappointing to know that there must be absoltuely NO TESTING of this stuff before it is send out

    Out of all the mistakes the devs make, surely there are TESTING CHECKLISTS or TESTING SCRIPTS. Literally, how could you have not tried this on Origin or TC with something as simple as stacking!!!

    Release it now and sort out the problems later? that is so stupid.
